Blue cheese and chocolate? Who would have thought?

Sunil's insight:

Molecular gastronomy is not a scientific cooking, it is scientific understanding of cooking or rational behind the cooking. somehow, I do agree with the article, molecular gastronomy is very emerging trend in food industry. specially in Haute cuisine restaurant, molecular gastronomy concept is widely adopted. there are some restaurant misinterprated the norms of Molecular gastronomy concept and used the chimical to produce food in restaurant. people do feel curious and exciteted to try those scientiific fusioned food. customers' perception is generious to accept the different kinds of foods which are not usually cooking at home.

 

other hand, due to the mordern technology, most of the cooking chimicals are often available in supermarket. people want try to know the new cooking may be through online video, they have information through news, internet and son on. therefore, restaurant business has peer presure  as customers' demand shifted from traditionalism to scientific cooking. the both perspectives of molecular gastonomic trends have to acknowledge by manager in order to differentiate the products and serives in hotel business.

Liquid nitrogen allowed under strict controls

Sunny>> Alcohol related harm is well documented and heavily displayed in the media, to add to the list is the use of liquid Nitrogen in making supposedly "fancy" drinks. Following the incident in the UK in which an 18 year old girl had to have her perforated stomach removed after ingesting a cocktail that contained the infamous liquid, the NSW office of Liquor Gaming Racing or OLGR banned the use of liquid nitrogen in making cocktails. However, the department intends to ease the use of Liquid nitrogen in making drinks under strict procedures and controls to ensure the safety of people consuming such drinks. The use of this 'ingredient' will be allowed only for licensed premises where the use of nitrogen is permitted. Personally, it is a smart move by the OLGR but unfortunately only NSW have this move implemented, other states have no regulations or procedures in the use of this substance. I think it would be a good idea for an Australian federal body to implement this rule around Australia to ensure fairness and safety for the entire population. By creating Standard regulations for the strict use of Liquid NO2 in all Australian bars and hospitality venues will be in the interest of all. Head down to EDV for a liquid nitrogen Infused Espresso Martini before it is banned from Melbourne!.

Minimum alcohol price would hurt hospitality: AHA

Minimum alcohol price would hurt hospitality: AHA | Resort and hotel | Scoop.it
The Australian Hotels Association has announced its opposition to a national minimum alcohol price, claiming it would have an adverse impact on the country's hospitality industry.

Sunil's comment, September 10, 2013 9:02 AM
Sunny>> The Australian National Preventive Health Agency (ANPHA) considers alcohol to have a negative impact on the the society and intends to impose a minimum pricing for alcoholic beverages to be sold for to reduce alcohol consumption and alcohol related harm. However, the AHA or Australian Hotels Association are strongly against this decision as it will adversely affect the industry if there is minimum pricing on alcoholic beverages. AHA argues that by minimum pricing could actually hurt responsible, moderate drinks more than problem drinkers. If this minimum pricing is implemented in Australia, the hospitality industry would be adversely affected and will result in reduced patronage across the country and the viability of the domestic wine industry would be threatened. Personally, I would consider this to be a bad idea, the hospitality industry is already suffering from poor economy, if minimum pricing is implemented it will cause an uproar within the population and majority of hospitality companies and businesses would be against this. Due to the clustering of products around the nominated minimum price would result in other products hike up their prices in order to differentiate themselves and be perceived as a higher quality product.

Sunil's comment, September 10, 2013 1:06 AM
'KeepCup' an Australian based company is on a mission to educate people about the environmental benefits of opting for re usable coffee cups over disposable ones. They are intending to boost its popularity by targeting three market segments: people who love coffee, people who care about the environment and people who appreciate good design. Research shows that there is enough plastic in 28 disposable cups to create one Reusable KeepCup coffee cups. And even though both products are made of plastic. The objective is about less plastic. Another great innovative idea to help save the environment, by creating awareness and encouraging people to use these reusable coffee cups there will be significant drop in disposable cup usage and reduce in landfill waste, and not just that: The Company claims to have saved 3.5 billion disposable cup from landfill, by doing that they have saved enough energy to power 5000 homes for a year and saved 50,000 trees from being chopped down. That's a great Achievement in my eyes. I'd highly recommend cafe's & school cafeteria's should adapt this concept by partnering with companies like KeepCup and sell these in their coffee shops at discounted rates and encouraging their customers to help save the environment. I've already ordered mine!.

Generally, alcohol is seen as having a positive role in a variety of social settings. However, excessive drug and alcohol use makes life more difficult for the management team at the workplace. The effect of alcohol is severe in some case. It can caused loss of control over staff behaviour, decreased concentration and awareness or risky behaviour. The central nervous system of the employees is under stress. They then feel tired, ill or stressed while working (The Salvation Army).

I think to have a clear policy for alcohol and drug can be benefit and reducing the problem for staff, customers and the workplace. It is the task of management to create a low risk environment by implementing policies around the prevention of intoxication and drug use. It's not only for to protect the workplace reputation and image but also to keep their employees safe.

