A small issue someone can help me with.
I have been hired to manage and run a small kitchen in a bakery where savory's are being sold. It's been a head scratcher so far, I think mainly because of the owners business approach, but nothing other than the menu had been defined. I helped write the menu and then after many re-writes the owner came up with what he wants.
In the meantime I'm creating the "sandwich's" that are being there signature sangies and all else. So far nobody has told me that what I was doing was not acceptable but boy wouldn't I like for them to sit with me and tell me what it is they want!! Frustrating for sure.
People are enjoying my foods and returning. Good sign so the recipe book is being written accept for one item. My meatballs. Have to admit they are fine and I have the acceptance from my co-workers ( rare because everyone's meatballs are always better haahaa ). But these are mine and I don't want to put the recipe in the book. Just don't . I have been making these this way since childhood. My Noni's recipe.
I feel as though in order to save my own recipe I have to switch it up some so they can have it but I want everyone to love my meatballs too. You see nothing is in writting so Im just going at it with food. This is my dilemma, do I keep making my meatballs and not put it in the recipe book OR do I give them something completely different???? Because the day I move on from this place the recipe book stays. Obviously.
The owner is the kind of guy that would say "hell just buy them then!" He hasn't even tried them yet but Im trying to give them good and real food. I already gave them a couple of recipes but they don't have the sentimental attachment .
Keep going or switch it up ???
