Capitalize all words except preparations, articles or conjunctions<br />2. Arrange the menu items in the order in which they are to be eaten<br />3. Arrange the foods that are offered by courses<br />4. Write accompaniments for a certain menu item to the right or underneath the menu item. If there are two accompaniments write these to the left and to the right of the foods it is supposed to be served with.<br />5.

Edit to avoid misspelled words, incorrect grammar, etc.<br />11. Provide margins on top, bottom and sides of the menu<br />12. Keep the menu clean.<br />Context for Menu Planning<br />1. Audience<br />a. How many people are to be served?<br />b. What are their approximate ages?<br />c. What cultures are represented?<br />d. Are there special needs?<br />2. Kitchen and Dining Facilities<br />a. What equipment limitations exist?<br />b. What serving limitations exist?<br />3. Resources<br />a. How much time is available for food preparation, service, and cleanup?<br />b. What budget is available for these meals?<br />c. What people are available to prepare the food?<br />d. What people will do the service and cleanup?<br />PROCEDURES IN MENU PLANNING<br />1. Choose the entrée. <br />2. Pick the soup, garnishes, and relishes which will accompany the main course<br />3. Select the rice, potato, and other carbohydrate-rich dishes<br />4. Select salad or fruits suited for the main course<br />5. Be sure that the chosen appetizers and dessert are appropriate<br />6. Beverages may vary according to individual preferences<br />REFINING MENU PLANS<br />1. Check each day’s plans against the recommendations in My Pyramid.<br />2. Determine the servings need to be added or deleted.<br />3. Identify specific recipes (preparations and serving) <br />4. Visualizing the main course.<br />5. Decide on the garnishes or accompaniments<br />6. Make some necessary adjustments need to be made.<br />CHAPTER 3<br />MANAGING MARKETING<br />Marketing is essential in meal management. Selecting good, quality ingredients should be a basic knowledge for a meal manager. Smart shopping can help keep food costs reasonable. Food-buying decision is important because they influence not only finances but also time, energy, food of excellent quality and health.<br />THE MARKET PLACE<br />A. Factors in Selecting a Market<br />
      • Location
      • Cleanliness
      • Physical Features
      • Services and Personnel
      • Overall Food Quality
      • Fresh Produce
      • Meat and Dairy
      • Delicatessen and bakery
      • Breadth of inventory
      • Food prices
      B. Types of Market <br />
      • Supermarket- a one-stop shopping market which offers wide array of products available. Most supermarkets are units in a chain owned by a large corporation wherein huge quantities are being purchased by these chains. Supermarkets that are owned independently, spawns a problem of purchasing goods at low enough prices to be able to retail them competitively against chain markets.
      • Niche Markets- a bit smaller than supermarkets. It is the subset of the market on which a specific product is focusing; therefore the market niche defines the specific product features aimed at satisfying specific market needs, as well as the price range, production quality and the demographics that is intended to impact.
      • Discount Stores- a type of department store, which sells products at prices lower than those asked by traditional retail outlets. 
      • Warehouse Clubs- A  retail store, usually selling a wide variety of merchandise, in which customers are required to buy large, wholesale quantities of the store's products, which makes these clubs attractive to both bargain hunters and small business owners. This type of market usually requires an annual membership fee for shopping privileges.
      • Convenience Store- is a small store or shop in a built up area that stocks a range of everyday items such as groceries, toiletries, alcoholic and soft drinks. Convenience stores are usually located near residential areas.
      • Farmer’s Market- consist of individual vendors, mostly farmers, who set up booths, tables or stands, outdoors or indoors, to sell produce, meat products, fruits and sometimes prepared foods and beverages
      PURCHASING<br />2 Types of Purchasing<br />
      • Informal buying or open market methods- involves oral negotiation and in usually used when the amount involved is not large, and speed and simplicity are desired.
      • Quotation and order sheet method- quantity and quality of an item are listed and a space or column is provided for recording quoted prices of vendors. The prices are compared and decision is made.
      • Blank check- this method is used when there is an extreme need for a particular food item. The buyer orders something without knowing the price and the vendor locates the food item. When the item is located, the vendor informs the buyer of the price and if it is within the buyer’s range, the item is delivered to the buyer.
      • Cost-plus- this is used when markets are unstable or prices are not known. The vendor buys the food item at the most favorable price and adds a certain amount to the quoted price. The additional price is often expressed in percentage (20%) and is used to cover the seller’s profit.
      • Formal buying methods- usually involve large contracts for commodities to be purchased for long periods of time and are usually written than oral.
      • Competitive-bid- involves several steps such as 1) the buyer sends invitations or places of advertisements for possible sellers to bid to supply food items. Invitation includes Set of Conditions: terms of payments, discount, method of delivery, billing requirement, payment arrangement and specifications of quality and quantity of food items. 2) Sellers and bidders provide the buyer the price quotation and other information as requested.
      • Negotiated-bid- sometimes bidders are hesitant to bid because of time restrictions, a fluctuating market or perish ability of the products. Buyer and seller negotiate over the phone the terms of specifications and others.
      • Futures and contract method- this method is used by big businesses with enough capital and staff. Food items are contracted for future delivery. With this method, the buyer is assured of continuous supply at an established price thus avoiding shortages and price fluctuations.
      Factors that determine purchasing needs:<br />
      • Menu
      • Type and image that the establishment wants to project
      • Style of operations and service system
      • Occasion when the item is needed
      • Amount of available storage area- dry, refrigerated, frozen
      • Financial resources and buying policies of the organization
      • Availability, seasonability, price trends and supply of the items needed.
      Quantity as a factor in food purchasing<br />
      • Number of people to be served
      • Portion size based on yield test or other standard potion list set by management
      • Familiarity with weight and sizes of various products including common can and jar sizes.
      Quality as a determinant in food purchasing <br />Quality of food is assessed against standards or a set of specifications. Product quality includes the following:<br />
      • grades
      • style
      • appearance
      • Composition
      • Variety

      2 Kinds of Standards<br />
      • Voluntary Standards- is set by the producers and packers. They assign grade to their products
      • Regulatory Standards- set by the government and usually indicate the wholesomeness of the food. Government stamp approval on the product.
      THE SHOPPING LIST<br />Shopping list is a record of items needed to be purchased by a shopper. <br />
      • Advantages of Shopping List
      • Save time and energy
      • Save fuel cost/ transportation cost
      • Avoids temptation to buy forgotten items at a convenience store
      • Organizing a List
      • Structured according to the market’s floor plan
      • Canned goods and heavy items are at the top of the list
      • Next is refrigerated items (meats and milk)
      • Fresh produce can be selected prior to frozen foods
      • Check your inventory in finalizing your shopping list

      • Composition of Milk
      • Lipids- or milk fat made up of triglycerides with a wide array of fatty fats
      • Carbohydrates- lactose (glucose or galactose)
      • Proteins
      • Casein- (78%); precipitates readily to form a curd using acid or the enzyme rennin
      • Whey proteins- (17%); remaining liquid which can be separated by draining the casein curd
      • Vitamins and minerals- all except vitamin C and iron; good source of calcium and phosphorus
      • Types of milk in the market
      • Fluid Milk
      • 1.1 Heat Treatment
      • Pasteurized milk- milk that has been heat treated to kill disease- causing microorganisms.
