Best Food Processor or Equipment for Catering/Meal Delivery
After reading your similar thread in the pro chef forum I have come to the conclusion that no matter what anyone says you are hell bent on using a machine.
So knock yourself out and buy one.
Everyone (both home and BOH) needs a processor of some sort IMO.
Just remember everything needs a prep of some sort (peel, remove less that optimal areas, cut to fit the machine feed tube...) and IMO once you have the hand tools and cutting board out you are just wasting time (and remember time is money) stopping to set up a machine (and then there is the clean up).
Have a great soup recipe handy for all of the veg pieces that turn out not so pretty.
Have you eaten the pre cut veg from the supermarkets?
They may look pretty but the mouthfeel is nasty IMO.
The chemicals used to keep them looking fresh leave an aftertaste as well.
Just not good business to try and hold the majority of raw (salad) veg you are talking about.
Have you not heard that freshly prepared (quality) salads are the new sliced bread?
