What is public catering with direct administering

Public catering with direct administering. One of the most important line of work, one of the most debated too, is without any doubt catering. There is a large number of people that dream to work or to invest in this sector.

Public catering with direct administering

Knowing what is public catering with direct administering can be fundamental  for those who shows interest in this fascinating and multi-colored world.

Public catering with direct administering

It’s no coincidence that when people decide to start a catering business such as bar or whatever plans to adminsitrate food and drinks, they attend a qualifying training course in order to learn everything about this topic.

This kind of courses are named SAB, back in the days their name was REC courses (Italian acronym for Registro Esercenti Commercio).  There are many of them but they are a really sought-after courses in almost every region. The difference between each one can be cost, circumstances and the different type of business but somehow they range the same subjects, from legislation to hygiene and heath.

Public catering with direct administering

Moreover they deal with catering techniques, safety work standards and all kind of marketing strategies that have been planned until nowadays. Obviously courses have to be organized by certified authorities that possess the requisites established by the region where they operate.

In the next paragraph we will discuss about who has to attend qualifying training courses, which are the criteria used to avoid their compulsoriness and later on we will understand  precisely what is public catering with direct administering.

When food and drinks training courses are compulsory?

As we earlier said, who decides to step up his game in catering or in a food and drink business, has to attend SAB courses provided by his region. There are some exception, that let you avoid to attend this courses.

Indeed, if the person concerned has a 5 year professional experience in a business that serves food and drinks he won’t have to register to or attend any course.

Public catering with direct administering

The same thing is valid in the case the person possess a university qualification or a high school or three-year diploma related to the business he is going to start. Last but not least if you are already register in “ registro esercenti” you are exonerated too.

It’s important to remember that who has to attend a SAB course, needs to pass the exam with a positive result in order to be authorized, and he has to do it following the ruels and fulfilling the minimum amount of hours established by the authorities.

It’s important to verify that the authorities and websites that offer the courses possess all the certification and requirements that allow them to release a valid certificate.

Public catering with direct administering

What is administration of food and drinks?

Public catering with direct administering

It’ defined administration of food and drinks the type of business related to the trade, distribution, and consumption of food in a public space or building. The definition is valid also for vending machines.

One of the things that defines the concept of administration is whether or not there are employees and there is a waiting service in the commercial activity.

In case of the employees take care of the customers but there is no waiting service, we can’t talk about food administration. An example could be buying something in a market, but also in an ice cream store, a deli or a shawarma stand.

In this cases the definition is retail trade activity because the food is purchased and paid without waiting service.

What are the characteristics of administration activities?

There are various characteristics and requirement that identify an administration activity. First of all, as concerned their location there are no limitations about where to start one, with the exception of municipal regulations.

Moreover they have to be monitored with ease and to observe the ministerial decree issued in December 92 that established the monitoring criteria about public administration activities.

This criteria differs on the bases of whether the activity is opened to the public or only to a small amount of people. Food administration activities, defined as “unique type”, must follow hygiene and health rules.

This activities have the possibility to offer a takeaway service for food and drinks that they sell without any further authorization. In the end we remember you that there aren’t laws that prevent a joint exercise between different type of activities, even thought there are different owners. The problem about this is that some standars, such as surveillance provisions, make it an unacceptable way.

Catering: spreading of Street Food

In the last 5/10 years a new type of catering is spreading like wildfire. We are talking about street food known for the quickness and the simplicity of its dishes and also for the place where dishes are eaten: streets.


Foods are various, you can eat Piadine, Panini, french fries and different types of International street foods. 30 millions Italians prefer this type of catering because of its possibility, you can eat while you are walking with your friends or family without spending so much and you can discover traditional foods about the country you live in or you visit.

Each day the number of events referring to street foods increase and that is the reason why people loves traditional foods more than foods that comes from other countries. Sometime happens that foods are not good enough and their raw materials are low quality one. So this compare street food to junk food.

The financial point is, that street food is a market in continuous growing in our country. This is proved by the birth in 2008 of Associazione Italiana Street Food, whose function is to gather the best of the Italian street food makers ad to form and inform them about traditional foods and their roots.


In 2012, thanks to the publishing house Lonely Planet, the first guide to the best street food of the world was born. The year after Gambero Rosso proposed an Italian version of the guide that soon became an app.

It’s good to know that for traditional cooking activities, street food can be a winning promotional idea when talking of important event or festivals.

The trend and the spreading of vegan and vegetarian food


According to Eurispes data this year approximately the 8 percent of the Italians chose to avoid eating meat and became vegetarian. Among vegetarians 1/3 are vegans, people who don’t eat meat neither fish or other foods that comes from them.

The growth of this phenomena has various motivations that spaces from the ethical factor to the foodstuff one. This factors are important for people who decided to be vegan or vegetarian. This movement influenced not only the person who made the choice but also catering services because food facilities needed to adapt themselves to the customers requests.

The change was slow so it provokes some problems for vegans and vegetarians who felt uncomfortable when they ate together with friends or with their family because they couldn’t find appropriate foods.

Things begin to change. A new market is growing, each year the number of vegan food restaurants increase all over Italy: Botteghe, Trattorie, bar and gourmet restaurant.

Recently even standard food facilities offer vegans dishes, and part of their menu is dedicated to alternative cousin, for the joy of some chefs who can create new type of foods.

The weight of the Asian food on Catering


It’s a big pleasure to live in Italy one of the best country in the world referring to gastronomy. Our cuisine is one of the most envied in Europe, we propose dishes like pasta or pizza, they are appreciated everywhere. A lot of  Italian businessman in the last years has begun to successfully invest in abroad Italy country and to open Italian restaurants which attracts Italian and native client.