      TYPES OF PASTEURIZATION a heat treatment of milk adequate to kill microorganisms that can cause illness in people<br />
      • Hold Method- pasteurization in which milk is heated to 63 oC and held there for 30 minutes before it is cooled to 7 oC.
      • HTST method- high-temperature short time pasteurization in which milk is heated to 72 oC and held for at least 15 seconds before cooling to 10 oC.
      • UHT (ultra-heat-treated)- sterilized milk that can be stored at room temperature until opened. This ultra- high temperature pasteurization; milk is heated very fast to 138 oC held for at least 2 seconds, then stored in a sterile container
      • Fat Level
      • Whole milk- possibly as high as 3.8% fat, with 160 calories per cup
      • Reduced Fat- 2% of fat, with 125 calories per cup
      • Low-fat or light milk- 1% fat, 102 calories
      • Non-fat or Fat- free milk- <0.1% fat, 90 calories
      • Flavored milk
      • Lactase- Treated Milk- lactose, the sugar in milk, is digested by lactase to form glucose and galactose in enzyme-treated milk, such as Lactaid. Lactaid is a milk which lactase has digested much of the lactose.
      • Buttermilk- this milk is made from skim milk that has been heated to 85oC for 30 mins and then fermented with lactic-acid- producing bacteria at 22 oC to produce somewhat thickened, slightly acidic milk.
      • Goat’s Milk- has stronger odor and flavor than cow’s milk, appeals to some consumers.
      • Canned Milk- processed at high temperatures for an extended period in airtight cans.
      • Evaporated Milk- about half of the water has been evaporated from the milk before canning.
      • Sweetened Condensed Milk- is another canned milk product that has had approximately half of its water removed prior to canning. This type of milk has a large amount of sugar added to it, making its caloric content very high.
      • Dried Milk- or also known as powdered milk. Powdered milk is a manufactured dairy product made by evaporating milk to dryness. One purpose of drying milk is to preserve it; milk powder has a far longer shelf life than liquid milk and does not need to be refrigerated, due to its low moisture content. Another purpose is to reduce its bulk for economy of transportation. Powdered milk and dairy products include such items as dry whole milk, nonfat dry milk, dry buttermilk, dry whey products and dry dairy blends. 
      • Milk Substitute
      • There are some people who are allergic to milk protein and may need to find different dietary source of calcium. Soymilk and rice drinks are today’s possible solution in avoiding milk proteins while still obtaining useful amounts of calcium
      Milk Cookery<br />
      • Reactions of Milk
      • Heat- coagulation starts at 650c (1500F).
      • Acid- accelerates curdling and coagulation.
      • Salts- Depending upon the kind and amount, also hasten coagulation.
      • Enzymes- rennin in the stomach hastens coagulation.
      • Alkaloids- hasten coagulation.
      • Effects on prolonged heating on milk
      • Scum Formation and tendency of milk to boil over due to the pressure built below the scum
      • Scorching- if milk is heated directly over fire, it tends to be scorched due to the accumulation of a film of milk protein at the bottom and side of the pan
      • Fat coalescence; the colloidal system is broken
      • Pointers in milk cookery
      • Slow heat and at temperature below boiling point
      • To avoid scum formation, use proper dilution and stir occasionally.
      • Food Handling (Milk)
      • Check the best before date or the expiration
      • Remember to use milk in the order in which you purchased it.
      • Refrigerate at 4 oC as soon as possible after purchase
      • Store milk on refrigerator shelves rather than doors
      • Remember that exposing milk to light destroys its riboflavin content and can cause off flavors
      • Keep milk containers closed and stored away from strong- smelling foods
      • Although freezing milk affects the texture, it may be frozen for up to 3 weeks with only minor nutrients and flavor loss.
      • Dry powdered milk stored in a cool, dry place will keep for up to one year. Once the package is opened, it should be used within 2 months. After being reconstituted, it should be treated the same as regular fluid milk. Always close the package tightly after opening.
      CREAMS<br />A fatty portion of milk that has risen to the surface and is separated by gravity or centrifugal force.<br />Cream is a dairy product that is composed of the higher-butterfat layer skimmed from the top of milk before homogenization. In un-homogenized milk, over time, the lighter fat rises to the top. In the industrial production of cream this process is accelerated by using centrifuges called "separators". In many countries, cream is sold in several grades depending on the total butterfat content. Cream can be dried to a powder for shipment to distant markets.<br />Cream skimmed from milk may be called "sweet cream" to distinguish it from whey cream skimmed from whey, a by-product of cheese-making. Whey cream has a lower fat content and tastes more salty, tangy and "cheesy".<br />Cream produced by cows (particularly Jersey cattle) grazing on natural pastureoften contains some natural carotenoid pigments derived from the plants they eat; this gives the cream a slight yellow tone, hence the name of the yellowish-white color, cream. Cream from goat's milk, or from cows fed indoors on grain or grain-based pellets, is white.<br />
      • Types of CreamFat Content
      • Half and half- 10.15- 18 %
      • Coffee Cream 18-30 %
      • Light Whipping Cream 30-36 %
      • Heavy Cream 36 %
      • Sour Cream- 18% milkfat; acid flavor abtained through the addition of lactic- acid forming bacteria.
      • Other Cream Products
      Butter is made by churning cream to separate the butterfat and buttermilk. This can be done by hand or by machine.<br />Whipped cream is made by whisking or mixing air into cream with more than 30% fat, to turn the liquid cream into a soft solid. Nitrous oxide may also be used to make whipped cream.<br />Crème fraîche (28% milk fat) is slightly soured with bacterial culture, but not as sour or as thick as sour cream. Mexican crema (or cream espesa) is similar to crème fraîche.<br />Smetana is a heavy cream product (35-40% milk fat) Central and Eastern European sweet or sour cream.<br />Rjome or rømme is Norwegian sour cream containing 35% milk fat, similar to Icelandic rjómi.<br />Clotted cream, common in the United Kingdom, is cream that has been slowly heated to dry and thicken it, producing a very high-fat (55%) product. This is similar to Indian malai.<br />
      • C. Pointers in Whipping Cream:
      • Chill cream for 30 minutes to one hour at 4 0c for maximum thickening.
      • A more stiff and permanent foam is attained with higher fat content.
      • Adding sugar decreases both volume and stability of foam. Whip cream before adding sugar.
