Today it was officially announced that I am, or will be on July 1st, the new Food Service Manager at work. This new position means I get to do things my way...mwhahahaha!!! Okay, so I will get to change things up but not in an evil overlord kinda way. After lengthy talks with the camp director we both are looking at taking the food quality in a better direction. While it is camp, we shouldn't be limited to camp food. We both want people to walk away saying, "Wow, that was a great meal" instead of , "Wow, that was great.....for camp food."
I will slowly be incorporating fresher, less processed foods into the menu and am really excited about adding new foods to the repertoire. I've been paying attention to the types of foods and particular dished that are hits and misses. I have a ton of notes and ideas that I can't wait to implement. There are a few dishes in particular that I'm looking forward to "taking to the next level".
I haven't had a challenge like this in a long time and cooking and organization is one area where I can shine. Fingers crossed the "management" aspect doesn't outweigh the creative outlet of the position!!
