  2. 2. According to the Oxford Dictionary, hospitality means “the reception and entertainment of guests, visitors or strangers with liberality and good will”. The word hospitality is derived from hospice (nursing home), a medieval “house of rest” for travelers and pilgrims. Hospitality then includes hotels and restaurants. 2
  3. 3. Hospitality may be defined as meeting the needs of guests in a variety of establishments. The hospitality Industry offers employment to people of differing personalities, background and skills through a wide diversity of type of outlets serving food and beverages. Sunil kumar 3

  11. 11. However since 1993,Restaurants and Institutions (USA) no longer divided the industry into these categories because menu item and facility ambience choices between categories are almost nonexistent overseas. In Malaysia, there are still obvious differences between the two categories of foodservice. The term commercial and noncommercial are still used to indicate the degree of choice a customer has in selecting where to eat. 11
  12. 12.  The foodservice industry can be classified into 2 major groups: 1. COMMERCIAL FOODSERVICES INSTITUTIONAL FOODSERVICE 2. 12

  21. 21.  Three (3) basic commercial food service operations are: 1. Independents Chain Restaurants Franchises 2. 3. 21
  22. 22. Owned by an owner or owners who have one or more properties that have no chain relationship. Menus may not be identical among properties. Food purchase specifications may differ, operating procedures are varied, etc. 22
  23. 23. Part of a multi-unit organization Often share the same menu Purchase supplies and equipment cooperatively. Follow operating procedures that have been standardized for every restaurant in the chain May be owned by a parent company, a franchise company or by a private owner or owners Some chains are operated by a management company. 23
  24. 24. Large chains can readily acquire cash, credit and long- term leases on land and buildings Ability to experiment with different menus, themes, designs and operating procedures Can afford staff specialists who are experts in finance, construction, operations and recipe development Able to generate internal financial information that can be used as a basis of comparison among properties 24
  25. 25. Difficult to keep up with changing markets and economic conditions. Involve a large amount of paperwork, rules and procedures that can slow them down. Top management may lose motivation to keep up and what is best for the company might not always receive the highest priority. 25
  26. 26. A special category of chain operations  The franchisee (the owner of the franchise property) pay fees to: a) Use the name b) Building design c) Business methods of the franchiser (the franchise company)  The franchisee must agree to maintain the franchisor’s business and quality standards.  26
  27. 27.  To initial franchise fees, the franchisee may be required to pay: 1. Royalty fees assessed on the basis of a specified percentage of sales or other factors Advertising costs, sign rental fees and other costs such as stationary and food products. 2. 27
  28. 28.  Start-up assistance  Company-sponsored training programs for management staff and training resource materials for employees  National contributions toward local advertising campaigns 28
  29. 29. Higher sales because: a) more extensive advertising. b) greater name recognition of the franchise chain. c) the consistency of product and services among chain properties (guest know what to expect). Lower food costs due to volume purchasing by the chain Tested operating procedures which specify how things should be done. 29
  30. 30. The contract is generally very restrictive  The franchisee has little choice about: a) The style of operation b) The product served c) Services offered d) Methods of operation  The menu might be set along with the décor, required furnishings and production equipment.  30
  31. 31. Since the franchise agreement is drawn up by the franchiser, the document generally favors the franchiser The agreement may leave little to negotiate This causes problems if there are disagreements between the two parties. 31
  32. 32. Traditionally, a large percentage of institutional food service operations have focused on nutrition and other non-economic factors. Today, as pressures for cost containment accompany reduced income, there is a need to manage institutional food service operations as professional businesses. Sometimes this is done by the institutions themselves. Other institutions choose management companies to help them minimize costs. 32
