Different types of Asian broth

While watching reruns of Chopped recently, I encountered a moment that made my skin crawl. Bear in mind, this is not my typical reaction to Chopped, a show that normally, despite its extremely chaotic energy, helps me relax. But not on that day.

Why Massive Global Events are a Catalyst for Change | By Alan Young

Uncertain times are a catalyst for change, especially within the hospitality industry. Hospitality, after all, has always held a somewhat notorious reputation for being reluctant to change. While other sectors are, by nature, more malleable to new-edge advancements and best practices, our industry often takes its time, testing the waters long before making the commitment to dive in. That is until a global event inspires disruption that simply can't be ignored. A worldwide crisis, natural...
