...cherry tomatoes were placed in the central of salad. I personally do not favor salads that much just as the same as my group mate Connie. After we added pear champagne vinaigrette to the salad, the salad becomes so creamy and fresh. It tastes way better than I thought. The salad is paired with a 2009 chardonnay. The chardonnay was paired well with the salad since its bitterness rinse the mouth by every sip and that keep the freshness of the salad. The best part of the meal was the entrée. The entrée is consisting of chicken breast, truffle puree, bacon blue lake green beans, and chimichuri sauce. The look of the entrée has a very high class feeling, well cook chicken breast is mingle by the cedar, spice, caramelized brown sugar and the sea salt. There is mash potatoes which is named “truffle potatoes” and was spread on the side of the plate. The chicken breast has a strong smell of the cedar and taste so good! And apparently there is a good wine selection for this entrée; it is a 2007 Paraduxx Red Wine. The red wine has a smell of cherry flavor and it taste like a very dense of grapes. Moreover, the wine keeps my mouth clean to try every bite of the chicken breast. The well mixed truffle potatoes are able to melt by the time you chew the chicken breast. By spinning the wine glass, the aroma of the red wine releases and increases my passion to this meal. Finally, we have the Chocolate Soufflé as a dessert for dinner. It is also my first time......

Magic Box Report

...on texture, colour, taste, balance, nutrition and presentation. With this criteria in mind I set out to produce two menu items, one entree and one main, that utilised as many ingredients as possible from the list provided and that encompassed the above elements. Starting with the listed proteins as the central components to each dish, I then took into consideration the season and how best I could utilise my strengths. Inspired by the composition of a dish from La Chapelle, London I began with my entree and developed a concept using the lighter of the two proteins the John Dory and Scampi. To create my main dish, I explored the best cooking method suited for the cut of meat available, the beef cheeks. I then made the decision that beef cheeks are best braised as this enhances the flavour of the meat and ensures it is tender. With my cooking technique selected I then utilised the list of ingredients available to build and create flavours that would compliment this. This report will set out to provide further insight into the composition of each of these dishes from this point. Furthermore it will provide an analysis of the ingredients used in relation to the mentioned elements of texture, colour, taste, balance, nutrition and presentation. Summary The main points of this report will cover * A clear description of the two dishes, entree and main, in menu format. * A detailed overview of the composition of each dish as it would be described to staff within a......

French Wine and Their Food Pairings

...French cuisine or any other cuisine for that matter is the entrée. A great example of an entrée is Carré d’agneau a la Provençale. The Carré d’agneau a la Provençale is a dish of a delicious roasted rack of lamb that is coated in an herb crust top with a Dijon mustard brown sauce. The rack of lamb itself is a rich gamey mouthwatering flavor that makes the meal itself exquisite. The herb crust that coat the lamb is brings out the earthiness of the entrée alone. The herb crust contains the herbs of rosemary, thyme, and garlic ("Carré d’agneau a la Provençale - Lamb Provencal"). With this delicious entrée deserved a dry medium white wine from France. An excellent white wine for this entrée is a perfect dry white wine that goes amazing with a rack of lamb especially a roasted rack of lamb with rosemary and garlic. A 2009 Latour Pessac – Leognant is best choice for it. It is a dry medium short-cleaned white wine. The 2009 Latour Pessac – Leognant has flavors of a melony, exotic fruits with a hint of figs, oranges, and apricot maramalade. This wine was originally from Bordeaux, France. It was created by the Semillon grape which brings a rich, gelatinous, full-flavored, along with a subtly-scented and botrytis-prone white grapes ("2009 Latour Martillac Blanc, Pessac-Léognan"). With the flavors that created the mouthwatering smooth white wine and the flavors from the most delicious roasted rack of lamb makes the entire entrée a heavenly satisfying course.

Market Research

...additional information about whether a market exists for his service. There are also other decisions for which we will provide additional information on, for example, how to best promote the restaurant in his town when he first opens. Also, there are many choices to make about the design of the restaurant, the price the market is willing to pay for an upscale entrée, the best location, and so on. The research company has already told Michael, “If we can collect valid and reliable information on likelihood to patronize your restaurant, average amount spent in restaurants per month, and the average price to be paid per entrée, we can create a much more accurate break-even analysis and compare that with the number of patrons you can expect“. In fact, the research company had already made some estimates of demand using a forecasting model. They told Michael that if only 4% of heads of households in the 12 post code area claimed they were “very likely” to patronize the restaurant and if these same people spent an average of $200 per month in restaurants and were willing to pay an average of $18 for an à la carte entrée, then the model predicted a very successful restaurant operation. The research company had acquired demographic information on each post code in the metropolitan area and categorized them into four groups based on their commonalities. The summarized information on the post codes can be seen in appendix 1. The demographic information available suggests......

Declining Beef Sales

...Based on an analysis of the last six months’ sales, your boss notices that sales of beef products are declining in your chain’s restaurants. As beef entrée sales decline, so do profits. Fearing beef sales have declined due to several newspaper stories reporting E. coli contamination discovered at area grocery stores, he suggests a survey of all area restaurants to see if the situation is persuasive. a. What do you think of this research suggestion? b. How if at all, could you improve on your boss’s formulation of the research question? There are many possible reasons that beef sales may be declining. Of the many possibilities the e coli contamination could be one of them but I would be cautious of assuming the situation is due to e coli news coverage. First I would also clarify the objective of the research. I would have to assume that my boss isn’t concerned that the local population isn’t eating enough beef. I would have to assume that the beef sales translate into something else that concerns my boss, such as a lower margin per entrée or lower revenues being generated by the store. Clarifying what the actual problem is would be my first step. Before surveying area restaurants I would begin with analyzing the data collected at my establishment. Are the customers in our store choosing options other than beef or do we just have fewer customers? An issue could be that customers are looking for healthier options. There could also be a local vegetarian or......

How much are potential patrons willing to pay for the entrees? Is the $18 amount from the forecasting model correct? [pic] Graph 1: The frequency of the price of evening meal entrée item alone Based on the process of data screening, I personally believe that 60 data are logically inconsistent. 60 data relating to the price of evening meal entrée customers would like to pay amount to 999 dollars, which has a low possibility in reality. In this case, those data should not be included during analysis. In other words, I accept the null hypothesis and conclude that the average price of evening mean entrée is not significantly different from 18 dollars.

Shit Paper

... It can be any sixteen items on the menu and even after a few months or after a new menu comes out, they can remake a new BINGO card. The key rules that would be involved with this BINGO Menu would be: 1. Each person who comes in will be asked by the server if they would like to see and try out one of our new BINGO Menu cards before they choose their drinks 2. The card will be handed out and the rules will be on the back of the card as well 3. When a person orders something that is on the card (Only one appetizer, entrée, and dessert per visit) the server will make a special mark/punch on the card. (This could also be used in co-op with the stripes card to keep track). 4. Each time someone gets a four in a row a.k.a. BINGO, they will receive a free appetizer or entrée (Scott’s choice) on T.G.I Fridays. 5. If someone fills the whole card by trying each item on the menu then they will receive a free dinner for two or a free three course meal (appetizer, entrée, and dessert). T.G.I. Fridays also used seasonal sale fluctuation to their advantage. Some of the main factors were temperature changes, weather changes and individual’s mood with regard to local travel and food preferences. For example in terms of temperature and weather changes, the marketing plan would be to employ something new into their menu, saying that if it’s in winter you would prefer something that’s hot and maybe even spicy to warm the tummy or during summer when you would have promotional prices or......
