CHEFS ARE ALL IN AND ALL OUT

Culinary Cues

Working very hard is not unique to foodservice – there are many careers that require extra-human effort, but very few that absolutely require individuals to be “all in”. By “all in” I am referring to total commitment, building your life around the demands of the job, and most significantly to do so while being oblivious to the impact that this commitment has on other aspect of one’s life.

RESTAURANT OWNERS – WHAT ARE THEY THINKING?

Culinary Cues

The more I travel, experience communities, and try their restaurants – the more I scratch my head and ask the question: “What are they thinking?” The restaurant business is one that is relatively simple in concept, yet enormously complicated to execute. Develop a product that people are willing to buy, prepare it consistently well, make sure hot food is hot and cold food is cold, serve it quickly and with a smile, and provide value for the money spent. Simple right?
