I like going to restaurants and having my favorite dish. However, lately I’ve been more adventurous and want to try something new to become a new favorite.
Recently, I decided to leave my favorite restaurant because I started to get bored with the menu. That got me thinking, it’s time I changed my own menu. My clients are ready for something new too!
Therefore, I reviewed restaurant and chef websites, saved photos and took notes. Then I remembered my Master Chef I studied under said, “Over time chef’s get used to using the same seasonings and food starts to taste the same.” So I threw out half of my seasonings, bought ones I never used or typically don’t use. Then I started playing with my pots and pans in my test kitchen, whipping out dish and after dish. A few made the cut and inspired new menus on my website, which also got a major face-lift.
This test kitchen time with new ingredients and methods inspired me. I think it will inspire you too. My family and friends sure enjoyed the test menu’s.