      • Different Cream Grades by Jurisdiction
      United States<br />In the United States, cream is usually sold as:<br />Half and half (10.5–18% fat)<br />Light, coffee, or table cream (18–30% fat)<br />Medium cream (25% fat)<br />Whipping or light Whipping cream (30–36% fat)<br />Heavy Whipping cream (36% or more)<br />Extra-heavy, double, or manufacturer's cream (38–40% or more).<br />
      • Australia
      • In Australia, levels of fat in cream are not regulated, therefore labels are only under the control of the manufacturers. A general guideline is as follows:
      Extra light (or 'lite'): 12–12.5% fat.<br />Light (or 'lite'): 18–20% fat.<br />Pure cream: 35–56% fat, without artificial thickeners.<br />Thickened cream: 35–36.5% fat, with added gelatine and/or other thickeners to give the cream a creamier texture, also possibly with stabilisers to aid the consistency of whipped cream (this would be the cream to use for whipped cream, not necessarily for cooking)<br />Single cream: Recipes calling for 'single cream' are referring to pure or thickened cream with about 35% fat.<br />Double cream: 48–60% fat. <br />
      • United Kingdom
      In the United Kingdom, the types of cream are legally defined as follows:<br />NameMinimummilk fatAdditional definitionMain usesa. Clotted cream55%is heat treatedServed as it is.

      • Canada
      • Canadian cream definitions are similar to those used in the United States, except for that of "light cream." In Canada, "light cream" is low-fat cream, with 5% or 6% fat. Another form of cream available in Canada is "cereal cream", which is approximately mid-way between 5% cream and coffee cream in fat content.
      • Japan
      In Japan, cream sold in supermarkets is usually between 46% and 48% butterfat.<br />YOGURT <br />
      • The process of making yogurt involves culturing cream or milk with live and active bacterial cultures; this is accomplished by adding bacteria directly to the milk. Commercially made yogurt is usually made with a culture of Lactobacillus acidophilus and Streptococcus thermophilis. Some manufacturers use Lactobacillus bulgaricus rather than L. acidophilus.Yogurt made at home is usually started by adding a dab of commercially made yogurt to boiled milk, and then keeping the mixture at 112° Fahrenheit (45° Celsius).
      KEEPING YOGURT FRESH<br />
      • Refrigerate immediately after purchase. Store on refrigerator shelves
      • Seal yogurt containers well to protect the yogurt from other foods with strong odors
      • If yogurt separates and a watery liquid rises to the top, stir it if you prefer the yogurt to remain fairly thin. Otherwise, drain it off.
      • The longer you keep yogurt, the sharper the flavor will be.
      • Spoon as much as you are going to eat into a bowl. Do not return unused portions of yogurt to the original container.
      • Do not freeze yogurt—freezing affects its flavor and texture.
      ICE CREAM<br />A frozen dessert usually made from dairy products, such as milk and cream, and often combined with fruits or other ingredients and flavors. It is often a mixture of cream, milk solids and flavorings into which air has been stirred.<br />Overrun means increase in the volume of ice cream because of air incorporated during the freezing process. <br />Ingredients Added in Ice Cream: <br />
      • Stabilizers- helps control the rate of melting when ice cream is served and promotes smoother texture
      • Flavoring Agent- may be artificial flavoring agents or they may be added ingredients.
      Procedures in Ice Cream Making<br />Ice Cream has become such a commonality today that it can be made by large companies, or at home using a variety of ingredients and equipment from the very finest to the most inexpensive. Different ways of making ice cream have also been developed. But there is still that basic way that has been being used for years and is still used by many today. It goes as follows:<br />Milk, cream, milk solids, sugars and flavorings are blended together in stainless steel vats.<br />The mixture is homogenized, under high pressure. This involves forcing the mixture through a fine nozzle in a stainless steel valve, helping to create the desired texture.<br />The mixture is then pasteurized by heating at 82 ºC to 85 ºC for 15 seconds and then rapidly cooling it to eliminate potentially harmful bacteria.<br />The mixture is left to stand for about four hours so that it solidify's and the viscosity increases. Flavors are added during this time.<br />The mixture is then frozen and beaten. The process adds air in small cells while it creates a texture.<br />The ice cream is then packaged.<br />The ice cream is frozen at about -25ºC to allow the ice cream to harden.<br />Other Frozen Desserts<br />The following is a partial list of ice cream-like frozen desserts and snacks:<br />Ais kacang: a dessert in Malaysia and Singapore made from shaved ice, syrup, and boiled red bean and topped with evaporated milk. Sometimes, other small ingredients like raspberries and durians are added.<br />Dondurma: Turkish ice cream, made of salep and mastic resin<br />Frozen custard: at least 10% milk fat and at least 1.4% egg yolk and much less air beaten into it, similar to Gelato, fairly rare. Known in Italy as Semifreddo.<br />Frozen yogurt: a low fat or fat free alternative made with yogurt<br />Gelato: an Italian frozen dessert having a lower milk fat content than ice cream.<br />Halo-halo: a popular Filipino dessert that is a mixture of shaved ice and milk to which are added various boiled sweet beans and fruits, and served cold in a tall glass or bowl.<br />Ice milk: less than 10% milk fat and lower sweetening content, once marketed as "ice milk" but now sold as low-fat ice cream in the United States.<br />Ice pop (or lolly): frozen fruit puree, fruit juice, or flavoured sugar water on a stick or in a flexible plastic sleeve.<br />Kulfi: Believed to have been introduced to South Asia by the Mughal conquest in the 16th century; its origins trace back to the cold snacks and desserts of Arab and Mediterraneancultures.[28]<br />Mellorine: non-dairy, with vegetable fat substituted for milk fat<br />Parevine: Kosher non-dairy frozen dessert established in 1969 in New York[29]<br />Sherbet: 1–2% milk fat and sweeter than ice cream.<br />Sorbet: fruit puree with no dairy products<br />Snow cones, made from balls of crushed ice topped with sweet syrup served in a paper cone, are consumed in many parts of the world. The most common places to find snow cones in the United States are at amusement parks.<br />Maple toffee: A popular springtime treat in maple-growing areas is maple toffee, where maple syrup boiled to a concentrated state is poured over fresh snow congealing in a toffee-like mass, and then eaten from a wooden stick used to pick it up from the snow.<br />MELTDOWN PROTECTION FOR ICE CREAM<br />
      • Ice cream should be the last item you put in your shopping cart.
      • Place ice cream in the freezer as soon as possible after purchase.
      • Ice cream in the freezer will maintain its high quality in the refrigerator freezer for about one month.
      • Always keep the cartons tightly closed. Desserts such as ice cream sandwiches or ice cream bars should be placed in rigid containers such as baking pans, then wrapped tightly in foil or sealed in freezer bags.
