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

Their Steaminess Was Brazin'

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: 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.

TED: Jeremy Kasdin: The flower-shaped starshade that might help us detect Earth-like planets - Jeremy Kasdin (2014)

Astronomers believe that every star in the galaxy has a planet, one fifth of which might harbor life. Only we haven't seen any of them -- yet. Jeremy Kasdin and his team are looking to change that with the design and engineering of an extraordinary piece of equipment: a flower petal-shaped "starshade" that allows a telescope to photograph planets from 50,000 kilometers away. It is, he says, the "coolest possible science."

TED: Norman Spack: How I help transgender teens become who they want to be - Norman Spack (2013)

Puberty is an awkward time for just about everybody, but for transgender teens it can be a nightmare, as they grow overnight into bodies they aren't comfortable with. In a heartfelt talk, endocrinologist Norman Spack tells a personal story of how he became one of the few doctors in the US to treat minors with hormone replacement therapy. By staving off the effects of puberty, Spack gives trans teens the time they need. (Filmed at TEDxBeaconStreet.)

TED: Jennifer Senior: For parents, happiness is a very high bar - Jennifer Senior (2014)

The parenting section of the bookstore is overwhelming—it's "a giant, candy-colored monument to our collective panic," as writer Jennifer Senior puts it. Why is parenthood filled with so much anxiety? Because the goal of modern, middle-class parents—to raise happy children—is so elusive. In this honest talk, she offers some kinder and more achievable aims.
