looking for advice

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So...a few problems in this kitchen with temp control on defrosting (seafood primarily) , burger temps and cooking process, and need of new recipes for sides and specials. I don't kno how to go about fixing these issues and not sure how to bring in new ideas. It's typical starter menu burger and fries simple dinners and mostly fried food. Small kitchen with a HUGE seating capacity. I need simple quick and easy sides and specials. We have high volume and no way to keep up. Please any advise will help so leave a message I'm am open to anything. P. S. I have knowledge and experience but my fellow workers aren't as passionate or as knowledgeable as I am.......

Can you be a bit more specific on temp/defrosting problems?

As for recipes and specials-

Different meats to make the burgers is a current trend. Also different cuts of beef mixed together.

Burger toppings from different cultures.

Burgers with seasonings, cheeses, etc. mixed in. 

Different batters for the fried foods- beer, tempura, yeast, etc. 

Different quick salads with unusual ingredients. Coleslaw made from Savoy cabbage, or seasoned with spices from different cultures. 

Macaroni, potato salad with unusual ingredients or made from different pastas or potatoes and different unusual dressings.  

When you get a chance, visit various ethnic markets. That always sparks a lot of ideas for me.
