What Customers Don’t Know About Restaurant Work

Culinary Cues

More difficult than you may have thought, more chaotic than you might expect, more poetic than you realize, and more fulfilling than you would understand: this, to me, describes the environment of the professional kitchen that few customers are able to view or experience.

THE 2021 CHEF SKILL SET

Culinary Cues

It is always safe to say: “things change”. Change is an inevitable part of life and as we all know if we fail to recognize that and adapt – we can become obsolete.

The Breakfast Cook – Tough, Dependable, Organized, and Fast

Culinary Cues

There are cooks and there are cooks – each has his or her list of responsibilities, required skills, and bag of tricks. Just because you are listed on a schedule as a cook does not necessarily mean that you are adept at filling every position under that designation.

THE EINSTEIN MOMENT FOR RESTAURANTS

A CHEF’S REFLECTIONS

MARC MENEAU – ONE OF THE WORLD’S GREAT CHEFS

Culinary Cues

There are chefs who have mastered the craft of cooking, chefs who have built a public brand that defines a region or exemplifies a cuisine; there are others who give to their community and as a result uplift those who call that community “home”; and there are those who push cooking in new and exciting directions.

CHEFS – WHAT DOES YOUR MENU REPRESENT?

Culinary Cues

Consider this – the menu is the most important component of a successful restaurant and once designed it can, and should, impact every other aspect of the business.

THE RESTAURANT ECO-SYSTEM NEEDS HELP

Culinary Cues

There are a number of reasons why restaurants fail – some are predictable and avoidable, while others can catch a business off guard. None, however, are as devastatingly out of the operators control as this pandemic. Even the best operators are at a loss for solutions.

CHEFS – FAILURE IS NOT INEVITABLE

COOKS AND CHEFS – WE ALL CRAVE DISCIPLINE

Culinary Cues

THE COOK’S INTELLECT

Culinary Cues
