our brand new look

new website
new frontpage

We’re beyond excited that our full content based, brand new website is now life!

The result of the new design (we believe!) is a clean, simple and most powerful look and feel using a user friendly-interface. 

We love that we’ve bucket the common design trends in the food industry and made a choice to stand out rather than blend in. And most importantly, we’ve kept our design values of bold, positive and simple at the centre throughout the entire process.

By taking a minimalist approach, we’ve been able to create a unique look that sits well with our products and serves as a good brand recognition booster. Having said that we have re-branded the name of our food stall as a tribute to the owner’s loss of his much loved brother Rainer recently.  Rainer’s Bavarian Grill will from now on be the theme of our mobile food business and you will soon see a transformation of our ‘can’ to reflect the changes.

This might sound crazy, but one of the things we love the most about the new emerging website is the challenge to develop parts of it as we go along. Stefan Schenkelberg is currently putting all efforts into the task of taking our small business to the next level.

The healthy approach to cooking does make a difference; The design shows prominent images of an incredible business couple from Germany, whose lives have been changed through the help of the Brits that have faithfully purchased our products to spoil their taste buds. We can’t wait to keep changing more lives as the serving of our food products from Germany keep ticking.

So now we’ve told you what we think of the new webdesign so far. We want to hear what you think! Take a look and scroll through the pages and please leave a comment.

Have a lovely weekend!

Warm wishes and Guten Appetit from all of us here at Rainer’s Bavarian Grill

Rayleigh School Fayre

Gourmet Express Mobile Catering – developed to become your one-stop-shop

In the Summer of 2011 they started off the season with a bang. Our Lady of Ransom’s Catholic Primary school was the host of a spectacular Back-To-The-Future themed Summer school fayre.

The Parents Association Summer Fayre was attended by hundreds of pupils, ex pupils, their families and members of the community. The sun shone and what a roaring success this event proved to be! The ‘can’ proved to be versatile as always; Gourmet Express delivered hot snacks and another stall run by parents of the parent’s association spoiled the many visitors with home-baked cakes and pastries.

Air-frying technology, a make or break for the food industry

‘The technology to improve health and wellbeing is there: Use it or do something else’ Stefan Schenkelberg said.

“a stern warning to restaurants and chip shop owners by the owner of Gourmet Express Mobile Catering”

airfryer

A gadget, used in their kitchen, that uses super-fast air to make perfect chips without any oil.

When it first became introduced to the market, about 3 years ago, it sounded like a lot of hot air, it’s now proven reality ..because it is.

Philips has invented a frying machine that it claimed gives you that same satisfying fatty taste – but without the oil.

For now over two years Gourmet Express Mobile Catering uses this gadget to serve (and to have served thousands of satisfied customers) customers and they all are full of praise of the new exclusive new technology once they have tasted the food.

We feel it is about time to explain the technology a bit more. The AirFryer uses Rapid Air Technology, hot air in other words, to cook the kind of meals that would traditionally be dunked in a deep fat fryer.

By circulating air up to 200C around foods like chips, sausages or schnitzel, Philips has proven that they have invented the right equipment that is able to brown them off nicely with up to 80 per cent less fat and not sacrificing the taste.

The AirFryer looks quite the opposite of a bulky deep frying machine for commercial caterers, it looks like a large rice cooker and has a chunky tray which can be removed, filled with food and put back inside.

Twelve minutes later the meal emerges hot and crisp and, as a proven fact, far healthier for our customers.

It produces a brown and crispy finish – and cuts the calories – in everything from schnitzel/ pork loin pieces to scampi.

A batch of handmade chips would need just half a spoonful of oil and will take 12 minutes to cook. We use oven ready fries and we cook them to a crisp in just nine minutes. Hamburgers (we call them Frikadelle), Bratwurst or Schnitzel are dealt with in similar times.

The device uses a grill and a fan to blast very hot air around food at high speeds. This achieves what scientists call the Maillard effect, the browning and crisping process seen when food is fried, roasted, toasted or even baked.

Because fries are so popular, they are responsible for Britons consuming 240,000 kilos of hidden fat every year according to research conducted by Philips.

Our AirFryer has helped cut this figure, and allows customers to enjoy their favourite meals with a clean conscience.

The device is a perfect solution for those nervously using traditional chip pans, which are notorious for being the cause of major fires in chip shops throughout the country. More than 50 people die in the UK alone due to chip pan fires.

About two years ago, Rob Dobson, the commissioner of London Fire Brigade, which had just launched its Cooksafe campaign about the danger of chip pans, said, we quote: “Any gadget that reduces the number of people cooking with lots of hot oil is a good thing.”

Crucially, it tastes most satisfying and that has proven to be a fact.

It also has an air filter so, no matter how much like fried food it tastes like, our kitchen won’t give off smell like a chip shop.

Airfryer technology, advanced solutions that help contribute to people’s health and well-being, ‘Gourmet Express Mobile Catering’s owner Stefan Schenkelberg said.

“The technologies we use live up to that promise by helping people live a healthy life. Healthy cooked food should be the way forward to any food conscious thinking establishment including the small family owned fish shop ‘around the corner’ in this country. I believe we have in our early years on the market already proven to be an encouragement for the catering industry in general to improve ‘their act’; the technology is available, if they don’t use it they should do something else: it’s the health and wellbeing of customer at stake and every caterer must use their authority to make an impact.”
