Standardized Recipes—Scale and Cost – Sustainable Purchasing and Controlling Costs
Week 2-Assignment 1: Standardized Recipes—Scale and Cost
Assignment Overview
For this assignment, you will build on what you have learned for the week and on work you did in W1 Assignment 2. We begin this assignment by standardizing, then scaling, and then costing out one recipe. You will repeat this process in Weeks 3 and 4, with a total of 5 recipes done by the end of the course.
Assignment Description
There are several steps and templates for this assignment. The videos will help you to complete this task.
Step 1: Choose One Recipe
Using the menu from your W1 Assignment 2, pick one entrée recipe. The recipe should include at least three ingredients and not be a ready-made product that just needs to be heated and served. You can use a recipe from any source; however, you will need to provide a copy of it. If the recipe is missing information such as the yield, you should pick another one. If you want some inspiration for recipes, explore the Foundations of Professional Cooking: A Global Approach textbook for inspiration.
Step 2: Complete Standardized Recipe Form
Using the template AI New Standardized Recipe Card, find the tab labeled “First Original Recipe.” Take your recipe from Step 1 and fill in the standardized form. Make sure you include all of the information, especially the measurements. If the original recipe lacks a measurement such as “to taste,” try to estimate it.
Please watch this video for assistance—you have just standardized your first recipe.
Step 3: Scale the Recipe for Hundred Servings
Next, we need to scale the recipe, that is, we need to increase the amounts so that the recipe serves one hundred people. For this step, open up the tab labeled “First Expanded Recipe Card.” Copy the ingredients and method section to this new tab. Then, figure out the new quantities needed for each ingredient to serve one hundred people. Save the file using the following naming convention: W2_A1_LastName_FirstInitial_Recipes.xls.
Step 4: Cost Out the Recipe
In this step, you need to cost out the recipe. Open up the template “Recipe Cost Sheet.” Using the expanded version of the standardized sheet, copy all of the ingredients to the cost sheet. Then, using Food Purchasing Order Guide, calculate the cost of the recipe. You can use worksheet, if needed, for interim calculations. If you have an ingredient that is not in the Food Purchasing Order Guide, you will need to find the information. Include a source for all of the ingredients’ pricing information. Finally, assign this dish a menu price—it can be anything to complete the calculations. Save this file as W2_A1_LastName_FirstInitial_Costs.xls.
Step 5: Submit Required Items
• A copy of the original recipe along with its source.
• The template with the original recipe standardized and scaled to serve a hundred people.
• The template with the one hundred–serving recipe costed out.
For this week, submit the assignment to the Discussion Area by Thursday, July 2, 2015. Return and help two of your fellow students with words of inspiration, critique, or other advice by the end of the week.
