                OTHER VERY IMPORTANT INFORMATION

    When students are absent, any missing work, tests, quizzes or labs must be made up within five
     school days. It is your responsibility to ask the teacher what you missed. If you do not make up the
     work, the grade will be a zero for the task.

    Food labs can be made up by either preparing the recipe that was made in class at home or by
     summarizing an article approved by the teacher. Students will complete a lab make-up sheet, have a
     parent/guardian sign it and bring a small sample of the food to school, or an article that has been
     approved by the teacher can be read, summarized, and turned in. All lab make-ups are to be
     completed within 5 days upon returning to school. No more than 3 labs can be made up at home.
     More than 3 labs missed can be made up through alternate academic assignments.

    Homework & Projects will only be accepted up to 5 days late. Assignments which are turned in late
     will be reduced by 10% each day that it is late, with a maximum of 5 days late and 50% reduction.
     No work will accepted after 5 days, and the grade earned would be a zero.

    PLEASE NOTE: There may be occasions where it will be necessary for you to cook at home and
     bring a sample to school. The samples may be shared with the class, eaten by you or taken home.



☺The teacher can be available for extra help at various times. Please make
     arrangements for this ahead of time.

                                  Classroom Expectations:

1.   Respect yourself, your teacher, your classmates, and all classroom property.
2.   Be on time for class, take your seat immediately and be ready to work.
3.   No cell phones or iPods visible in the classroom.
4.   No behavior that will hinder learning or create a hostile, unsafe classroom.

                                        Classroom Policies:

    Lateness Policy – You must be inside the classroom when the bell rings. ANYTHING after
     the bell, you will need a pass. If you have no pass, you will be marked as late.

    Detentions are issued and participation points are taken off for foul language and
     inappropriate or dangerous behaviors.

    Restroom use requires that you ask permission and write out your own pass that includes
     your name, date, and time. I will sign your pass and then you sign out on the sign out sheet.
     You MUST sign back in when you return from the restroom.

    Clean Up everything before you leave the classroom. If anything is left dirty or not put
     away, it will cost points in the clean portion of the lab grade.

    End-of-Class Dismissal is determined by the teacher, you are to remain in your seat, not
     standing by the door, until the bell rings.



                                                 ~2~
                                                   Safety First
 At the beginning of EVERY lab, you need to put your hair back, wash your hands, remove loose sweaters and
  jackets, and pull up loose or long sleeves.
 Use EXTREME caution when using the knives; follow all procedures given by the teacher. Keep the blade pointed
  down and close to your side while walking. NEVER point a knife at anyone or use it as a prop in a conversation.
 Chef and paring knives are always to be returned to the teacher. DO NOT put them in the drawers.
 Use EXTREME caution around the stove and oven. They are hot; you can be burned. Stand to the side and use
  potholders every time you take something out of the oven.
 Wipe up ALL spills, on the floor, counter, in the oven (when cooled), and microwave. Use baking spray over the
  trash or sink, not the counter or floor.
 THERE IS TO BE NO FOOLING AROUND IN THE KITCHENS. THIS INCLUDES TOWEL WHIPPING. Doing
  so will result in a zero for the lab, detention and other punitive measures.


                                         General Kitchen Procedures
 Remain in your assigned kitchen during the whole lab. The only exception is to get ingredients and equipment.
  After one warning, you will receive a zero for the lab.
 Take only the required amount of food from the supply table. Measure it there, do not take it to your kitchen. If
  you take more than is necessary, others may not have enough.
 Let the teacher know when your supplies run low. Also alert the teacher to broken equipment or loose handles.
  People can be hurt if the materials are not working properly.
 Conserve towels and dishcloths, use only 1 dishcloth and 2 towels per lab. You will be asked to fold and put towels
  away periodically.
 Keep your jewelry on!! If you must remove it, put it in YOUR pocket or purse. Do not put it in the apron or on any
  classroom surface.
 Before you may leave, your kitchen must be completely cleaned and shut down for the day.
o No garbage can is to be left in the sink.
o The sink has to be washed out and dried with a towel
o The faucet is off and wiped clean.
o The stove is TURNED OFF. Failure to do so could start a fire, and the head cook will lose points for the lab.
o The stovetop and front has to be cleaned off.
o Canisters/containers have to be wiped off and neatly arranged.
o All counters have to be wiped clean and all equipment has to be cleaned and put away in the correct location.
 All equipment or other supplies from the supply table have been returned. DO NOT LEAVE ANY OF THESE
  ITEMS IN YOUR KITCHEN.
 When you leave, make sure your chair is pushed in. If you are the last class of the day, put your chair up on the
  table.


