From Chef Joseph Boyer, who says guests frequently request a platter of all his dipping sauces, and sit at the bar for hours mixing and matching dumplings and condiments.

Ingredients

1⁄4 cup finely diced onions
1 tbsp. chopped garlic
2 tsp. curry powder
2 tsp. sugar
1 tsp. salt
1 tbsp. vegetable oil, plus more for sautéeing
1 lb. ground chicken
1⁄4 cup chopped scallions
1 peeled and diced small Granny Smith apple
1 egg, beaten
2 pkgs. round wheat flour dumpling wrappers (50 wrappers)

Steps

1. Sauté the onions, garlic, curry powder, sugar, and salt in oil over medium heat until the onions are tender. Remove from heat and refrigerate for 30 min.

2. In bowl, combine onion mixture with raw ground chicken, apples, and scallions for filling. Place 1 tbsp. of filling in the middle of each dumpling wrapper. Brush the edge of half the wrapper with beaten egg. Fold the unbrushed half over the other half and crimp edges together with a fork.

3. In a large, nonstick skillet, heat 1 tsp. oil. Add enough potstickers to cover the bottom of the pan without touching one another; saute until golden brown on one side. Remove from heat and add 1⁄4 in. water to skillet; return to heat without turning the potstickers over (watch out for splattering grease). Cover skillet and let dumplings steam for 5 min., until the filling is cooked through.

eureka

Since California’s state motto is “Eureka!” it seems fitting that a recent conversation with the director of hospitality at San Diego’s Palomar Health led to the biggest aha moment I’ve had in a long time.

I called Jim Metzger in late April with the purpose of discussing Palomar’s recent commitment to the goal of making 60% of its total menu plant-based by this summer. It seemed a lofty number, and I was curious how the public health system planned to get there.

But my personal eureka didn’t come while we were talking about how Palomar had cleaned up the impulse-buy zones...

Labeling foods with indulgent buzzwords such as “sweet sizzlin’” and “crispy” can lead consumers to make healthier food choices , according to a recent study out of Stanford University .

In the fall 2016 study, researchers labeled vegetables in one of the school’s dining halls using terms from four categories: basic, healthy restrictive, healthy positive or indulgent.

The green beans, for example, were listed as “green beans” for basic, “light ‘n’ low-carb green beans and shallots” for healthy restrictive, “healthy energy boosting green beans and shallots” for healthy...

Our carbonated soft drink sales at Earls.67 reflect a national trend; we’re continually down on carbonated soft drink sales by 8% to 9% on an annual basis,” says Cameron Bogue, beverage director at the contemporary-casual chain Earls Kitchen + Bar.

The issue with spa water

Many operators are intrigued with the offering, but they are learning that infused water can’t be offered at a cost to guests unless there is added value beyond cut-up fruit. Bogue says, “I was adamant that I didn’t want to charge for spa water.”
