Strategies for a Strained Economy



from http://www.chefsprofessional.com/strategies.html

Nov. 2008



We’ve been through a few years of ever better good times in the industry, and now again, we are paying for it. While two years ago the options for restaurant professionals were endless, they are now..well less endless.



You know the problems: Rising prices, some municipal administrations like San Francisco passing ordinances which take hundreds of thousands of… Continue

Well, that's special, but I am not, rather in Paris and trying to get my work done with limited computer access. Less grafitti would be appreciated. Chef John who?

Thank you, Michael..It's Jo Lynne..sort of like Billy Joe Bob..the more names you have on the first line, the bigger the trailer. (OK, never owned one, but happened to get born below the Mason Dixon Line, but I still count as a SF native).

We have been building the structure for Guest First (www.guestfirstgroup.com) as I have been expanding the chef consultancy functions of the agency (will be up soon, I hope). Today we arranged for the old corporate chef for one of the cruise lines to take over the consulting chefs as well as the emergency chefs, as Howard Cummins continues to deal with our management recruiting. All and all it's been a challenging two months.

Thank you all for your comments. We have added a page of links to Howard Cummins space, Prohospitalitysearch.com, with links to many good recent articles about the industry, mostly from the management side. www.prohsospitalitysearch.com/links.html - please enjoy.

Up to my neck in IT and internet presentation, thank you very much for asking. Hope all is well.

Hate to ask this, but we've met? Just asking. It's possible that I am just slipping a cog here.

TED TALKS VIDEO

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.
