The idea behind the YamDaisy Cafe is that every one should be able to access delicious, nourishing food.
The idea of the menu is to make such food part of a sustainable business (a whole franchise of YamDaisy Cafes!).
Most of the ideas of this menu comes from the idea of a great mum providing wonderful food every day to a big family.
Now, what does a YamDaisy Cafe menu look like?
The first thing is that there are only a few options every day. More like "What's for dinner mum?" than "let's have a look at this wonderful long menu!"
Next, the meals are made from scratch using local, seasonal ingredients. This is like the best mum in the world! No processed shortcuts! This also means that the meals will be made of ingredients that are at their freshest, and cheapest! Win, win!
This isn't restaurant food, it is the sort of food your doctor will encourage you to eat to prevent and manage chronic illness. It is the sort of food that a mum will feel proud, instead of guilty, to be giving to her family.
This is easy food! It is delicious, and even people on pensions can afford it!
Yes there IS takeaway!
Here are the nuts and bolts of it:
5 daily menus (M,T,W,Th,F) will be served each week through the month.
All can be takeaway.
The costs below are for registered clients. Others may pay a little more. They are in Australian dollars.
The four dishes of the day are:
COULD YOU DESIGN A YAMDAISY MENU ?
You will need to consider your community and the produce available at the time of year.
Keep costs low with seasonal ingredients, less meat and cheaper cuts.
Choose 'everyday' meals that will appeal to the community (your local community).
Make them mouthwateringly delicious.
Consider the range of the people you are cooking for. For example, can you please someone who hates fish, someone who adores fish, someone who is a diabetic and also a dedicated meat eater so they can all have something from your menu?
Consider the small kitchen and how the chef will organise. Don't let everything need to be baked in the oven!
They may only have help for a few hours a day, so keep it simple, we want meals that are made from scratch on the premises!
$7.50 meal for 60: for ingredients you can spend $150
