Senses in Dining

...a human dining experience Food in recent times has evolved beyond just the taste buds. Eye appeal, smell and textures have now become involved in a complete dining experience. Today it is not just about how good the food on your plate tastes, but also about where you eat it, how it looks on your plate, how you eat it, the sounds, if any emitting from it and how it smells. In short it involves all senses in the human body. Where you dine is an important aspect in what you take out of a meal. If you have the same food at a roadside dhaba and at a Michelin star restaurant, it will still feel and taste different because of the different dining environments. Ambience is an important aspect of the dining experience. This is the reason why restaurants spend a pretty penny on getting the look of the dining area just right in order to give their customers a unique meal. In ethnic or specialty restaurants, the entire focus is on recreating the atmosphere, which is why you have traditional art work on walls, mirrors and staff wearing traditional clothes as a fixture in Indian specialty restaurants or pictures from 50’s America along with car seat type seating in an American themed diner. Customers also get unconsciously perceived signals from the restaurant décor. Bright lights and loud colours, as found in most fast food joints gets them to hurry up and complete their food whereas subdued colours and dim lighting in upscale restaurants gets them to relax, linger at the table,......

Dining Hall

...Barrett dining hall through diverse selection of food, communal tables and casual dress creates an inclusive dining experience for students. When you walk into the dining hall for your first time as a college student, it seems a bit like a zoo. With people all over the place, running to grab the last piece of pizza; we all have a different view on our dining hall. When I walk in the first thing I see are patrons eating. Some people are by themselves eating alone and on their cell phones, or some people by themselves are studying, waiting for the next class to start. Most people are in groups conversing with new people, trying to meet as many people as possible. All over the world, food is used to bring people together. Working in the restaurant industry for two years I’ve learned that the atmosphere of which you are eating in can enrich or worsen your experience. The open floor plan of the dining hall creates easy access from all directions of Barrett, making it easy for students to get to the dining hall no matter where they are coming from. The open seating plan also makes is less awkward to sit by yourself when you’re grabbing a quick bowl of cereal before your 9am class. The area is spacious, and can hold a lot of students in different sections. The modern design is accentuated with this open floor plan. Barrett dining hall is definitely the nicest dining hall on campus with its updated features all over and the spacious, clean, modern look. I asked student Jordan Manny......

E Table

...Touch Screen Restaurant Menus Increase Dining Experience Ordering food in a restaurant via iPad is so 2010. Think beyond the iPad. Imagine a future without waiters, without anyone asking you if you want sparkling or still. Without the condescending glance of a server who thinks they know so much. Imagine sitting down to dinner at a table lit by an overhead projector and interacting with the projections on the table in front of us. Our order? Placed by the swipe of a finger. This is the future of restaurants. These types of table first introduce London’s “inamo” restaurant called E-Table, the interactive ordering system is designed to give patrons “more control over their dining experience”.  A projector, which is installed in the ceiling above each table, projects an interactive menu on the tabletop.  Using a touch mouse pad, patrons can navigate the menu, place orders, choose a virtual tablecloth, and project images of each meal on their plates to help them decide which one to get.  The system isn’t only for placing orders – patrons can also use it to play video games, call a taxi, or watch the chef prepare their meals via a live webcam!  E-Table also offers a lot of perks to the restaurant owners, like reduced staff costs, an increase in customer spending, and a more efficient way to deal with customers. How it works: The E-Table system uses overhead projection to deliver a menu and other digital images to a restaurant table-top. Projected images do overlay food......

...feedback, how to solve problems and make appropriate decisions and the overall view of the organization. The process of organizational development involves a plan or road map and like such needs to be in the hand of those at the helm of the journey. The research of these actions can be varied, such as the combination of phases or splitting phases into smaller ones. Either way you choose the more collaborative cooperation with other members the better success of the effort involved. This entry phase is where the initial relationship begins to take shape, this would be either internal or external. This arguably one of the more important steps within the process, that strong foundation theory, will typically determine the outcome of the project. The combination of people would obtain the information, analyze it in order to come to an educated conclusion to make the appropriate recommendation extracted from such. Another phase, yet equally important would be the focus upon the clarifications of what was recommended, turning them into a plan of action which would be integrated into management's plan for the change. Creating a more systematic approach with the organization the planning phase tends to create a more united team. The more systematic the plan is the more successful the change. On the other hand it has been found that the more diverse the plan becomes the more difficult the plan is to follow and the less likely it would merge with previous or future phases......

