  • Gear up for Halloween

    Here at Mission Restaurant Supply we are always on the hunt for great, new recipes that are easy to make and delicious. When a holiday like Halloween comes around, it's especially fun to try new things. The weather is slowly cooling down and we have our feelers out to try scrumptious, satisfying foods that are best suited for cold weather. Here are some on our must-try list: Perfect Pumpkin Bread Pumpkins are abounding this time of year and there are delicious ways to incorporate this plump gourd into more than just decoration. This Pumpkin Bread recipe is too easy for words. It makes a great breakfast bread when served slightly warm and it's great for a mid-day snack. The nutmeg and rich pumpkin make for the perfect mix of fall flavors. We made a few loaves for the office break room last Fall and it was a big hit!   Spicy Pumpkin Soup This Pumpkin Soup is something we are very excited about trying. It looks creamy, hot, satisfying, and we think it would be the perfect meal to warm up with on a blustery, Fall day. Recipe and photo courtesy of Simply Recipes. Ingredients

    What will you be preparing this Halloween?

  • Oktoberfest

    Oktoberfest is under way! For those that aren't familiar we suggest reading our quick guide! In a nutshell, Oktoberfest is a 17 day annual Bavarian Beer Festival, dating back to 1810. With very few exceptions (due to war, illness, etc.), Oktoberfest takes place once a year from late September to usually the first weekend in October. Munich is the birthplace of this gargantuan, historic celebration, but cities all over the world have emulated the festival and carried on some of the traditions for themselves. The main tradition here is Bavarian food and beer, and of course, all the history behind Bavaria's culture. Here is some fun trivia and a few products from MissionRS.com for all the  lovers out there! How did Oktoberfest start? Oktoberfest first started on October 12th, 1810 as a way to celebrate the marriage of Crown Prince Ludwig and Princess Therese of Saxony-Hildburghausen. As a way of celebrating their marriage, the Bavarian people stood in front of the city gates to take in the royal event. Horse races ended the celebration and agricultural fairs ensued in the years to come. Why is it internationally celebrated? Oktoberfest today is the largest beer festival in the world! What started in its early years as small beer stands for visitors to have a quick drink while taking in the agricultural shows, horse races, and more, has become an international celebration of Bavarian cuisine, beer, history, and customs. What's the traditional dress? Men and young boys generally wear lederhosen (britches made of leather) and the ladies wear dirndls (the official dress of Southern Germany). This way of dress has not gone out of style in Bavaria! Why is Oktoberfest mostly in September- not October? This question is asked by most, but the answer is that the weather in Munich is more favorable for festival conditions in September rather than October. What do you eat at Oktoberfest? German food is very distinctive, and during Oktoberfest it is all about the classics. For example, Bratwurst with sauerkraut, weis wurst (a white sausage traditionally served with a sweet mustard), knodels (or dumplings) and soft pretzels- festival food! And, most importantly, lots and lots of good, German beer! What makes drinking beer on Oktoberfest different from any other day? The brew made for Oktoberfest is stronger than normal German beer. The Oktoberfest beer has approximately a 5.8%-6.3% alcohol content and higher sugar than traditional German beer, which has low sugar and approximately 5.2% alcohol. What do you drink from at Oktoberfest? A German Mass, otherwise known as an Oktoberfest beer stein! What else can you expect? Dancing on tables, joyful singing, lots of camaraderie, and the merriment that comes with celebrating this old tradition. Oh, and did we mention there are approximately 14 tents, each able to seat anywhere from 4,000 to 11,000 people, and each has its own distinctive characteristic (certain food sold, type of music playing, etc.)

