Steps

CHEESECAKE:

  1. COMBINE cracker crumbs, sugar and butter; press onto bottoms of 4 (9-inch) springform pans (or onto bottom of 1 springform pan for trial recipe).
  2. BAKE in 325ºF standard oven 10 min.; cool.
  3. STIR cheesecake batter in each tub until creamy; pour over each crust. Bake as directed on tub; cool completely. Refrigerate several hours or until chilled. Cut each cheesecake into 12 slices.

EGGNOG Sabayon:

  1. Whip egg yolks and sugar over simmering water until stiff and doubled in volume.
  2. ADD wine, rum and nutmeg; continue whipping over heat until it becomes a thick light foam. Transfer to an ice bath and continue whipping until cooled. Refrigerate up to 4 hours.

GINGER Tuile:

  1. Sift dry ingredients together. Stir in egg whites and vanilla, then butter.
  2. SPRAY parchment paper-lined sheet pan with pan release spray, or use a silicone baking mat. Place a stencil on top. Using a small offset spatula, spread 1 Tbsp. batter into stencil. Carefully lift off and repeat with remaining batter. Bake in 375ºF standard oven 7 min. or until lightly browned. (The tuile will crisp while cooling.) Cool flat or use a wide spatula to immediately drape cookies over rolling pins. Cool completely and store in an airtight container.

In a time of growing health consciousness, it might not be enough anymore for food to be merely filling. According to Technomic’s 2016 Healthy Eating Consumer Trend Report , diners are looking for food with a function, such as those with high protein content, immunity-boosting properties, antioxidants, probiotics and more. The data suggests 63% of consumers see these foods as healthier than those without any specific nutritional function—and would be more likely to buy them.

But are those stated preferences translating on an operational level? There, the answer is less clear. Baby...

We make people call and directly talk to their boss or supervisor if they are reporting an absence for a shift. While it is more cumbersome, it is a conscious decision. We have adapted and implemented electronic methods to obtain efficiencies in just about every other functional area, except for electronic absence reporting systems. The direct supervisor can put more pressure on an employee to show up—especially those with some form of the “Super Bowl plague”—than any electronic system can.

But last fall, in a continuing effort to transition from prepackaged meals to an all-scratch menu, Mark Augustine, executive chef of culinary and nutrition services for Minneapolis Public Schools, switched to concocting four varieties in-house—ranch, Caesar, Italian and Asian vinaigrette. The move, designed to eliminate artificial ingredients and lower fat and sodium, presented the biggest challenge when it came to ranch dressing, the school-...
