Sliced pork piled high on foccacia bread makes a simple and hearty sandwich. The pork is full of flavor from an aromatic marinade and tender from slow cooking.

Ingredients

1 cup olive oil
1⁄2 cup apple wine
4 tbsp. black peppercorns, crushed
4 shallots, minced
8 tbsp. fresh rosemary, chopped
2 garlic cloves, crushed
2 bay leaves, chopped
6 lb. pork loin
Focaccia bread, as needed

Steps

1. In a large bowl, whisk together oil, wine, peppercorns, shallots, rosemary, garlic and bay leaves. Pour over pork loin and marinate overnight.

2. Remove pork from marinade and roast uncovered in a 400° F. oven for 15 min. Reduce heat to 325° F. and bake another 90 min. or until done.

3. Remove pork from heat and allow to cool. Slice thinly and stack on focaccia bread with condiments. Serve.

We have spent considerable money making cafeterias cool again. New paint jobs, crazy color patterns, custom graphics and changes in lighting schemes have made some of our cafes popular gathering places. We’ve also experimented with videos, cable TV programs and music. We involved a number of student groups and student input in improving the atmosphere, especially in our high school and middle school cafeterias.

With all the hype around probiotics, we decided to create a daily dish that incorporates probiotics in addition to prebiotics. You rarely hear about prebiotics, and this was a great way to highlight how the two work synergistically to maintain a healthy gut. Our chefs have developed menu items such as roasted salmon with yogurt and mint vinaigrette; kale and quinoa salad with warm maple dressing; and leek soup with pickled cucumbers, to name a few.

We can’t possibly think up every answer operators might have to a particular question, and it gives respondents a chance to show some personality as well. (A special nod to one cheeky operator’s not-quite-safe-for-work response to how they’re tackling shortened lunch periods—you made my day.)

So this year, for the first time since I’ve been at FoodService Director, I chose to include a very open-...

Asian noodle soups are a popular lunch option at YouTube’s San Bruno, Calif., campus, says Trent Page, the GM at Bon Appetit Management who runs the company’s three corporate dining venues. But Page noticed an increasing preference for customizable dishes and vegan preparations among the 1,000 customers he feeds daily. Inspired by a recent visit to Japan, he introduced tsukemen to the menu—a dish that features most of the traditional ramen ingredients (noodles, eggs and vegetable garnishes) served separately so diners can mix and match. “Separating the components makes it more customizable...