  • A Guide to Buying Commercial Microwaves

    As any restaurant professional knows, the equipment you stock your establishment with matters a great deal when it comes to running your business efficiently. When your staff has to deal with faulty equipment, it slows them down, which causes them to be unable to provide the great customer experience you strive for. Unlike home food preparation equipment, the appliances you use in a restaurant setting must be high-powered, and built to withstand an incredible amount of use, day in and day out. This is especially true of complicated appliances such as microwaves. When you buy commercial microwaves for your restaurant, you want to know that they can provide years of trouble-free service. The commercial microwaves on the market today all have several commonalities and several major differences. Commercial units that you'll be considering will all be higher powered than residential models, which allows them to heat food much faster. Commercial microwaves will also feature all stainless-steel exteriors, which makes for easier cleanup and a much lower chance of wearing out or becoming damaged in the fast-paced commercial kitchen environment. There are some major differences in models though, and which one you choose is highly dependent upon your restaurant's individual needs. The Panasonic NE-1024 is a 1000 watt commercial microwave w/ dial timer. Just $166.79 The Panasonic NE-3280 is a 3200 watt commercial microwave, steamer, and rethermalizer with 5 power levels and 16 programmable memory pads. $3549

     SIZE First, you'll need to determine the size of the commercial microwaves you're considering purchasing. There are models on the market in many different sizes, and you need to assess your individual requirements. Consider first what kind of counter space you have available, and then consider what types of dishes you'll be heating in it. Unless you're a smaller or lower-volume establishment, odds are that your kitchen will need more than one microwave. Consider buying units of different sizes for different uses. For instance, you might have a smaller unit for your prep area that's used exclusively for heating sauces and small side dishes. Then, you can have a larger unit that's meant for heating larger dishes or defrosting large packages of ingredients. POWER Another consideration you need to pay attention to is the cooking power of your commercial microwaves. These units are available in a variety of power ratings, and the amount of power your microwave generates is the biggest factor in determining how fast it will be able to heat food. This is an area where it is critical to know what types of foods you'll be heating, and for what purposes. For example, if you're planning to defrost large portions of frozen meats or vegetables, you're going to need a microwave with a fairly large power rating. Otherwise, it's simply going to take too long to accomplish this task. Not only will this slow down your staff and affect the overall efficiency of your operation, but  you could run into some problems with your ingredients being outside of the safe temperature zones for too long a period. On the other hand, if you're selecting a unit that's going to be used primarily for heating small side dishes and sauces, then you don't need or want a unit that's overpowered. Instead, choose something with a lower power rating. This will save you money, counter space, and reduce the risk of overheating your dishes. PRICE Finally, you want to know that you're purchasing your commercial microwaves at a price that is fair, and getting great service from your equipment dealer. In the past, restaurateurs purchased their equipment from local restaurant supply dealers at a physical location. Now, thanks to the Internet, it's no longer necessary to deal only with your local suppliers. You can often save money, and even get much better service by shopping online. With the money you can save, you might want to consider upgrading to even better equipment. After all, the restaurant equipment you buy will ultimately affect your bottom line!

  • A Post Summer Treat

    Image Courtesy of www.celebrityicing.com

    San Francisco is about the only city in America that doesn't get stifling hot in the summer, and even there, citizens see  a few days in the steamy nineties. In the South and Midwest, hot temperatures last almost unbearably for months, and whole businesses flourish by combating these seasonal trends. Air condioning repairmen, water parks, and travel agencies see most of their business by offering an escape from the heat. It isn't a business model that functions year round, but these temperature combatants can prove exceptionally lucrative during the warmest months of summer. Smaller businesses can also make money fighting the heat, and many see profits grow with the simple decision to buy a snow cone machine. Appealing to the appetites of children and the nostalgia of adults, snow cones remain a profitable item to sell, especially during the warmest weeks of the year.

    Only

    They've been a staple for concessions stands and boardwalk vendors for decades, but really any business can buy a snow cone machine and implement it into their menus. Unless your business operates in the tropics, snow cones don't have to be offered all year: they can be served for only a few months from a patio kiosk or put on the menu as a seasonal treat. More refined establishments, too, can buy a snow cone machine and retain their elegant reputation. "Italian shaved ice" or granita can be marketed instead of the campier "snow cone," since people of any socioeconomic background can enjoy the desserts.

