1C heavy cream
¼# unsalted butter
2 oz. canned chipotle chopped fine in foods processor

Steps

  1. Place Sweet potatoes in lightly salted water and place on stove at med-high heat. Simmer until tender. Strain.
  2. Place hot/tender Potatoes back in pot they were cooked in and add cream butter and chipotle. Use a potato masher and mash potatoes until all ingredients are incorporated and mix is as smooth as desired. Adjust seasoning with salt and pepper.
  3. While Pollock is cooking, in a large bowl, toss celery root, cabbage, red onion, red pepper, mayo, lemon juice, and tarragon. Mix well and adjust seasoning with salt and pepper.

Restaurant design is all about catching a customer’s eye —and it’s sometimes particularly beneficial to be far-sighted. As Airbnb has proven with its San Francisco headquarters, where cafe spaces are inspired by cities like Cairo and Mumbai, elaborate design schemes that evoke far-flung geographic regions can be done to great effect. But operators are finding simpler ways to achieve that feel.

Just eight days before Dec. 1, when operators would have to comply with the U.S. Department of Labor’s new overtime rules, a federal judge in Texas slapped an injunction on the regulation. The move indefinitely halted the rules that would have doubled the overtime threshold to $47,476, affecting nearly 4.2 million workers, according to the DOL. For some operators, the move was too little, too late. Now, they have to answer to employees who had been briefed on promised wage increases.

With a budget and timeline in place, and the support of the university behind them, the foodservice team at the University of Chicago Medical Center was ready to get rolling with the renovation of one of its patient services kitchens.

But that didn’t mean immediately jumping in with steel and screws.

When the FoodService Director editors first started tossing around the idea of an “influencers” issue, our minds immediately turned to, well, foodservice directors. After all, so much of the learning in this industry is a peer-to-peer experience, and it’s your influence that inspires the content in every single issue of this magazine.

Then we imagined the massive infighting that would occur if we tried to whittle ourselves down to a list of just 20 influential operators and thought better of it. There’s already enough arguing for us to do about which pizza toppings are best (...
