Great Taste Magazine 2009 Sept/Oct Issue features Chef Don Schoenburg and some simple tips you can do to de-stress and maintain a flourishing business.

Health and well-being are of high importance to most people but for those of us in the hospitality industry it can be hard to find the time to give our health the attention that it needs. In this issue of Great Taste, we give you a few tips of some simple things you can do to de-stress and maintain a flourishing business. Robin Jones, Spa Director at The Spa at the Grand Del Mar, gives us an overview of the perils and pitfalls of working in the hospitality industry and some tips on how to prevent and relieve pain using reflexology and good body mechanics.

We also feature some ways to relieve the physical stress from standing in the kitchen all day and how you can eat the stress away with certain types of food rich in certain nutrients. Healthy eating is an integral part of good health but most people aren’t willing to deprive themselves of their favorite drinks and food. Deprivation isn’t the only way to go; we compare popular cocktails to show you how you can still go out for drinks after work without totally blowing your diet. A great, juicy burger is another thing most people wouldn’t want to deprive themselves of but is not always the healthiest. There is a healthy alternative to beef: large game. Meats like venison, bison and elk are a healthier alternative to beef with less calories and cholesterol but just as much delicious juicy flavor.

Our featured Chef this month is Chef Don Schoenburg of Leatherby’s Cafe Rouge. He gives us a look at his background in the hospitality industry and even keeps the health trend going with a great (and healthy!) recipe for Lemongrass Grouper with Caribbean Vegetable Stew. Plus we have a couple other healthy recipes, tips and tricks inside the pages of this issue of Great Taste Magazine.
