Hello, my name is Caleb Jones. My plan for a successful future in life would be to do things that I enjoy. I would like my work to be interesting and my family life to be strong and positive. If I can feel comfortable at work, I will be able to do my job well. My grandmother was a chef when she was young. I have an interest in learning more about the food service industry and the restaurant business because of my grandmother.
As part of my research I shadowed Stephanie DeLang and other restaurant employees at Carrabba’s in Kennesaw. This included hosting, kitchen and food prep, dining, bartending, and overall customer satisfaction goals. I was surprised to see how busy and fast the hosts, servers, cooks and kitchen staff are in all parts of the restaurant. Customer service and satisfaction is very important to Carrabba’s employees and management. I enjoy cooking because I am relaxed and confident in my ability to make someone smile when they try my food. As part of my project I also created a pocket cookbook with some of my favorite recipes.
A pocket-sized family cookbook can be very helpful to college students. Recipes are simple and tasty. Each recipe fits on a 4in by 6in recipe card. This makes it easy for college students to take the recipe to the store or a friends place without having to carry a large cookbook. The pages are laminated in order to protect each recipe.
Making a balanced meal is harder than most college students expect. There is a lot more to cooking than the actual “cooking” of the food. Sometimes when people cook food the ingredients are not as fresh as they should be – this includes, eggs, meats, and even vegetables. Knowing how long it takes to prepare a recipe is important. Raw meats should be handled carefully. Suitable kitchen tools will make will make cooking more enjoyable. I recommend cleaning as you go!
This project was interesting. I found cooking to be peaceful and relaxing. I enjoy watching other people’s reactions when sampling the dishes that I prepared for my project. The pocket cookbook can be reproduced for future sales on college campuses. Thank you for your time and consideration of my senior project.
