Public Persona

Andy Warhol famously proclaimed that everyone would have 15 minutes of fame.Social media has effectively turned that quaint notion on its head.  With everyone able to instantly broadcast, we experience fame all of the time in 140 characters or less. For those of us who’ve jumped on the bandwagon, our working life has become a virtual one - and except for a few stragglers, who hasn’t?We spend much of our time broadcasting in lieu of narrow-casting, communicating through the crowd, as much as…See More

The Inside Scoop

Stick a fork in whoever has been feeding you lies about restaurants, they’re done.  We have the inside scoop on eating out, and we’re dishing it out.  Are you - like me - one of those closet-watchers of restaurant reality shows?  You know, the ones where a foul-mouthed and/or burly sledge-wielding Brit bludgeons our American operators with all of the things that they’re doing wrong? You might find it ironic that one of the aforementioned proponents of local flavors now espouses his dedication…See More

50 Ways to Kill Your Cook Staff

The kitchen is a very dangerous place. I was reminded of this recently while breaking down a trade show.  Four weeks afterwards, and I’m still recovering from painful second and third degree burns from hot deep-fryer oil.   There’s no doubt about it.  If you want to maim or kill somebody, the commercial kitchen is the place to…See More

Another Shopping Season

The last thing that I want to think about during the winter solstice is more shopping. Yet, here I am pondering the greatest spree that that the foodservice equipment and supplies industry has to offer. It comes only once every two years and thankfully, it is in a warm place in the dead of winter. The NAFEM show in Orlando, FL, February 7-9, 2013 is many things to many people.  But, at its heart, it is still essentially a bazaar in the fine traditions of the country fair, the medieval market…See More

Count On Me For Counter Intelligence

This may be the oldest of all foodservice fixtures known.  The humble counter has served us since antiquity.  Separating the server from the patron, displaying the wares, maintaining the integrity of the food, or just facilitating the transaction, the counter has been a (sometimes invisible) component of our foodservice world for millennia.Originally ensconced in pharmacies, counter restaurants gave birth to the fountain soda industry.  Quick-service (formerly known as “fast food”) restaurants,…See More

Hi Joe, I'm new to fohboh and was looking for some local (NJ) members in the groups I added to my page today. I happened upon you and found your blogs and subsequently your "food for thought" page on your website very interesting. We're not exactly neighbors, as I am esconced in the lovely Pinelands of Ocean County, but still NJ nonetheless. I tried subscribing to your "food for thought" but was having some difficulty getting the page to load. I'd like to add you as contact mostly because I like to keep everything pertinent to my locale. I like to maintain business contacts within the state of NJ as much as possible. Would that be alright? BTW, I'm so curious... how did Cliff, the "well credentialed professional chef" get that sweet gig?

Regards, Kitty

I wanted to personally invite you to join our discussions in regards to cheeses at the Cheese Group on FohBoh. Every week we introduce a new cheese and invite you to find it in your area, buy it, try it and then dicuss it with us. We could use someone like yourself who could give us some good, positive feedback.

TED TALKS VIDEO

TED: James Patten: The best computer interface? Maybe ... your hands - James Patten (2013)

"The computer is an incredibly powerful means of creative expression," says designer James Patten. But right now, we interact with computers, mainly, by typing and tapping. In this nifty talk and demo, Patten imagines a more visceral, physical way to bring your thoughts and ideas to life in the digital world, taking the computer interface off the screen and putting it into your hands.

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?
