Tuesday, 11/16/21 10:00 AM – 5:00 PM

Pecinka Ferri Culinary Center
3 Spielman Rd., Fairfield, NJ 07004-3413

We’ve recognized that, as major retailers have adopted the ghost kitchen model, there is a growing need for an overview of the concepts, planning, development, and execution of successful operations. Our Ghost & Ventless Kitchen Forum will be showcasing both the nuts and bolts of ventless appliances and the many nuances of ghost kitchens.


Join us for a complimentary day of mock-up ghost kitchen and live cooking vignettes by our chefs in the various environments on ventless appliances, along with a classroom component centering around costing, menu development, marketing, real estate and technology, with speakers from the operator and the manufacturing communities.

Admission is free and open to operators, consultants and designers, real-estate developers, dealers, and distributors.

🤔 Discovery Day💡

By | Company News, Food for thought | No Comments

Delve into discovering some new ideas for Discovery Day.

Foodservice is as broad in scope as are the cultures it emulates.  Beyond cuisines, we find great disparities in service, mores and traditions. 

Preparation styes and equipment vary immensely.  Components such as seasonality, daypart, temperature preferences, levels of sweetness, salinity, umami, sourness and bitterness all conspire to constitute a diverse palatte (and palate).

Get to know a few more unfamiliar aspects of our comestible heritage today.


If it is one thing we have clearly learned during COVID, is that the social isolation & boredom has had a massive impact on the quality of life of folks in Residential Care.
 
Research during COVID is showing us that the Homes that have a more relationship centered focus (versus task focused) have been more successful in ensuring residents are connected, less apathetic and have better health outcomes.

Proven solution for hundreds of Health Care Communities:

📻 10-4 Good Buddy 🚚

By | Company News, Food for thought | No Comments

This week begins with 10/4.  That means “understood” in radio parlance. 📻

How much do we really understand?  Apparently we only retain 15% on average of what we “learn” – unless we review it.  What lessons have we learned in the last 17 months?  Much of that body of knowledge is rather dark in retrospect, and many woould rather forget most of it. 🏫

To move forward one must continue to strive to learn.  To break from this morass, we need to broaden our horizons.  To borrow a phrase, in foodservice, “It’s a great big world out there, someone’s got to furnish it”.  🍳

With all that is new in the industry, with all that has changed, how do you keep abreast of it all?  In- person learning is necessarily making a comeback.  Industry events have finally safely and successfully resumed. 🎫

There are a plethora of highly anticipated affairs next month. Will you be rejoining the community in person?  Will we see you in November? 🙌

10-4, good buddy…
