Azzap/Aaron: Yes, he is still at Chez Chanur. I have not yet had it in me to "allow him to go succeed elsewhere".  

I wish I had more time for this thread right now, but our Fall quarter started yesterday and this week can only be described as chaos.

Gotta go work on my blog now or it'll never get written.

Quoted from mikeo
here's an idea for a BTD restaurant name

MANGA GIUSTO

You guys want to hear something funny, like, ironic funny, not funny ha ha funny?  

I work at a blood bank (that's not the funny part...settle down or I won't tell you the rest of this) and we have this little cafe here.  Well, at one point the powers that be held a contest for employees to pick a name for the cafe.  The winning name was "The ABO Cafe" and I always think, how funny that I, this mondo BTDer, have this cafe where I work called "The ABO Cafe", yet it is the farthest thing from compliant!

Meanwhile, my entry for a name for the cafe came in SECOND!  AAAAAAAAAAH!  It was:

Transfusion

One of the pups on the selection committee said that they loved it but felt it would "go over the heads" of most of the diners therein.  Transfusion...get it?  It is a double entendre, as in "blood transfusion" (the blood bank theme being reflected in the name thaaang) but also as in "fusion" cuisine?  So, "transfusion" could ALSO be looked at as fusion cuisine that somehow "trans"cends the ordinary and reaches notches unknown!  Transfusion!

But instead we have "ABO cafe", which to me is just a painful reminder of the fact that I cannot eat in there "legally" in BTD terms, as in, "NON-COMPLIANCE MEGA ALERT!", so the name is sort of a cruel joke, ya know, like it should be followed with a pause and then a "...NOT!" or a "...you WISH!"


Rarely, I will deign to go there of an a.m. and get an omlet, only if I have not properly previously consumed breakfast at home and have basically NOTHING in my desk, not even my usual pumpkin seeds or NAP bars or ANYTHING  .  Sometimes, in such cases, I will go without breakfast (bad), but sometimes I will get an omlet, which is no doubt made with "Egg Beaters" and PAM cooking spray...and that is only the stuff I can think of that is wrong with it!

Transfusion...I still think that was a great name.  Dang.

P.S.  AND, a FURTHER entendre (what are we up to, like FOUR, quadruple entendre time in the old town tonight) is that "transfusion" could mean a "transfusion" of energy and revitalization by eating the wonderful food (NOT!) therein.

Sometimes, I amaze myself.

Edna, you plum crack me up! what would we do without you? i like the name ....How about Trans fusion? Okay, maybe not. Connotation to transfatty baddy acids. Alright. More brainstorming necessary...

Susana - a most excellent idea...

i was thinking - I need to make this place doable without too much help. In order to make this thing a reality I may need to do the "healthy food delivered to your door" theme and have BTD menu available.

Then i could have a storefront where people could come by and pick stuff out of the deli case or freezer to take for home or work.

Any suggestions on this front?

Quoted from zola
I just tried baking with brown rice flour with pretty decent success. I used the Banana Walnut Bread recipe (says for Type O but I made it for A's too) and altered it to have 6 bananas and left the sweetener out. Superripe bananas and rice flour are already pretty sweet. I also added a teaspoon of sea salt and used lola's "baking powder mix" = 1 part baking soda, two parts cream of tartar and 2 parts arrowroot.

They are plenty moist & flavorful, toothsome with nice crunchy walnuts. (I toast them first). If the muffins had a little more sweetener  they'd probably brown a bit better.

Does anyone have any recipes they'd like to see on the menu at the BTD restaurant?

I'm looking for a good ginger molasses chew cookie recipe to try out...



OK, I don't know whether our Chef is testing us all to see how observant we are or our chef needs a little more BTD experience before we open the doors.

Banana Walnut bread with 6 bananas for Type A. I don't think so Chef Zola.

Banana = Type A secretor = AVOID !!

I think we need to proof read the menu

What do you have as an alternative for an A sec. ?

Oh, Lordie, Zola  , I think you have your first "problem customer" on your hands *throwing a glance in Tasdad's direction*  .  Just smile and accomodate, we aim to please here at Transfusion!

I can see he has shaken you up, and here it is opening day at your new restaurant!  Let me go out and contend with him, I know how to handle him.  He is a very sweet Tasdad, DEEP down inside, so stand aside and I'll handle this:

"Hello, sir?  I understand there has been some sort of unfortunate misunderstanding here and you were inadvertantly served our A Nonnie Superbanana Supreme Bread instead of our many other varieties that are supercalifragilisticexpialidocious for A secretors?  We are so very sorry, and your entire meal is on the house tonight!  We will immediately replace your bread with our A Secretor Gee-Ya-Gotta-Meet-'Er Apricot Bread!  Plus, might I suggest some of our house signature red wine for Type A's, as it is beneficial for your type?  Did you know that it contains a component which either blocks polyamine synthesis or lowers indican levels?  That's right!  And it also tastes fabulous:  it's a fruity bouquet, sassy yet shy, whimsical yet reserved, complex yet innocent, hearty and robust, yet light, silly yet serious, cheap for us to produce, yet very expensive for our customers--normally, that is!  However, in your case, due to the unfortunate banana bread incident, your wine is ABSOLUTELY FREE!  Please let me or one of your wait team know if there is anything else we can do for you during the course of your meal here and again, we deeply apologize about the entire banana THING.  Enjoy your A secretor beneficial meal!  Oh, look, here comes Jacques with the wine...just leave the entire bottle, Jacques, thank you.  All right, then, sir, your snail appetizer will be out shortly and I do dearly hope that you will enjoy your meal to the fullest!"

