    Your Family Meals

    What do you guys like to cook for your family meals?
    What do your staff like you to cook?
    Do you stick to the same things recycled, or keep trying new things?

    This is a pretty broad question Magic but this is what my seven and eight YO daughters had tonight. I should have bought more.

    Do you mean family meal a in meals for your family or do you mean family meal as in what a line cook eats at work?
    Where I work they always prepare left overs per-se and they are very repetitive and very bad. Ribs, NC bbq, beans, finger sandwiches that never got sent out, etc. And it is all over cooked and poorly seasoned. But hey it's free food and I'm starving.

    I should have been more clear, I was talking about the stuff you cook for staff meals when you're working

    I used to work at a place that served staff meal for 50 people, the budget was $500 per day for staff meal, we ate very well (although only once in 14 hour shift) it was run on a roster so each chef had to cook once every 3 weeks ( with a dedicated staff cook) there was a broad mix of cultures ( Japanese, English, Chinese, Vietnamese, Aussies & Kiwis) so there was usually plenty of variety.
    Now it's just 4 of us, we eat pretty well, usually made up of what's floating around on the "staff shelf"

    I hate soup. Good thing I work in IT/Instructional Design, not restaurants.