One of the good thing about Italian cooking is it’s variety which depends on the region you visit. One of the bad thing about Italians of the past was its closure to new type of food such as Asian one.

Things hopefully changed, more and more people appreciate Asian various ,tasty, and sophisticated foods. This caused the birth of  many Japanese, Chinese and Thai restaurants especially a great number of sushi bar spread in our country.

Some of them offers medium quality products and competitive prices using also ”all-you-can-eat”( As the sentence says with a standard small amount of money you can eat literally anything) others offers high quality products more expensive but also more sophisticated.


The trend of catering of the next years has started moving in two directions: left side there is the increase in value of traditional cooking, part of our culture from years, that needs to be continuously renewed. Right side it’s important to open up about new type of cooking such as Asian or vegetarian food in order to mix different tradition and offer more variety.

These direction offer to business the opportunity to invest their money and achieve good financial and credibility results.

How to choose the best table for your restaurant

Choose the best table. In the last decade we witnessed a rising interest in food and food services. The reason why is Italians has a  great attitude for cooking that is part of our culture from centuries. Because of that Italian people developed a passion for each aspect of cooking.

choose the best table

Moreover we have to consider the great success by some reality shows that feeds this phenomena. Even though all over the world in the last 15 years a big crisis occurs in the financial sector, catering service is one of the few that still works fine.

Choose the best table

A great number of businessman each day desire to start a Restaurant and begin to think about a project bu there is a lot of important things to consider before doing that such as the fiscal cash register.

One of the important things to know is absolutely how to choose an appropriate furniture and in particular the choice of the tables that best fit the restaurant. In this article, whose task is to guide you through the choice, we will talk about different tables for restaurants trying to figure out what are the alternatives that marketplace offers and how to choose when you are thinking about your restaurant.

We will see the features that a restaurant table must have and the different materials we can choose.

Restaurant Table: the materials

Choose the best table

When we have to choose the design of our own activity it’s important to find out what and choose the restaurant table that fits our needs. The criteria we should consider are different, let’s start from choosing the materials whit what tables are made of.

First of all we should consider that material types evolved over time according to market requests which, as we know, change rapidly and often during years. Because of that the choice is personal and referrers to the style and ideas of design of the client and the needs of its Restaurant.

Choose the best table

The most common are wood crafted tables, good looking and elegant but expensive. This material is often preferred by those who have the project to start a rough casual old style restaurant, and want to create a warm and welcoming atmosphere.

Other materials are metal (steel, aluminium, iron) and synthetic one.

The choice of the material is influenced by the space in which you’ll eventually put the tables. Indeed there is a big difference between indoor and outdoor locations, for those who luckily have one.

Starting from the indoor location we can say that the main features of the tables are their design and the capability of being easily moved. Due to that we suggest you to choose wood crafted tables and synthetic one.

Choose the best table

Talking about outdoor location thing changes because often tables do not have a covering on them so they have to resist to the decay caused by natural elements. So, first thing to consider is weather.

The best choice in this case is ironsteel or aluminium crafted tables,  they are very resistant and tough, not rain nor wind can ruin them. The flaw of metals is that they are expensive, the alternative is to buy cheaper and less stylish plastic tables. You should, without any doubt, avoid wood because it is more delicate and requires attentions and maintenances.

Choose the best table

Restaurant tables: form and size

Choose the best table

Another important aspect of restaurant tables selection certainly is their form and their size. Indeed it’s wrong choosing one bigger or smaller and rounded rather than circular because you will waste space.

So it’s important to consider the size of the restaurant room: for example if the room is narrow but long and if the counter seize a big amount of space, the smartest solution could be wall fixed tables.

Choose the best table

This solution give us the chance to add some sits and use all the space when the restaurant is crowded. Another example is a wide room, in this case a wise solution could be employing squared tables, more handily to join in the possibility of a large number people reservation.

A little trick you should do, and a lot of people do it, is to diagonally organize tables instead of in parallel because they occupy less space.

Restaurant tables: important features

Choose the best table

Important features that restaurant tables must have are: comfort, essential thing because customers should feel at their ease; firmness and material quality, you should avoid buying low quality products because at some point you will regreat.

Apulian Cusine

Restaurant in Puglia

Apulian cuisine is characterized by the importance given to raw materials, both land and sea. The region has always valued the precision in the kitchen with a focus on the exaltation rather than on the alteration of the flavors of the ingredients used for the products; this allows you to find all the favorite vegetables in any season – turnips (to name one), green cabbage thistle peppers eggplant artichokes etc, not only those that are nearby but also more exotic ones such as those grown on site or at higher altitudes where it is warm enough so that they do not spoil before falling below the harvest quotas due to too hot climatic conditions.

Traditional dishes

Restaurant in Puglia

This kitchen has a peculiarity that distinguishes it from other kitchens, and that of offering different dishes depending on the seasons. For example: in spring, when vegetables are at their mildest (and most delicious) point of the season, preference is given to these foods instead of red meats such as beef or pork; while in the colder autumn months you will see families cooking large pots on the fire using hardy roots like potatoes along with fat cuts like duck breast fillets.

The most typical dish is orecchiette with horse meat sauce, whose recipe is now widespread in all cookbooks. Among the other traditional dishes worthy of note are those based on turnip tops and turnip leaf; among them the Chicory with the puree of broad beans, which binds this territory to Mediterranean cuisine, such as the Risotto alla Cavatellicons cozzze or the Fritters of barley semolina – PatateRiceEggs – also called “Chips”.

Apulian cheeses are unique in that they can be used as an appetizer, light dish or specialty of the love of the gods! The best way to enjoy these tasty treasures is to add them to your favorite pasta, such as cacioricotta that contains small pieces (or “mince”) of minced pork mixed with fresh tomato sauce.