  33. 33. ADVANTAGES: Large nationwide management companies have greater resources to solves specific problems. Can save money for institutions through effective negotiations with suppliers. Can often operate institutional food service programs at a lower cost than the institutions can. Institution administrators, trained in areas other than food service operations, can delegate food service responsibilities to professional food service managers. 33
  34. 34. Too much control in matters that affect the public image of the institution, long range operating plans and other important issues. Some people may dislike having a profit-making business involved in the operation of a health care, educational or other institutional food service program There may be concerns that a management company will decrease food and beverage quality. 34
  35. 35. The institutional operation may depend too much on the management company. What happens if the management company discontinues the contract? How long will it take discontinues the contract? How long will it take to implement a self-oriented program or find another management company? Although management companies are usually hired to reduce operating costs, higher operating costs are also possible when management companies are used. 35

  117. 117. Sufficient data to aid decision-making. 2. Accurate and up-to-date consumers profiles, so that able to meet the requirements of the consumer. 3. Competitive analysis, so that an organization can in part measure its own performance  Research should always be ongoing and not just of an occasional nature. 1. 117
  118. 118.  1. 2. 3. The type of food and drink that people choose to consume away from home depends on a number of factors which are of particular concern to customers. They include: The choice of food and drink available: whether the menu is limited or extensive, the operation revolves around one particular product or varied choice. The quality of the product offered: fresh or convenience foods. The quantity of the product offered: portion sizes. 118

The food and drink are served at correct temperatures. The presentation of the food and drink enhances the product offered. The price and perceived value for money The quality of the total meal experience matches or even enhances the expectations of the guests. 119
  120. 120.  1. 2. 3. 4. The menu choice offered by a restaurant is dependent on: The price the customer is willing to pay. The amount of time available for meal experience. The level of the market in which the restaurant is situated and consequently. The types of customer likely to frequent that type of operation. 120
  121. 121. 1. 2. 3. 4. The production and service facilities available. The skills of the staff. Availability of commodities. Potential profitability of the menu. 121
  122. 122. The higher the cost of the meal to the customer, the more service the customer expects to receive. The actual service of the food and beverages to the customer may be described as the ‘direct’ service. Part of the restaurant’s total service is also composed of ‘indirect’ services for example provision of cloakroom facilities, availability of a telephone for customer use and so on. 122
  123. 123.  Customers will frequent a restaurant not only because of its food and service but also because they feel the price they are paying represents value for money. ATMOSPHERE AND MOOD 1. Often described as an intangible ‘feel’ inside a restaurant. 2. Include the décor and interior design of the restaurant 3. The table and seating arrangements 123
  124. 124. The service accompaniments 5. The dress and attitude of the staff 6. The tempo of service 7. The age, the dress and sex of the other customers 8. The sound levels in the restaurant 9. The temperature of the restaurant, bars and cloakrooms 10. Overall cleanliness of the environment 11. The professionalism of the staff. 4. 124

Lighting 5. Air conditioning and so on  The color scheme should blend and balance and be enhanced by lighting arrangement, table and chairs.  125
  126. 126. Arriving at a restaurant for a meal bring a series of expectations regarding that restaurant: 1. The type of service they will receive 2. The price they will pay 3. The expected atmosphere and mood of the restaurant and so on.  A customer has different needs and expectations on different meal occasions and similarly at different times of the day.  126
  127. 127. ‘Services which are not appropriately located may not be performed at all.’ Customers arriving by car will expect adequate car parking facilities. If customers have to travel by public transport, the operation should be well served by buses, trains or taxis. 127
  128. 128. Staff employed by restaurant operation should complement the meal experience of the customers.  They are able to do this in variety of ways: a) Their social skills. b) Their age and sex. c) Their uniform. d) The tempo of their service and so on.  128
