Thai Curry Carrot Soup

Pacific School of Religion (Berkeley, Calif.)

This soup recipe is vegan and quite popular at the Pacific School of Religion, according to Chef and Manager Andy Maxon. “It’s one of the few soups we make that runs out every time we make it,” he says. “The reason we use yellow curry paste is that it’s the only vegan one. The red and green pastes both have shrimp.” Maxon suggests adding a dollop of coconut milk and basil leaf for garnish.

Here’s how operators are openly blending meat with other ingredients—or eliminating animal products entirely—to take protein to another level.

In April, dining halls at Yale University in New Haven, Conn., began offering the Beyond Burger, a...

Aside from Black Friday shoppers, there may be no crowd of people more eager to get to their bounty than wedding guests headed for the passed appetizers. While they’re surely thrilled for the bride and groom, that feeling comes second to the thrill of landing that first shrimp skewer—especially after a long ceremony. Same goes for work-related cocktail parties. Caught up in an awkward conversation? Oh look, it’s the mini-grilled cheese guy!

This month, FoodService Director takes a deep dive into catering, from the latest and greatest in menus to starting a new program at your...
