For Cinco de Mayo this year, the CulinArt team at Culinart at Cadwalader, Wickersham and Taft LLP, a New York law firm, wanted to put a Mexican spin on a classic ceviche, says Ryan Deutsch, executive chef for CulinArt at Culinart. “I used tomatillos, cilantro, lime juice, lemon juice and some Corona beer to give it a little different flavor,” Deutsch says. “I also put some ketchup in there to give it a nice red color.” The dish was served in 2-ounce martini shooters, which Carlos Rivera, director of dining services with CulinArt, says were inspired by attending a workshop at the 2010 MenuDirections conference in Miami. “I’m still in touch with the chef at The Doral [who gave a presentation on catering at the conference],” Rivera says. “I was so excited by the shooters he showed us that day. These shooters have worked so well, especially when serving this amount of shrimp. People usually aren’t going to take more than one shooter.”

Ingredients

2 lb. 51/60 shrimp, tails removed
3 limes, juiced
2 lemons, juiced
3 fresh tomatillos
1 medium red onion, small dice
2 oz. chopped cilantro
4 tbsp. ketchup
12 oz. Corona beer
1 medium cucumber, small dice
1 jalapeño pepper, seeded, finely diced
1 garlic clove, minced
Salt and pepper to taste

Steps

1. Place shrimp in bowl and marinate with lime and lemon juice. Cover and let sit under refrigeration for 1 hour, or until shrimp is opaque and slightly firm.

2. Add remaining ingredients to shrimp and let marinate for 1 hour under refrigeration.

fridge system

We installed a remote refrigeration system as part of our cafeteria renovation. The main part of the system is located on the roof and controls all our refrigerated equipment, including the walk-in freezer and coolers, beverage refrigerator, etc. The system allows us to identify problems faster, and the elimination of individual condenser units cuts down on A/C bills as well as noise.

Industry News & Opinion

Students at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor will be served student-grown produce from the campus farm at dining halls this fall, M Live reports.

The dining team received its first batch of produce from UM’s on-campus farm in June, after students received the proper USDA certification to grow, harvest and deliver food to campus dining halls. In order to figure out what produce is needed, students communicate with the dining department weekly, and Michigan Dining purchases items accordingly.

From Mrs. Dash Foodservice.

When it comes to offering exciting global flavors and ingredients, put it in the customer’s hands—with handhelds, that is. Burgers, sandwiches, wraps and shareables such as wings and tacos are fun, familiar and a value-packed way to leverage consumer fascination with ethnic menu items, including Asian, Latin, Mediterranean, and regional American specialties.

It’s also easy to add a global spin when you start with a popular menu staple like a sandwich. Not only is the sandwich a true citizen of the world—from a Portuguese bifana to a New Orleans...
