    Not a review but i need help!

    Those dimensions say deli pan to me, so they probably come out of a prep table refrigerated unit.

    Going solo with my cheesecake

    A couple of things I have learned along the way. People will not always like what I do. People will freely give me their opinion of what I do. The degree to which my tighty-whities get in a bunch is up to me.

    Maybe the answer they were looking for was "write an invoice and present it upon delivery of food".

    Thoughts On New Concept In DC

    Sounds good at first, but I would imagine it would be logistical nightmare. What industry is base business operation in? How large (seats) is dining area? Any BOH staff or chef working solo? Who pays for product? What happens with leftover product? Where is product coming from? Who gets sales...

    Going solo with my cheesecake

    You answered your own question. Research the market in your area to see what others are getting for cheesecake. Just curious as to why you answer anger with anger. Does it make you feel better or is it if you can't beat them, join them? At any rate, FWIW, it makes people less likely to respond...

    HELPPPP NEED TO CLEAN MY NOODLE/Pasta cooking equipment..

    Have you tried filling them with water and detergent, turning them on, bring to a boil, reduce to simmer and letting them go for an hour. Turn off and let cool until you can get in there with a stainless steel scrubber?

    MAY 2020 Challenge - Out of the freezer

    Oh man, I already have a picture worked out in my mind... but I don't have near the plating and photography skills of morning glory, so no pic for now... but then I have been known to do stupider things, so who knows? :~)

    Full Buildout...

    It worked out for me but I felt my skill-set and stubbornness would play to my favor in the scenario. However one thing to keep in mind about a build-out is the time element involved. I was anticipating a 3 month time frame, it took 6, and what I have learned since then is that 6 months was...

    MAY 2020 Challenge - Out of the freezer

    Congrats morning glory! Great job as always. Finished the chicken gumbo. From the freezer came more of the cooked chicken breast rescued from the neighbors dying freezer, okra, and chicken stock. Started by making a dark roux and that was chocolate colored. Threw in the holy trinity of onions...