KIM's :Free wifi should be included rather than excluded because it is one small way to stand out from those in the industry that don't provide it for free or offer second rate services. Many resorts and hotels in Australia have provided free wifi and they are looking for ways to improve it to offer more to its guests. Providing that little bit extra to guests helps keep them coming back. Personally, free wifi is one of the factor influences on decision making when booking accommodation (except for hotel and resort in remote areas). I think business and leisure travellers who are really need to access to email, news and information and $18 a day is absolutely disgusting to expect people to pay

Sunil's comment, September 4, 2013 2:01 AM
I agree when the author stated ‘value is a perception’. From my point of view, depend on the customer’s background, different customer will have different re-action when consuming the same kind of service of product. The point to encourage businesses to deliver value rather than concentrate only on financial vitalities (cost, price, profit, etc…) is a strong argument. It helps businesses to define their visions and strategies to leverage their customer expectation. Value is the core part in sustainability for business. But rather than categorized the term as ‘value’, I prefer the word ‘value-added’. It will be more suitable for all types of businesses model, existent or emergence, because vitality isn’t only a destination to reach, but it is a journey for businesses to take. To move forward, the value-added must be consistent. Businesses must be precise about defining their own value-added. What difference they want to make to be able to stand out on the market. They must locate their strengths and weaknesses. How can they develop skills or how to adapt the adding value into existing procedures. Those are the point they next to analyse.

Uniform is a representation of a company or an organization. In hospitality, uniform takes the key role in grooming of staff. Guest associates the brand value and brand image to the standard of employee’s appearance. Not only it promotes the brand of the hotel, but also it plays a significant part when guest is bought into contact with staff. Moreover, today’s uniform has become increasingly fashionable due to the demand from employer.


As cited above, organization must consider adapting their staff uniform following the nature of their businesses. That would particularly benefits for company and the consumer and it is a good sign to see companies are taking this matter in their hands. On the other hand, I think organizations must communicate with their staff first before introduce change. Because their employees will be the ones who wear uniform when they work onsite, other than the ‘fashionable’ and ‘suitable’ criteria, uniform must be convenience. The good design is a design which combined needs of staff, organizations and guest together. In which, comfort should come as the first criteria, then design and eco-friendly. It should be designed in order to satisfy the all these different needs.
Sunil's comment, September 12, 2013 10:17 PM
KIM>> In an increasingly competitive marketplace, it’s important for companies to create a brand identity and improve brand image. Recent research by Gallup highlights the impact of front-line staff on the company’s relationship with the customer. For example, employee uniforms are an important component of a hospitality establishment’s brand identity (Nelson and Bowen 2000).
Enhancing the knowledge of customers about the brand through marketing initiatives helps companies to develop a positive brand attitude in the customer (Gupta, Melewar and Bourlakis 2010) A positive attitude towards the brand, in turn, helps to generate a positive brand response for influencing the purchase activity of the customer. (Keller and Lehmann 2006) This brand identity, so developed, helps in reaching out to customers, helps the company stand out from the competition, and conveys business stability

Leading sustainable hospitality companies such as Accor, Marriott, Intercontinental and Hilton hotels have already installed LED lights because it not only save cost but can reduce emissions and pollutions to the atmosphere. When hotel or resort tells their customers about their commitment to environment, hotel or resort will likely to receive a better attitude from customers. This way will also help hotel or resort improve its brand image and reputation.

I agree with the food issue raised by this article. Halal food production concept allow consumers to have quality ingredients, because, halal food certification does not only concerned with the animal slughtering techniques, but also keep eyes on the product quality. the development of halal food business would be increased, due to the Muslim religious beliefs. Muslim religion is very strict religion and followers have stronge commitment towards the religion. they only consumed the halal food and influenced to retailers to provide halal items, because of the higher purchasing power the Muslim communities have. therefore, hotel manager has to understand the customers' demography and provide the service to anticipate their needs and wants. as being a manager, it is his/her responsibility to implement appropriate food system in order to respect the customers' food heritage or culture.

According to the Queensland coffee chain Merlo, it is no ordinary bird, it is an extremely rare Jacu Bird Coffee from the Camocim Estate in Brazil which have been specially procured for the Australian Market by the company. It is set to be sold at 10 $ a pop. This new product is already quite popular in Brisbane where customers can buy the coffee as well as the coffee beans packaged in tins for personal use. Australia is one of only countries where coffee is not only a huge industry, but coffee play's an important role in people's daily life. And with such a vast Market to choose from, new product's like Kopi Luwak and Jacu Bird Coffee are bound to perform exceptionally on the market. Would you try this product? I certainly would.

