Task: Develop a Production Plan

To prepare the production plan, you need to complete the ingredients and equipment lists and a workflow chart for the given meat dishes, before commencing your mise en place and cooking.

You must develop the production plan using the template provided below. If you do not understand any part, ask your assessor/trainer.

To develop a production plan, you need to complete the following parts:

Part A: Select ingredients

This part requires you to confirm the quantity and serving requirements from the food preparation list and standard recipes with your trainer/assessor.

Considering the information given in the recipes, you are then required to calculate ingredient amounts.

Note: You must adjust the quantity of ingredients considering the number of serves you are cooking and minimise wastage by selecting the right quantity of ingredients.

Part B: Select equipment

Part B requires you to list all the knives and other equipment required to prepare the vegetarian & vegan dishes listed in the case study.

For each of the vegetarian & vegan dishes to be prepared, you need to select the type and size of knives and equipment required.
