STANDARD OPERATING PROCEDURE

Oriental Hospitality Consultants – OrientalHospitality.com FOOD & BEVERAGE TASK #: 2.01 DEPARTMENT : Restaurant TASK: Tea JOB TITLE: All Restaurant Staff EQUIPMENT NEEDED: HOW TO DO IT
Agronomy Tea is obtained from the leaves of the plant 'Camelia Sinesis' or 'Thea Sinesis' which flourishes on the countries with heavy rainfall. The plant is an evergreen tropical bush with stiff shiny and pointed green leaves. The plant is ready to yield leaves after about 3 years of growth. The plant may yield for 25 to 50 years depending on the growing conditions. First the tea plant is grown in nurseries either from the seeds the shoot or the leaf itself. It is then planted in rows in rich fertile soil. The shrubs are kept down to a convenient height for plucking by constant pruning; this is known as table top. Leaves are hand plucked from new shoots and about 6000 leaves make about a pound of tea. One bush is capable of providing several grades of tea at the same time although in most cases only the bud and the first two leaves of the plant are picked providing the finest tea. When more leaves are plucked it is known as coarse plucking. Constitution: The important constituents that affect the quality of the brew are; caffeine for it's stimulating effect, tannins and related compounds that affect the body and colour, and essential oils that provide flavour. Tea contains 1.5% to 3.0% of caffeine, and tannins in the form of poly phenolic compounds. Tea also contains minute quantities of vitamin B (Riboflavin).The high intake of water along with tea increases the nutritional intake of tea. Processing &Harvesting; During harvesting the leaves are piled over each other which causes dampness that causes bacterial reaction. This bacterial reaction destroys part of the tannic acid present and also reduces the starch and sugar content to a negligible amount. After this first step leaves are processed in different ways to produce various qualities of tea from the same leaf. The three major classes of tea would include; (a) Black tea: The processing would include the following steps, -Plucking of leaves, wherein only the bud and the first two leaves are plucked for the finest quality. Lower qualities might be made out of the other leaves. -Withering the leaves to soften them and to partially dry them . -Passing of the withered leaves under rollers to rupture the cell walls and release the enzymes and juices which encourages the absorption of oxygen. -Fermenting the rolled leaves by exposing them to the air at about 27o C for a period of 4 to 5 hrs. -Drying the fermented leaves in ovens at about 93o C which inactivates the enzymes and reduces leaf moisture to about 4%. This drying step is known as firing. The fermentation process in case of black tea produces a varnish that coats the leaf. -Caramelized sugars are then added to the leaf to give color aroma and other characteristic flavours. -The leaves are then sifted to give "small/broken leaf" or "leaf" grades.

. Oolong tea: The procedure of preparation of oolong tea is similar to that of black tea till the fermentation stage. Oolong tea is partially fermented and produced generally in China. Fermentation is checked soon after it has begun to develop, after which the tea is alternately rolled and fired. It is then sent to a factory where it is once again fired before it is packed. Unlike other teas only one grade of Oolong tea is made which is considered to be of a very high quality. The colour is copper black with a mild flavour between black and green tea. Green tea: Here the leaves left to wither as soon as plucked until no moisture is left. The whole leaves are then steamed and rolled, resulting in green grey balls. By processing whole the leaves are able to retain their enzymes that prevent them from losing their flavour. The result is a pale yellow green tea with a distinct unusual flavour. The name gunpowder green was given by the British colonists in China who named it for it's likeness in color and form to that of lead ball shot. Classification and grading of tea: Green Oolong Black Mate(hollybush)

Gunpowdergreen Formosa oolong peach blossom Taiwan oolong(fruity flavour) Whole leaf Brokenleaf Instant broken leaf Fannings Dust Orange pekoe Pekoe