The OneTab app eliminates the need for patrons to hand their credit card over, prevent overspending, fraudulent cards or cards with insufficient funds. With today's easily available technology, almost everybody has a Smartphone. With online banking and other methods of payment available through smartphones, it is a surprise this app isn't popular already. It seems simple and easy to operate, with just a touch of a button patrons can select their venue and create tabs, set tab limits on their spend, and the entire transaction is settled at the end of the night with a touch of a button. This piece of technology could be steered towards hotels and other hospitality venues to broaden the range of its use and making people's lives a bit more convenient.
Sunil's comment, September 11, 2013 12:54 AM
<Hannah> Forget the PayPass 'Tap and Go', now we can use our phone for almost everything. Based on the increasing number of smartphone' owners and the convenience of mobile technology, I think this App does have a promise future. Personally I will be hesitated to use the App, as a consumer or as a business. I was surprised when they tested the App in bars and cafes. From my personal experience, little cafes, bars or even a few restaurants ask their guest to pay cash rather than use their credit cards. Even at William Angliss, you can only use your card when your purchase is over a certain limit, mostly due to the commission on money transaction. I wouldn’t say it’s a good thing but it’s a common practice in VIC and NSW. I mean if I use the App, I still have to carry my cash or credit card around in case the cafe or bar doesn’t have this service.

Secondly, I’m concerned about security issues. If I lost my card, I can immediately cancel my card or put a hold on it. When I lost my phone, if the person took my phone decided to purchase, in this case I can’t do anything to prevent it. However, I think it would be an interesting situation if businesses all around Australia start to adopt this App.

For higher cost product and service providers, they should not applied credit card surcharge because consumers have already paid higher prices for its products and services and they should be taken cared by the provider. In other words service providers should pay for credit card surcharge.

<Hannah> I think if business includes the credit card surcharge in their rate or eliminate it, front line staff will have less stress upon check out. From my personal experience, guest doesn't like to be surprised with additional fees even when they were informed upon check-in about the charge. Interstate guests can use debit card or bank card but most of the complaints came from international guests. Usually they have no choice but need to pay for the extra charge. A recent study from CCAAC (Commonwealth Consumer Affairs Advisory Council, 2013) questioned the transparancy of credit card surchage and transaction fee. The Reserve Bank charged only 0.86% on each transaction for Visa and Master Card. I hope in the future, our industry can cut out this charge for consumer.

Sunil's comment, September 12, 2013 9:58 PM
KIM>> The visible tattoos that individuals adorn their bodies with can become the subject of discussion in the workplace. There is a diversity of opinion as to whether tattoos are a positive, negative or neutral presence in the workplace. An employer's approach will therefore often depend on what kind of business they are in and sometimes their personal preferences. More traditional or conservative workplaces may for example adopt a different attitude to tattoos to a workplace with a more creative environment. If the appearance of tattoos is undesirable in a particular workplace due to the nature of the employer's business and/or dress and appearance standards, it is open to employers to develop or expand existing policies in this area. It may be that in a policy, a distinction will be drawn between types of tattoos which will be regarded as acceptable and those which will be regarded as unacceptable. There may be a "cover up" policy with respect to tattoos generally or only certain types of tattoos or certain locations for tattoos

This article give's us an insight on Brita's new product 'Vivreau'. it is a bottling machine which allows restaurant owner's to provide their customers filtered and bottled water and minimise its impact on the environment. Brita is a bottling company which manufactures this new technology allowing it's user to bottle chilled sparkling and still water (like any other pre-bottled water products in the market) by dispensing still or sparkling water into reusable carafe styled bottles which can then be placed on tables for customer to enjoy.As these bottles are re usable there is no need for restaurant owners to purchase pre bottled water. This Reduces packaging waste and saves business owners a lot of money. An amazing piece of technology!. This would revolutionize the way the hospitality industry serves it's bottled water, especially in hotel's, motel's, resort's etc. where packaged water is an essential and mandatory amenity and product for rooms and dining venues. Reusable packaged bottles can be used as part of room amenities to reduce packaging waste. Also, Environmental conscious guests would be impressed by the Hotel's contribution and interest in saving the environment. The Government should promote this technology in form of incentives to companies who would use this product and undertake marketing strategies and campaigns to show the importance of this product in reducing plastic waste and protecting the environment.

A new concept from an old idea.The hospitality industry needs innovative and clever concepts to attract customers and provide the public with new and exciting products. The owners/investors of this new venue 'Neighourhood' came up with just that. This article talks about the launch of a watering hole that's not only a bar but a radio station. The location was originally a Radio station called 'Bondi 88 FM' which went into liquidation and gave the owners Simon McGoram, Eddie De Souza, Anthony Hughes and Keith Hodgson the opportunity to convert their vision into reality. This cool new place is set to open in September which will seat around 80 patrons where patrons will be able to see the station in action inside the studio, and the music being played in the bar will be what is being broadcasted at that moment. As for the food and drinks, Neighbourhood will feature a full and open custom-designed menu. Personally, i think it is a great concept and it could really be a start to a new trend in the industry, especially in Australia where great music, good food and drinks go hand in hand. Looking forward to the launch of this new concept (Radio station/Bar) hit the airwaves of Bondi.
