Hey Vera- Sodhexo recipe question

The soups our cafeteria makes run from truly awful to really good.

Last Friday they put out an awesome turkey and white bean chili.

I want the recipe. Does Sodhexo standardize these, or do the individual exec chefs have some discretion about what to put out for the folks?

Technically, the cooks are supposed to follow recipes that are standardized throughout the company/world. Having said that, if I give my ecuadorian cook a directive to make black bean soup, and even go so far as to hand him the recipe, I know he's going to make black bean soup the way his mother made it.

When I go in tomorrow, I'll check the files to see if there is a recipe for turkey and white bean chili. If we have it, it's yours.

By the way, thanks for the heads up, I might not have seen this!

There are quite a few recipes for turkey chili, and a few for white bean chili..but I didn't see one for turkey and white bean chili. I did see one for turkey and pinto bean chili, and one for turkey and black bean chili. I'm convinced you can tell the difference between a white bean and a black bean...but was there any chance the chef used pinto beans??

I've been known to substitute beans all the time if I don't have something on the shelf that the recipe calls for.

Do you want the recipe for the two turkey and bean chilis?

Thanks for taking the time to look it up for me. I'll take both recipes if it's no trouble.

I'm pretty sure it was white beans in the chili, and yes, I call tell the diff

Vera, I'd love the recipes, too, if it's not too much trouble. You can email them to me.

Hey you two...or three, if Buckytom is interested.

I printed the recipes, but I cannot really do a copy and paste..it would be easire to fax them. Do either of you have a fax number I could use??

hehehe, I feel so sneaky...

I think we have some kind of fax thingy that's connected to our email at work. I will ask the IT guy next week.

No fax machine at home, alas.

Sorry to put you to all this trouble..........

Windows often has a fax function as part of its package. You could be able to receive a fax on your ccomputer and print it on your printer.
