I'd like to learn how to improve my menu by first learning how to taste and cook. I've bought a few items over the last couple years to get started, but just didn't.
Tools I own:
1/2 sheet Blodgett- old.
panini grill 14x14
sandwich cooler station ( 3' wide)
small griddle ( no hood)
small steam table
pretty old KA mixer (heavy)
pizza stone (like to explore stromboli or something like that)
and I have a proofer (big ol thing)
Joy of Cooking
How to Cook Everything
Best Soups/Stews Cooks Illustrated
King Arthur Baking Companion
and a few others.
Small town atmosphere in rural South. My roastery/espresso bar is almost out of place, but people are slowly coming around. a small college here helps too.
Thanks for reading this post.
btw, I have seating for about 40 and have a small dual zone case at the bar for people to see what's available- has been sadly lacking for a couple years : (