Flowery orange pekoe

Size and appearance are the main criteria. The two main grades are; whole leaf and broken leaf which are generally used for black teas and are further sub divided.  The terms Pekoe and flowery pekoe describe teas containing only the finest tea buds  Orange Pekoe consists of the leaves directly under the bud. By Pekoe we understand the leaves that have come from the second or third leaves below the bud.  Sauchong first comes from the third leaf below the leaf bud.It comes from the third leaf when it is long and coarse.  Sauchong are other large leaves. So we see that Orange pekoe is not really a grade, but rather a type of leaf. GRADES OF BLACK TEA There are more than 3,000 varieties of tea. They take their names from the districts in which they grow. Leaf Grades After the broken grades have been sifted out, what remains are the large leaves. In brewing, flavor and color come out of leaf grades more slowly than out of broken grades. Leaf grades are popular in continental Europe and in South America. There are three kinds: Orange pekoe has long, thin, wiry leaves that sometimes contain bud leaf. They make a light- or pale-colored liquid. Orange pekoe is simply a size; the term does not indicate flavor or quality.

Pekoe has shorter leaves than orange pekoe, and they are not as wiry. The liquid generally has more color. Souchong has round leaves that make a pale liquid. Broken Grades The smaller, broken leaves of the broken grades make up about 80 percent of the total crop. They make a darker, stronger tea than leaf grades and are the only kind used in tea bags. Broken orange pekoe is much smaller than the leaf grades. It usually contains bud leaf, the mainstay of a blend. Broken pekoe is slightly larger than broken orange pekoe with somewhat less color. It is useful as filler in a blend. Fannings : Is much smaller than broken pekoe Souchong. Its main virtues are quick brewing and good color. Dust is the smallest grade, useful for a quick-brewing, strong cup of tea. It is only used in blends of similar-size leaf, generally for catering purposes. GREEN TEA AND OOLONG These teas are not graded into leaf sizes. Oolong, a Chinese word meaning "black dragon," is a partly fermented, greenish-brown tea. Hyson is a green tea with leaves rolled or twisted lengthwise. The early crop is young hyson. Gunpowder is a green tea with leaves rolled into small round pellets. Some common terms used while grading teas. Tippy: Tip of tea leaves intact. Golden: indicates golden brown tips. Flowery: A particularly flowery aroma. Orange Pekoe: Particularly tender leaves.

Teas can also be classified region wise. Chinese teas: Chinese green tea: Most familiar as the tea served in Chinese restaurants. These are all mild and have a pleasant fruity flavour.Eg: Gunpowder green. Chinese oolong tea: In general they are stronger than green teas but milder than black teas. Eg: Keemun: a delicate and aromatic tea from north China low in tannins with a deep rich flavour. Lapsang Sauchang: A large leaf tea that is rich and full bodied. This has a very distinctive but tarry smoky flavour. Yunnan western: A tea containing high proportion of the youngest leaves, this has a sweet taste & a light golden color. Indian teas: All teas produced in India are usually black teas. Assam: One of the classic Indian teas is grown in the Brahmaputra valley in North-East India.The taste is strong and malty. The best of Assam tea contain the tips(buds) and is known as "Tippy Assam". Darjeeling tea: Noted for it's distinctive delicate flavour. The small broken leaf produces a light golden drink with a subtle flavour. Bushes from the foot of the Himalayas produce tea with a muscatel flavour of grapes. The most important variety is Darjeeling broken orange pekoe, which is sometimes called the "champagne of tea". Ceylon teas: Tea produced in SriLanka are all black teas. Dimbula: Grown at altitudes of 2km above sea level. Like most Ceylon tea it has rich color and flavour. Orange pekoe and broken orange pekoe are the usual tea grades. Kandy: It has a full bodied quality and strength appealing to those who especially like a robust brew

