Risk Management: Loss Prevention in the Restaurant Industry

The Risk Management of Making and Enjoying Fresh Beignets

Beignets were first introduced to the city of New Orleans by the French-Creole colonists in the 18th century. The concept is simple – dough is fried then covered with mounds of powdered sugar – but the result is extraordinary. When served hot, they are absolute perfection!

In this session, we will learn how to make beignets, watch firsthand and maybe even help as a Hilton New Orleans chef makes beignets and, best of all, we will gobble them up after the demonstration! But, in our profession, we know that there is a risk management side to this type of activity. What do restaurants need to keep in mind as they drop gooey balls of dough into burning hot oil? Come to this session and find out!