  129. 129. The production of the right product. The meal experience begins with basic marketing questions of who are our customers and what do they want. Caterers are able to determine their position in their market and offer the right product at the right price for the identified market segments. 129
  130. 130.  1. 2. 3. 4. General trends in eating out include the following: An increase in interest in healthy eating by the general public. An increase in awareness of hygiene and cleanliness. An increase in the demand for vegetarian foods, particularly by young people. A decline in the general demand for red meats with an increase in demand for white meats, fish and pasta. 130

  132. 132. STYLE / TYPES OF SERVICE 132
  133. 133. Introduction There are many different approaches to serving food. For example: 1. TABLE SERVICE 2. BUFFET SERVICE 3. CAFETERIA SERVICE 4. OTHER TYPES OF SERVICE  An operation should use a service style or a combination of service styles that best satisfies its guests’ wants and needs.  133
  134. 134. Traditional table service provides service for guests who are seated at tables.  There are four(4) common styles of table service: A. AMERICAN SERVICE B. ENGLISH SERVICE C. FRENCH SERVICE D. RUSSIAN SERVICE  134
  135. 135. Simplified version of Russian service. Food is prepared and dished on to individual plate in the kitchen, carried into the dining room and served to guests. More popular because it is quicker and guests receive the food while it’s still hot and beautifully presented. The food is presented on the right side of the guests and plates are cleared on the left side of the guests Can be simple and casual or complex and elegant. 135
  136. 136. Much like service at home. Quantities of foods are placed in bowls or on platters to be passed around the table. The food is brought to the table by servers who present the food to the guests. The guests then pass the food around the table, helping themselves to the amount they desire. This types of service is often used in homes during holidays such as Thanksgiving and Christmas. 136
  137. 137. Many food items are partly or completely prepared at tableside. The food is attractively arranged on platter and presented to guests after which the preparation of the food is completed on a gueridon table beside the guest’s seats. “Gueridon” means a trolley (or side table) used for the service or preparation of foods in the dining environments. This is the most expensive and impressive form of service and it requires experienced employees. 137
  138. 138.  Employs three servers working together to serve 1.    the meal and may include a captain to seat guests and wine steward to serve wine. Chef de Rang ( Station server) In charge of service for approximately four tables Greet guests, describe and take menu orders Supervises service and completes the preparation of some dishes on the gueridon and carves, slices or de-bones dishes for guest. 138
  139. 139. 2.  3.    Demi Chef de Rang ( Assistant Station server) Assists the Chef de Rang, takes beverage orders and serves food. Commis de Rang ( Food server in training) Assist the Demi de Rang with serving water, bread and butter, serving and cleaning of plates, taking orders to the kitchen and bringing the food to the restaurant. Advantages: guests receive a great deal of attention and the service is extremely elegant. Disadvantages: -fewer guests may be served, -more space is necessary for service. -many highly professional servers are required. -service is time-consuming. 139
  140. 140. Food is cooked in the kitchen, cut, placed onto a serving dish and beautifully garnished.  To serve, the server places a heated plate before each guest from the right side, going around the table clockwise.  The dish then is presented to the guests and served individually by lifting the food onto guest’s plate with serving spoon and fork.  140
  141. 141. Advantages: Only one server is needed and that this service is as elegant as French service, faster and less expensive. Disadvantages: Large investment in silverware and the number of platters needed. The last guest served at the table must be served from the less well displayed food remaining. 141
  142. 142. Guests select their meal from an attractive arrangement of food on long tables. The guest either helps themselves or is served by services staff behind the buffet tables. Plates, flatware and other necessary items are conveniently located. Sometimes used for banquets in combination with limited table service usually for beverages. 142
  143. 143. Guests advance through serving lines, selecting their food items as they go and pay for their meals at the end of the counter. The most expensive or hardest-to-serve food items are usually portioned by service staff. However, cafeteria service is similar to buffet service, guest help themselves to items on display. 143
