Food Preparation and Service, Course Description.
White, Thomas C.; Anderson, Floyd L.
Prepared by an instructor and curriculum development specialist of the Minnesota Work Opportunity Center, this course is designed to help dropout and/or hard-core unemployed youth develop knowledge and skills needed for food service occupations. Originally, students were allowed to enter training at any time and for any block of time, but this resulted in too many part-time students. A new program was developed for full-time students which includes classroom instruction and kitchen experiences. In the kitchen, the student begins at the entry level and gradually progresses through a series of tasks until he becomes the supervisor for a week. At the end of the program, students are qualified for the position of salad worker, short order cook, cook's helper, kitchen worker, baker's helper, and waitress or waiter. Instructional topics are soups and sauces, vegetables, meats, salads, desserts and bakery items, and buffet and customer service. An annotated bibliography is included, and brief descriptions of the Center's instructional areas, a listing of teaching techniques and motivation devices, and case studies are appended. Related materials are available as VT 011 518-VT 011 533 in this issue. (SB)
