@Someday I would agree water is actually a fine alternative. There are many decent store bought stocks and it does have its place. Sometimes you don't have the time during the week to make the stock or in high production situations have stock base makes sense. There is no doubt to me that when you make your own stock and then make anything from that base you and your friends and family will enjoy it more. 
What if you bound the lemon curd with something else to keep it together and then incorporate it?
@French Fries I agree I would not use a capon for coq au vin they are expensive and as you said not really suitable for a braise.
Welcome @Cinnamon Snail glad you joined ChefTalk. We don't actually have a food service management owner forum but I think your best bet would be to post in the pro-catering forum. Let me know if you have any questions about ChefTalk.com
Welcome @thriftstorecook glad you joined ChefTalk.com. I would love to see your collection of cooking gear you must have a pretty good amount. I find shopping in thrift stores or antique shops great places to find equipment for your kitchen. It would be fun if you posted some photos of your collection. 
Welcome @ChristopherH  glad you joined the forums. Is there a particular type of food you are interested in learning about? Please let us know if you have any questions about the forums.
Welcome to ChefTalk Nikki sounds like you have two great passions. I think you could probably teach people how to cook healthy meals which might be enjoyable for you and helpful to people. I think there is a real need for people to know how to approach food in a healthy way that is also tasty. Let us know if you have an questions about the forums, thanks for joining.
Hi Lisa (@lady1marine) welcome to ChefTalk.com glad you joined our community. This forum is only to introduce yourself I think if you want more feedback on your question you should post in the food and cooking forums. However, here are my two thoughts. I would not pair a shrimp salad course with a shrimp soup course it is redundant. Now there is nothing that says you can't but I think it is good when you vary your courses. The salad sounds wonderful and very refreshing....
