Should have fired three. I think he is keeping Matt and Jen for entertainment purposes.
How about the sweat soaked pasta Matt cooked~
Since they are not skilled where are the thermometers that would have eliminated Lourosses undercooked meat..
I can't wait till next week and see Rock. Now that was a good season. I am glad to see he has been successful. None of these people are ready to be a 250k executive chef.
Come on Matt I can smell your ending. Sooner… Continue

This weekend was Memorial Day Weekend, also known as the start of the summer grilling season, which, in my opinion, is a great season. Nothing beats a great burger and an ice cold drink on a bright, sunny day. Not to mention the fact that May is National Hamburger Month.
In the spirit of the beginning of this season burgers have started to make a bit of a come back. Not that they have ever really gone away, but sometimes burgers get overshadowed during colder months by comfort foods… Continue

Don't pitch your corks after you polish off your wine!
There's a lot to like about cork as an eco-friendly material: it's harvested (primarly from the Cork Oak tree, or Quercus suber) in a way that doesn't harm the tree, making it almost unendingly sustainable (harvested in moderation, of course); it's almost totally waterproof, making it suitable for both indoor… Continue

If you have viewed our videos you may have seen the Aldelo POS video and the Customer 2 You video, both of which can help to grow business by streamlining many of the functions that you do on a daily basis and add to your customer base. For a limited time over the summer, we want to get as many customer ON-LINE as possible. You need the sales! People will be sticking closer to home this summer with gas prices high and looking for your restaurant on-line.
If you are a New Restaurant,… Continue

I've always had an interest in food; eating, creating, dreaming, craving. Last month, I attended an open house at North Shore Community College, and I won the raffle for a free course. The decision was made.
My first actual cooking course won't be until fall when I take Introduction to Basic Culinary Techniques
. Right now, I'm studying Principles of Food, Beverage, and Labor Cost Control
. As boring as it sounds, it's not. Business people are more culinary savvy, but few… Continue

Happy Memorial Day Everyone!!
At least at my particular restaurant, Memorial Day is sloooooowwwww. If I wasn't working, you can bet I would have a apron on, margaritas in a blender, and more than likely a hangover tomorrow. HAHA. However, like most of you all FOHBOH peeps, holidays for us restaurant peeps can either mean SUPERKICKASS everyone working sales, or " Hey, let's clean everything today." Number two was my task with my associates today. I think the smell of polish is forever… Continue

there's a lot of great stuff in the blogosphere these days...I came across this link on How to Eat Out Cheaply and recession-proof your dining habits. I thought I'd share it because the rising costs of gas and transportation costs is really affecting the restaurant industry hard. As consumers grow more and more cost and value conscious, the tips that ordinary customers are sharing about their dining habits should be invaluable to all of… Continue

It looks like everyone who attended the NRA Show in Chicago this year had a good time and I am no exception. Usually, I only spend two or three days there, but this year a friend needed some help with a pre NRA private food show for chefs and buyers, so I ended up spending an entire 6 days in this lovely city. (My liver is still complaining).
Instead of the usual $1400-$1600 hotel bill, I decided to rent an apartment for the week.
It was my first experience with Craigslist and I… Continue

I started composting much of my food scraps last year. I knew I wanted to start a vegetable garden this Spring (and I have!), and I feel the 2 go hand in hand. I always struggled with the first steps of composting. How do you do it? Yes, I have a container, but what’s the ratio between food and grass cuttings? What about the smell? What about… Continue

Just back from our first show at NRA in Chicago. There have been a few posts about this experience and what we thought of the show, which was awesome for our young, 140 day-old, growing enterprise. However, this post is about status…continuing our theme of being… Continue

One of the most talked about and least understood areas of cost control is food cost. I am always surprised at how often restaurants struggle to control food cost. While food cost is widely talked about it continues to be a challenge to restaurant operators and managers alike. My goal is to outline a few very specific ideas that if followed can have an immediate impact on your food cost and consequently your bottom line. In order to have an effective approach to food cost, everyone must… Continue

The chart of the week is daily world crude oil output versus demand. This is a demand story. As the chart depicts below, crude oil production and demand have trended very close to each other for the last eleven years. Four of the last eleven years demand has outpaced production and it just so happens that two of those years were 2006 and 2007. From 1997 to 2002, daily crude oil demand rose by 5%. From 2002 to 2007 demand grew a whopping 13%. (Here’s where the data gets really interesting.)… Continue

For those of you who were unable to attend the NRA Show (that’s the one with food – not guns) this past weekend, I just wanted to give you a recap of some of the highlights. We had strong attendance for all of our CHART members who were presenters this year, to include Gail Lyman & Todd Woodruff who both gave their first ever presentations at the NRA show and received tremendous feedback. Other speakers included funny man Rob Gage, who was… Continue

Going out to dinner should be a bunch of little surprises of happy and delicious moments. Like the surprise when you go to walk through the door and someone is standing their with a smile, the door being opened for you and a great big ole welcome.
Then when you sit down, Your drinks get to your table pretty fast from the bar, then you are ordering your meal, and this delicious hot appetizer comes to the table with some plates and extra napkins, sauce and a very nice smile saying… Continue

While some thought it was not well attended, I thought the NRA show in Chicago was an amazing experience with crowds of people. It is truly amazing how big this show is. Over 2,500 exhibitors and over 73,000 attendees. Clearly Chicago's largest convention.
We enjoyed meeting several folks from the NRA at their booth over the past few days, and look forward to presenting to them at their offices tomorrow morning. Since we are becoming… Continue

Make sure that you thank all of your wait staff today and wish them all a happy National Waiter and Waitress Day. According to the Web site Holiday Insights
, today is a day to acknowledge “the value and importance of a good waiter or waitress.”
While servers are thanked daily with tips from customers, it is a nice idea to step back today and think about all of the important things your servers do for your… Continue
