[ MUSIC ] “FRESH MEALS” IS BROUGHT TO YOU BY MICHIGAN TEAM NUTRITION. [ MUSIC ]>>HI, I’M JIMMY SCHMIDT. AND WE’RE HERE TODAY WITH “FRESH MEALS,” FOOD TIPS AND TRICKS FOR THE FOOD SERVICE PROFESSIONAL. TODAY, WE’RE TALKING ABOUT FOOD PRESENTATION. AND FIRST OF ALL, WE ARE WHAT WE EAT, BUT MORE IMPORTANTLY, WE EAT WHAT WE EAT WITH OUR EYES FIRST. OBVIOUSLY, THE– WE’VE GONE THROUGH, YOU KNOW, ALL OF THE AROMATHERAPY OF WHEN YOU COME INTO THE CAFETERIA OR THE DINING AREA, THAT YOU GET A GREAT WHIFF PRESENTATION, YOU KNOW, OLFACTORILY, A SMELL COMING THROUGH THAT REALLY DRAWS YOU INTO THAT AREA. ONCE YOU GET IN, YOU GOT TO REALLY EAT WITH YOUR EYES. YOU LOOK AROUND AND SEE WHAT’S COLORFUL AND WHAT MIGHT SPARK YOUR INTEREST. SO FOOD PRESENTATION IS WHERE IT’S AT. YOU GOT TO GET PAST THE-THE ENJOYMENT OF LOOKING AT FOOD IN ORDER TO BUY INTO WHAT THE DISH IS. WHAT WE’VE DONE HERE TODAY, IS WE’VE TAKEN THE SAME INGREDIENTS THAT WE’VE COOKED AND MIRRORED THEM IN PRESENTATIONS, NATURAL PRESENTATIONS ABOVE THE DISH THAT THE DISH WAS MADE OUT OF. SO WE’RE TAKING, FOR INSTANCE, THE FRESH OKEMOS CORN, WHICH CAME FROM JUST RIGHT DOWN THE STREET HERE. THIS IS IN ITS NATURAL BEAUTY– IT DOESN’T GET ANY BETTER. WE TURNED IT INTO A CORN CHOWDER, WHICH IS DEMONSTRATED DOWN HERE IN THIS SERVING BOWL BELOW. WE TOOK SLIGHT CHALKBOARDS AND PUT IN THAT INFORMATION RIGHT BY THE SOUP ITSELF TO KNOW WHERE THE INGREDIENT CAME FROM, WHAT VARIETY IT IS. ANY OTHER TYPE OF INFORMATION THAT YOU CAN THROW OUT THERE TO YOUR GUESTS. THROUGH THIS, THEY’RE EDUCATED ON WHERE THE CORN CAME FROM– SOMETHING ABOUT THE CORN AND WHY IT’S RELATED TO THIS DISH. THE CORN IS BEAUTIFUL IN IT’S NATURAL SHAPE. IF THE DISH IS BEAUTIFUL, WE’VE SUCCEEDED. MOVING ON, WE’VE GOT A SELECTION OF SQUASHES HERE. FROM THE BUTTERNUT THAT’S USED IN THE DISH, WE’VE CUT THE SPAGHETTI SQUASH OPEN AND SOME OF THE OTHER SQUASHES SO YOU CAN SEE INSIDE. THE GUESTS GOING THROUGH CAN ACTUALLY GET AN IDEA OF WHAT THEY’RE LOOKING AT EVEN IF THEY DON’T NECESSARILY BUY OUR PASTA TODAY. WITH ITS NATURAL SQUASH FLAVORS AND SUCH, THEY’RE GETTING THE AROMA FROM THE PASTA, THEY’RE GETTING THE SIGHT OF IT, AND THEY’RE GETTING THAT EDUCATION. MOVING ONWARDS, WE’VE GOT A GREAT SELECTION OF BREAD, THE STAFF OF LIFE IN ITS BEAUTIFUL FORMS. THIS SENDS A VERY CLEAR MESSAGE OF WHAT IT’S ABOUT. WE’VE ENCAPSULATED THAT PROCESS INTO PIZZA TODAY. THE PIZZA WAS DONE