'I have been a restaurant critic for over a decade, written reviews of well over 700 establishments, and if there is one thing I have learnt it is that people like reviews of bad restaurants. No, scratch that. They adore them, feast upon them like starving vultures who have spotted fly-blown carrion out in the bush.
Dining Roulette: The Truth about Restaurants from the Inside Out is essential reading for every foodie, restaurant goer, and restaurant owner and manager. It reveals the secrets, tips, and industry information needed to establish and maintain a successful business, and gives practical, prescriptive advice to restaurant patrons about what they should look for to determine which restaurants are worth their patronage. Filled with real-life, jaw-dropping stories from the culinary industry, this book is a wake-up call. Did you know that restaurant chains may become a site for the next generation of terror threats? What should you avoid at your favorite restaurant that will make you sick? With authentic, definitive, and often humorous real-life experiences, author John Brown's work is an industry insider's take on the restaurant industry. Brown offers prescriptive advice for restaurant owners, including: ten suggestions to stay in business, how to beat the industry employee turnover rate, and how to avoid common mistakes. For restaurant patrons, Brown gives advice on: evaluating the cleanliness of a restaurant, restaurant vocabulary and phrases, and fine eating establishments that every foodie should visit. Dining Roulette shows why health departments struggle to cope with the everyday challenges of maintaining proper health and safety standards, and why so many people die every year after being served in our restaurants. If you've ever eaten in a restaurant or have upcoming reservations, you must read this book.
This book has been designed to be interactive. Included are exercises, coaching questions and plenty of blank pages to document your own personal journey. I would also encourage each of you to write your own book as well. I believe there is so much untapped potential in each of us and we are all capable of teaching and learning from each other.
My intention is to share with you the disciplines, rituals, attitudes and characteristics that have help shape me into the "SELF" defined woman I am today.
What is a "SELF" defined woman?
S = speaks authentically
E = exudes enthusiasm, energy and is engaging
L = leverages her strengths
F = freely chooses her path, responses and actions in life
A "SELF" defined Woman has a superior commitment to success and achieves results by demonstrating her power through:
SELF - Esteem - respect, worth, high regard, high values
SELF - Motivation- vision, driving force, inspiration and action, intrinsic
SELF - Expression - knows her strengths, core values
SELF - Leadership - set as an example, self discipline (integrity with word to self)
My wish for each of you reading my book is you develop in the ways that will be the most personally fulfilling for you. That you use the stories, examples and exercises in this book as a resource and a source of inspiration to create more of the life you want.