Zola,
That's a good idea.  Simple can be better, unless you really have a lot of money at your disposal.  I have a small business.  I have been taught and have learned through experience also, that you will have to carry your enterprise for at least a year.  You may break even the second year, and begin to see a profit the third.  

Of course, this is going to be an individual situation, but a lot of businesses fold in the second year because the owners expected the business to carry itself immediately.  So that's a good reason to start simple, and you can later expand into a full-scale sit-down restaurant as the place becomes well-known, and your cash flow becomes steady.

Another suggestion:
In my opinion, you will have a more steady business if you represent yourself as something like this.......gourmet natural foods, fresh, organic when possible, catering also to blood type meal choices.  Rather than a blood type restaurant preparing natural, fresh, organic foods.  Many, if not most of your customers may not be interested or have even heard of choosing foods by blood type, but will come if the food is beautiful, delicious and healthy.  Then they will be exposed to a new way of choosing foods as an option in your restaurant.

I'm going to be traveling for a few days, so if I don't post often, this  is why.  I'll try and get to a computer a few times over the next week.

Zola, I agree with Victoria about the keep it simple option. We've all had the experience of being in a restaurant which appears to have 20 items on the menus, none of which are fully compliant to any blood group, and can't even be tweaked.
so if you only have four main meals at any one time, each of which is fully compliant at least to secretors (sorry nonnies, your needs may have to be addressed later) this would be better than a big fancy shebang. I run a small home based business, and may never make any real money in it, but fortunately I love it, so it is like having a hobby that pays for itself. If you have another source of income at the same time, it would take the pressure off you. If you are willing to trust us we can all play rogue customers to help you sharpen up your recipes and also give you a thick skin which will definitely be needed in the future. You know it is a dream most of us have entertained in one form or another!  
Best wishes,
Jenny

Edna,

Thanks for your wonderful service and response to my problem. I may have appeared troublesome and for that I apologise. Dining out as you would be aware can be a challenge. Your response in changing my order was prompt and courteous, please send my apologies to the Chef. Maybe I needed to specify my secretor status on the order, I'll be ready in future.

Your offer of a complimentary bottle of red is most gracious, I assume it's Australian ?

I am looking forward to my main course of Seared Tempeh in a Soy & Honey sauce. Served on a bed of wilted greens with Saffron Rice and a side of sauteed vegetables.

BTW, the tip is under the plate.

Well now I guess you all can tell I've never been a "front-of-the-house" person! I'll have to practice my impromptu graciousness.

Thank you all for your wonderful suggestions. And Tas, be sure to send me that tempeh recipe.

Keeping the place sustainable is the goal. Being a flash in the pan would be a great disappointment. I'll have to continue my job working for the man for a few more years while I get my equipment, business plan and scheme fine tuned. Appealing to a larger health-conscious crowd is a good start.

Edna BTW I took that personality test and I got "Idealist". Big surprise

I think btders know what they can eat and if your menu was full of options, like steak, brown rice, steamed kale with ghee, and of course, Do you want yam fries with that? JayneO

How about a ready supply of BT testing kits?

This would be fantastic if you can get it off the ground but I do agree - best to start slowly & get it right than overreach yourself...

Keep working on it - we'll give you all the support we can! I'm sure we'd all frequent  your establishment if we could...

Another thought with the menu planning. You could have all the menu set up in sections by meat, veggie, fruit, bread, bev, dessert, etc. Beside each entre in paratheses the blood type could be noted.

EX:
Meat
Rib Eye steak (O)
Vegetables
Brocolli (O,A,B,AB)
Breads
Fresh baked bread sprouted wheat (O,A, B,AB)
Hope I got this right, this is just an example of making it simple for customers
ordering. I'm ready to eat there now. Please open soon.......

Zola, do you have a name yet?
I loved Edna's "Transfusion" but it may be too esoteric.
What about "Zola's Kitchen"?  (keeping the for- your- type as inside information for the menu)

Isa - what pray tell is a VEGA-tester? You must catch me up.

Zola's Kitchen has a nice ring to it. How about you all think of a few names NOT to call it? This could be fun...I can think of a few...

And the menu reads...We apologize for not being able to serve you transfatty acids, gums, synthetic food dyes, pesticides, and steroids...
