Living Without's Favorite Books: Service with a Smile
Joel Schaefer knows how to feed people with food allergies and sensitivities. He’s the chef who developed the widely successful special-diet program at Walt Disney World Resort, allowing thousands of families to enjoy safe vacations. Now he shares that knowledge with food service professionals in Serving People with Food Allergies, Kitchen Management and Menu Creation (CRC Press). This book is a step-by-step guide to setting up an allergy-friendly restaurant kitchen, training staff (front of the house and kitchen) and deftly communicating with guests. Written for restaurant management, it includes great recipes for the professional kitchen but it’s also full of useful facts and stats for those navigating unknown eateries. Here’s the insider’s perspective on what to look for, ask for and watch out for when dining out.
