Specialties for each region of the U.S. – Southeast

The southeastern United States was a large-scale agricultural area represented by Georgia and South Carolina, and landowners who owned a vast farm the size of a country called plantation were also the main forces of the South during the Civil War. This is where the 17th century British colonialists first built in the Americas.

 

On the large farm, black slaves were overworked making their owners’ food all day long and developed unique dishes such as Hopin-Jack. Not only are various crops such as peaches, nuts, rice, and lemons grown on a large scale, but seafood dishes such as shrimp and fish are also developed because they are along the beach.

The Florida area is particularly famous for oranges brought by Spanish conquerors, and Cajun food and fried chicken from New Orleans were also made here. Barbecue is also a unique cooking culture here, so many foods that come to mind when we think of American cuisine come from the southeast. One peculiar thing is that Henry Ford was the founder of the famous Ford Motor Company who developed the world’s first barbecue grill.

Specialties for each region of the U.S. – Northeast

As you know, there are many areas in the northeastern United States, represented by New York and Pennsylvania, where Pilgrims immigrated to the United States in the early 17th century to escape persecution. Although it has been glorified a lot now, the Pilgrims at the time were truly commercial beggars among the beggars just before starvation. How scared and hungry they were, the natives who couldn’t see them taught them how to grow various foods and crops. It was the first Thanksgiving in 1621 that Pilgrims held the festival together by distributing the harvested food to the natives out of gratitude. But after a while, the situation reversed and the indigenous Indians were brutally slaughtered, which is a bitter irony of history. This is a glimpse of the cruelty of white migrants.

Anyway, the representative ingredients introduced at this time were nuts and syrup types, and Boston Baked Beans, which is still famous, is one of the representative dishes in the region. Not only that, but of course, seafood dishes have been developed because it is a seaside area along the Atlantic Ocean. The southern and inland regions of the United States, which will be introduced in a little while, can be seen as a place where not only political culture but also food culture stand at a counterpoint. Potato dishes were developed as a large number of Irish people migrated to the Boston area at the age of 19, and this led to the development of unique soup dishes such as New England chowder. And in the late 19th century, another large number of Italians immigrated to Boston. As a result, pizza and pasta, one of the world’s most popular dishes, have been improved to the American style and are loved.

The cost and procedure of starting a restaurant.

Small and medium-sized business owners who start restaurants such as restaurants and snack bars rarely plan and follow procedures through long-term preparations, and most of them quit their jobs suddenly or have problems with their existing businesses.
As a result, incomplete elements occur here and there from the process of preparing for a start-up, and there are many cases of start-ups with risks at risk. Today, we will look into the preparation procedures for starting a restaurant business in the hope that this risk will be reduced a little.

Restaurant

A restaurant refers to a store that provides food (everything you can eat or drink) to customers, and is also called a restaurant, restaurant, or restaurant.
Restaurants can be seen in a broader sense than restaurants or restaurants, and under the Food Sanitation Act, they can be classified into popular restaurants such as snack bars, general Baekban restaurants, expensive family restaurants, buffets, and entertainment restaurants such as pubs selling alcohol, karaoke bars, and room salons. You can understand the word starting a restaurant in a broad sense, including restaurants, snack bars, buffets, and entertainment restaurants.

Restaurant business.

The restaurant business refers to a job that runs a restaurant that sells food, and is a concept of a job that includes restaurants, franchises, cafes, and restaurants. As can be seen from the meaning of the restaurant industry, start-up of the restaurant industry can be understood as a field of occupation such as construction and transportation.

The cost of starting a restaurant.

There are not many results from the survey only on the cost of starting a restaurant, so we looked into the cost of starting a business for general self-employed people, including starting a restaurant business. According to the “2018 Financial Life Report for Ordinary People” released by Shinhan Bank, the average cost of self-employed people is 81.48 million won, and about 50% of founders use loans to raise funds for start-ups.

Since it takes a lot of start-up costs for small business owners to prepare for start-ups, most self-employed people take out loans to cover the necessary funds. For this reason, small business owners are showing a painful result of 80% closure rate within two years of their establishment, which eventually leads to incomplete employment and increased household debt due to loans, causing social problems.

Then, why do you start your own restaurant with such a large investment cost but insufficient preparation period? According to interviews and surveys of restaurant founders in Seoul, most of the restaurant founders, such as restaurants and restaurants, are not interested in restaurant management or cooking, but rather start restaurants such as restaurants, snack bars, and chicken restaurants.

Most self-employed people who start restaurants such as restaurants and snack bars suddenly quit their jobs or change their businesses due to existing business deficits, and most small business owners have difficulty in operating them without time to prepare or gain experience.