      • Keep in mind that softening or partial melting produces a coarse texture when the product is frozen. It may also cause the ice cream to shrink in volume. To minimize this problem, take ice cream from the freezer a few minutes before serving and place it in the refrigerator to soften, rather than thaw.
      • To maintain its initial quality, do not freeze melted ice cream.
      CHEESES<br />It is made from milk by forming a curd with the use of acid or the enzyme rennin, and draining the whey.<br />Cheeses are classified on the basis of their manufacturing procedures and ingredients. The basic ingredient in cheese making is milk. Pasteurized milk is used to avoid bacterial hazards. <br />PROCEDURES IN MAKING CHEESE:<br />
      • Coagulating or Curdling Process
      • Coagulating or curdling the milk until it turns into curds and whey is the first step taken when making cheese. Today, cheese is curdled with a bacteria culture and a coagulating enzyme, both of which help to speed the separation of liquids and solids. The curdling process begins by warming the milk until it reaches a bacteria-free temperature. During the warming period, a coloring dye is sometimes added to produce a particular color in the finished product. Once the milk has reached a consistent temperature, the starter culture is added and the milk begins to coagulate into one large curd.
      • Removing the Whey
      • As the milk forms into a huge curd, it is stirred and cut, allowing the whey to drain off. The milk is then reheated and pressed to remove as much whey as possible.
      • Molding and Shaping
      • When the whey removal process is finished, the warm curd is molded or shaped into a cheese. Many cheeses today are shaped by using a cheese wheel or similar mold. The warm curd is poured and pressed into the molding.
      • Salting Process
      • High amounts of salt are added to cheese during or before the process of molding. Salt plays an important role in the formation of the cheeses rind or outer coating. Heavily salted cheeses will develop thick outer coatings, such as that found on swiss cheese.
      • Ripening
      Once the cheese has been molded and salted, it is allowed to ripen. Some cheeses take only two weeks to mature and others can take as long as 7-years. Temperatures remain exact during this time.<br />It is during this period when the rind of the cheese is formed. Some form naturally and others, artificially. Many cheese surfaces are treated with bacteria, alcohol, wax, oils, or water during the maturing phase to enhance flavor and coloring. Washed rind varieties, for example, are washed and brushed regularly to promote an even bacteria growth across the surface and prevent their insides from drying out. Cheddar cheeses are salted and then wrapped with cotton, after which time they are left untouched until they are mature.<br />KINDS OF CHEESE<br />
      • Very hard (grating)- made principally from low- fat cow’s milk
      • Example: Parmesan, Romano, Asiago Old, Sapsago, Spalen
      • Hard Ripened Cheeses- made from pasteurized milk and subjected to the action of the lactic acid bacteria, which brings about the proper acidity of the mixture for curdling.
      Example: Cheddar, Colby, Edam, Gonda, Provolone, and Swiss<br />
      • Semi-soft ripened cheeses- those with moderate content of 35- 45% and a milk fat minimum of 27- 29%
      • Example: Brick, Munster, Port du Salut
      • Soft-unripened cheeses- made from cream or from a mixture of milk; skim milk and concentrated skim milk.
      • Example: Cottage, Cream and Neutchatel (Made from USA)
      • Soft ripened cheeses- made much like semi-soft cheese, but a mold or bacteria culture is used to effect the cure and to develop necessary flavor.
      • Example: Brie, Camembert, and Limburger, Bel Paese, Neutchatel (made from France)
      • Pasta filata- have curds that are very plastic or stretch easily.
      Exmaple: Italian Cheeses like Mozzarella and Provolone<br />
      • Processed cheeses- made form a single type of cheese or they may be blends of different varieties of cheeses at various stage of ripening.
      • Pasteurized process cheese- has a maximum moisture content of 43% and milk fat minimum of 27%
      • Cheese Food- has similar moisture content (44%) but is lower in milkfat (23%)
      • Cold Pack Cheese Food- has the same moisture content but is even lower in fat, 13%
      • Cheese Spread- maximum moisture content is higher (44- 60%) with minimum milkfat of 20%
      CHEESE STORAGE TIPS<br />FOR OPTIMUM flavor, allow cold cheese to warm for 30-minutes before eating. Cheese can be placed on counter top during warming.<br />NEVER store cheese with heavy, strong smelling foods. Cheese will absorb the aroma of what is around it.<br />SOFT cheeses should be wrapped in wax paper and not plastic wrap.<br />
      • CHAPTER 5
      • BUYING PROTEIN- RICH FOODS
      • What are protein and its function?
      Protein is a nutrient needed by the human body for growth and maintenance. Aside from water, protein is the most abundant molecule in the body. Protein is found in all cells of the body and is the major structural component of all cells in the body, especially muscle. This also includes body organs, hair and skin.[2] Proteins also are utilized in membranes, such as glycoproteins. When broken down into amino acids, they are used as precursors to nucleic acid and vitamins. Hormones and enzymes are also formed from amino acids in which they help regulate metabolism, support the immune system and other body functions. Finally, protein is needed to form blood cells. <br />Protein function in exercise<br />Proteins are one of the key nutrients for success in terms of sports. They play a major role in the response to exercise. Amino acids, the building blocks of proteins, are used for building new tissue, including muscle, as well as repairing damaged tissues. Proteins, however, only provide a small source of fuel for the exercising muscles, being used as fuel typically only when carbohydrates and lipid resources are low.<br />FoodAmount ofprotein (grams)fSpirulina 1 cup64Tempeh 1 cup41Dried Parsley 1 cup31Lentils, cooked 1 cup18Black Beans, cooked 1 cup15Tofu, firm 4 oz11Quinoa, cooked 1 cup9Peanut Butter 2 tbsp8Almonds 1/4 cup8Sun-dried Tomato 1 cup8Brown rice, cooked 1 cup5Broccoli, cooked 1 cup4Potato 1 med.4Lambsquarters 1 cup4<br />Since protein plays a vital role in our health, it is very important to choose the right entrée and their ingredients. It is said that red meat is appropriate two or three times a week, but their content of saturated fat makes it wise to limit their frequency and portion sizes when planning meals. In this case, the meal planner could choose other option of protein-rich food to include in the week’s plan. <br />FACTORS IN CHOOSING MEATS AND ALTERNATIVES<br />

