Part C-Recipe card: Ingredients:

This part requires you to identify all the ingredients from standard recipes provided to you and calculate ingredient amounts according to per number of serves you are preparing.  Enter the ingredients on production plan. This will require your numeracy skills to calculate the quantity and number of serves and you must use standard trade names for ingredients and various products as per recipe.

(e.g. To determine the freshness of egg, you must place the egg in a deep bowl filled with cold water and check if it:

Sinks to the bottom and stays there, it’s about 3-6 days old

Sinks but floats, its more than a week old

Sinks but then stands on end, it’s about 2 weeks old

Floats to the surface, it’s very old and should not be used)

  • Weigh, measure and portion ingredients according to recipes and number of serves you are cooking as mentioned in production plan. Also make sure you are using appropriate measure equipment and correct units of measurement.
  • You are required to prepare dishes using each of the following cookery methods at least once:
  • Clean and cut other ingredients using basic cuts according to culinary standards e.g. right shape and size for each cut. Make sure you use right knife for cuts and minimize waste to maximize yield and profitability e.g. while peeling potatoes make sure you use peeler and don’t peel too much.
  • Complete mis-en -place and preparation.

Step 2-  Cook vegetable, fruit, egg and farinaceous dishes

Step 3- Present and store vegetable, fruit, egg and farinaceous dishes.

  • You must add dip or sauce to blend, enhance or dominate the flavor of the dish according to standard. You should add suitable garnishes according to standard recipe to enhance the colour, flavour, texture and the overall presentation of the meal.

Your assessor and internal staff (invited to taste meals) will act as customer for your cooked dish and your assessor or customer may ask you to adjust dishes according to their preference.

Step 4-Portfolio of work done

  • You are required to take at least 2 photos during each Practical Demonstration and affix them at the space provided in Portfolio Template provided.
  • You should write name of Dish for each photo and date when it was taken.

Step 5-End of service Procedures:

  • After you finish your presentation to your assessor, you must store the food items at the appropriate temperature and under the correct storage conditions to maintain quality, freshness, to minimise wastage and spoilage. This will include storing in appropriate environmental conditions Including:
  • Humidity
  • Atmosphere
