    How To Make All Restaurants Safer for Employees

    How To Make All Restaurants Safer for Employees

    Asking the Right Questions I have worked in many different restaurants. One day, I had become tired and annoyed about how the business I was in charge of was being run. I came to terms with this simple truth. I did the same thing day in and day out. I had mastered all the different stations, completing tasks at speeds that can only be considered superhuman, wearing my body down. I started doing things like flipping cups around and catching them to entertain myself. I created a better way to stuff French-fry boxes and learned to handle fry baskets one-handed. Even these gave way to boredom and my mind once again started to wander. My mind was always struggling to find the next new thing. I began to look around my job, and my brain commenced to ask questions, “How do I stop stray lids from falling back behind the drink station? How do I keep napkins, straws, and stray cups from being kicked under the counter?"

    How Much You Can Save By Cooking Will Shock You

    Cooking is a great and rewarding skill, but it is something that many people just don’t do. In fact, it is estimated that only 20% of Americans cook their own meals from scratch. The majority of Americans are now spending the majority of their evenings eating out, getting takeaways or cooking ready meals.

    A Curry, A Chardonnay and a Surprise

    A Curry, A Chardonnay and a Surprise

    Chicken Curry. Heavily spiced, deliciously burning. A dollop of cool, calming plain yoghurt. The creaminess bites through the acid and heat of the curry to give you a moment of peace, just before you go back in for another bite of pure and delicious torture.

    Decorating

    Decorating

    I decided to learn how to decorate my dinner plate so the plate's presentation looks good and tempting that people would want to eat the food I cooked. Many years ago, I was dating this guy, saying it's all on how you present it. He used to tell me if you want people to eat what you made, you have to decorate your plate with food, so when you present the plate, it looks very tempting with the presentation. I never understood that and always questioned why because it's the food that people eat, not the presentation. For the past few years, my little sister moved in for a year, and she took over the kitchen and cooking. Every time she would serve me food, my plate full of food would look very pretty, and it would make me very happy while I would eat it. No matter what she made, she, her presentation of the plating, would look very beautiful. After a few months, I started to notice that, and that when my ex's word made sense to me. "It's all in the presentation." So from that day, I started watching her how she would begin decorating the plate and how I looked forward to her presentation. I learned how to proportion each plate with carrots, beans, spinach, rice, mash potatoes in each corner, and the meat either in the middle or side. Whatever or, However, she felt the presence of the plate would look good. I learned something new that day, and every day from there until she left, I learned how to set the plate with all the things she would cook for that day or night. After she left, mom took overcooking, and with mom, she would cook without any presentation, just simple and ready to eat. My mom may have the same thinking as me, right! Why? It's what you eat, not how the plate looks. But now that mom decided to travel and visit my two other sisters. I am left home alone to cook my meal. I figured now is the time to get hands-on and start trying the plate presentation.

    Top 3 Cooking Oil Disposal Tips

    Top 3 Cooking Oil Disposal Tips

    Kitchens are going to get busier during the holidays, but this doesn't mean that safety is going to be overlooked. In fact, fire prevention guidelines must be enforced better during the holiday season. Holiday celebrations are expected to involve plenty of cooking, and the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) reports that the peak day for home cooking fires is Thanksgiving, which is followed by Christmas Day, the day before Thanksgiving, Easter, and Christmas Eve. In addition, cooking was the leading cause of reported residential fires from 2014 to 2018.

    Eat, Drink and Just Try to Stay Merry

    Eat, Drink and Just Try to Stay Merry

    As a caterer who lost their job to the horrors of the COVID-19 pandemic, I often find myself looking through new recipes to try my best at wowing my family since I no longer have an audience to impress. I find that now has been a great time for trying these new things or coming up with new favorites (or resurrecting old ones). While cooking huge meals for groups of people or even my family has been the biggest part of my life, one of the big things I will always enjoy for myself is a stiff drink and a good appetizer spread. I think it’s the mother of two in me that tends to find myself ‘snacking on the run’ throughout the day rather than taking the time to eat a full meal. Have you ever tried loading a washer with a fork full of green beans? And god forbid the extra dishes! After cooking food for my household if I end up with time to sit down, I want it to be a peaceful quiet moment with my drink and simple food I can eat with my hands. One of the best combos I’ve come to find in this specific situation is an Apple Pie drink and a beautifully displayed charcuterie board with all my favorite items. Their both simple and can be relatively inexpensive. Oh! And NO COOKING!!!