  144. 144. Fast-food service, deli service, counter service, banquet service and tray service are among the others. 1. Fast-food service  Offer seating as well as drive-through and takeout services  Service is limited to taking the guests’ orders and giving the food to the guests on trays or in carry-out sacks or cartons. 2. Deli service  Take-out service may offer limited seating at tables or at counter.  144
  145. 145. 3.  4.     Counter service Often found in bars, lounges, snack shops and coffee shops. Banquet service Can accommodate any size group ranging from a dozen to an unlimited number of guests. The menu, number of guests and time of service are predetermined and well organized in advance. The menu can be limited and served quickly or may consist of several courses, elaborately presented and served. Water and coffee are replenished periodically. 145
  146. 146. Tray service:  Associated with institutional food service.  Meal are plated, put on trays, kept hot or cold in special transport carts ad moved from preparation/plating areas to service areas as needed. 5. 146
  147. 147. Standard Operating Procedure  Each operation should set its own policies and standard operating procedures.  They detail exactly what must be done and how it should be done  Managers cannot rely on employee’s common sense to do the right thing at the right time.  Performance standards that are measurable and observable should be tied to each operating procedure.  Performance standards help managers and employees determine whether procedures are being performed correctly. 147
  148. 148. The old saying “the guest is always right” still applies and that is the attitude that servers should convey. What is needed to improve service in many operations is not expensive equipment or an elaborate atmosphere but a genuine concern for guests and the use of consistent service procedures. Training service staff to properly welcome and serve guests is one of the chief responsibilities of dining room or food and beverage managers. 148
  149. 149. Training service staff to properly welcome and serve guests is one of the chief responsibilities of dining room or food and beverage managers. Service staff must be polite, properly groomed and have a genuine interest in helping guests enjoy the dining experience. 149

  157. 157. BEVERAGE EQUIPMENT AND SERVICE KNOWLEDGE 157
  158. 158. INTRODUCTION  Beverages are as important as the food in the dining experience.  They should therefore be given as careful attention as the food when they are being prepared and served. Beverage Equipment Identification  The service of beverages requires a wide range of equipment.  The types of equipment used will vary depending on: a) The tasks to be performed. b) The type of establishment. 158
  159. 159.  When selecting glassware, management will a. b. c. d. e. f. take various factors into account such as: Size Shape Ease of handling and washing Durability Price Appropriate to the style of the establishment and its menu. 159
  160. 160. Many specialist devices and types of equipment have produced over the years to: a. help the waiter with the extraction of corks. b. the carrying of drink. c. cooling of beverages.  The ‘waiter’s friend’ is the recognized device used by waiters to extract corks.  160
  161. 161. The exact procedures to be adopted for the service of beverages will depend on the 1. Type of establishment 2. The styles of service offered 3. The availability of service station areas.  Pre-service duties will include: a. Cleaning and polishing glassware b. Service station mise-en-place c. Preparation of ice buckets d. Handling and placing of equipment.  161
  162. 162. Even when glassware are hygienically washed and sterilized by the high temperature of washing cycle in commercial dishwasher, it is still necessary to polish all glassware by hand before it is placed on the table or used to serve drinks. A lint-free polishing cloth should be used to polish glasses and make sure they are spotlessly clear. 162
  163. 163.  Efficient service requires careful prior preparation of the service equipment.  In some establishments this is done on a special piece of furniture in the dining room known as the drink waiter’s station.  Supplies and equipment required for beverage service are: - Glassware - Ashtrays - Drink trays - Service clothes - Wine lists - Docket books - Table-napkins - Wine coolers - Straws - Ice buckets - Toothpicks - Matches 163
  164. 164.  Ice buckets are used to keep wine and sparkling   a. b.   wines cool in more formal and usually more expensive restaurants. Simple insulated wine coolers sometimes placed on the table are used in less formal establishments. Ice buckets, when required for use should be half filled with: Mixture of crushed ice (two-thirds) Cold water (one-third) The water allows the bottle to sink into the ice instead of balancing on top of it. The bucket may be placed in a tripod stand. 164
