Customer input could be a source of inspiration

Diners may have constructive feedback for chefs

When looking for new sources of inspiration to prompt the creation of a new adventurous recipe, chefs could turn to their diners for feedback.

Constructive criticism from the individuals who are eating the food you prepare could be invaluable and they could think of things in unexpected ways.

McCormick's resident expert Chef Steve says listening to people from all areas of the culinary arena is one of his key professional inspirations.

So if there is any truth in the old adage 'the customer is always right', why not take their opinion into account?

One restaurant - the Farmers Arms in Scorton - recently reopened and celebrated this event by raising over £100 for charity with a 'Tell us what you think of the new menu' initiative.

Customers sampled a three course meal that showcased new dishes and were invited to pay whatever they felt the final product merited.

Input does not have to be quite as much of an influence on the business side of catering as this, but what other ways do you think the diner would be able to make a positive contribution to a dish?