Japanese tea: These are quite different from Chinese teas: Sencha: These Long green leaves make a bright, light easy to drink tea, that is good for drinking. Sencha Brancha: Combination of tea and rice that results in a nutty flavour. Flavoured teas; In addition to various types of teas, there is also a wide range of flavoured teas, flavoured with essences, oils, fruits, etc. The Chinese pioneered the flavouring of tea. The flowers are dried with the tea so that the delicate flavour permeates through. Fruit and flower teas are best appreciated on their own, without milk, lemon and sometimes even sugar. Jasmine tea: Traditionally served in dim-sum dishes. This is a classic Chinese tea. It is a green tea, exotically scented with the addition of real jasmine flowers. Rose pauchang tea: Made by interspersing flower petals with tea leaves during drying. Makes a pale soothing tea. Rose Conyon is another rose scented tea. Crysanthemum: Medium strength black China tea, blended with Crysanthemum leaves. Orchid tea: This is obtained by blending a semi-fermented Oolong tea with crushed Orchid flowers. It is considered to be the tea of connoisseurs. Lychee tea: It is blended by the husks of the lychee fruit. Yerba Mate and Other "Teas" Almost any hot drink that is not coffee or chocolate may be called tea nowadays. The leaves of several other kinds of plants are used to brew drinks. Yerba mate, or Paraguay tea, is made from the leaves of a species of holly found in Brazil and Paraguay. The Indians of North Carolina prepared a tea called yaupon from the leaves of another hollylike tree or shrub. In Peru and Bolivia there is a tea made from the dried leaves of the cacao tree. Trinidad tea is made from the leaves of the pimento, or allspice, tree. On the American frontier every family was familiar with sassafras tea. It was made from the aromatic roots and bark of the sassafras tree. There is today a great variety of herbal teas made from a number of different plants. Some of them are considered to be healthful, with perhaps medicinal effects

Blending of teas: Teas are blended by mixing the leaves in a machine consisting of a revolving drum fitted with veins. Satisfactory blending requires about 16 revolutions. The drums are half-filled with leaves, ranging in weight from 300 pounds (136 kilograms) to 5,000 pounds (2,265 kilograms), depending on the size of the machine.

The drums are half-filled with leaves, ranging in weight from 300 pounds (136 kilograms) to 5,000 pounds (2,265 kilograms), depending on the size of the machine. Tea Innovations At the fair was the young Englishman Richard Blechynden, who represented the tea interests of India and Ceylon (now Sri Lanka). It was his job to popularize tea drinking in the United States. The weather that summer turned quite hot, and Blechynden watched as people passed by his booth to others that were serving cold drinks. In desperation he filled tall glasses with ice and poured hot tea over it. Iced tea was an immediate success. The invention of tea bags happened at about the same time. Thomas Sullivan of New York City owned a tea and coffee business. In sending samples of tea to customers, he decided it would be cheaper to sew the tea inside small cloth bags instead of sealing it in tins. To his surprise, orders for the tea bags poured in. In the United States tea bags are now made of a special filter paper, and the manufacturing and packing of them has become an industry in itself. Instant, or powdered, tea has become common on grocery shelves along with bulk and bag teas. Green tea powders and soluble tea extracts have been used in Japan for many years. Instant teas offer greater convenience than ordinary leaf tea; they are easy to prepare and leave no leaf sediment. Instant tea powder may be produced by evaporating already prepared tea until a dry powder remains. Another method evaporates tea directly from a fermented leaf at a low temperature. Instant tea: The manufacture of instant tea is in several ways like that of instant coffee. However the state of technology is not as advanced as in the state of coffee. Instant tea processing begins with the extraction of the selected tea blend. Generally black tea type is used, one chosen for reddish color relative freedom from haze and strong flavour when brewed. About ten parts of water are combined with one part of tea leaves by weight in extractors and extraction is carried out between 60oC and 100oC for about ten minutes. The final extract contains about 4% solids which accounts for about 85% of the soluble solids in the leaves. This dilute extract is concentrated for more efficient dehydration; just before concentration, aromatics are distilled from the extract with specially designed flavour recovery equipment. The dramatized extract is then concentrated in low temperature evaporators to between 25% to 55% solids for subsequent drying. Instant tea is primarily dried in spray driers and low temperature vacuum driers. Freeze dried tea offers more advantages.