  165. 165.  Divide the various different types of beverage into   1. 2. 3. 4. 5. separate lists. This will helps guests to find and select the beverages they require more speedily. Possible lists may include: Cocktail list Drink list (includes aperitifs, beers, spirits and non-alcoholic drinks) Wine list After-dinner drinks list (liqueurs, ports, brandies) Liqueur coffee list 165
  166. 166.  Wine lists are usually divided into wines of different types, for example: 1. White table wines Red table wines Champagne and sparkling wines Dessert wines 2. 3. 4. 166
  167. 167. All glassware should be handled by the stem or base of the glass. When glasses are being moved in the presence of guests, they should always be carried on a beverage tray. Before the guests’ arrival, when the tables are being laid, several glasses may be held upside down in one hand with their stems between one’s fingers. 167
  168. 168. If a single glass is being laid at a dining table, it should be placed 2.5cm above the main knife. If more than one glass is placed on the table, the glasses are positioned in a line at an angle of 45 in the order in which they will be required. 168
  169. 169. The food waiter and the wine waiter must communicate if they are to provide a co-coordinated sequential service. The sequence of service requires both food and beverages to be served at the appropriate times throughout the meal without interfering with each other. 169
  170. 170. Before the menu is presented, guests are offered an aperitif (pre-dinner drink) to stimulate the appetite. Because the wines are selected to complement the food chosen, the wine list is usually presented after the food order has been taken. 170
  171. 171. The wine selected to accompany each course is served just prior to the food in that course. It is usual to serve: a. White wines before red b. Dry wines before sweet c. Young wines before old  What wines are chosen and in what order is up to the guest, the ‘right’ wine is what the guest wants.  171
  172. 172. Remind guests that dessert wines are available when the desserts are being ordered. Dessert wines are sweet and complement sweet dishes. Orders for after-dinner alcoholic beverages are taken before coffee is served. This allows the coffee and other after-dinner drinks such as port, cognac or liqueurs to be served at the same time. 172
  173. 173. Beverage may be served on their own (in bar or lounge service) or their service may be carefully coordinated with the service of the food so that the beverages complement the food enhancing the guests' enjoyment of both. The style of beverage service offered will depend on the character of the establishment and the type of beverages being served. Venues offering beverage service include public houses and bars, lounges, restaurants and function facilities. 173
  174. 174. When selling beverages: Do not dictate your personal preferences Offer a diversity of recommendations so that guests are prompted to choose what they personally prefer. Suggest beverages that complement the occasion but do not convey any sense of disapproval if something ‘unsuitable’ is chosen. Guest have the right to drink whatever they choose and have come to enjoy themselves, not to be ‘corrected’. Your job is to make them feel comfortable and relaxed. 174
  175. 175. APERITIF Pre-dinner drink taken to stimulate the appetite Dry to taste because dry beverages stimulate the appetite, while sweet drinks tend to dull the appetite. Some guests may prefer to drink a sweet drink such as a sweet sherry before a meal as aperitif. 175
  176. 176.  Popular aperitifs include: 1. Dry champagne Pre-dinner cocktails (acidic or dry rather than creamy) Dry sherry Dry (‘French’) vermouth A proprietary aperitif ( Campari, Fernet Branca, Dubonnet) 2. 3. 4. 5. 176
  177. 177. The term ‘wine’ indicates a type of beverage made from fermented fruit. Wine may be made from a variety of fruits but wine as we generally know it is made from fermented juice of grapes. When another fruit is used to produce the wine, the name of the fruit used included on the label, for example ‘strawberry wine’. 177
  178. 178. Red wine is made from ‘black’ (purple) grapes. White wine is made from ‘white’ (green) grapes. Rose wine which is pink (rose) is made from black grapes but the skins of the grapes are removed early in the process of fermentation. Red wines should be served at ‘room temperature’ (about 18 C) White wines should be served mildly chilled (about 6 C). 178