The meat colour is ivory or creamy pink, with a firm, fine, and velvety appearance. They are usually slaughtered when they reach 18–20 weeks of age (450-500 lb). <br />Non-formula-fed ("red" or "grain-fed")[4] veal, from calves that are raised on grain, hay, or other solid food, in addition to milk. The meat is darker in colour, and some additional marbling and fat may be apparent. Usually marketed as calf, rather than veal, at 22–26 weeks of age (650-700 lb).<br />Rose veal UK is from calves reared on farms in association with the UK RSPCA's Freedom Food programme. Its name comes from its pink colour, which is a result of the calves being slaughtered at around 35 weeks. <br />Free-raised veal, The veal calves are raised in the pasture, have unlimited access to mother’s milk and pasture grasses. They are not administered hormones or antibiotics. These conditions replicate those used to raise authentic pasture-raised veal. The meat is a rich pink color. Free-raised veal are typically lower in fat than other veal. Calves are slaughtered at about 24 weeks of age.<br />1714500-47625THE LAMB<br />Lamb, mutton, and hogget (UK, New Zealand and Australia) are the meat of domestic sheep. The meat of a sheep in its first year is lamb; that of a juvenile sheep older than 1 year is hogget; and the meat of an adult sheep is mutton.<br />THE PORK<br />Cured- pork or beef that has been processed using heat, salt, and sodium nitrate.<br />Curing alter the flavor and color of the meat. <br />Canned Hams- commonly require refrigeration because they have not been heated to high temperature during canning process. Advantages of canned hams is that the bone has been remove to save space in the can, and apart from this, it is easy to carve into attractive slices when it is served. <br />27209751057910Fresh Pork- in the market, you could often see it on packages bundled at a centralized packaging operation. It makes it easier to see the chops or other cuts in their packages. But there are also some buyers who would request the butcher for a specific thickness, or quantity with the pork. <br />Sausages- different types: fresh, fresh smoked, cooked, cooked smoked, or dry (either semi-dry or dry). <br />Bacon and Canadian Bacon- are cured products that are popular, particularly on breakfast menu or in sandwiches. Canadian Bacon is cured pork tenderloin, contains only about a third of the fat in bacon after each is fried. It does not become crisp enough to crumble into bits for salads.<br />THE POULTRY<br />Poultry is a category of domesticated birds kept by humans for the purpose of collecting their eggs, or killing for their meat and/or feathers. These most typically are members of the superorder Galloanserae (fowl), especially the order Galliformes (which includeschickens, quails and turkeys) and the family Anatidae (in order Anseriformes), commonly known as "waterfowl" (e.g. domestic ducks and domestic geese). Poultry also includes other birds which are killed for their meat, such as pigeons or doves or birds considered to be game, like pheasants. Poultry comes from the French/Norman word, poule, itself derived from the Latin word Pullus, which means small animal.<br />Poultry is the second most widely eaten meat in the world, accounting for about 30% of meat production worldwide, after pork at 38%<br />THE FISH AND SHELLFISH<br />Fish- any gill-bearing aquatic vertebrate (or craniate) animal that lacks limbs with digits. <br />Shellfish- a culinary and fisheries term for exoskeleton-bearing aquatic invertebrates used as food, including various species of molluscs, crustaceans, and echinoderms. Although most kinds of shellfish are harvested from saltwater environments, some kinds are found only in freshwater,<br />Overfishing is a big problem nowadays. The quantity of fish are being depleted at alarming rates. The international government are being directed in controlling the quantities of endangered species that can be caught. Chilean sea bass for example, has an order to be removed from restaurant menus. Abalone harvesting have been banned along the California seacoast, and as well as salmon fishing in waters of the Pacific Northwest and Alaska.<br />THE EGGS<br />-1333580645Eggs are laid by females of many different species, including birds, reptiles,amphibians, and fish, and have probably been eaten by mankind for millennia. Bird and reptile eggs consist of a protective eggshell, albumen (egg white), and vitellus (egg yolk), contained within various thin membranes. Popular choices for egg consumption are chicken, duck, roe, and caviar, but by a wide margin the egg most often humanly consumed is the chicken egg.<br />Egg yolks and whole eggs store significant amounts of protein and choline, and are widely used in cookery. Due to their protein content, the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) categorizes eggs as Meats within the Food Guide Pyramid. Despite the nutritional value of eggs, there are some potential health issues arising from egg quality, storage, and individual allergies.<br />Egg white coagulates, or solidifies, when it reaches temperatures between 144 °F and 149 °F (62.2 °C-65 °C). Egg yolk coagulates at slightly higher temperatures, between 149 °F and 158 °F (65 °C-70 °C). <br />If a boiled egg is overcooked, a greenish ring sometimes appears around egg yolk due to the iron and sulfur compounds in the egg. It can also occur when there is an abundance of iron in the cooking water. The green ring does not affect the egg's taste; overcooking, however, harms the quality of the protein. Chilling the egg for a few minutes in cold water until it is completely cooled prevents the greenish "ring” from forming on the surface of the yolk. Cooking also increases the risk of atherosclerosis due to increased oxidization of the cholesterol contained in the egg yolk. <br />Egg Substitutes- liquid or frozen egg products in which the yolk has been removed from the whites and replaced with engredients that stimulates the character of the yolk.<br />CRITICAL KEYS IN KEEPING PROTEIN-RICH FOOD SAFE:<br />Keeping microorganism populations to an absolute minimum by avoiding contamination from food handlers or unclean surfaces<br />Maintaining temperatures no higher than 40F throughout commercial handling and marketing.<br />STORAGE OF HIGH- PROTEIN FOODS<br />
      • Keeping the desired temperature. (not higher than 40F)
      • Keeping it sealed.
      • Keep it labeled.
