Re: Ketchup? 2014/08/27 09:51:28 (permalink)
I was eating French fries from a food cart in the Netherlands, with a healthy dose of mayo, when I noticed a sign offering Kinder Saus. I asked the operator what this was and he replied "it's ketchup, we call it kinder saus because it's for people who have the palates of children"

Not to put too fine a point on it 2014/08/29 15:09:21 (permalink)
but there are guys that will throw you off the floor just for even asking. I have not figured this out yet but even to say the word Ketchup or catsup will literally fly into a rage. NO KETCHUP! And it's a culinary thing, it hasa nothing to do with John Kerry and Heinz 57. The closest thing I can think is ketchup is so sweet and cloying that it covers the taste of the food.
 
So instad they use gravy. There are still parts of the Northeast and they like white gravy on their fries. And there are just a few places that serve potato fries with mayonaise. How that makes sense is a mystery to me. Mayo oxideses almost intantly with heat.
 
Most of our mentors default to "give the customer what they want and smile" and that is what we try to do with OzDogs but to do this we rely on the little packets.
 
Shameful I know. Except for the South Carolina Slaw Dogs and you can't do slaw without mayo.

I guess what people here are saying that anybody who likes ketchup is either stupid or unfit for their station?

I start to think that a lot of people love to hate ketchup but down inside don't really care. Or like to quarrel about really petty issues. I am smart and fit for my station. I always have a bottle of ketchup in the fridge and apply it to what I want when I want. And that is that. NO APOLOGIES. The same goes for the rest of what I eat and drink. Gee whiz, talk about personal decisions which are no one else' concern.

I don't believe anyone is saying that. I have catsup in my refrigerator. I use it on corned beef hash and in cocktail sauce for shrimp. I probably use it for some other things, although I can't think of any at this moment.

When living in Amsterdam, there was a condiment called "Ketjap" which was kind of in the hoisin sauce family. I recall once, when I was first examining the Settlement Cook Book in the 1960's, being surprised that some recipes called for ketchup. That is, until I saw that they were referring to home-made ketchup, for which they also had a recipe.

Meatloaf with ketchup, fried chicken livers with ketchup, home fried potatoes with ketchup, Corned beef hash with ketchup, Corned beef and cabbage with ketchup, Liver bacon and onion sandwiches on rye with ketchup. I'm coming out of the closet, I like ketchup. All the restaurants that like to say "We don't serve ketchup here" My family is happy to say "We'll never eat here". Service and customer service, is all about taking care of your guests needs and wants. By refusing something so simple to your customer isn't taking care of their needs. The only thing it does is take care of the restaurants wants. Thats not what this business is all about...........I build my business on customer service not arrogance.
