    The Future of Culinary Education

    Written By Ryan Hodros, Pastry Arts Student An article was brought to my attention last week that brought to mind a great deal of what was taught during my time in the Pastry Arts program. (If you’re interested in the full article, Culinary Educators Dish on The Next Generation of Chefs). The article discusses a survey conducted by culinaryvisions.org where they asked people in culinary education, both students and instructors, on aspects of the culinary field. While the article makes a number of good points, specifically about practicing local and sustainable menu development and education on modern cooking techniques, I feel that the article is asking quite a bit out of a culinary education. This is especially poignant in the articles inclusion of the bullet point “Working with a global pantry of ingredients to prepare a wide range of ethnic offerings.” I’m not going to argue [...]

    The Importance Of Online Ordering

    While the recent quarterly reports for most major pizza corporations have shown another boost in domestic sales from online ordering, many independent pizzerias experience further financial trouble by staying offline. Singular shops, who do not have the financial luxury of corporate backing, either believe that they cannot afford full-scale internet branding or do not have the knowledge to create their own. As a result, many successful businesses are losing previously loyal customers to their online counterparts. Online ordering has become the norm for many corporations. Recently Domino’s commercials have begun to encourage use of their website by focusing on the faults of ordering over the phone. The shift in preferred method is due to the fact that online ordering attracts more customers and brings in higher ticket orders. It is estimated that a menu posted online has a reach of 20% [...]

    The Chilean Wine Revolution

    After decades of successfully exporting good quality entry level wines, Chile has emerged as an important producer of premium wines. In cool climate coastal regions such as Casablanca, San Antonio, Elquí, and Limarí, several wineries are crafting crisp and mineral-rich Sauvignon Blanc and elegant Pinot Noir. In the more temperate regions of Maipo, Aconcagua, Colchagua and Cochapoal, they are turning out richly flavored Carmenere and fruit-forward red blends. And in the South of Chile in the Bio-Bio, Malleco and the Maule Valley, wineries are proving they can produce distinctive Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and terroir-driven Carignan. Indeed, the emergence of premium quality Carignan in the hot dry Maule region is proving to be an exciting success story of the Chilean Wine Revolution. Carignan is not new to Chile. It has been grown in the Maule Valley for more than 70 years. First planted [...]

    Let the Games Begin

    Catering an event like the Olympics can be a tough sport. Here’s how to win. By Eve Daniels, Editor, Catersource magazine The first-ever Winter Olympics took place in 1924, in a small resort town in France. The event drew some 10,000 spectators in person, in total. Back then, a global TV broadcast and live internet stream were the stuff of science fiction. Fast-forward to 2014, and the 22nd Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia, is expected to reach billions of viewers worldwide. For U.S. viewers, NBC will offer primetime coverage of nearly 100 different events this February. That means a lot of hard-working commentators, producers and technicians setting up shop in Olympic Park. That also means a lot of mouths to feed. “Imagine taking 5,000 people camping for two solid months, serving 12,000 meals a day,” says John Crisafulli, president of Behind the Scenes (BTS) Catering.
