Additional Tips

This sauce can break if held too hot, so hold warm.
To hold sauce warm, add boiling water to an insulated coffee urn, allow it to sit for 3 minutes, remove water and hold sauce inside.
Infuse fresh herbs when reducing the wine to add more flavor.
Substitute grated Parmesan cheese for Asiago for another delicious option.

Great with seafood and fish. Can be good with pork, chicken and pasta.

We started inviting chefs and FSDs from other districts to come prepare lunch.

Tapas, grain bowls and late-night breakfast all originated from this group.

We’ve been very impressed with this new model, and it shows great promise in getting meals to children who otherwise would not be able to leave their housing project.

Having never personally experienced a hurricane, I can only imagine the horrors faced by the millions of people whose lives were affected by Harvey and Irma in late August and early September. It’s a group that comprises uncounted noncommercial operations, including Houston Independent School District, which serves 215,000 students.

But from that tragedy has come one of the most impressive feats of foodservice I’ve seen since coming on board at this magazine, partially spearheaded by Nutrition Officer Betti Wiggins , who only just joined the district. For the entire school year,...