    After the investment of the the initial machine, the cost of production is infinitely less than most menu items. Blocks of ice are incredibly inexpensive, and the syrups, creams, and other adornments cost very little to keep on hand. It's a timeless treat that everyone loves, and it's effortless to market when the temperatures outside are soaring. Though summer may be officially over, the summertime temperatures continue to soar in the South (and other parts of the US as well). Ultimately, right now would be a wonderful time to buy a snow cone machine for your home or your business and hang on to summer a little longer. Our snow cone machines come in a number of price points- view our selection here! Need the syrup, snow cone cups, and dipper spoons? We've got it all!

  • National Food Safety Education Month

    Each recurring September, the foodservice industry participates in a month-long National Food Safety Education Program that is intended to raise awareness about proper food safety practices. 2011 marks the 17th year of this important tradition and we hope it will be the best year yet. The National Restaurant Association (NRA) and ServSafe have teamed up and are offering a number of great resources for you- all free of charge. Everything from informational posters, like the one below, and free downloads are available online, and they're loaded up with great industry info and tips. Visit these resources here.

      Every year there is a theme that accompanies the "message" of the program, and this year, the theme is "Lessons Learned from the Health Inspection." Every restaurant in the US knows the importance of maintaining a sanitary workspace in the back of the house. Annual Health Inspections are implemented to make sure restaurants are adhering to the rules of food safety. From the handling of food to properly sanitizing, storing, and cleaning, there are valuable resources for every person to read up on, whether you are associated with a restaurant kitchen or not. In fact, food safety is something that we can all learn from. All the same, fundamental rules apply when cooking at home. For instance, good personal hygiene applies to everyone working in the kitchen, whether you are making dinner for your family or for a full house of customers at a restaurant. In addition, making sure that workspaces and countertops are cleaned properly and regularly is another imperative and universal food safety tip that can keep cross contamination at bay.  However, what makes the resources available online so valuable is that they raise awareness on other, less talked about food safety problems and they provide answers on how you can prevent them from happening. For instance, did you know you should always label your leftovers and excess food before storing it away? Or that food should be stored in designated food storage containers within a certain temperature range in order to prevent you or your customers from foodborne illnesses? Don't take your health for granted- learn today how you can consistently ensure food safety whenever you're cooking, and become an expert in the field!!   To learn more about how you can train yourself and/or your fellow employees about food safety, visit the Serv Safe website and the National Restaurant Association.

  • Top Chef in San Antonio


    Image

    The rumor mill has been churning away for the past few weeks with news that the James Beard and Emmy Award Winning show, Top Chef, has been filming right here in the Alamo City. After much speculation, we now know that this is in fact the case. On August 9th, Bravo confirmed that the hit series is spotlighting three cities in Texas: San Antonio, Austin, and Dallas, for its Top Chef : Texas edition, and it's undoubtedly going to bring with it a great deal of exposure to the lone star state.

    La Prensa, a San Antonio based publication quoted our mayor Julian Castro saying, "Top Chef provides an innovative way to promote San Antonio's growing stature as a culinary destination to a broad audience. Our city's historic character and unique cuisine will be highlighted in a creative way."

    We couldn't agree more. The local culinary talent here in San Antonio is something that has been a strong attraction and component to our culture, and it's no wonder that successful shows like Top Chef are catching on to the buzz.

    San Antonio, home to the newest Culinary Institute of America campus, and to a wide range of multi-talented "culinarians" and chefs, has become a center where culinary arts thrive. We think between the creativity and bustling culinary growth in San Antonio, the laid back vibe in Austin, and the upscale- luxe dining experience in Dallas, that Top Chef will have a great ninth season.

    Emeril Lagasse and Hugh Acheson will be serving as the newest judges and they'll be joining show regulars Padma Lakshmi, Tom Colicchio and Gail Simmons as they journey across Texas. Top Chef : Texas will premier this Fall!

    Stay tuned!
