The Cycle of Success


Whether serving residents or guests in our cafes, it is vital to continually evaluate your menus using the cycle of success: Resident/Guest Focused: Are you anticipating your resident/guest wants or needs? What are your demographics? What is important to them? A wise man once said, “If you want to know what your resident thinks, just ask them.� Customize Menu & Services: Only after you have sought to truly understand your customer and what’s important to them can you start to customize your menu and services. Keep in mind demographics, regional preferences, acuity level, budget, staffing, equipment, etc. Remember, engage your entire team in the process. Many of the best ideas come from those who are closest to your residents & guests.

Compile & Analyze Data: Validating your work is crucial/ extremely valuable after your menu is customized. Gain beneficial feedback by evaluating data from resident satisfaction scores, verbatims and retail surveys. Continually Change: Upon understanding our residents/guests, customizing your menu, and compiling and analyzing the data, you need to take action. Armed with the knowledge and tools to anticipate needs, you are starting the process of satisfying residents and guests for years to come. To serve the best culinary experience possible at your business, use the following seasonality guide and menu tools to create customized menu experiences all year long:

MENUS

Seasonality


Seasonality makes all the difference in restaurant menus. There is nothing like that first taste of roasted butternut squash on a fall menu or the burst of flavor that comes from summer’s first bite of watermelon. Regionality will dictate what seasonality means in your business, but the below chart provides helpful guidelines to assist in your planning.

Menu Writing Guidelines


1. Identify Cuts of Meat E.g. French Cut Chicken Breast, Tenderloin of Veal, Center Cut Pork Chop. 2. M  ethod of Preparation Specify method of preparation, e.g. Pan Seared Potato Crusted Salmon, Braised Lamb Shanks, Poached Filet of Sole, Sautéed Scallopine of Veal, Pan Smoked Loin of Tuna, etc. 3. Origin and Region of Foods Note origin items whenever possible, e.g. Thai lacquered Tenderloin of Pork, Atlantic Cod Cakes, Vermont Cob Smoked Chicken, Caribbean Blue Prawns, Native Sweet Corn, Jersey Tomatoes, Calamata Olives, Parma Prosciutto, etc. 4. Seasonality Menu offerings should reflect seasonal food items, e.g. asparagus and grilled foods in the spring and summer, blueberries in the summer, cranberries in the fall, and stews in the winter. 5. Wording of Menus Use commonly understood phrasing when listing items on your menus, e.g. ‘Braised Veal Shank with Lemon and Fresh Sage’ instead of ‘Osso Bucco,’ ‘Pan Seared Sirloin of Beef with Three Peppercorn and Cognac Sauce’ instead of ‘Steak Au Poivre,’ etc.

Menus | 17


6. Sauces Offer relishes, chutneys, and reductions in place of traditional cream and butter-based sauces. e.g. Grilled Atlantic Swordfish with Tri-Colored Pepper Relish, Pan Seared Salmon with Tomato Basic Coulis (Sauce), and French Cut Chicken Breast with Fig and Red Onion Jam. 7. Offer Variety Entrees: Alternate between poultry, seafood, red meat, vegetarian, pastas, etc. Starches: Alternate between rice, legumes, grains, pastas, potatoes. Vegetables: When offering two vegetables per day, offer one green and one nongreen. One of the vegetables should be steamed and unbuttered. 8. Authenticity All menu offerings should be made true to their name, e.g. when serving risotto, Arborio rice should be used; Maryland crab cakes should be made with Maryland crab, etc.

Daily Production Sheets


Why this is important: Daily production worksheets and daily production summaries are important to manage the product we produce. Production worksheets and summaries allow us to: •Control cost by keeping the amount of product we use to exactly what we need. • Control quality and avoid leftovers while ensuring that we have enough for our needs. • Save labor through cross-functional preparation and cutting wasted time. • Help with inventory control.

What to do: 1. Two days ahead of production: a. Create daily production worksheets or summaries for each production area (resident/guest, retail, catering etc.). Generate summaries using Webtrition production-forecasting tool. Some areas are: breakfast, entrées, vegetables, breads, salads and desserts. b. Make sure recipe name and number are on daily production worksheet or summary.

c. Make copies of daily production worksheets or summaries. Give one to the storeroom and one to each production area. d. List serving utensils as well as pan and garnish information on Taste/Temperature Record. 2. Before weekly ordering cycle: a. Prepare daily list of food items that need to thaw, cook ahead, or are partly prepared to meet recipe needs. 3. One day before service: a. Prepare foods for cold service to allow enough chilling time. This could include salad bar items prepared and placed in proper serving container where it is difficult to maintain temperatures during service periods. b. If products cannot or should not be prepared a day in advance, pre-chill servicing containers prior to placing product in them. 4. On the day of actual production: a. Check progress frequently in production areas. b. Determine use(s) for leftovers. Note them on daily production worksheet(s) or summaries and review with production staff. c. Look for additional changes (and reasons) made on daily production worksheets or summaries. d. Check storeroom’s copy of daily production worksheets or summaries to identify changes and reasons for those changes..

