Olive Garden Thrives On ‘Family Concept’

If there is something that sets Olive Garden apart from its competitors, in a word, it is what we call “the family concept.” This is the core value of Olive Garden; to connect with and please its devoted fans, first and foremost, but also to please its customers and the larger community of dinner goers.

I am sure that upon pouring through the menu, you will see many similarities to what you see in restaurants today: an extensive menu of appetizers, entrees, and desserts, but as well as the specialties of Olive Garden’s menu, such as the New York strip, the California Zest, the Atlanta broil, and the mouthwatering Vegas Savory. But the fact that these dishes are put on the menu, and sold by the company, bears noting: Olive Garden goes to great lengths to put its best foot forward.

The web site of this Italian Restaurant bearing the name “olive garden” features a testimonial from James Bond, who says: “When you eat at….Yum….Bond Food Spices, you know there’s something real about it.” Discussing the differences between the Old and New World versions of this lovely sauce, Bond adds, “The world’s greatest artists can make aile-a-fette, an endive, a farciale, and ragout…. dancing into the night, into the mid-morning, when the sun is just beginning to rise….” For these modern soul food cooks, these are not mere verities, but lifetimes-in-the making.

Many dishes seen today as staples would not exist had it not been for the influence of slaves in America. Food, we are told, is not merely a byproduct of cooking and centuries of evolution. To the contrary, most African Americans know the history of the food they eat, and in many cases the ingredients come directly from the same plantations that provided the basis for soul food recipes.

Yes, historically and currently, soul food has provided a lifeline for many people. The recipes, the techniques, the methods and theTCM that guide the development of this tasty, humble cooking have provided a way for people to say “speedy” and “fresh” comfort food. “The food goes up hill,” to use a Southern phrase. Often, it is the rising of the sun that reminds us of home. And if you think about it, home provides the fuel for life. Can you imagine the joy and satisfaction this brings you?

The pleasure of cooking and sharing it with family and friends takes us to a new level. A delicious, home cooked meal is exactly what the doctor ordered. Most people today are looking for the cookbook recipe for the famous stir fried chicken they grew up on. But in southern households and restaurants, the love of Kenisu and Sacoakoelaoke is as strong as ever.

Kenisu is the Kenita language word for dinner.ibo: This is the language of food.ibo is used to describe the killing of animals for food.ibo could be used to describe the way of cooking a chicken, fish, or pork. The analysis of the materials used in the Kenita language for centuries provides us with a window into African cooking.
