‘Casamia’ – winner of Gordon Ramsey’s Best Restaurant Award

‘Casamia’ – winner of Gordon Ramsey’s Best Restaurant Award – has chosen Silestone worktops for its new cookery school.

Based in Bristol, the cookery school is the next project from the renowned brothers, Jonray Sanchez-Iglesias and Peter Sanchez-Iglesias of the Michelin star Casamia restaurant.

Casamia was also the winner of the Gordon Ramsey Best Local Restaurant award in 2010 and their new project, the cookery school uses over 16sqm of the new Silestone ‘Cemento Spa’ finish from the Silestone Sports Series in their kitchens, which has been fabricated and installed by Cosentino approved fabricator Shaw Stone Ltd and installed by Cathedral Kitchens of Malvern. The cookery school also features a striking Silestone Integrity sink in Blanco Zeus.

Silestone by Cosentino worksurfaces are composed of over 90% natural quartz crystal, which is virtually non-porous and their surfaces have nearly four to five times the flexural strength of granite and a high resistance to scratch, stain and heat. With a ten-year warranty, Silestone is available in over 60 distinctive through-body colours with a shade and consistency that is not found in natural stone.

A full website from the Sanchez-Iglesias brothers is due soon but they have a temporary site up for the restaurant here.