Use this information in preparation of sheets for future repeated days in menu cycle. b. Only designated management can make decisions concerning discarding and utilization of unused portions. c. Accounts using computerized food production software should enter actual quantities (prepared, unused) into database on daily basis. 6. Retain production worksheets or summaries for minimum of six (6) weeks.

Daily Production Meetings


Why this is important: Daily production meetings prevent miscommunication, errors, wasted effort, and corrective work. You will spend less time fixing issues and have less confusion in your kitchen if you have production meetings.

What to do: Meet daily with production staff to cover:

• Production sheets, recipes, food quality, presentation, food handling and HACCP issues

• Leftover usage

• Substitutions (menu or ingredient)

• Menu items that contain common allergens: peanuts, tree nuts, soy, dairy, wheat, fish, shellfish, or eggs

• Advance preparation

• Special functions

• Discuss potential problems and make a plan for managing them

• Discuss past problems (previous day) and how to prevent them

Use the production meeting template as a place to capture your notes, creating a blueprint for a successful meeting to connect, communicate and educate your team each and every day!

Do you know what’s on the menu for today? Do you know what those items taste like? The best way to answer these questions is through food tasting. Use recommended meeting guides for location. Have team gather around serving area 15 minutes prior to meal time. It’s a good idea to bring other team members in as well. This is a great time to share stories, train new associates and taste food. Encourage team to taste food as well. The more they know about it, the more they can speak positively about it. To taste, place food in soup bowl or a vegetable dish. Use a new teaspoon or fork for each food item tasted. When tasting the food, look for the following: • Was food prepared using correct recipe? • Is the food presentable? • Is food overcooked or undercooked? • Is food at proper serving temperature? Any food not up to our quality standard should be removed and corrected. Make sure proper serving utensils are available at each serving station and associates know how to serve item. Make sure staff knows of foods that might contain the eight major allergens:

If customers have questions about allergens, associates should refer the questions to a manager, supervisor or chef. *Source: (https://www.foodprotection.org/)

Why this is important: Mealtimes are our “Showtime�. To make sure that staff is ready to interact with our customers and residents, they need to know exactly what to expect during meal service. They should also be prepared to answer questions from customers. This is a great time to answer their questions and rally the team to put their best foot forward.

Menu Substitutions


Why this is important: While we should always have the goal of serving exactly what is on our menu, sometimes menu substitutions are necessary. When they are, it is our job to make sure that the substitution is coordinated with the rest of the menu and meets both our cost and quality commitments.

Confirm that the substitution is really necessary. Pick substitute food that: • Has a similar nutritional value. • Is not on menu elsewhere within 24 hours before or after. • Is an item approved for service. Make sure your dietitian approves of substitutions when appropriate. Discuss substitution in production meetings to make sure whatever the cause, it is an exception not a regular thing. If it is an ongoing problem, fix it so substitutions don’t keep happening. Make sure you have recorded every substitution on the production sheets. • Make sure that all staff knows of the substitution so that they can make the changes they need to make and in case a resident has an allergy to the food. Check Taste/Temperature Record for recording of substitutions. Strictly confidential; do not remove from premises or share outside of Morrison Living associates. 06/19

Unused Portions


Why this is important: While you don’t want to run out of food, good production planning will help you to keep them to a minimum. Leftovers are never a good idea because you still have the cost of the food that was used but the quality is never as good as that of freshly prepared food. Leftovers also require careful handling to avoid contamination and spoilage.

Make sure you have fewest possible leftovers and waste by: • Recording them on daily production sheet for future reference. • Checking production sheet and refrigerators after each meal. • When preparing a new item on retail menu, plan for less until you know how well product is liked by your customers. • Paying close attention to your resident or resident meal request numbers, especially for a new item • Discussing leftover usage at daily production meeting. • Keeping a record of leftovers and their usage.

Food Production Standards | 59


Allow flexibility in retail menu to allow for usage of leftovers from resident or resident menu. • Make sure leftovers are used within two days. The first day of production is day one. The best plan is to use them in the next meal. Follow Food Handling Guidelines for how to chill, store and handle. • Use leftovers once. Any leftovers you did not use in 2 days become food waste to be discarded. If you are using a Trim Trax Waste Log write them in there. • Never re-use leftover pureed foods. Treat them like waste after each meal.

Meal Service Support


Why this is important: Residents are at the center of our business and serving them the best food possible is part of our brand promise. The only way to do this is for the culinary team to pay as much attention to the quality of product that you serve to residents as you do for any other service.

Guidelines: • The culinary team owns quality of resident food as well as adheres to diet foods as needed. • Make sure your team is carefully planning resident food service and discussing it as thoroughly as they do for retail service. • Make sure to follow recipes, using correct product specs and following our culinary philosophy. • Use Taste and Temperature Report available in Webtrition. • Make sure you have recorded the substitution on production sheets. • Check the P&P manual Taste/Temperature Record for recording of substitutions.
