What Are You, Chicken?

Tuesday, March 11th, 2014

It’s healthy to be happy, and it’s especially important to incorporate playfulness into one’s work environment.  When the two come together in beautiful harmony as they often do at my restaurant & wine bar Sweet Revenge®, I refer to it as my workplayce.  Get ready for Fun with Chicken…

Recently I needed to analyze how how much labor goes into breaking down chicken into ready-to-use portions. I wanted to compare this cost against the cost of buying chicken for a higher cost per pound in the portion size we’re looking for. Breaking down chicken entails removing the skin and separating the drumstick from the thigh. I filmed my chef Danielle doing this “chicken dance” :) , and she calculated the time spent doing the project, along with the weights of the chicken once separated and the weight of the removed skin. I took this data and ran the numbers. Result:  we will be buying just the thighs going forward. The incremental increase per pound is offset by the savings in labor and how we can utilize that employee time to accomplish other activities. I have to say, I kinda crack myself up….and yup that’s me laughing in the background.

Cupcakes & Beers (and Marlo Scott :)) on The TODAY Show

Friday, March 9th, 2012

What a thrill! I had a blast with the TODAY show’s Sara Haines when she visited us at Sweet Revenge® during a cupcake crawl at the end of January.  Sara took on the not-for-the-weak task of trying beer pairings with 5 cupcakes and 4 cookies.  We were thoroughly impressed with her– she is bold and hilarious and knows how to handle her sweets & brewhahas!  When the segment aired, the ladies had my cupcakes on the set with them – I am sooo seriously fortunate!   Massive thanks to Sara, Kathie Lee, Hoda and their amazing production team for their phenomenal support of my small business!

My segment with Sara starts at 2:15.
