Food and its Importance in the Business World 

Whether it’s the world of entertainment, or a fast-paced industry giant, the right kind of food plays an important role in ensuring everyone is working to the best of their ability. Some may be surprised by such a bold claim, but consider how many roles would go unfulfilled simply by not eating properly. When you look at things in this context, it reinforces just how important the right kind of food really is. 

Both the world of entertainment and the world of business can have demands from their employees. Both sectors are a buzz of activity, so it can be very difficult to set time aside to refuel. However, those who are unable to refuel accordingly, could find that the end result they were aiming for, is not the best it could have been. As such, it is vital that both businesses and film crews have access to reliable catering in West London. 

Movie and television sets, for example, can require a lot from actors and the crew. Numerous shoots have to be taken on occasions, and the elements can throw more than a few curveballs to a production team. Those who are hungry are more likely to be tired and therefore concentrating less. This can cause ramifications to the whole production, meaning that productivity tends to slow down.  

The same can apply to the business world, those who have targets to meet and investors to impress may think nothing of missing lunch. But again, going into a meeting or sales pitch not properly nourished means that you won’t be at the top of your game. 

What Is The Answer? 

The answer is quite simply to eat properly, but this can be easier said than done, especially when tasks are mounting on our desks and deadlines are merely peeking round the corner. 

Having deadlines and quotas can often mean we take time from other important tasks, and eating is probably the most important task you can undertake in the day. Put simply, some of us don’t have time to visit the local eatery and buy something to eat. Fortunately, there is an alternative solution. 

Many movie and television production companies liaise with catering companies to have wholesome food delivered, and it works very well for all those concerned. Although some businesses converse with catering companies for food for meetings, some may not consider that breakfast and lunch can be delivered with relative ease. 

Dazy Kitchen in London is one such establishment that specialises in event catering in West London, meaning a selection of hot wholesome food is only a phone call away. This service can be implemented by any business, meaning that those important meetings and deadlines don’t have to push lunch to the bottom of the agenda, all thanks the unique approach Dazy Kitchen take when supply event catering in Shepherds Bush. 

Organic and free-range produce are used to create a mixture of different meals, including hot sandwiches and gourmet comfort food with a modern twist. Whatever your tastes, you’re sure to see something on the menu that is not only offers good value for money, but is freshly made using the latest fresh ingredients. 

Weird Food From Around the World

When it comes to food, it can be a little too easy to become stuck in our ways. Fast food can take over and before we know it, we’re not even sure as to what type of food excites us anymore. A good way to reboot this kind of thinking is to introduce ourselves to new food. This can be done via a number of different eateries that will all specialise in different types of food. 

There is food that can be from the best pizza places in West London or your favourite dish from a gourmet café. The world can offer all sorts of surreal food that isn’t available from your local gourmet café for a number of reasons, but remains an ideal conversation piece among fans of food. 

Although there are a great number of dishes available locally from your local gourmet cafe, it may take travelling further afield to truly allow our senses to be tested. Below are some of the weirdest dishes available around the world. While they won't be to everyone’s tastes, they can make for a great bucket list 

Century Eggs, China 

The name of this dish can be a little misleading, as the eggs used are far from one hundred years old. But they are stored for a number of months to turn the white brown and the yolk dark green. 

Those who like their eggs fried, scrambled or poached and consumed in their local gourmet café dmay struggle with the idea behind century eggs, but they are still consumed daily by millions of China’s residents. 

Fugu, Japan 

While any food can be dangerous if it’s not prepared in the correct way, there is a pufferfish in Japan that can kill someone if it’s not prepared correctly. 

While Fugu remains popular, it has actually taken the life of 20 people since its introduction in 2000. 

Fried Spiders, Cambodia 

If you thought deep-fried Mars bars were weird, then nothing will prepare you for one of Cambodia’s delicacies. 

The tarantulas are served in the Phnom Penh restaurant, which claims over 200 diners enjoy the unique dish each week. 

Jellied Moose Nose, Canada 

While the nose probably isn’t the most attractive cut, this doesn’t mean that there aren’t those who will experiment anyway. 

Jellied Moose Nose is popular among Canadians and it sees the moose nose boiled up with onions and spices, before boiling again and slicing. The nose is then added to a broth, which eventually jellifies. 

