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.

Industry News & Opinion

With overtime pay likely to become a reality for some salaried foodservice employees after Dec. 1, operators are rethinking what they expect managers to do off-site as part of their responsibilities. Answering email or scheduling shifts at home didn’t matter when the employees were exempted from overtime if they earned more than $23,660 per year. But with that threshold more than doubling on Dec. 1 to $47,476, a half hour spent here and there on administrative tasks could push a salaried manager over the 40-hours-per-week threshold and entitle him or her to overtime.

Restaurateurs in Amherst, Mass., aren’t happy with UMass Dining .

Registered dietitian Dianne Sutherland told local NBC affiliate WWLP News in May that the high quality of food served on campus means students aren’t visiting neighborhood eateries as frequently as those businesses might like.

“Even our vendors who we work with, they get complaints from the restaurants that students are staying on campus,” she said. “They are already paying for the food; why should they [go] off campus to eat?” More than 19,000 Amherst students are on a meal plan—6,000 of whom live off campus...
