Move over gas-based kitchens, induction cook equipment trends are taking over! European foodservice has been making the transition into electric-based cooking for a while, and now it's finally time for America to get a chance to shine. Introducing induction cooking in your commercial kitchen is a benefit for business as well as the economy. Who doesn't love amazing profits while being eco-friendly?
There's no denying COVID-19 has dramatically altered our way of life over the last few weeks, and will continue to do so during the weeks ahead. The health and safety of our employees, our customers, as well as the general public, is our top priority. Here at PFEG, we are doing our part to follow CDC guidelines and practicing safe, responsible distancing to help stop the spread of this virus.
As we all know, flavor trends come and go all the time. But every year, the National Restaurant Association releases their annual What's Hot Culinary Forecast dictating those that are going to be the most import, and the most profitable. This year's report says, "Results indicate that Americans are still hungry for healthy food, but they are also interested in more options, new alternatives, and going beyond simple healthy into sustainable options that are good for everyone and the environment."
Taking a walk through the Boos Blocks woods, so to speak, can lead to the discovery of a whole range of game-changing solutions. After all, whenever we see that "BooS" branded into the side of a wooden butcher block, all we can think of is quality. But why?
Congratulations to Sandra Kravetz and Kim Lehr-McKeown for their recent recognition in the TotalFoodService 2019 Top Women in Metro New York Foodservice & Hospitality edition.

Here are the spotlights on Sandra and Kim:
Oktoberfest is right around the corner. Celebrations and fall festivals are just about to heat up in New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut. Many of these events draw inspiration from the German version, so let's take a close look at some of the cooking equipment at one of the world's largest food and beverage events.
Summer is right around the corner, and whether you're a country club looking to upgrade your service or a restaurant looking to maximize the potential of your outdoor space, we have some foodservice and hospitality equipment that can help make your summer more successful.
Even if a golf course resembles Augusta National in the springtime, a successful food and beverage program often drives more profit than greens fees and country club memberships. With a massive space to operate, and a destination for major events, a country club is an ideal foodservice operation. But what if the current F&B program isn’t up to par?
There are plenty of reasons why cooking can be intimidating for some – too many steps to follow, fear of ruining a dish, overwhelmed by confusing equipment. But when a piece of foodservice equipment comes along that’s intuitive, efficient, and simple to operate, even a new, unskilled hire can cook a juicy prime rib with ease. With the Convotherm 4 easyTouch® touchscreen controls, cooking with a combi oven steamer has never been easier.
Whether it's a K-12 school cafeteria or a fast casual coffee shop, space is limited in just about every foodservice operation.