WHY To give the correct Explanation and detailed Guidance about Champagne

The traditional Methode Champenoise used in making Grandin Sparkling Wine is a process strictly controlled by French law. The words Methode Champenoise” Cannot be used on a bottle of French sparkling wine, Unless the stipulated procedure is followed: 1. The grapes are pressed and the juice must be used for fermentation to make still wine, this is traditionally a white wine without carbonation. 2. The still wine is bottled and to each bottle the “dosage”, a small amount of unfermented must and yeast is added. The bottle is corked and the dosage causes the wine to ferment again in the bottle. The bottles are stacked lying down for 8-12 months during the second fermentation. 3. A by-product of the fermentation is carbon dioxide Gas which cannot escape from the sealed bottle and goes into the solution with the wine. 4. Another by-product is sediment. It is removed by stacking the bottles upside down and turning them by a quarter every few days until the sediment reaches the cap, this turning process is called “riddling”. 5. The neck and cap are dipped into a solution, which freezes the sediment into a plug. The plug is “discorged” and the bottle is topped off with a little finished sparkling wine and finally corked. This process is required by French law to take a minimum of 9 months; Grandin takes a total of 12 months Grandin started making Sparkling Wine with his Invented and approved Methode Champenoise in 1886. and is still made that way till today. Blind tastings were conducted by Arthur D. Little Company among 400 sparkling wine drinkers in New York, Chicago and Los Angeles. The results were impressive: Grandin was preferred over leading Spanish Methode Champenoise ( Freixenet & Cordoniu ) Importing wine category leaders. Grandin was preferred over Moet Chandon, theiImporting Champagne category leader. Grandin was at parity with Korbel, a leading producer of U.S. Methode Champenoise

WHY
To give proper guidance and suggestions for choosing the right wine For selection as preference given.

 Chardonnay The worlds most popular and widely planted premium white Grape variety and the one whose name has become almost a Synonym for dry white wine, is surprisingly hard to define. The flavour of any example will depend enormously on the climate, soil and the particular type of clone. Burgundy the best California examples (Kistler, Peter Michael, Sonoma Cutter ), taste of butter and hazelnuts, lesser New World efforts are often sweet and simple and often very melony ( a flavour which comes from the clone ). Australians range from subtle buttery pineapple to oaky tropical fruit juice. Petaluma, Giaconda, Coldstream Hills and Leeuwin show how it can be done. New Zealand‟s efforts are tropical, too, But lighter and fresher ( Te Mata, Cloudy Bay ) Elsewhere Chile is beginning to hit the mark, as in South Africa & Jordan. In Europe, look around southern France ( James Herrick ), Italy ( Gaja ), Spain, and Easter Europe, but beware of watery cheaper versions.  Chenin Blanc Loire variety with naturally high acidity that makes it ideal for fresh sparkling, dry and luscious honeyed wines, also raw staff like unripe apples. Most California Chenins are semi – sweet and ordinary South Africans call it “Steen” and use it for cheap, dry and luscious sweet wines. There are few good Australians ( Moondah Brook ) or New Zealanders( Milton)  Gewuerztraminer Outrageous, oily-textured staff that smells of parma violets and tastes of lychee fruit. At its best in Alsace ( Zind Humbrecht, Leon Beyer, Schlumberger, Fallet ) where identically labeled bottles can vary greatly in their level of Sweetness. Wines that guarantee luscious sweetness will be labeled as either Vendange Tardive or the intensely sweet – Selection de Grains Nobles. Try examples from Germany, Chile, New Zealand and Italy too.

Fleshy limey &capable of ageing  Marsanne A classic, flowery, lemony variety used in the Rhone in Hermitage, Australia (Chateau Tahblik & Mitchelton ) Southern France from Mas de daumas Gassac, Switzerland from Provins and innovative wines from California. At its Best, young or after 5 – 6 years.  Muscat The only variety whose wines actually taste as they are made of grapes, rather than some other kind of fruit or Vegetable. In Alsace, southern France and northeast Italy it is used to make dry wines. Generally though it Performs best as sparkling wine ( Moscatos and Astis from Italy and Clairette de Die Tradition from France ) and as sweet fortified wine. Look out for Beaume de Venise and Rivesaltes in southern France, Moscatel de Setubal in Portugal, Moscatel de Valencia in Spain and Liqueur Muscat in Australia.  Pinot Blanc / Pinot Blanco As rich as Chardonnay, but with less fruit. At its worst When over-cropped, it makes neutral wine. At its best However ( also in Alsace ) it can develop a lovely Cashew nut flavor. When well handled it can also do well in Italy, where it is known as Pinot Biancho ( Jermann ) and in Germany, especially in Baden where it is called Grauer Burgunder. Look out for examples from Oregon ( Eyrie ), California and New Zealand.

