Got the ingredients for the perfect Ratatouille? Don’t forget Mango!

Remy pushed the chopped vegetables into a hot pan and heard them sizzle in the olive oil.

Linguini smiled. Another perfect pan of ratatouille thanks to Remy’s recipe, he thought.

“Come on, I’m doing the cooking, Colette is out looking for the best ingredients in Paris, and none of us can deal with any more paperwork!” Remy said.

Linguini nodded.

“I know, I know! And you’re a rat, so keeping up with paperwork and writing isn’t your forte.”

Remy sniggered: “The only paperwork we like is the shredded paper we use to make our nests!”

Linguini read the report in the newspaper.

“We can’t ignore this, though. The world’s changed since we opened our doors. We have to ensure La Ratatouille is looking after its diners properly. Safety is very important.”

Remy humphed.

“Isn’t it? Every time I set foot outside the restaurant, I worry about what’s going to happen to me. I don’t want our customers to feel like that about coming here. It’s the only place me and my family feel safe.”

Linguini nodded in agreement.

“Yes. I’ve been looking at what the restaurants in London have been doing now that they’re bringing in Martyn’s Law in the UK,” he said.

Remy stirred the pot and asked: “What’s that?”

Linguini replied: “ It’s a new law to ensure venues like restaurants and hotels have put plans in place to help detect potential attacks. It also ensures they do everything they can combat them if something does occur.

“The law is named after one of the 22 innocent victims of the 2017 Manchester Arena terrorist bombing, Martyn Hett.”

Remy nodded.

Linguini continued: “Restaurants like ours must have the right level of security with proper training and good, effective communication.”

Remy spooned the ratatouille out of the pan and into a dish, sprinkling chopped herbs on top.

“How can we ensure I can do this instead of hitting the computer keyboard with my feet all night?” he asked.

Linguini smiled. “Mango,” he replied.

Remy scratched his head.

“Mango? Not an ingredient we use much. Never in ratatouille!”

Linguini laughed.

“No, it’s online compliance software called Mango that I can access wherever I am, here or at home. It keeps all our records in the cloud, flags up when we need to renew things like training, and if anyone asks questions we can show them our plan in a few clicks.”

Remy nodded.

“That sounds good, especially the part when you talk about YOU and not ME doing it!”

Linguini said: “My friends at Penarth Management suggested it. They’ll train Colette and me on how to use Mango, and you can continue to do what you do best. It’ll save us time and keep the restaurant paper free.”

Remy gave him a chef’s kiss.

“Perfect!” he shouted.