WITH ROASTED VEGETABLES, ROAST TOMATOES, ROAST PEPPERS, MOZZARELLA CHEESE. IT’S GOT A SPLASH OF OUR BASIL OIL ON TOP OF IT. REALLY FRESH, WONDERFUL LOOKING, BUT IT’S ALL COMING FROM THE BREAD UP ABOVE. MOVING ONWARDS, WE’VE TAKEN THE BEST OUT OF THE GARDEN. WE’VE GOT WONDERFUL FENNEL, ROASTED PEPPERS, CAULIFLOWER, TOMATOES AND WE’VE TURNED THIS INTO A WONDERFUL PASTA BY A ROASTING TECHNIQUE UTILIZING OUR OVENS. BUT IT’S ENCOMPASSED IN THE PASTA THAT IS BELOW. SO THAT TIES THE RAW INGREDIENT– WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE IN NATURE– ALL THE BENEFITS DOWN INTO THE DISH ITSELF. NOW, OUR ACTUAL SERVING VESSELS SHOULD BE NATURAL. THE BOWLS LOOK NATURAL LIKE THEY’D FIND ON THE HOME TABLE. FAMILY STYLE PROMOTES SHARING, PROMOTES ITS BEING FRESH AND REAL. IT’S NOT LIKE A GIANT PAN THAT’S BEEN SITTING THERE FOR HOURS. IT’S FRESH, REAL TO THE POINT. GET YOUR POTTERY CLASS INVOLVED, GET THEM TO MAKE THE UTENSILS AND THE VESSELS FOR IT SO IT HAS A REAL PERSONAL STAMP OF YOUR SCHOOL ITSELF. EVEN IF YOU DO TILE WORK. TO DO A LAID TILE THAT YOU CAN ACTUALLY SERVE ON SO THAT THEY CAN SEE THE FOOD IN ITS NATURAL ENVIRONMENT IS PARAMOUNT. WHAT WE’RE REALLY PRESENTING HERE AND GETTING PEOPLE TO ENJOY IS THE PURE NATURAL RAW INGREDIENT IN ITS FORM, LEARNING SOMETHING ABOUT IT. AND THEN THROUGH THE WONDERFUL TECHNIQUE OF OUR CRAFT, OF BEING FOOD PROFESSIONALS, WE CAPTURE ALL OF THAT NUTRITIONAL FLAVOR. WE CAPTURE ALL OF THAT NUTRITIONAL VALUE AND TASTE AND DEVELOP IT INTO SOMETHING SPECIAL. WE PUT IT INTO A PASTA, INTO A PIZZA, INTO A SOUP, INTO A SALAD OR CAPTURE IT WITH OTHER PROTEINS IN CHICKEN AND BEEF AND SUCH FOR AN ENTREE. BUT WHERE IT ALL COMES BACK TO IS THE BEGINNING, WHICH IS JUST NATURE ITSELF. SO, SHARE WITH YOUR GUESTS WHAT GREAT INGREDIENTS YOU’VE GOT GOING AND THE REST WILL SELL THEMSELVES. THEY MAY HAVE NEVER TRIED THESE INGREDIENTS BEFORE. BUT EVEN IF THEY TRY THEM, THEY WILL KNOW WHAT BROCCOLI TASTES LIKE OR WHAT FENNEL TASTES LIKE OR WHAT GREAT SWEET CORN TASTES LIKE. THEY’LL KNOW WHERE IT COMES FROM AND HOW IT FITS INTO THE WORLD. SO YOU HAVE ALL THESE WONDERFUL FRESH, NATURAL INGREDIENTS BEING CAPTURED BY YOUR FOOD PROFESSIONAL SKILLS INTO THESE WONDERFUL DISHES THAT NOURISH BOTH THE PALATE AND THE BODY. THIS IS WHAT REALLY OUR WHOLE FOOD SERVICE PRESENTATION IS ABOUT. NOW, LET’S MOVE OVER AND SHOW YOU HOW WE CAN DO IT WITH DESSERTS AS WELL.