In summary, restaurant start-ups are often rushed without preparation for commercial district analysis, location, or menu selection, which leads to management difficulties such as high rents, premium, lack of competition and publicity, and increased operating maintenance costs.

Restaurant start-up loan.

I think many people will recognize business loans no matter what industry they prepare to start a business as well as restaurants.
Self-employed or small and medium-sized business owners often give up before they even start because it is as difficult as picking stars to get loans for start-ups.
Next, I will explain the loan funds provided by the Small and Medium Venture Business Administration.

Loan funding.

If you start a restaurant with fewer than five full-time employees, you can apply for startup management stabilization funds supported by the Small Business Market Promotion Foundation, up to 70 million won, and if you are under the age of 39, you can receive up to 100 million won in youth employment funds.

How to apply for funding.

With credit proxy loan funding, you can receive a confirmation of funding from a local center and receive a credit guarantee through the Korea Credit Guarantee Fund or a local credit guarantee foundation to receive funds from commercial banks.

After visiting the Regional Support Center of the Small Business Market Promotion Foundation, please consult on the application for funds and check the amount of support and availability.
In some cases, business performance by guarantee agency is required to prevent closing business with funding.

Since this fund is not supported at all times, please call the competent center in advance to check it.

The basic loan period is five years, and the loan rate is currently around 3.0% per year due to the three-year installment repayment with a two-year grace period, and the variable rate per quarter (3 months) is applied.
Preparatory documents may require business registration cards, regular employee certification documents, workplace lease contracts, ID cards, educational receipts, and sales performance data.
As such, it is a loan for start-ups, but few places actually lend start-up funds at low-interest rates from the beginning.
If you need to take out additional loans during management after starting a business, you can understand that most of the funds are used.

BUSINESS CHEFS

Experience as a chef vs academic background?

source : pixabay

How much academic background is needed?

This job is not the end of my career when I choose to be a former chef. I hope you think like that.

This is because, like other occupations, you can enter various fields using a basic career background.

So, in Korea, study hard and go to Kyung Hee University for four years.

Two-year employment rate… Compared to Kyung Hee University’s four-year reputation and social perspective…

I hope you prepare it according to Korea.

When I meet and listen to my juniors attending culinary college in Korea,

They thought it was similar except for a few local troops.

It is said that there are many places where people pay for certificates or collect awards and medals at competitions.

Even if you go to a local university, go to the metropolitan city. There should be a lot of jobs.

For your information, only a few countries, including Korea, have officially decided that they are a four-year bachelor’s degree.

Most of the time, two-year system is the basic option, and the scholar leaves it as an option to continue.

The United States, Australia, Canada, Japan, etc. are all the same.

Anyway,

In the case of overseas, education should be interpreted a little differently.

In Korea, do you go to four years with a cut line on your grades, go to in Seoul, or go to a junior college?

We share and share like this.

A culinary college in a foreign country is a technical college, or college.

It’s not a place called 4-year university in order of grades.

College of Technology. In other words, it is an intermediate educational institution that does not reflect grades and allows students to learn technology two years earlier and go out to society.

If you take Australia as an example,

Most Australians attend public culinary colleges called TAFE.

There’s a prestigious university of culinary arts. There is no concept of going in grade order based on the quality of the university.

Each region can be concentrated in schools in a specific area due to facilities or traffic to cities.

And you can go to junior high school only after you finish your second year of high school.

That’s why many international students in Korea are preparing to study abroad after their second year of high school.

Like this… Saying that it is a prestigious university in a culinary university is actually close to the concept of a sign that international students and Asians think of.

The culinary university called CIA in the United States also taught professional skills to help Cham Cheon-yong enter society.

It has become a terrifying place for international students to spend nearly 200 million won on tuition.

If there was a so-called prestigious culinary college,

SKY in Korea. Just as people from Harvard and Oxford MIT are leading industries around the world,

Chinese and Koreans should lead the restaurant field.

Asian people are overflowing in a place called Cooking Famous Station.

And Australians go to public technology schools that cost about 5 to 6 million won a year.

These people are probably lagging behind international students, right? It’s ironic, right?

The educational background referred to in the actual industry and the study abroad industry should now be distinguished by you.

I’ve been saying this all the time.

The history and tradition of school can’t be ignored,

In the field of cooking, career comes first over academic background.

The school has a long history and tradition. The school has to make the ability and route to build a career.

I don’t think a cooking school that proudly offers classes without such competence is more than an educational institution.

For example, let’s say you got a culinary science or master’s degree.

But would I be better at cooking in the kitchen?

Will I be able to get a job better?

Even if I become a chef, would I be better at cutting in the kitchen?

However, the quality of the network you get from school will be different.