Today however it has been widely introduced to the Ardeche, Languedoc-Roussillon and California and made with loving care. ( and often over-generous exposure in Oak barrels ). In Eastern Europe, Argentina and particularly Australia ( where Yalumba makes several Good examples ) While examples of affordable Viognier are welcome, most lower-priced efforts are disappointing, because this Is a variety that performs poorly when asked to produce too much wine per acre. Clones of this grape vary widely too.

Barberra A widely planted, wild-berryish Italian variety, at its best in Piedmont, where it is increasingly successful in blends with Nebbiolo and Cabernet. Also good in Argentina, California and Australia. Cabernet Sauvignon King of the Medoc and Graves ( in blends with Merlot ) and top reds from the New World, especially California, Chile and Australia. Eastern Europe and southern France ( Vin de pays ) have good value examples, and Spain is rapidly climbing aboard ( in the Penedes and Navarra ).The hallmark to look for is blackcurrant, though unripe versions taste like weeds and bell peppers. There are also great Italian Cabernets. Good New World Cabernets can smell and taste like fresh mint, but like the best Bordeaux, develop a rich, leathery “cigar box” charcter. Carmenere A peppery-berryish grape once grown in Bordeaux And now almost only found in Chile and Italy. ( Ca del Bosco ) Grenache / Garnacha Freshly ground black pepper is the distinguishing flavour here, sometimes with the fruity tang of sweets. At home in Cotes du Rhone and Chateauneuf-du-Pape, it is also used in Spain ( as Garnacha ) in blends with Tempranillo. There are good “bush” examples from Australia. Malbec Another peppery Bordeaux refugee, used in France ( for Cahors ) the Loire and Italy where it generally produces dull stuff. It shines however in Argentina and is finding a new home in Chile and Australia.

WHY

Merlot The most widely planted variety in Bordeaux and the subject of (enthusiastic over - ) planting in California. In Bordeaux, where in some vintages it performs better than Cabernet Sauvignon, it is at its best in Pomerol, where wines can taste of ripe plums and spice, and in St. Emilion, where the least successful wines show the Merlot‟s less lovable dull and earthy character. Wherever it is made, the naturally thinskinned Merlot should produce softer, less tannic wines than Cabernet Sauvignon ( though some California examples seem to contradict this ) Pinot Noir The wild-rapherryish, plumy and liquoricey grape of red burgundy is also a major component of white and pink Champagne. It makes red and pink Sancerre, as well as light reds in Alsace and Germany (where it Is called “Spaetburgunder” ). Italy makes a few good Examples but for the best modern efforts look to California, Oregon, Australia, Chile, South Africa and especially New Zealand (Martinborough , Felton Road ). Pinotage Almost restricted to South Africa, this cross between Pinot Noir and Cinsaut can - though rarely and only in the hands, such as Kanonkop make berryish young wines that may develop rich gamey-spicy flavours . Poorer examples can be dull and “muddy”. Sangiovese The grape of Chianti, Brunello di Montalcino and a host of popular IGT wines in Italy, not to mention “ new wave” Italian-style wines in California and Argentina. The recognizable flavour is sweet tobacco, wild herbs and berries.

Syrah / Shiraz The spicy, brambly grape of the Northern Rhone ( Hermittage, Cornas etc. ) and the best reds of Australia ( Henschke Hill of grace and Penfolds Grange ) where it is also blended with Cabernet Sauvignon ( just as it was once in Bordeaux ). Marquis de Grinon has a great Spanish example And Isole e Olena makes a fine one in Tuscany. Increasingly successful in California and Washinton State and finally in South Africa. Surprisingly Good too, in both Switzerland and New Zealand. Tempranillo Known under all kind of names around Spain , including Cencibel in Navarra and Tinto del Pais in Ribeira del Duero and Tinta Roritz in Portugal, the grape gives Spanish reds their recognizable strawberry character. Often blended with Garnacha, it works well with Cabernet Sauvignon. So far little is used in the New World, but watch out for examples from Argentina and Australia.



Zinfandel Until recently thought of as California‟s “own” Variety, but now proved (by DNA tests) to be the same variety as the Primitivo in southern Italy. In California it makes rich, spicy, blueberryish reds ( see Turley and Ridge Vineyards ), “ports” and often with a little help from sweet Muscat , sweet pink “ White Zinfandel “. Outside California, Cape Mentelle makes a good example in Western Australia.

