Product Junkie: The Cool Side of Hospitality
When I mentioned to a colleague that I was helping Caterer & Hotelkeeper (a magazine I was fervently competing with 12 years ago) set up a blog around hospitality products, they rolled their eyes and stifled a yawn.
Well, it launched last week, and I checked in on it to see how it was getting along. And found myself a little surprised. Where were the products for chopping things and blending things? Where were the pots, pans and utensils? Where, not to put too fine a point on it, was the stainless steel?
Nowhere to be found. Instead I found nothing but sauce on [Product Junkie](http://www.caterersearch.com/blogs/product-junkie/), and I’m not talking about the sort you get drizzled over your tuna steak, here. Oh, no.
Instead we have, for example, [a chocolate-themed fashion show](http://www.caterersearch.com/blogs/product-junkie/2009/02/chocolate-fashion-show.html) (see right). And news that [hospitality staff are getting thinner](http://www.caterersearch.com/blogs/product-junkie/2009/01/shrinking-staff.html).
Or how about [sex and hospitality](http://www.caterersearch.com/blogs/product-junkie/2009/01/sex-at-hospitality.html)?
I think I’m going to have a little lie down now…
