Menu Project

I took a class this semester called ‘Quantity Food Preparation’. Sounds complex but it’s really a class where we learn how to cost, prepare and cook food in a commercial kitchen etc. At the beginning of the term, we were assigned a Menu Project in which we, in groups, had to come up with a menu theme for a 5 course meal. We had to cost it, analyze the nutrients, prepare it and finally cook and present it to a panel of judges. My group’s theme was that all of our dishes were to be made using tea. After an 8 week period of researching and experimenting, today was the day we had to cook our meal and present it. Everything went really well and turned out we won not third, not second BUT first place! Really enjoyed the whole process. A lot of work went into our 5 item menu..can’t imagine the work that goes into comprising a complete restaurant menu. Anyway, check out the pictures below:
