Clients don't know what goes on behind the door of the kitchen, what matters most to them is the presentation of the dining room and meal. In this program, we will evaluate and make any upgrades you feel necessary to achieve the look and feel you desire. Once this is determined, we will train your staff on the presentation and delivery of each meal.
Cooking with....A Budget
It is a well known fact that of any department, the dietary department's budget is very important to a facility's bottom line. This program will allow us to properly train and set up systems for your staff to insure effective ordering practices and help eliminate unnecessary waste of staff time and materials.
The preparation and presentation of Puree meals is a necessary part of providing quality care to your residents. Unfortunately, this part of every dietary department is usually its shortfall. In this program we teach your staff the proper techniques to not only prepare puree meals but to also use a mold technique to make each meal more visually appealing and therefore allowing your residents to enjoy their meal with dignity.
One of the largest complaints that facilities encounter is that the food does not taste well. This program will transform your menus from relying on pre-cooked meals that cost more and are less appetizing, to meals that have your residents complementing your kitchen and staff.
At the core of any successful department is a staff. We believe proper training and positive reinforcement is how to develop a strong, reliable staff. In this program we will use numerous training materials, and techniques to help insure quality and efficiency in your kitchen.