      CHAPTER 6<br />BUYING FRUITS AND VEGETABLES<br />ORGANIC- Legally defined as being produced without using growth hormones, antibiotics, or petroleum- based or sewage sludge- based fertilizers.<br />The organic products which come from animals (including milk, egg, meat, and poultry) should not have undergone any of the following treatments:<br />2 TYPES OF FERTILIZERS:<br />1. ORGANIC FERTILIZERS- Organic fertilizers include naturally occurring organic materials, (e.g. manure, worm castings,compost, seaweed, guano), or naturally occurring mineral deposits (e.g. saltpeter).<br />Benefits of organic fertilizer<br />Organic fertilizers have been known to improve the biodiversity (soil life) and long-term productivity of soil, and may prove a large depository for excess carbon dioxide.<br />Organic nutrients increase the abundance of soil organisms by providing organic matter andmicronutrients for organisms such as fungal mycorrhiza, (which aid plants in absorbing nutrients), and can drastically reduce external inputs of pesticides, energy and fertilizer, at the cost of decreased yield.<br />Disadvantages of organic fertilizers<br />Organic fertilizers may contain pathogens and other disease causing organisms if not properly composted<br />Nutrient contents are very variable and their release to available forms that the plant can use may not occur at the right plant growth stage<br />Organic fertilizers are comparatively voluminous and can be too bulky to deploy the right amount of nutrients that will be beneficial to plants<br />More expensive to produce<br />2. INORGANIC FERTILIZERS-Inorganic fertilizer is often synthesized using the Haber-Bosch process, which produces ammonia as the end product. This ammonia is used as a feedstock for other nitrogen fertilizers, such as anhydrous ammonium nitrate and urea. These concentrated products may be diluted with water to form a concentrated liquid fertilizer (e.g. UAN). Ammonia can be combined with rock phosphate and potassium fertilizer in the Odda Process to produce compound fertilizer.<br />

      • Conventional pesticides
      • Ionizing radiation

      PROBLEMS WITH INORGANIC FERTILIZERS:<br />
      • Trace Mineral Depletion
      • Overfertilization
      • High energy consumption
      • Long term sustainability
      INORGANIC VS, ORGANIC <br />Organic fertilizer nutrient content, solubility, and nutrient release rates are typically all lower than inorganic fertilizers One study found that over a 140-day period, after 7 leachings:<br />Organic fertilizers had released between 25% and 60% of their nitrogen content<br />Controlled release fertilizers (CRFs) had a relatively constant rate of release<br />Soluble fertilizer released most of its nitrogen content at the first leaching<br />In general, the nutrients in organic fertilizer are both more dilute and also much less readily available to plants. According to UC IPM, allorganic fertilizers are classified as 'slow-release' fertilizers, and therefore cannot cause nitrogen burn.<br />Organic fertilizers from composts and other sources can be quite variable from one batch to the next. Without batch testing, amounts of applied nutrient cannot be precisely known. Nevertheless they are at least as effective as chemical fertilizers over longer periods of use.<br />Phytochemicals- compounds that may have protective action in the body.<br />GRADES<br />Standard grading for fruits and vegetable is set according to color, shape, defects and texture established by the USDA.<br />4 GRADES DESIGNATION:<br />US FANCY: premium produce<br />US NO.1: chief trading grade<br />US NO. 2: intermediate quality range<br />US NO. 3: lowest commercially useful grade<br />*Nomenclature is a term that applies to either a list of names and/or terms, or to the system of principles, procedures and terms related tonaming - which is the assigning of a word or phrase to a particular object or property<br />BUYING FRESH FRUITS<br />POINTERS IN DETERMINING THE QUANTITY TO BUY (FRUITS)<br />

      CHAPTER 7<br />BUYING GRAINS AND GRAIN PRODUCTS<br />-62738015240<br />PARTS OF A WHOLE GRAIN:<br />
      • Endsoperm- is the tissue produced inside the seeds of most flowering plants around the time of fertilization. It surrounds the embryo and provides nutrition in the form of starch, though it can also contain oils and protein.
      • Bran- is the hard outer layer of grain and consists of combined aleurone and pericarp. 
      • Germ- is the reproductive part that germinates to grow into a plant; it is the embryo of the seed
      • -51435315595Brush-
      ** Pericarp layers<br />The pericarp itself is typically made up of three distinct layers: the exocarp, which is the most-outside layer or peel, the mesocarp, which is the middle layer or pith, and the endocarp, which is the inner layer surrounding the hollowed ovary or the containing seeds<br />** Refined wheat flour- a wheat flour made with the bran and embryo removed from the grain<br />FLOUR<br />TYPES OF FLOUR:<br />All-purpose flour is a blend of hard and soft wheat; it may be bleached or unbleached. It is usually translated as "plain flour." All-Purpose Flour has 8% to 11% protein (gluten) . All-purpose flour is one of the most commonly used.<br />Flour that is bleached naturally as it ages is labeled "unbleached," while chemically treated flour is labeled "bleached." Bleached flour has less protein than unbleached. Bleached is best for pie crusts, cookies, quick breads, pancakes and waffles. Use unbleached flour for yeast breads, Danish pastry, puff pastry, strudel, Yorkshire pudding, éclairs, cream puffs and popovers.Shelf-Life: For cabinet storage, up to 8 months if properly stored in a sealed container or if tightly wrapped, and for refrigerator storage, up to one year.<br />Bread flour is white flour made from hard, high-protein wheat. It has more gluten strength and protein content than all-purpose flour. It is unbleached and sometimes conditioned with ascorbic acid, which increases volume and creates better texture. Bread flour has 12% to 14% protein (gluten). This is the best choice for yeast products.Shelf Life: Several months in a cool, dry cabinet when stored in a sealed container or if tightly wrapped, and up to one year in the freezer.<br />Buckwheat Flour is gluten-free which makes it a good choice for anybody with gluten sensitivities or celiac disease. It is packed with nutrients, readily available, easy to work with and has a nice nutty flavor.<br />Cake flour is fine-textured, soft-wheat flour with high starch content. It has the lowest protein content of any wheat flour, 8% to 10% protein (gluten). It is chlorinated (a bleaching process which leaves the flour slightly acidic, sets a cake faster and distributes fat more evenly through the batter to improve texture. When you're making baked goods with a high ratio of sugar to flour, this flour will be better able to hold its rise and will be less liable to collapse. This flour is excellent for baking fine-textured cakes with greater volume and is used in some quick breads, muffins and cookies. If you cannot find cake flour, substitute bleached all-purpose flour, but subtract 2 tablespoons of flour for each cup used in the recipe.<br />Gluten flour is usually milled from spring wheat and has a high protein (gluten) of 12% to 14%. It is used primarily for diabetic breads, or mixed with other non-wheat or low-protein wheat flours to produce a stronger dough structure.<br />Instant flour (Wondra from Gold Medal) is granular and formulated to dissolve quickly in hot or cold liquids. It will not work as a substitute for all-purpose flour, although there are recipes on the container for popovers and other baked goods. It is used primarily in sauces and gravies.<br />Organic flour is used in the same way as regular flour. It must follow U.S. Department of Agriculture regulations to be labeled "organic." Using this flour is a matter of personal preference.<br />Pastry flour also is made with soft wheat and falls somewhere between all-purpose and cake flour in terms of protein content and baking properties. Pastry flour (also known as cookie flour) has a protein (gluten) of 9% to 10%. Use pastry flour for making biscuits, pie crusts, brownies, cookies and quick breads. Pastry flour makes a tender but crumbly pastry. Do not use it for yeast breads. Pastry flour (both whole-wheat and regular) is not readily available at supermarkets, but you can find it at specialty stores and online. You can try to mimic it by using a 2-to-1 ratio of all-purpose flour to cake flour.<br />Rice Flour - Rice flour (also called Mochiko on Japanese and Pirinç Unu in Turkish) is a form of flour made from finely milled rice. It can be made from either white or brown rice.