Welcome to our special ‘Focus on Profit’ issue. Each story topic this issue has been chosen to highlight the benefits of offering a particular meal type on the menu in terms of generating profit for your foodservice business. Whether you’re working in a pub, club, cafe or restaurant, you’ll find informative advice and expert comment which will help guide you towards making sound menu choices that will help you boost repeat business and aid the bottom line.

Also this issue we interview Karen Doyle, who as head teacher at Le Cordon Bleu in Sydney has the challenging job of mentoring our next generation of chefs. Karen is also heavily involved in the Australian Culinary Federation and the Women in WACS program and gives us some insights into how that ties in to her commitment to encouraging and assisting young apprentices.


This issue’s cover interview with Dominic Criniti tells the inspiring story of how a family business built on passion and hard work has managed to grow far beyond its humble beginnings. We also examine the growing tendency of foodservice professionals to bring in commercially prepared soups and sauces which can be used as bases to which their own finishing touches can be added, in preference to the time and effort of from-scratch preparation. Plus looks at spices and seasonings driving menu extension, choosing the right coffee, technological innovations in bakery and more!


In this issue we look at Mount Alvernia College’s ‘from scratch’ approach with a focus on fresh seasonal produce; how to work out your winter canteen menu; a spotlight on Maggi’s Classic soup mixes which are perfect for the colder months; and provide tips and hints for effective fundraising.
