Inner City Volunteer Chef

Well hello fellow foodies.

I was so lucky in my food career and now I am settling down in Akron/Kenmore Ohio as a Volunteer Chef. "First Glance" started a great Teen Center and now one whole floor devoted to teen moms and down the road a teen home.

Last tuesday was the first day in the new teen mom area and the kitchen is mine. We will also have a full commercial kitchen one floor up for a future catering business I will run.

I need feedback, input, advice and… Continue

I had not logged on here for a long time and remember when it was just a new site.....well you have done well. I am just getting back into the working world again and since I am a foodie I wanted to try to make some connections here at FOHBOH.

I will be relocating to Cincinnati, Ohio in a few weeks. I would love to find a small Mom & Pop restaurant that would enjoy my down home cooking and my restaurant attributes. I'm not looking for big pay just an honest weeks pay and in… Continue

Value Of A Restaurant?

Posted on April 23, 2008 at 3:47pm 4 Comments

How do you determine the value of an independent restaurant or to be more exact a coffee house?

The actual real property is on a 5 year lease, the cafe is equipped with albeit small, a full commercial kitchen. There is also a very nice large mobile kitchen to compliment the whole package.

I know the average daily gross and the owner will show us the books but he is open to lease or sell and wants us to make him an offer. The business runs fine as is but the owner wants to be… Continue

How do you turn a Coffee House into a Small Foodie Cafe?

Posted on April 8, 2008 at 3:56am 3 Comments

Yesterday we had a great afternoon with a potential partner that owns/operates a small coffee house. This gentleman roasts his own beans and has a nice small business with a drive up window and the usual muffins, cookies but not much at all for food. There is a full restaurant(albeit small)kitchen not being used. He also has a full mobile kitchen not being used at all so that would be part of this deal. My chef partner and I love doing fairs/festivals and concessions and this would be perfect… Continue

We really look for experience in both management and restaurants but have hired candidates with one experience in only one of the categories.
We do not usually have much lunch business, with the exception of our downtown locations, so our managers work primarily dinner and late night shifts.
Hope this information helps!

TED: Hamish Jolly: A shark-deterrent wetsuit (and it's not what you think) - Hamish Jolly (2013)

Hamish Jolly, an ocean swimmer in Australia, wanted a wetsuit that would deter a curious shark from mistaking him for a potential source of nourishment. (Which, statistically, is rare, but certainly a fate worth avoiding.) Working with a team of scientists, he and his friends came up with a fresh approach — not a shark cage, not a suit of chain-mail, but a sleek suit that taps our growing understanding of shark vision.

TED: Michel Laberge: How synchronized hammer strikes could generate nuclear fusion - Michel Laberge (2014)

Our energy future depends on nuclear fusion, says Michel Laberge. The plasma physicist runs a small company with a big idea for a new type of nuclear reactor that could produce clean, cheap energy. His secret recipe? High speeds, scorching temperatures and crushing pressure. In this hopeful talk, he explains how nuclear fusion might be just around the corner.

TED: Sarah Lewis: Embrace the near win - Sarah Lewis (2014)

At her first museum job, art historian Sarah Lewis noticed something important about an artist she was studying: Not every artwork was a total masterpiece. She asks us to consider the role of the almost-failure, the near win, in our own lives. In our pursuit of success and mastery, is it actually our near wins that push us forward?

TED: Matthew Carter: My life in typefaces - Matthew Carter (2014)

Pick up a book, magazine or screen, and more than likely you'll come across some typography designed by Matthew Carter. In this charming talk, the man behind typefaces such as Verdana, Georgia and Bell Centennial (designed just for phone books -- remember them?), takes us on a spin through a career focused on the very last pixel of each letter of a font.
