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.)

bowling ball pins

We patterned our chef culinary competition after the one pioneered by the University of Massachusetts. This year, 11 teams of college chefs registered. Each team gets the same market basket and has two hours to prepare three dishes. The starting times have to be staggered and nobody wants the 6 a.m. slot, so instead of randomly assigning times, this year we took the teams bowling and used their scores to determine starting times. The two teams with the highest combined bowling score got to pick their time slot first. Going bowling built camaraderie and team spirit before the teams even got...

Managing Your Business
performance review anxiety

For all the most obvious reasons, managers and staff don’t always agree. But both sides can get behind retiring annual performance reviews, according to a January survey from software company Adobe, which quit the practice in 2012. There, 64% of surveyed workers and 62% of supervisors consider yearly evaluations outdated.

“My philosophy is if I have to wait a year to tell you where you stand, it’s a little too late,” says Al Ferrone, senior director of dining services at the University of California at Los Angeles. Ferrone and other operators are reforming the meetings to add real...

Our employees have paid time off, but if they don’t call in at least one hour before their scheduled shift, their PTO will be docked for the day. We also assign points for unapproved absences. Everyone starts with a freebie, and when they get to 4, then we start the disciplinary action process. When a staff member gets to 10 points, that is grounds for termination.

app mobile

The capacity of our dining room is 135 guests, and most evenings we serve closer to 160. At times, this led to some residents waiting for a table, especially at peak hours. Our new table management software allows diners to request specific meal times via a mobile app and allows us to space out our service, greatly reducing the wait times and allowing dining staff to prepare each table in advance of their arrival.
