Topics include preparation methods for protein, starch, vegetable/fruit identification, selection, storage; breakfast cookery, breads, sweet doughs/pastries; basic fabrication, knife skills, and mise en place. Upon completion, students should be able to execute efficiently a broad range of basic cooking/baking skills as they apply to different stations in foodservice operations. Weekly participation in Global Cuisine buffets, banquets, and a la carte production enhances student service skills.