<br />Self-rising flour, sometimes referred to as phosphated flour, is a low-protein flour with salt and leavening (baking powder) already added. It's most often recommended for biscuits and some quick breads, but never for yeast breads. Exact formulas, including the type of baking powder used, vary by manufacturer. Recipes that call for self-rising flour do not call for the addition of salt or leavening agents.Make your own self-rising flour:  Using a dry measure, measure the desired amount of all-purpose flour into a container. For each cup of all-purpose flour, add 1 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon of salt. Mix to combine.<br />Semolina flour is used in making pasta and Italian puddings. It is made from durum wheat, the hardest type of wheat grown. The flour is highest in gluten. When other grains, such as rice or corn, are similarly ground, they are referred to as "semolina" with the grain's name added, i.e., "corn semolina" or "rice semolina." There are difference grades: (1) Semolina flour is finely ground endosperm of durum wheat.(2) Semolina meal is a coarsely ground cereal like farina.(3) Wheatina is ground whole-grain wheat. (4) Durum flour is finely ground semolina and is grown almost exclusively in North Dakota.<br />Spelt flour is one of the most popular and widely available non-wheat flours. The full name of spelt is Triticum aestivum var. spelta. Spelt flour has a nutty and slightly sweet flavor similar to that of whole wheat flour. It does contain gluten and is a popular substitute for wheat in baked goods. <br />Teff flour - Teff is an ancient and intriguing grain, tiny in size yet packed with nutrition. It is simple to prepare and similar to millet or quinoa in cooking. Teff is a great addition to your diet for nutrition, taste, and variety. Teff is packed with nutrition. It is higher in protein than wheat and has a high concentration of a wide variety of nutrients, including calcium, thiamin and iron. The iron from teff is easily absorbed by the body. Since the grains are so small, the bulk of the grain is germ and brand. It is very high in fiber and is thought to benefit people with diabetes as it helps control blood sugar levels. Teff contains no gluten which makes it a suitable grain for celiacs or people with wheat sensitivities. Due to its nutritional content and energy enhancing properties, it has also gained favor with athletes. <br />Whole-wheat flour (also called graham flour) is made from the whole kernel of wheat and is higher in dietary fiber and overall nutrient content than white flours. It does not have as high a gluten level, so often it's mixed with all-purpose or bread flour when making yeast breads. Whole wheat flour is equivalent to British whole meal flour. Shelf Life: 6 months to one year in the freezer if stored in tightly sealed plastic containers or if tightly wrapped. It will keep for only a few months if stored in a cabinet. Due to the presence of the wheat germ, resulting in unsaturated oil content that is higher than refined flour. The potential for rancidity is greater if whole-wheat flour is kept for long periods and particularly if it is not stored under refrigerated conditions. It is best to store whole-wheat flour in a tightly sealed container in the refrigerator or freezer.<br />** Wheat gluten is a protein complex formed from gliadin and glutenin during dough formation.<br />ENRICHMENT<br />Enriched flour is flour with specific nutrients returned to it that have been lost while it was prepared. <br />According to the FDA, a pound of enriched flour must have the following quantities of nutrients to qualify:<br />
      • 2.9 milligrams of thiamin,
      • 1.8 milligrams of riboflavin,
      • 24 milligrams ofniacin,
      • 0.7 milligrams of folic acid, and
      • 20 milligrams of iron.
      The first four nutrients are B vitamins. Calcium also may be added at a minimum of 960 milligrams per pound.<br />BREAD<br />It is a staple food prepared by cooking a dough of flour and water and often additional ingredients. Doughs are usually baked, but in some cuisines breads are steamed (e.g.,mantou), fried (e.g., puri), or baked on an unoiled skillet (e.g., tortillas). It may be leavened or unleavened. Salt, fat and leavening agents such as yeast and baking soda are common ingredients, though bread may contain other ingredients, such as milk, egg, sugar, spice, fruit(such as raisins), vegetables (such as onion), nuts (such as walnuts) or seeds (such aspoppy). Referred to colloquially as the "staff of life", bread has been prepared for at least 30,000 years.<br />TYPES OF BREAD:<br />White bread is made from flour containing only the central core of the grain (endosperm).<br />Brown bread is made with endosperm and 10% bran. It can also refer to white bread with added colouring (often caramel colouring) to make it brown; this is commonly labeled in America as wheat bread (as opposed to whole wheat bread).[8]<br />Wholemeal bread contains the whole of the wheat grain (endosperm and bran). It is also referred to as "whole grain" or "whole wheat bread", especially in North America.<br />Wheat germ bread has added wheat germ for flavoring.<br />Whole grain bread can refer to the same as wholemeal bread, or to white bread with added whole grains to increase its fibre content, as in "60% whole grain bread".<br />Roti is a whole-wheat-based bread eaten in South Asia. Chapatti is a larger variant of roti. Naan is a leavened equivalent to these.<br />Granary bread is made from flaked malted wheat grains and white or brown flour. The standard malting process is modified to maximise the maltose or sugar content but minimise residual alpha amylase content. Other flavour components are imparted from partial fermentation due to the particular malting process used and to Maillard reactions on flaking and toasting.<br />Rye bread is made with flour from rye grain of varying levels. It is higher in fiber than many common types of bread and is often darker in color and stronger in flavor. It is popular in Scandinavia, Germany, Finland, the Baltic States, and Russia.<br />Unleavened bread or matzo, used for the Jewish feast of Passover, does not include yeast, so it does not rise.<br />Sourdough bread is made with a starter.<br />Flatbread is often simple, made with flour, water, and salt, and then formed into flattened dough; most are unleavened, made without yeast or sourdough culture, though some are made with yeast.<br />BREAKFAST CEREALS<br />

      SEMOLINA PRODUCTS<br />Semolina (sem oh LEEN ah) [Alteration of Italian semolino, diminutive of semola, bran, from Latin simila, fine flour, ultimately of Semitic origin.]<br />1. A hot breakfast cereal made of the endosperm of soft wheat<br />2. A wheat product cooked and used primarily for baby food and the elderly<br />3. Any coarse ground grain, i.e. rice semolina, corn semolina<br />4. Gritty by-product the flour made from durum wheat used primarily in making pasta<br /> <br />Couscous (KOOS-koos) [French, from Arabic kuskus, from kaskasa, to pulverize; Berber, k'seksu, of Semitic roots.]<br />1. A hand rolled pasta made of semolina popular in  the Maghreb countries (Morrocco, Tunisia, Algeria)<br />2. A dish of the same name in which couscous is prepared and steamed over a soup or stew primarily of chicken or lamb with vegetables<br />Semolina is the endosperm or heart of the durum wheat kernel - a hard wheat variety with very high gluten content and high protein to carbohydrate ratio. Durum wheat is more coarsely ground than other flours.  The milling process separates the endosperm from the rest of the grain. <br /> <br />Durum flour is finely ground semolina (endosperm).  It's amber colour is what imparts the rich yellow typical of semolina pasta which is produced industrially by extruding or forcing the firm dough through metal dies to create the many shapes available.  It produces a very resilient product that can stand up to the pasta making process and retain its shape in cooking, even if overcooked. <br />Couscous is made from durum wheat semolina before it is ground even finer to make durum flour and is a unique pasta favoured in the Maghreb (Morocco, Tunisia, Algeria).   It also refers to a dish of the same name in which the grains of semolina are prepared in several steps consisting of dampening the grains with handfuls of water and working them between the hands to break up clumps into ever smaller granules. Eventually these granules are placed in a couscousiere, a two part pot containing the couscous in the upper part that has fine holes in its bottom.  This is set over the lower part in which a delicious soup usually of chicken or lamb with vegetables is cooked. Couscous, the dish, can also be made of cracked wheat.<br />CHAPTER 8<br />BUYING OTHER FOODS<br />FATS AND OILS<br />Excessive consumption of fats and oil can lead to various health problems.

