Faculty teaching this course in Spring 2015:
This course introduces the student to food and beverage operations through three major components: fundamental food composition and properties, food products and preparation, and food safety. Students prepare recipes, menus, and production schedules. Students develop the ability to recognize properly prepared foods by preparing, tasting, and evaluating them. They also are involved in a project in which they create menus, develop and standardize recipes, and complete a plan for a dining event. Completion of a five-hour practicum experience in the Statler Hotel back-of-the-house is a required course activity.