The place where you meet passionate people also narrows when you go out of society.

School is a meaningful place in that respect.

Cooks don’t really get together, and they try to get along well.

I don’t know if it’s because we have our own Gonjo… In society, gatherings of chefs do not take place well.

However, schools are different. That’s why the connection we meet at school lasts a long time.

High education in the cooking industry is to set the direction for management, development, and marketing.

In fact, I haven’t seen Westerners who go to a four-year bachelor’s degree to become chefs.

You have to build your career and make money at that time.

Two years of education in the basic profession of cooking is appropriate.

After that, it ends when you learn at the workplace and learn by yourself.

You can’t learn everything at school. It’s a basic curriculum. What would I learn?

So overseas education is the standard for dividing Cook and Chef.

If you learned it professionally, you can be a qualified chef,

Cook is everyone who started without education or started cooking on a cooking program.

When choosing whether to study or not or not,

For those who are studying abroad, if you come out on a two-year program,

You can experience what kind of chef you want to be and what kind of chef you want to be.

I think it’s a good choice to decide whether to continue your studies or not in the future.

In foreign countries, when I joined a large company called a hotel or a restaurant, I only need to come out for two years.

So, I studied cooking in Australia for 2 years and ran on the spot.

There are people who continue their studies. There are things to get a higher position when you get permanent residency,

In fact, it’s also to make various branches about the job while working.

The basic knowledge of meat.

Children especially like meat among foods. If only the meat is prepared as much as possible, it seems easy to make food because you can grill, stir-fry, boil, or boil soup stew. So, the food that is often served on the table is meat side dishes and meat.


Thanks to this, a certain amount of meat, including cow, chicken, and duck, is always frozen in the refrigerator. Since it is important to cook and eat, the timing and amount of meat transferred from the freezer to the refrigerator and room temperature are carefully calculated. Meat side dishes may be a little excessive from the morning, but I think I have to cook meat for dinner or weekends to relax my mother.


Personally, I didn’t start eating pork properly until I was 20. My father didn’t eat pork, and my grandmother’s family rarely served pork dishes. At home, I always ate beef, chicken, and seafood. My father’s favorite were sirloin steak, mother’s chicken leg dishes, salted shrimp, and lobster. These are dishes that I ate a lot in my childhood.

Pork that I started eating late. I remember being surprised by the delicious pork stew, boiled pork, stir-fried spicy pork, and grilled pork belly. In particular, how much pork belly I bought with my friends throughout college, and a lot of my pocket money would have been spent on eating out pork. It’s a relief that pork belly was not as expensive as it is now. The taste of pork that I learned late is scary.


I still like meat, including pigs. When my husband worked in Daegu and Gimcheon, he fell in love with Daegu makchang and talked about makchang whenever we met on weekends, and he was suddenly hooked on lamb skewers and lamb chops one year, so he went to eat them every two weeks. My husband, who doesn’t eat much meat, sometimes didn’t seem to understand me, who showed off my infinite appetite for meat, but he always followed me smoothly and ended up eating nearly twice as much as I did.


Then I can’t eat very much meat anymore. It’s been five years since I’ve had that favorite entrails, and it’s been more than a year since I’ve eaten out pork belly. I can’t remember when I went to eat lamb skewers, which I was enthusiastic about. Strangely, I wasn’t craving or attracted from some point, and the frequency of buying meat outside also decreased significantly.



Sometimes, foods such as pork kimchi stew, pork soup, sundae soup, bossam, stir-fried pork, and duruchigi, which are bought for lunch, have a unique smell of meat. I would have enjoyed it in the past, but these days, it’s hard to put it on my mouth, so I wonder if my taste buds have become a little picky or sensitive. I also wonder. Thanks to this, I have carefully selected restaurants that suit my taste buds and have the efficiency of going to only those places.

Anyway, meat should be served steadily and diligently on our table where children are growing. In the meantime, as a chef, I became sensitive to the smell of meat, so I pay the most attention to that, especially because I have to enjoy it together. I hope that children’s taste in meat will be healthy and healthy and grow into blood and flesh with plenty of protein and good fat.


I kept writing the title like this and kept leaking it. Last weekend evening, her husband’s beef rib steak and grilled lamb legs were excellent. My husband doesn’t eat a lot of meat, but he cooks it really deliciously, and last week, he grilled the meat especially deliciously and carefully seasoned it. Two types of meat, a cow grilled full of crispy and juicy meat. The day I couldn’t envy the world when I ate it with sauce and salad.


A son who had a lot of steak and three legs with an unusually vigorous appetite than usual.

Words that he left with a smile on his face after a meal.


“This is the basic knowledge of meat!”