Silver<br />a. Sterling Silver- often characterized as pure silver. The price of sterling silver is higher than silver plate because of its greater silver content. Oftentimes, they add small amount of copper in this type of flatware. <br />b. Silver Plate- made of electroplating individual pieces of flatware that have been stamped from an inexpensive but durable metal. <br />2. Stainless Steel- it does not tarnish unlike silver flatwares. This is a hard metal that makes it particularly suited to crafting simple designs. Most stainless steel flatware creates a less formal appearance than silverwares. It requires normal washing procedures for it cleaning. <br />3. Gold- Colored Flatware<br />a. Dirilyte- a gold-colored metal that is an alloy of aluminum, copper and nickel. An attractive choice to go with porcelain trimmed with gold. <br />b. Vermeil- a gold-plated flatware containing some gold in the alloy. <br />What is an alloy?  It is a homogenous mixture or metallic solid solution composed of two or more elements<br />DINNERWARE- is the general term for the dishes used in serving and eating food, including plates and bowls. In British English the term crockery is used, and the term dishware is not widely understood.<br />FACTORS TO CONSIDER IN SELECTING DINNERWARES<br />1. Cost<br />2. Durability<br />3. Design Features<br />OTHER SELECTION FACTORS:<br />1. Open Stock<br />2. Coupe Design<br />3. Glassware and Flatware to be used<br />TYPES OF DINNERWARE:<br />1. Porcelain- Hard, bone, and soft china made from slightly different materials and fired to high temperature. It is also known as china. <br />PROCESS OF MAKING PORCELAIN<br />1. Grinding<br />2. Washing<br />3. Mixing of ingredients. Ingredients are mixed with water to form “slip.”<br />a. Bone Porcelain- made from kaolin, feldspar, and bone ash (calcium phosphate). The bone ash helps in fusing the dinnerware during firing. It gives pleasingly soft, rather than brittle, appearance, and also promotes the translucency and durability that are desired in hard paste porcelain. Soft porcelains are characterized by their creamy color and soft look and made from white- firing clays mixed with fusible silicate such as frit of glass, sand, or finely ground china. <br />b. Underglazed Porcelain- this Underglazed porcelain can be identified by a slight roughness of the glaze above the design. Designs are likely to have soft rather than sharp outlines.<br />c. Overglazed Porcelain- in this type of porcelain, the glaze is applied and fired before the design is applied and the piece is fired again. The second firing is at lower temperature than is used for underglazed porcelain. It has an advantage when it comes to the design and ease in manufacturing. But then its overglazing could have possible damage to the design details because of the greater exposure of the design and the need to firing to fuse the design into the glaze. <br />What is overglazing? It is the method of design application used most commonly today. <br />2. Stoneware- dinnerware that is usually informal and heavy. Slightly porous texture imparts a casual mood to the table setting. <br />3. Earthenware- is a rather broad category embracing a variety of products. Ironstone is fine hard earthenware with good handling characteristics and a fine appearance. Earthenware has no set of formula materials, but it is characterized best as mixtures of clay. It is typically less massive in appearance and weight than stoneware.<br />4. Other Materials- other dinnerware are made with plastic. The characteristics of plastic dishes are softer than ceramic tableware. Some could withstand high temperatures in dishwashers. Plastic dishes are susceptible to by sharp knives. Stainless steel, pewter, and silver are also possible choices for dinnerware. Pewter is a malleable metal alloy, traditionally 85–99% tin, with the remainder consisting of copper, antimony, bismuth and lead. This type of dinnerware is easy to maintain. It is relatively modest in cost and attractive designs. Enamelware offers opportunity for different color choices. Its greatest limitation is its susceptibility to chipping. Chipped enamelware detracts greatly from bold, contemporary look. Sometimes wood can also be used as a material in dinnerware. But its uses are limited to salad bowls or liners.<br />CARE OF DINNERWARE: <br />1. Should be handled carefully<br />2.

      • Alcoholic beverages- blot excess liquid with an absorbent towel and soak in cool water. Vinegar rinses as 15 minute intervals may be used for stubborn stains.
      • Meat drippings and blood- blot the excess and soak in cold water. Rub by hand with a detergent until the stain is removed before subjecting it to normal laundering.
      • Candle wax- solidifies the wax with ice and then uses a dull table knife to scrape off the extra wax. Then sandwich the waxy area of the cloth between layers of paper towels and press with a warm iron. The heat of the iron will soften the wax, permitting it to be absorbed by the paper towels.
      • Chocolate and cocoa- wash and scrub the stain in cold water, using a detergent. Follow this treatment with washing in hot water.
      • Coffee- rinse well with cold water. Remove any remaining stain by scrubbing the spot by hand, using cold water and liquid detergent. Rinse this out and then pour boiling water through the cloth into the sink, holding the container of water approximately water through the cloth into the sink, holding the container of water approximately 2 feet above the cloth. Care must be taken to avoid splashing hands with the boiling water.
      • Cream- before washing in cold water, scrape off any excess. A hot water washing with detergent is the final step.
      • Egg- follows the procedure used for removing cream.
      • Fruit- wash the spot with cold water before second washing in hot water. Persistent stains can be treated with bleach if the fabric can handle this treatment without damage.
      • Gum- Chill thoroughly with ice and carefully scrape off as much as possible with a dull table knife. Cleaning fluid probably will be needed to sponge the area before it is washed.
      • Mustard- treats with liquid detergent before rinsing in cold water. Follow with a washing in hot soapy water.
      • Rust- dip affected area in solution consisting of a tablespoon of oxalic acid crystals in a cup of very hot water. Continue dipping the fabric until the spots disappear.

Readily Available means: All required food components, in amounts sufficient to offer each participant and supervising adult a full portion of each food item, must be available.
      Family style meal service allows participants to make choices in selecting foods and the size of the initial servings. Participants should initially be offered the full required portion of each meal component, but may choose less. <br />All required meal components are placed on the table at the same time. <br />Participants may serve themselves from serving dishes that are on the table.<br />Adults supervising the meal help those participants who are not able to serve themselves.<br />Participants are allowed to make choices selecting foods and in the size of the serving. <br />A supervising adult is seated at each table to actively encourage participants. The supervising adult offers the food item again later in the meal if participants initially refuse the food or take a very small portion.
