Introduction

GCSE Catering Statement of the problem Your uncle is the manager of a pub and is looking for a selection of food suitable for a bar type environment and would like you to decide on this. Menu chosen (Final) Rice with peas and chick pea curry. Pizza, chips and a garden salad. White chocolate and hazelnut brownie. Reasons for choice I investigated what people enjoy eating in a bar type environment by asking some adults to go into different pubs, make notes on what was on the menu, ask people what food they would like to eat at the bar and also if they would like to see any changes in food offered to them at that particular bar. The majority of people said that they would like to see more different products such as vegetarian food on offer because they usually found food such as steaks and beef burgers. From this, I decided to make my menu vegetarian based. As I analysed the food that was offered at the bar, I gathered that the food is usually not formal. After a couple of weeks of analysing some menus, I realised that there was not a wide selection of different desert type foods. I have then decided to include one dessert dish in my menu. ...read more.

Conclusion

Time management, preparation, cooking and serving. Throughout the practical I found that I managed my time well and did not waste an time. I was pleased with my preparation as this helped me to quickly organise myself and get as quickly into cooking as possible. My cooking was also a successful part of this project as everything came out well and I attempted to improve the food to make it better than the last each time. I still feel that my choice of dishes was good as they demonstrated good cooking skills as well as producing a good outcome for the bar. Customers are able to choose finger food such as brownie or just chips. The serving of food also went well as all dishes looked very appetising and all were planned to be ready together so one did not go cold while the other was still cooking. Overall, I was very pleased with the outcome of this project. I allowed four people, as a taste panel, to test the food that I had cooked in a pub and overall the response was positive. They stated that the food was easy to eat in that environment and that was a good choice when considering vegetarianism. If I was able to do the cook again, I would try to include a starter dish so that if there are people that want to eat a proper meal there, they would have the option. ?? ?? ?? ??