  179. 179.  Many wines, especially European wines are  i. ii.  a. b. described according to the region where the grapes are grown. Example: France: famous wine regions are Burgundy, Bordeaux an Beaujolais German: Rhine and Mosel wines Wine from outside Europe is often described by: The variety of the grape rather than the region of origin Grape variety has a strong influence on the character of the wine. 179
  180. 180. a) b) c) d) e) f) g) Chardonnay- full-flavored, dry Riesling- delicate, crisp, fruit-flavoured Traminer- fruity, spicy Cabarnet sauvigon- dry Pinot noir- light, soft Gamay- fruity, light Shiraz- robust 180
  181. 181.  1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. The better the quality of the wine the more detailed the information on the labels is. Labels on ordinary table wines contain: The name of the region Those on superior wines Name of the particular vineyard where the wine was produced The precise area where the grapes may be grown Types of vines that can be used The levels of alcohol and sugar in the finished wine By its vintage (in year when the weather conditions are especially favorable to grape growing). The wines produce in these years are known as vintage wines. 181
  182. 182. Rich and sweet. Designed to be consumed with sweet food items. FORTIFIED WINES A wine strengthened with the addition of spirit. The spirit also preserves the wine for longer periods after the bottle is opened. Fortified wines include Sherry, Vermouth, Muscat and Port. 182
  183. 183. Sparkling wines get their sparkle from carbon dioxide Carbon dioxide is produced naturally in the process of fermentation and can be retained to produce a sparkling wine. Champagne is made by a complex process called the methode champenoise or champagne method. The style of sparklin wine include: Brut – dry Sec – medium dry Demi-sec – medium sweet Doux - sweet 183
  184. 184. Champagne or sparkling wine complement most foods. Consume red wine with red meat and white wine with white meat. If unsure, often a rose wine will suffice. Consume white wine before red wine. Consume dry wine before sweet wine Commence with a grape aperitif (wine-based) rather than a grain aperitif (spirit-based) prior to the meal, since the latter can spoil or dull the palate. Make sure your wine is at the correct temperature. 184
  185. 185. The process central to vinification is fermentation, the conversion of sugar to alcohol. VINE SPECIES Grown that produces grapes suitable for wine production and stocks the vineyards of the world is named Vitis vinifere. The same vine variety, grown in different regions and processed in different ways, will produce wines of differing characteristics. Example are: Black: Carbernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Gamay. White: Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Riesling. 185
  186. 186. STILL WINE  This is the largest category.  The alcoholic strength may be between 9% and 15% by volume. The wine may be: a. Red:  Being fermented in contact with grape skins from which the wine gets its colour.  Normally dry wines. 186
  187. 187. b.   c.     White: Produced from white grapes Normally dry to very sweet. Rose (made in 3 ways) From red grapes fermented on the skins for up to 48 hours. Mixing red and white wines together. By pressing grapes so that colour is extracted. May be dry or semi-sweet. 187
  188. 188. The most famous is Champagne. This is made by the methode champenoise (secondary fermentation in the bottle) in an area of north-eastern France. They may vary from brut (very dry), sec (medium dry), demi-sec (medium sweet) to doux (sweet). Semi-sparkling wines are known by the term petillant. 188
  189. 189. The sugar contents is indicated on the label: Extra brut very dry Brut very dry Extra-sec dry Sec slightly sweet Demi-sec sweetish up to 6g less than 15g 12 to 20g 17 to 35g 35 to 50g 189
  190. 190. Such as Sherry, Port and Madeira have been strengthened by the addition of alcohol usually a grape spirit. Their alcoholic strength may be between 15% and 22% by volume. Example: Sherry (Spain) 15-18% Port (Portugal) 18-22% Madeira (Portuguese island of Madeira) 18% Marsala (Marsala in Sicily) 18% 190
  191. 191. The information always includes: 1. The country where the wine was made. 2. Alcoholic strength in percentage by volume (% vol). 3. Contents in litres, cl or ml. 4. Name and address or trademark of supplier.  It may also include: a. The year the grapes were harvested, called the vintage. b. The region where the wine was made. c. The quality category of the wine. d. Details of bottler. 191
  192. 192. Tasting may be said to be an analysis of wine by the senses. Sight: indicating the clarity and colour of the wine. Smell: determines the bouquet of a wine by means of a vigorous swirling in the glass. Taste: allows detection of the aroma in the mouth. The tasting of wines includes looking at, smelling and tasting the wine. 192