WHY
Proper arrangements and explanations are given Wine glasses are clean and polished The labels of the bottles are clearly visible A judgment form to tick off each section is handed out The sommelier or waiter to be professional

The secret of getting maximum pleasure out of wine is to remember that we smell tastes: It is our noses and the nerves high in the brain Behind the nasal cavity that distinguish nuances Of flavour – not our tongues, lips or palates. The mouth detects what is sweet, sour, salty, Bitter, burning, oily or astringent. But the colour and character of a flavour lie in its volatile compounds, which need the nose to apprehend them. Thus the procedure for tasting wine pivots around the moment of inhalation; The first sniff is crucial, since the sense of smell Rapidly wearies.

It needs a long enough stem to keep the hand away from the bowl. Professional tasters often hold the glass by its foot. The thinner the glass, within reason, the better. Wine is tasted vividly from thin glass.

Assuming it isn‟t cloudy (if it is, sent it back ), it will reveal its age and hint at the grape and origin.  Tilt the glass away from you and take a first and Careful look at the precise colour, clarity and visual texture of the wine.  Do this over a piece of white paper and look at the rim of the liquid.  The more watery and brown it is, the older the wine.

Swirl  Vigorously swirl the wine around the glass for a Moment to release any reluctant smells.  Then continue to swirl the wine to volatize its aroma while you concentrate.  The glass should only filled about a fifth of its capacity

Vertical & Horizontal Tastings of the same Wine from different Vintages are known as “ vertical”. Those of different wines of the same Type in a single vintage are known As “horizontal”. Remember: The ideal conditions For a testing are rather unattractively Clinical; a clean, well lit place without the Suggestive power of Atmosphere, without the smell of wine barrels or distraction of friendly chatter – And above all without the chunks of cheese, ham, salami or bread.

TASK #: 2.07 TASK: Tasting Wine EQUIPMENT NEEDED: HOW TO DO IT

WHY

Sniff  You sniff a wine before tasting it for the same reason you sniff a carton of milk before pouring its content into coffee.  The smell can tell you more about a wine than anything else.  When sniffing try to exclude all other thoughts and sniff.. First impressions are crucial and should trigger recognition.  When sniffing, take one long sniff or a few brief ones. Concentrate on whether the wine seems fresh and clean.  What are your first impressions, if the wine is fruity, which fruit does it remind you of. Is it spicy, herbaceous, sweet, dry, rich or lean? Sip Take a generous sip, a third of a mouthful, suck air between your teeth and through the liquid and “Chew” it so it reaches all parts of your mouth. Hold the wine in your mouth for a little longer to release as much flavour as possible Focus on the flavour, same impressions as before, is there just one flavour, or do several contribute to a “complex” overall effect? Now concentrate on the texture of the wine, some like Chardonnay are mouth-coatingly buttery, while others – like Gewuerztraminer are almost oily. Muscadet is a good example with a texture that is closer to water. The final judgment comes when the volatile compounds rise into the upper nasal cavity. Spit


 





The only reason to spit a wine out – unless it is actively repellent – is to remain upright at the end of a lengthy tasting.  On the other hand, if what you want is the taste, swallowing is an indulgence; you should have 90 % of the flavour while the wine was in your mouth. Some tasters swallow a few drops to exercise the texture as the wine passes down the throat.  Pause for a moment after spitting, is the flavour still there ?

Decanting wine

There is much debate about whether and when to decant wine; whether “breathing” is a good thing or not. Vigorous young vintages ( at 10 years, a poor 4-5 years ) Like Red Bordeaux, Cabernets, Red Rhones, Barolo and Barbaresco., Heavy Zinfandels, Australian Shiraz, Portuguese Reds and other similar tannic wines, decant at Least on hour before drinking and experiment with Periods of up to 6 hours. “Young” red burgundy, Pinot Noirs and Spanish wines decant just before serving

