Our Managing Director, Alex Demetriou recently presented at the NFAN (National Farm Attractions Network) annual conference demonstrating how operators can successfully de-skill their kitchens to adapt to current industry challenges, while still offering great quality food.
During his session, Alex selected a member of the audience with no cooking experience and provided him with all the ingredients and equipment he needed to cook four beef burgers 🍔 🍔 🍔 🍔
The finished burgers were then taste-tested by four experienced business owners and foodservice operators, and due to the carefully selected sauce profiles and the quality of the ingredients, such as Monterey Jack cheese, the pre-prepared burgers took less than 10 minutes to prepare and were awarded either 8/10 or 9/10 from all four judges.
Alex also focused on quick and easy was to ‘premium-ise’ simple dishes to enhance margins and increase customers’ perception.
And he did it all while recovering from major knee surgery!
We’re supporting our members with operational guidance like this each and every day – because we’re operators too!