The United Energy Smart Meter Project

...The United Energy Smart Meter Project At the request of the Victorian Government United Energy is currently engaging in “best efforts” to replace the analogue meters on its network with smart meters. Smart meters are an advanced energy meter that measures the energy consumption of a consumer (Depuru, Wang and Devabhaktuni 2011), they allow for demand response energy distribution based on on-peak and off-peak consumption. The benefits of Smart meters are well recognised by many counties with world-wide deployment of digital meters expected to reach 212 million units by 2014, perceived benefits include; energy efficiency, environmental benefits, more consumer choice, better services and greater market competition. (Gerwen, Jaarsma & Wilhite R 2009, Filippini, Hrovatin & Zoric 2004, Victorian Auditor General 2009) About United Energy United Energy is an energy distributor responsible for the infrastructure required to distribute energy from the power station to the consumer. There are currently 16 major distribution networks in Australia with each energy distributor maintaining a monopoly over its designated area. (AEC 2009) Energy distributors own, operate and maintain the network of infrastructure that transports electricity from the generator to the consumer. They do not work directly with the consumer and instead work with energy retailers who are responsible for managing the relationship with the consumer. Energy retailers will bulk purchase energy from an......

From the Street Cart All the Way Up to the Exquisite Dining Table…

...From the Street Cart all the way up to the exquisite Dining Table… Based on the infamous common saying of “You are what you eat”; some may argue that they do not possess the freedom of choice in what they choose to eat on a daily basis throughout their life due to the external factors that affect their decision making. With limited income and resources, many people from the lower social backgrounds tend to have a restricted culinary menu of which they can opt to eat from. Investigating the other end of the scale of where the wealthier level of the social ladder are looked at closely; you will find the inverse of this trend where the range of eating preferences are limitless and not bound by any spending power restrictions, thus giving them the liberty to indulge in an abundance of edible choices. I am thoroughly interested in studying the eating habits of the wealthy and the un-wealthy classes in Egypt. My objective behind this research is to gain an understanding of the differences in terms of eating behavior according to their social background. My aim was to identify their likes, dislikes, thoughts, perceptions and motivations behind certain choices. By studying those factors closely, the motives behind consumption of different classes based on their economic circumstances were revealed. The reason behind this study was to yield significantly valuable information and insight into the eating habits of the rich and poor segments in Egypt. By doing this, I was able to......

Peppercorn Dining

...Peppercorn Dining is the diner on the campus of All-American University. The dynamics of the diner consists of fulltime workers, temporary workers, and student workers. The three partners of Square One Consulting; Roger, Lynn, and Erica, were having lunch at Peppercorn one afternoon; Erica worked at Peppercorn two years ago as a student worker. The manager of Peppercorn’s name is Drew Randall; he recognized Erica and came over to say high and chit chat with her about the “old days” when she worked at Peppercorn. During the course of their conversation, Erica asked Drew how things were currently operating; Drew replied by saying, “Staffing is a nightmare. We can’t find qualified people anywhere; recruiting and retention has become a constant challenge” (Cummings & Worley, 2008, p. 217). Of course, the other consultants were all ears and wanted to hear everything that Drew had to say. However, although Drew knew there were many symptoms of a much bigger problem, he had no idea what the “root” of the problem was. He would eventually enter into a contract with the consultants to get their unbiased, external point of view as to what the bigger problems really were at Peppercorn. The consultants would use various data collection methods involving the management, workers, and the customers to get a clearer picture as to what the actual problems were and why the students working at Peppercorn were unhappy and why recruitment for additional student help was unsuccessful. ......
