Award winning integrated communications consultancy, Liquid, has opened its state-of-the-art kitchen studio in the centre of Birmingham as part of the new business offering, Kitchen by Liquid.

Situated on the third floor of New Oxford House, Waterloo Street, the 760 sq ft kitchen provides a unique content creation space ideal for food and drink photography, videography, recipe development, cookery classes, demonstrations and events.

The modern, yet homely studio features a fully equipped demonstration kitchen, two large islands, large south-facing windows, an additional prep kitchen space, breakout areas with seating and a separate board room with a dining table seating up to 10.

Designed for filming recipe videos to camera with ease, the central island has a built-in induction hob, retractable extractor fan and plenty of surrounding counterspace, while the large shelf behind can be dressed by the food team, using in-house props or by sourcing specialist items.

The kitchen also boasts the latest technology and equipment including smart ovens, stand mixers and sous vide water baths.

Since its completion in November 2019, the kitchen has enabled Liquid to produce in-house content for its growing roster of food and drink clients, with recent projects ranging from videography for butchers and farm shops to the creation of a Christmas cookbook for international food board, Maple from Canada.

The space has also been utilised for specialist events including a masterclass with Britain’s Best Chocolatier, William Curley in partnership with Waitrose and a virtual cook-along with Michelin-starred chef, Glynn Purnell, to support Birmingham City Council in raise awareness of homelessness charity Change into Action.

The launch of Kitchen by Liquid builds on the agency’s continued investment in its food and drink service offering and strategically follows the recent appointment of full-time development chef, Olivier Briault.

Prior to joining Liquid, Olivier worked in some of Birmingham’s finest kitchens including stints at Michelin-starred restaurant Simpsons and The Edgbaston, where he won ‘Best Afternoon Tea in the Midlands’ for four years running.

Kitchen by Liquid is headed by Liquid’s chef director and chief operating officer, David Colcombe, who holds a wealth of experience in the food sector with achievements including cooking for G8 leaders and running a successful 2 AA rosette restaurant for 10 years.

David is a member of the Royal Academy of Culinary Arts and the British Culinary Federation, as well as an Honorary Fellow and visiting professor at University College Birmingham. In 2015, he was awarded the prestigious Louis Cipolla Award for the “greatest contribution to the profession” by the British Culinary Federation.

Speaking of the new business offering, he said: “The launch of Kitchen by Liquid is a really exciting development for Liquid, allowing us to grow our expertise in quality content creation for our food and drink clients.

“We’re in the unique position to offer a professional standard, fully equipped kitchen for hire in the heart of Birmingham and are looking forward to seeing how we can use it to further expand our offer and support further brands, companies, organisations, chefs and individuals.”