While not available in any local gourmet café, it certainly makes for an interesting alternative for those who ever venture to Canada. 

Haggis, Scotland 

While probably more accepted than other dishes on the list, it’s still worth noting how haggis is prepared. A sheep’s heart is partnered with its liver and lungs as the foundations of the dish. Oatmeal, suet and onions are added and will then be cooked within the sheep’s heart. 

Haggis is a seen as a more acceptable dish. Probably because it’s prepared so close to home. While it may not be available in every gourmet café within the United Kingdom, it remains a firm favourite with the Scottish. 

Wasp Crackers, Japan 

As you’ve no doubt picked up from the title, this dish is a cracker that’s filled with wasps. Emulating your granular chocolate chip cookie, the wasp cracker substitutes the cocoa favourite with something with a little more sting. 

As expected, the taste sensation can be a little sharp, and will not be attractive to those who yearn for the best pizza in West London, but again remains a dish design purely to test boundaries.  

Witchetty Grub, Australia 

While any kind of grub can be frowned upon, the Witchetty grub has been a firm favourite among Australians. 

Usually enjoyed by those in the outback, this tasty morsel can be enjoyed raw, giving the consumer an almond-like taste, or cooked, where the consistency resembles that of roast chicken. 

These are only a handful of the weird and wonderful dishes the world has to offer. Some may be more appealing than others, by there’s no accounting for taste, especially in the world of food. 

It’s always worth remembering that although the United Kingdom may not have as many daring dishes as its foreign counterpart, it does have outlets that can offer the best pizza in West London.

The Scores on the Doors: The Importance of Food Hygiene Ratings 

Dazy Kitchen - Food Hygiene

Eating out is part of our lifestyle, and we do so for a number of reasons. It could be to celebrate a special occasions, or just to treat the children. Whatever the reason, those eating out want to know their food they are consuming is safe, as well as delicious. 

Fortunately, businesses that specialise in food are able to show their patrons that its food is not only prepared within a healthy environment, but it is also handled in the correct way. This is due to the ‘Food Hygiene Rating,’ which provides consumers with a user-friendly score based on the standards and compliance of that particular food premises. 

Many restaurants and food outlets work hard to ensure that they are providing the best services possible to the customers. For example, Dazy Kitchen itself has been awarded a 5, this means that as well as being one the nicest restaurants in Shepherds Bush, it is also able to store and prepare food without any concern to those who eat at Dazy Kitchen, as a score of 5 is the maximum a business can be awarded. 

Why Is the Food Hygiene Rating Scheme Important?  

The Food Standards Agency deployed the food hygiene rating to assist consumers in making an informed choice when it comes to choosing somewhere to eat. While there are many restaurants, cafes and fast food outlets that prepare their food in a safe manner, there are those who simply don’t follow the same precautions. Without food hygiene ratings, the consumer is left blind when it comes to making an informed choice. 

The scheme also allows businesses to show how hard they are working to ensure that their food handling meets the necessary compliance. This again can instil confidence to those who like dining out. 

How Is It Determined Which Eatery Gets What Score? 

Very few businesses are identical, and as such will operate in a different way. The same can be said for how a restaurant is reviewed in relation to a food hygiene rating. There are a number of factors to take into consideration when a review is held. These can range from how food is prepared, down to the general condition of the property itself. Below is a synopsis of what each rating represents. 

Food Hygiene Rating 5: Very Good

Food Hygiene Rating 4: Good

Food Hygiene Rating 3: Generally Satisfactory 

Food Hygiene Rating 2: Improvement Necessary

Food Hygiene Rating 1: Major Improvement Necessary 

Food Hygiene Rating 0: Urgent Improvement Necessary 

As you can see, a score of between 3 and 5 is generally what would be expected to be deemed satisfactory. But what is the difference between good and very good. A score of 5 means that the eatery has gone above and beyond to ensure that it is storing products correctly, keeping the premises clean and best of all, making the customers the focus of their business. While it may cost a little more to maintain such high standards, it’s definitely worth it in the long run. Dazy Kitchen also believe this, and strive to be one of the nicest restaurants in Shepherds Bush.
