Busy Busy Month!!

December 12, 2011

Hello Everyone!  Back again from our travels and with the holiday season added to the mix, this past month has been quite full!!

In November we traveled back down to Jumby Bay ,a 300-acre private Caribbean island in Antigua, for some training to their Hospitality staff. 11 Food and Beverage Managers each received 16 hours of ServSafe Training for a total of 176 hours and 81 Food and Beverage Team Members each received 3 hours of Food Handlers Training for a total of 243 hours.  Chef Matthew and I were treated like royalty.  I want to send out a special thanks to Leisa McDonald, Executive Chef Yann Giacomoni,  Executive Sous Chef Juan Bochenski and the entire Jumby Bay Staff.

Food Deregulation Bill

August 26, 2011
tags: , , ,

Recently here in Florida a food deregulation bill was passed.  It is now okay for folks to make certain foods such as cakes, pies, honey etc in their homes without having a commercial kitchen and to sell them from their homes or roadside stands.

As business folks ourselves, we sure do like to see opportunities made available for people to get involved in free enterprise but we do have concern about the standards, if any, these “home kitchens” are going to have set.

What’s your opinion of the bill?  Are you all for it? For it as long as there are regular inspections to insure safe food handling and sanitation practices? Or somewhere in the middle?

We’d love to hear your thoughts!
