Action Station Ideas

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

Hello Chefs,

 

I work at a private boarding highschool and I need to come up with some ideas for action stations. They would be for approx. 60 to 70 students/staff. They would be done during dinner service and would have to be manned by a single chef.

 

Some ideas I've had so far are:

Bananas Foster Station

Decorate your own cupcakes

Pasta/Stir fry station (this one would be a bit intensive and pushing the limits of being doable)

 

I was hoping I could gather some more ideas from this marvelous community.

 

Thank you!

Wing Cart with a couple dozen sauce choices (and a create your own wing sauce with basic components?)  Also offer naked/flour dusted/breaded. 

 

A light flour dusted wing tossed in fresh General Tso's Sauce over Broccoli with toasted sesame seeds isn't your everyday wing.

 

just an idea

Salad....use martini shakers to mix/dress, lettuces are displayed in chicken wire which is way cool

 

Cereal....fruit (dried and fresh), nuts, different cereals.....again shake and serve

 

Vietnamese spring rolls.....

 

Banh mi

I would go with a pasta bar too or maybe a burger bar.

Besides  the baked potato bar you could also offer  a variety of stuffed potato skins. And an Ice Cream bar is always a hit

How long is dinner service?   I've done fajitas, fish kabob, stir fry, sushi, pasta.  All of it for brunch service stretched over three hours.
