The COQ® cheese trolley has been created by Patrick
Sarran both designer and craftsman. It is dedicated to fine
gourmet restaurants and can be customized.
These carts are fitted with a ventilated eutectic cooling
system. Once the hood is closed, a fan releases a layer of
chilled air over the cheese. The chilled air is released over a
two-hour period by a ‘eutectic’ cold pack that needs to be
placed in the freezer before use. Condensation is simply not
an issue because of the ventilation and materials employed.
Cheese remains fresh and dry throughout service.
A warning light indicates that the fan is working and that the
battery needs charging. A full recharge takes three hours,
while the trolley offers seven hours of battery life when fully
charged.
COQ® is very compact, light, easy to move, manoeuvrable
and stable. With just one hand on the hood, waiters glide
effortlessly between tables in even the smallest dining
rooms, carry the trolley up or down a few steps, elegantly
serve cheese and put back the space-saving trolley in its
storage space.
Suggesting cheese to diners, moving the trolley around,
removing the hood, extending the board, serving cheese
and finally closing up the trolley are all effortless, making
diners want to be served.
At the end of service, the cheese board can be removed,
covered and placed back in the fridge ready for the next
service. Cheese protected from sudden changes of
temperature and unnecessary handling will not be wasted.
The COQ® cheese trolley can be dismantled into easy-to-
clean sub-sections in less than a minute, without the need
for any tools.
The COQ design accord with Luis Sullivan formula, form
follows function.