                                             Sanitation Procedures
 ALWAYS wash your hands before starting to cook and whenever you cough, sneeze, blow your nose or return from
  the bathroom.
 Use care with cleaning (counters, utensils, and cutting boards) especially after handling raw meat, poultry, or
  eggs. Certain items need to be sanitized regularly.
 Follow dishwashing guidelines: Use HOT water and soap (2 pumps) to wash all the dishes. The order of
  dishwashing is: glassware, silverware, plates, cooking utensils, and the pots and pans.
 Drain the dishes of excess water before passing them to the dryer.
 Clean all counters, microwaves, stoves, ovens and mixers on a daily basis.


                                             Microwave Procedures
   Never put anything metal in the microwave.
   Never run the microwave empty. If you want to use the timer, use the timer setting.
   Remove any covers carefully to avoid burns.
   Use potholders to remove food containers from the microwave.
   Distribute the heat evenly by stirring the foods after cooking and before serving them.
   Do not heat sealed jars, cans, or bottles in the microwave.

                                         Setting the table
The following guide is a basic set of rules for setting the table. It can be used for setting a formal table as
well as an informal one.

An attractive table adds to the enjoyment of a meal. To set the table, you need a “place setting” for each
person. A place setting is all the items each person needs for eating. This includes the following
appointments (any item used to set a table):

     Dinnerware (plates, cups, saucers, and bowls)
     Glassware (glasses of all shapes and sizes)
     Flatware (forks, spoons, and knives)
     Napkins
     Centerpiece and
     Placemats or tablecloths, optional




How a table should be set is determined in a large part by the serving style. Every family has its own
eating style. There is really no right and wrong way to serve a meal, but there are three traditional serving
styles:

   Family
   Formal
   Buffet




The family style table setting is most appropriate. Food is either:

   Passed around the table for everyone to serve themselves, or
   Portioned out by the head of the family and full plates are served to each family member.




Learn the following tips that deal with eating manners so you won’t be embarrassed!

     Try some of every food served even if you don’t like it or don’t think you will.
     Avoid playing with foods on your plate.
     Ask to have foods passed to you, rather than reaching in front of someone else or across the table.
     Eat quietly with your mouth closed. Wait to speak until you have swallowed any food in your mouth.
     Take small bites. Eat all that you take on your fork or spoon in one bite.
     Look neat and talk about cheerful topics to make mealtimes pleasant.
     Pass food at the table to the left, counter-clockwise.
     Don’t blow on soup to cool it - it is not polite.
     Cut salad with a knife if the pieces are too large to fit in your mouth.
     Use a small piece of bread as a “pusher” to help guide food onto your fork.
     Break off a whole piece of bread or roll into 2 or smaller pieces.
     Leave your silverware on the plate or saucer under a bowl when you have finished.




                                                   ~ 13 ~
The following rules for setting a table correspond to the numbers seen in the table setting
                                              illustration below.




   1.    The flatware, plate, and napkin should be one inch from the edge of the table.
   2.    The plate is always in the center of the place setting.
   3.    The dinner fork is placed at the left of the plate.
   4.    If a salad fork is used, it is placed to the left of the dinner fork.
   5.    The napkin is placed to the left of the fork, with the fold on the right. It can also go
         under a fork, or on top of the plate.
   6.    The knife is placed to the right of the plate with the sharp blade facing in towards the
         plate.
   7.    The teaspoon is placed to the right of the knife.
   8.    If a soupspoon is needed, it is placed to the right of the teaspoon.
   9.    The soup bowl may be placed on the dinner plate.
   10.   The drinking glass is placed at the tip of the knife.
   11.   If a salad plate is used, place it just above the tip of the fork.
   12.   The cup or mug is placed to the top right of the spoons.

 Most nutrition education focuses on what people eat. Yet, what they drink can affect their health as much as food. Liquid calories
count the same as food calories. In the last two decades the average person has added 150 to 300 calories per day to their diets. Half
   of those calories are from liquids. In addition to obesity, the over consumption of high calorie beverages leads to other health
  problems. For example, with young people drinking more soda and less milk, they are at increased risk for osteoporosis. Dental
  health has also been compromised. However, by understanding the nutrition science behind beverage consumption, people can
                                        change their drinking habits and improve their health.
