    Tomato sauce help

    Very true. I can use the same tomatoes (San Marzano) purchased at different times and some will be more acidic than others. Depends on how and when they were grown. I even see the same problem with prepared marinara.

    walk in cooler for new restaurant

    Why nationwide? How big of a cooler? Not saying you should necessarily go this route but coolers can be had on-line, shipped to you and (almost) anybody can set them up. I certainly can understand wanting good quality but I kinda think you are overthinking this. You aren't going to get a company...

    Post covid thoughts and predictions for hospitality industry?

    I agree that this isn't the place for that discussion. Suffice it to say that I only mentioned teachers to illustrate how this has degraded us as human beings.

    Post covid thoughts and predictions for hospitality industry?

    "In 1954, clinical trials using the Salk vaccine and a placebo began on nearly two million American schoolchildren. In April 1955, it was announced that the vaccine was effective and safe, and a nationwide inoculation campaign began."

    Post covid thoughts and predictions for hospitality industry?

    Handful is right. Just the fact that the CDC agreed to make policy based on politics and not science is damning. This is also why they made kids wear covid masks in schools all day. Teachers are afraid and didn't want to go back to work. They had no regard for the kids. That's child abuse. So...

    Post covid thoughts and predictions for hospitality industry?

    Been vaccinated for many months now, both myself and my wife. Polio is a fecal transmitted virus that is highly contagious from touching surfaces or contaminated water and food. It mainly affected small children and kids probably because hygiene is not in their vocabulary at those ages. It's...

    Post covid thoughts and predictions for hospitality industry?

    This is why people are starting to come to the realization that the CDC and WHO have no credibility. They are controlled by the government along with most main stream media. I don't think I mentioned this here, but I'm old enough to remember the polio epidemic back in the 50's. I was in third...

    Post covid thoughts and predictions for hospitality industry?

    Lockdowns?? No. The politicians are afraid of losing their power so they are using the delta and other variants as an excuse. What do you have, one test positive? I've been noticing what goes on there and it's disgusting. In the US we are told that the vaccines will take care of the variants...

    Labor/help situation. A crisis?

    I all boils down to knowing how to run a business and that's knowledge sadly lacking with most small businesses. Most small business owners are proficient at whatever it is that they do or sell but have no idea how to make a profitable business out of doing it. So you can't expect them to pay...

    Labor/help situation. A crisis?

    No, there is no shortage of workers. Just people who are willing to work in the hospitality field. You just gave the reason- "working in the industry has always been known for long hours, pay issues and other issues". During covid people have learned to adjust to not having their jobs. Maybe...

    Guess you are part of the problem if this is too difficult for you to understand.

    Labor/help situation. A crisis?

    If you Google "long hours and little pay" you will see a picture of a restaurant. That's an attitude that only makes the problem worse. Instead of figuring out ways to attract and retain good workers like other good businesses do, this is basically saying screw you if you don't want to work...
