We all remember and many of us still play Rock – Paper – Scissors. I. There is a game in the restaurant world that involves scissors but I personally wouldn’t play.




It is difficult for me to believe that scissors have, in many chain restaurant kitchens, replaced, the iconic badge of honor, Chef’s Knives. So for some the game now is: Frozen Bagged -Scissors. Everyone knows fresh beats frozen and reconstituted boil-n-a bag. A fresh burger is better than a frozen one, hand pattied is better than machine formed and fresh fries are much better than frozen. The food channel is very popular but I have yet to see a show on the use of scissors to open a boil-n-a-bag. I don’t think a show called “Reconstitution Kitchen – You freeze it and we thaw it!’ would make the cut.

So why do some chains spend their money on advertising trying to convince us their ‘reconstituted food is good. At least they discount and coupon trying to get closer to the real value of their product.. I would, however, rather stay home and thaw my own.