1. Wine for decanting needs to be held in apposition near to horizontal as possible. The purpose of a wine basket is to hold a bottle in This position, while it is being opened prior to Decanting it. It should never be used for pouring Wine at the table 2. The corkscrew being used mostly is the Screw pull, which draws the cork up into itself With almost infallible ease. The worm is TeflonCoated, which means the cork can be drawn in a Single, screwing action. 3. Now pour the wine into the decanter in one Continuous movement, holding the bottleneck Over candle light, so that you can watch the Sediment . As soon as it approaches the neck, Stop pouring. 4. A special silver funnel has been devised which Has a perforated strainer in the base and a spout Curved sideways to prevent the wine from Splashing down the neck of the decanter

Beaujolais is the archetype of a light red wine: Made to be drunk young, while it is still lively with fresh, grape flavor. Beaujolais Villages is a better, stronger and tastier selection. Simple young Bordeaux, burgundy and Rhone reds, Cabernet from Anjou and Mondeuse from Savoie should have the same appeal. Similar Wines are now made in the Midi ( Corbieres Minervois, Roussillon St-Chinian ) by the Beaujolais technique of carbonic Maceration and also of most of the popular red grape Varieties: light wines to drink young. In its liveliness and vigour this is perhaps the safest and best All around class of red wine for mealtimes, appetizing with Anything from pate to fruit and often better than a more “serious” or old wine with strong cheese, in mouthfuls rather than sips. For the same reason it is the easiest red wine to drink without food. It is usually best served cool. Ideal dishes include: pates & terrines, (including those made from vegetable),quiches, salads, hamburgers, ham, grilled meats, cheese and soft fruits as raspberries, plums or peaches.  Plain every day or “jug” reds These are unpretentious and anonymous blended wines with little body or flavor. French brands and country wines of Italy, Portugal or Spain, as well as California‟s “jug”reds, come into the category. Often a slight sweetness remains in the wine to disguise its lack of body. Like the “neutral” cheap whites, these are essentially wines for mealtimes, a healthy and stimulating accompaniment to almost Any homely food. They are always best served rather cool as drinks on their own there are improved by being iced and in summer ( as Sangria, with orange juice added ) and “mulled” On the stove with sugar and spices in winter.

Fortified Wines Wines whose natural strength is augmented with Added alcohol, either during the fermentation to Preserve the natural sweetness ( as in port ) Or after they have fermented to dryness as a preservative ( as in sherry ).

Since the role of these wines is largely determined By their sweetness, which is at their maker‟s discretion, all that can usefully be said is that dry versions ( whether of port, sherry, Madeira or their Equivalents are intended as aperitifs, while sweet Ones are used either before or after meals According to local taste and custom. The French, for example, prefer sweet aperitifs The Italian bitter ones, and the British who divide everything along class lines, some sweet and some dry. In all cases, small glasses are needed, because the alcohol strength is higher than that of table wine. Dry Sherry is always drunk with Tapas in Spain. It is one of the best wines for smoked eel and cuts the silky sweetness of fine Iberian ham. Old Oloroso sherry, whether dry or with added sweetness, is very good with cakes, nuts and raisins.

A tray Is used by the server to carry the prepare drink from the bar to the guest table or to the guest directly as in the case of a stand-up cocktail reception where there Are no tables. When serving a gin tonic using tray service, the tonic is poured in and mixed with the gin and a slice of lemon added to the drink before the waiter serves the Drink. 

Guests may also choose to help themselves to the drinks after the first round of drinks are served. A number of bottles or volume of Mixers and soft drinks are included in the price of the bottle sale. Subsequent orders of mixers or soft drinks Are charged accordingly. A tag or numbered sticker will be used to identify Each bottle. These tags or stickers would normally have the names and signatures of the guest who Purchased the bottle. In addition the dates of each time the bottle is “used” may also appear on these tags or stickers. This is Necessary because most bars or clubs would impose a specified time span in which the bottle must be Consumed after each time it is used. The volume of spirit remaining after each time it is Used, is indicated on the stickers or line to be drawn to Prevent any misunderstandings. The person who holds purchases the bottle is given a Card to identify them as the holders of a purchased Bottle of spirit that is being held for them by the bar. In a sense they become members of the club or disco and may gain entry quite easily even as a queue exists at the entrance. This card is only valid if there is spirit in the bottle from a previous visit.

