Every bite of this omelet is filled with great flavor. The cod adds just the right amount of salt, and the spinach not only tastes good, but adds good color.

Ingredients

1⁄2 lb. salt cod
8 cups spinach, sautéed
16 eggs, beaten
1 cup dry white wine
Salt and white pepper, to taste
1 cup aïoli
Sautéed peppers, if desired
Mixed greens, as needed
 

Steps

1. Soak salt cod in plenty of cold water (in the refrigerator) at least 24 hr. Change water
2-3 times. Drain cod, pat dry and gently flake, season, and reserve.

2. In a separate bowl, beat together eggs and wine; season with salt and white pepper.

3. Per omelet: Melt butter In a small nonstick skillet over medium-low heat. Pour approx. 3⁄4 cup egg mixture into pan and cook just until egg begins to firm up. Layer half of the omelet with spinach, 2 tbsp. of aïoli and 1 oz. flaked cod. With a spatula, gently fold omelet over, encasing ingredients. Continue cooking until egg is cooked through.

4. Flip omelet out of pan; serve with sautéed sweet peppers and a mixed green salad.

Team uniforms are a way we encourage fun. I tell the mangers that every person on your team needs to look like a member of your team, but they can decide together what they want to wear. When the students see a cafeteria person that is matching and having fun with their outfits, they relate to those people better. We don’t want them to look stiff and stuffy.

“This is the best meatloaf I’ve ever had,” a diner at Alcatel-Lucent telecommunications in Naperville, Ill., once told chef Iraj Fernando. The dish was rooted in a tried-and-true source—the “Betty Crocker Cookbook.”

“I just seasoned the breadcrumbs differently, used fresh parsley and beat the eggs to make them frothier,” says Fernando, executive chef and manager for Southern Foodservice Management.

Consumer interest is up for classic and comforting meat dishes like meatballs (16%), beef pot pie (26%) and meatloaf (12%) for dinner now compared to two years ago, shows...

We have spent considerable money making cafeterias cool again. New paint jobs, crazy color patterns, custom graphics and changes in lighting schemes have made some of our cafes popular gathering places. We’ve also experimented with videos, cable TV programs and music. We involved a number of student groups and student input in improving the atmosphere, especially in our high school and middle school cafeterias.

With all the hype around probiotics, we decided to create a daily dish that incorporates probiotics in addition to prebiotics. You rarely hear about prebiotics, and this was a great way to highlight how the two work synergistically to maintain a healthy gut. Our chefs have developed menu items such as roasted salmon with yogurt and mint vinaigrette; kale and quinoa salad with warm maple dressing; and leek soup with pickled cucumbers, to name a few.
