If you've ever handled fresh basil, you know how delicate it is.
For years, every time I'd try to wash fresh basil, I'd end up throwing half of it away because it turns black so quickly.
And if you can get it washed without it turning black, forget trying to cut it - pretty much impossible...until now...
Vegan options for Thanksgiving sounds great if you're a restaurant or a caterer, but what we are finding today is more meat eaters are scrambling to find some vegan options for the 'outlier' vegan guest.
A perfect example is my brother. He recently got married and now that the wedding party is over, he is gearing up to cook and host his first Thanksgiving dinner as a Dad with an official family. Needless to say, he's very excited. Instead of going to someone's house, my brother get's to have everything his way - pretty awesome right?....Wrong!
What's the difference between a chef and a caterer? This is a common question because some chef's are also caterers, but not all caterers are chefs.
Most people would be surprised to know most chefs actually are not caterers as well, although many chefs naturally progress into catering to supplement their skill set, offering and business.
Caterers have additional governmental regulations and guidelines to abide by in addition to the standard food safety and health guidelines.
Catering requires additional knowledge and expertise, especially in transporting food without compromising it's prepared state for the occasion.
For example, keeping Indian food warm for a 20 minute commute while managing the condensation is a skill most Indian chefs may not be aware of because their expertise may come in preparing and creating the recipes, rather than transporting the food in a way that it arrives fresh, hot and full of taste.
