Catapult Makes Headlines for London Kitchen Recycler

A London-based business has turned to Lancashire-based PR consultancy, Catapult PR, as it helps design-conscious homeowners across Britain own the kitchen of their dreams, or recycle one that has already given them much joy and many lifestyle benefits.

Catapult PR is now immersed in the world of designer and ex-display kitchens on a daily basis, having started to work with innovative London business, The Used Kitchen Company, whose CEO, Looeeze Grossman, pioneered the concept of kitchen recycling 12 years ago.

The consultancy is putting kitchens from over 40 manufacturers in the spotlight, including much-desired brands such as Chalon, Boffi, Bulthaup, Mark Wilkinson and Siematic, which are sold at www.theusedkitchencompany.com at prices between 50-70 per cent less than their recommended retail price. Many of the kitchens showcased also include top-notch appliances within their purchase price, making them incredible bargains.

Through its promotional activity, Catapult is helping to find new homes for breathtaking kitchens, islands, dressers, light fittings and accessories and communicating how those wishing to own a kitchen with kudos can adapt kitchens and add personal touches, to suit their preferences.

Word-of-mouth recommendation from one of its Lancastrian clients put Catapult in touch with The Used Kitchen Company, after Looeeze Grossman exhibited alongside that client at Grand Designs Live, in October. Both had been chosen to be ‘Green Heroes’ by TV personality, Kevin McCloud.

Catapult produced a creative PR proposal that highlighted new promotional ideas that The Used Kitchen Company could employ and which also suggested a 2018 campaign message of ‘skip the skip’ – a rallying cry to encourage homeowners to recycle their kitchen, rather than sending it to landfill.

Over the past 12 years, The Used Kitchen Company believes it has saved 10,000 tonnes of waste, granite, quartz, glass and other materials from being scrapped, helping to reduce the strain on landfill sites that are struggling to cope with a mountain of waste.

This, and other quirky angles used by Catapult PR, have already seen The Used Kitchen Company featured in The Sun, The Express, Delicious magazine, Your Home, interior design portal Inex and KBB (Kitchens, Bedrooms and Bathrooms), within the past few weeks. PR is delivering a great return on investment.

This success has led to the possibility of Catapult handling other work in London, thanks to Looeeze Grossman now recommending the agency to other contacts and businesses.

Catapult PR’s managing director, Jane Hunt, says: “This is a fabulous account to work on, as amazing kitchens are continually arriving on www.theusedkitchencompany.com, sparking new ideas. Looeeze is an inspiring business woman and we aim to exceed her expectations throughout the year ahead.”

Catapult PR is building on huge success in late 2017, when it scooped more PR and marketing awards than any other PR agency in the north, winning five different trophies, as well as being a finalist for a further 10 awards. It has previously worked with other London clients, including Cocorose London and Essential Travel.

From the food editor: Mastering the frittata, with help from a lot of mozzarella cheese

Lets talk about frittatas. Specifically, how I can never seem to make one that actually tastes good.

They are described in blogs and cookbooks as an easy, breezy dish suitable for using up leftovers lingering in your fridge. Like a quiche, but low-carb!

Sure, the process seems easy: cook some veggies or other fillings in a skillet, add cheese, cover with eggs, bake. I have attempted it a handful of times at home. But it wasnt until just a few days ago that I made one I wanted to keep eating. Do you have dishes like that? Things that you never really bothered to learn how to make properly, so you shy away from it? One of my cooking goals this year is to cook 10 things I never have before. Much could go on that list. But I am also trying to embrace those things that seem just out of reach, things I have dabbled in but know I could do better. I think finally got there with the frittata.

To be fair, I think I was expecting too much from the frittata, which will never stack up to a quiche, a similar egg dish that sits on buttery pie crust. There is just no contest. It is its own thing, an eggy one-pan wonder that really is a great vehicle for a wide variety of ingredients: diced potatoes, roasted red peppers, chicken or steak, asparagus, mushrooms I could go on.

The real problem is that I was overcooking them.

Until a couple years ago, I was unreasonably squeamish about a runny egg. I still dont like yolks oozing entirely over my meal, but I have come to embrace a softer egg; I adore a hardboiled one with a still-jammy yellow center. So my tendency has always been to cook a frittata until there is no sign of wiggliness. Again, this goes back to the quiche: Its hard to overcook a quiche, which typically needs at least 30 minutes in a hot oven to come close to setting. Not so with the frittata. This thing goes from not ready to overcooked in the amount of time it takes to wash the raw egg off your hands.

So this time, I kept a very close eye. The frittata starts cooking in the skillet, then goes into the oven. So I set the oven timer for a mere 5 minutes, and worked my way up. I landed on 7 minutes until my eggs were mostly set, then took the skillet out of the oven and let it sit, while the piping-hot skillet continued the cooking process a bit more.

I cut a big wedge out of the skillet and placed it on a small plate, grated some Parmesan cheese on top and sprinkled some fresh basil. The bottom was a light brown, with a nice crust from the cast iron skillet. The rest was light and fluffy, dotted with spinach (which helped keep things moist) and mozzarella cheese that pulled into a long strand when I took a bite. It was the heartiest breakfast I had in weeks, and also one of the tastiest.

Mozzarella Frittata

For this recipe, youll need a skillet that can go in the oven. I would recommend cast iron or nonstick, but make sure the nonstick is oven-friendly. Not all are. I used a 6.5-inch cast iron skillet. For larger skillets, anything more than 9 inches across, double the amount of ingredients listed below.

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 shallot

2 cloves garlic

Salt

Pepper

2 cups baby spinach

4 eggs

4 ounces mozzarella cheese, preferably fresh

cup Parmesan cheese, grated

Red pepper flakes

Fresh basil, chopped, for garnish

Heat oven to 400 degrees.

Heat the olive oil in an oven-safe skillet set over medium heat. When oil is hot, add shallot and cook for 2 minutes. Add garlic and cook for 2 minutes more, until both are softened. Season with salt and pepper.

While shallot and garlic are cooking, place spinach in a bowl and add enough water to mostly cover the spinach. Heat in microwave for 3 minutes, or until spinach is wilted. Drain, then squeeze spinach with your hand to drain even further, making sure to get rid of excess water. Add spinach to skillet with shallots and garlic and cook for a minute or so, breaking up spinach into smaller pieces with a spoon.

Add mozzarella to skillet, and cook until it starts to melt slightly. Add Parmesan cheese, then pour the eggs into the skillet. Swirl eggs around to make sure they cover the contents of the skillet. Season with salt and pepper, and red pepper flakes, to taste, and let cook for 3 or 4 minutes, until the edges of the egg are just starting to set.

Place skillet in oven and cook for about 7 minutes. At this point, check frittata by cutting out a tiny slice. If eggs pour into the spot where the slice used to be, they are not quite done. If the eggs hold firm, take frittata out of the oven.

Let it sit for a few minutes in the skillet, then cut into wedges and serve with fresh basil and more Parmesan cheese on top on each wedge.

Serves 2.
