How to make your business customer-oriented and future-proof

Numerous new trends and developments confront community restaurateurs daily with the question of how to develop their business in the future. Making the right decisions about this requires good analysis and a clear vision of the desired goal.

The textbook „Modernes Küchenmanagement“ provides support in all kitchen matters: information, sample templates, checklists, calculation tables for all areas of responsibility in kitchen management. 

It is the universal guide for community catering and catering and is especially aimed at hoteliers, kitchen managers, chefs, restaurateurs and caterers.

Manfred Ronge has written an article on the subject of traceability in community catering under the motto "Contribution to food safety or necessary evil?"

Allergens & Co - Labelling in gastronomy

Manfred Ronge – Britta Macho – Karin Kvarda; Trauner Verlag: ISBN-13: 978-3990334324

Since 13 December 2014, it has been a fixed requirement for the catering industry: guests must be informed about the use of 14 defined allergens. With this book, allergen labelling can be implemented step by step in a practical manner - to suit the business: starting with the 14 allergens, through oral and written information, to setting up an allergen management system.

What is most interesting for most restaurateurs are the consequences in practice: Will all existing allergens have to be shown for every dish in every menu in the future? Or is it enough to inform guests in general about the use of certain allergens in the kitchen? The aim is not to ban certain products from the menu and restrict the creativity of the kitchen. Rather, it is about acquiring the relevant knowledge and sensitising staff to the issue. Good raw material management and clear labelling within the kitchen will therefore be essential in the future.

The Schratt family's cookbook - Culinary stories from Baden

Henriette Povse, Sutton Verlag, EAN (ISBN-13): 9783990243909

The legendary Katharina Schratt inspired Emperor Franz Joseph for decades not only with her acting skills, but also with her good cooking - the 'Kaiserguglhupf' is still a household name today. And where had Kathi learned to cook? With her mother Katharina Schratt née Wallner, of course!
The Rollettmuseum Baden preserves the cookbook of this elderly Kathi Schratt, in which she recorded her recipes from 1844 onwards. Henriette Povse, a long-time employee of the Rollettmuseum, has put together a panorama of the time around the recipe collection: Where did people go shopping back then? How was ice cream made? How was food stored?
Celebrity chef Manfred Ronge from Tattendorf has adapted some of the recipes to today's cooking and eating habits. But the numerous original recipes from the late Biedermeier period also make your mouth water!
