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.

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. And how does the...

Menu Development

“As a chef, I pretty much have grown up through the business thinking that fresh was always better—produce, fish and meats, especially,” says Ryan Conklin, executive chef for UNC Rex Healthcare’s culinary and nutrition services. “But the more ‘re-educated’ I get, the more I’m learning that some frozen options may be more appropriate for me to be using on my menus.”

Right now, the perception of frozen foods doesn’t match the reality, especially for high-volume foodservice operators, says Conklin. Often, chefs and operators picture not-great product that’s been sitting in a block of...

As plans to increase the minimum wage surge ahead in states such as New York and California, operators eventually will feel the reverberations shake up labor costs for more than just hourly workers. As associate wages gain on manager salaries, operators will have to answer a call for reciprocal increases. FSD spoke with operators who advised going gently into the brave new world of heightened labor costs, investing in talent and making cuts elsewhere; however, they did offer three perfectly proactive tactics to make the process as seamless as possible.
