Food is half of what your bed and breakfast promises. It seems to me it should be an excellent offering, with you providing the best food you can. That means fresh, local, organic ingredients cooked into delicious, nutritious recipes. Your food, simple or elaborate, should make people yearn for more.
I really believe in the KISS principle — Keep It Simply Simple. Not necessarily the food itself, but the presentation and choices. Simple doesn’t mean plain or inadequate. Elegance can be synonymous with simplicity. You should make the decisions about breakfast and not ask your guests, who want to relax, and not to make any more decisions than necessary. Don’t bombard them with choices.
I’m in love with the “new” kitchen we created by replacing our pots and pans, cookie sheets, and plastic water bottles with stainless steel, and our mixer too. The added grain mill and bread machine completed the makeover. It’s fantastic because we are cooking more things than ever before but spending less time in the kitchen with the cooking and cleaning than ever before. And the food we are preparing is better for our health. If that’s important to me, a non-innkeeper, just think how important it is to you and your guests! Here’s what we did with the cookware of pots, pans and cookie sheets.
We’ve just completed a kitchen revolt, of sorts. We decided to pay attention to our health. While we were replacing our beat-up pots, pans and water bottles with stainless steel items, we replaced our mixer too. Then we added a grain mill and bread machine to finish the creation a wonderfully easy-to-use and healthy kitchen. It’s fantastic because we are cooking more things than ever before but spending less time in the kitchen with the cooking and cleaning. And the food we are preparing is healthier and tastier since we are using whole grain wheat. If that’s important to me, a non-innkeeper, just think how important it is to you and your guests! For now, we’ll talk about the kitchen appliances — a mixer, wheat grinder and bread maker.
