Completing your reflective journal

You are expected to complete a reflective journal for each time that you cook as part of your assessment for this unit. Try to think about the highlights of each service when you are writing your reflection. You might also find the following questions useful:

  • What skills and techniques did I use?
  • What policies and procedures did I follow?
  • How did I ensure efficiency, safety and quality?
  • How did I ensure that my dishes met quality standards?
  • What did I learn during the service and how might I apply it in future?
  • What might I do different next time?

Supervisor declaration

Your workplace supervisor’s feedback forms an important part of the assessment process and it is essential you have your supervisor complete their section of each of your reflective journals and fill in the supervisor declaration after the summary section. Keep in mind that, if you are completing your assessment in your RTO’s training kitchen, your trainer will be your workplace supervisor and should endorse your journal. Without their endorsement, your Logbook will be incomplete and it is likely to be returned to you for resubmission.

Logbook summary

There are a number of requirements you must fulfil within your assessment process, so a Logbook Summary has been provided. Make sure you keep this section up to date – it will help you keep track of any outstanding requirements.

Supervisor Declaration Section

Note for student: Please note, that one of these declarations must be completed by each workplace supervisor. If you completed all your shifts at the one venue then you would only submit one. If your logbook contains entries from different kitchens and venues then please have each supervisor you work under complete one at the end of all your designated shifts. Please provide this page to your workplace supervisor at the completion of your required shifts.

This needs to be completed in addition to the supervisor endorsement section of your reflective journals. One copy has been provided in this logbook but you can make additional copies as needed.

Service Planning

Determine production requirements

Confirm food production requirements

Analyse the standard recipe and associated food preparation list which you will be working from and answer the following questions.

  • How many meals are required? Describe how you will ensure that the correct number of meals are produced.


Two meals are necessary by figuring out the equations.

  • Calculate the number of portions that you need (show your workings).


We require 2 serving

  • Calculate the amount of each ingredient that you require. An ingredient list has been provided for you or you may like to use your organisation’s standard template.

  • Select the cookery method that you will use. Explain your decision.


I utilise the boiling procedure since it’s necessary for the thickness of custard

  • Select the cooking times and temperatures that you will use. Explain your decision.


As we utilised the boiling method, the cooking time will be 10 minutes, and the temperature will be 100 °.

  • Select the accompaniments which you will add to your dish. Explain your decision – how do the accompaniments complement your dish?


I utilise fruit as a garnish since it adds to the aesthetic appeal and flavour of your food.

  • Describe how you will select the ingredients that you need from stores. How will you check them for freshness and quality?


· Sugar

· Milk

· Custard

We will purchase these ingredients from supermarkets. As easy as it may seem, I can always tell if I am taking up something that is new and prepared for use by look, smell, and touch. I won’t buy anything without giving it a light squeeze, sniff, and look.

  • How will you check all perishable ingredients for spoilage or contamination?


One of the many techniques you should use to make sure the food you prepare and serve is safe to eat is sensory observation. Other techniques of verification include perception (such as reviewing cleaning schedules), substance (such as monitoring causticity levels or leading a safe investigation), and actual observation (for example checking temperature or weight). A fundamental component of every food safety plan is checking. Food Safety Plans should be based on the seven HACCP standards as they are legally required in many areas and industries. A fundamental component of every food safety plan is checking. Food Safety Plans should be based on the seven HACCP standards as they are legally required in many areas and industries.

  • List the food preparation equipment that you will need for this recipe. How will you ensure that it is clean, well maintained and ready for use?


· 1 Pan

· 1 Cup

· 2 Spoons

· 2 Bowls

It is clean because I used runny water to wash my hands and all the equipment, followed all the personal hygiene precautions, and ensured that everything would be kept in good condition.

Please note: Only one copy of each template has been included so you will need to make copies as required.
