Italian chef-restaurateur Massimo Bottura is to showcase the HotmixPro at a tasting menu event at Mayfair auction house Sotheby's.
The chef-patron of three-Michelin-starred Italian restaurant Osteria Francescana and author of the book Never Trust A Skinny Italian Chef, who uses the HotmixPro in his kitchens, will create a seven-course tasting menu on 27-30 June, using the mixer for many of the dishes' elements, Exclusive Ranges and Pro Foodservice Reps (PFR) have announced.
Manufactured in Bottura's home town of Modena, Italy, the mixer is designed for chopping, mincing, mixing, blending, beating, creaming, liquidising, whisking and kneading, and can also weigh ingredients and apply temperature control by single-degree increments. It can also cook sous vide, work with sugar, and make ice-cream.
Pro Foodservice Reps represents Exclusive Ranges' Plug & Play products for the professional chef, which also includes the Hold-o-mat holding cabinets from Hugentobler.
Bottura has also worked with Alain Ducasse at Le Louis XV in Monte Carlo, and at the now-closed El Bulli with Ferran AdriÁ .
