Alternate Culminating Assignment for 11/12

If you have successfully completed the Wedding Planning culminating assignment in a previous year, you are to complete this assignment.

Part One (50%)

You are to prepare and serve a three course meal in the Hospitality Lab at RCI, during one 75 minute period. You may do your own prep work at home (or during other class time, if available) if you feel you may not have enough time in one period to complete everything. You must provide your own ingredients (as you will be either eating this meal yourself, or bringing it home for your family to eat).

Some key things to account for:
  • Safety First
  • Ensure equipment is available beforhand
  • Clean work area
  • Following work plan.
  • Proper place setting
  • Proper serving technique
  • Platting
  • Clean-up
You will also prepare a recipe for each dish you will be making. Included with each recipe will be a work plan outlining step-by-step tasks, which will be prepared in advance. The recipe will explain why specific herbs and spices or seasoning have been included.