COCOA - Theobroma Cocoa
The food of the god
The cocoa tree originates from the river valleys of Northern South America and was carried north into Mexico by the Mayas in the 7th century A.D..The word cocoa is Aztec in origin and refers to the tree itself. The seed of the cocoa tree contains a good deal of fat and protein and would have been a imported food, if eaten in quantity. Mexican natives valued it enough to use it as a currency. The first Europeans to see the cocoa bean were probably the crew of Columbus's 4th voyage in 1502,but it was Cortez the conqueror who brought the first news of the cocoa tree to Europe in 1520.The Spanish leader was the first in Mexico to prepare a drink of roast cocoa beans ,ground maize ,vanilla and cinnamon. In a book written in 1565(The history of the world) it is said that Indian fowl(Turkey) and Cavacate (cocoa) have been unique contribution to the world from the Americas. In the beginning the drink made from cocoa was not very much liked. Rather it not until it was mixed with sugar later that it appealed to the European pallet. THE COCOA TREE The cocoa tree, named Theobroma Cacao (food of the gods) is an evergreen tree that grows up to 20 feet in height and produces pods 6 to 10 inches long and 3 to 4 inches in diameter, containing 20 to50 beans, each about an inch long. Today it is to be found over the whole of the tropical belt i.e. approx. 20* north and south of the equator. It flourishes in the most even temperature (approx. 25*C average) with high soil and air humidity. to about 600 meters above sea level. A handful of different varieties make up the bulk of the world crop, which stands at about 1.75 million tons today The most important planting areas(approx.3/4 of world production) are: The Ivory Coast, Brazil, Ghana, Nigeria, Cameroon, Ecuador, Mexico, Colombia, Malaysia, Philippines, Sri Lanka The origin of chocolate begins in the heart of a continent, which was not yet called South America. Legend has it, that the cultivation of Cacao was developed by the third Maya king Hanatipu 1000 BC. The Mayas used cacao beans as a form of currency. The cacao trees were first mentioned by Bernadino de Sahagun, a Spanish chronicler and author of the history of New Spain in 1590. The word cacao derives from the Aztec word “caahuatl” and the word chocolate from the universal transcription of the Maya “ tchocolatl” or “xocolatl, the world chocolate is an Indian name. The almond shaped fruit cacanate is concealed in a sort of gourd, almost as a large as a cucumber.They take one year to ripen. The Indians make a beverage out of it what they call today “ champurado ”. Average consumption per year/per person is: 10 lbs America, 12 lbs Europe, 22 lbs Switzerland, 18 lbs The Netherlands, 15.5 lbs Germany, England Chocolate is used either as a drink or like in Mexico, part of savory dishes and recipes. Of course today used in gourmet shops and Patisseries around the world for ice cream, cakes Pastries, pralines, cookies, confect and show pieces

THE HARVEST AND PROCESSING Kakao trees bear buds, blossoms and fruit all at the same time. The kakao fruit is long and oval and the beans are embedded in the fleshy interior of the fruit. Kakao pods are generally harvested all the year round though most heavily from May to December. In order not to damage the tree, the fruit is neatly cut from the tree and the stem and then the fruit is gently opened up lengthways

Production of Cocoa
Upon receipt the beans are cleaned off any clinging dirt or foreign bodies by special machines. The cleaned beans are roasted cracked and then roasted again. The shell breaks off as the bean is split and the kernel is removed from the hell. Roasting takes place at 120*c for a varying period to reduce water content and to strengthen and round off the flavour. The roasted kernels are then ground and milled finely to give us the cocoa mass, which is the basic stuff for the various cocoa and chocolate products. When this product is pressed,a large amount of fat called cocoa butter is separated and pressed cocoa cake is left behind. If the cocoa mass is conched then we get block cocoa. COCOA POWDER This is the pressed cocoa cake that has been ground finely with a minimum fat content of 20%. Sweet cocoa powder is a mixture of sugar and cocoa powder with maximum sugar content of 66-68%. COCOA BUTTER This is the fat removed by pressing cleaned cocoa mass. Very early in its career ,cocoa butter was prized for its resistance to rancidity due to being very regular in composition which also gives it a sharp melting point due to which the chocolate changes from solid to liquid very fast The first step in processing is a brief fermenting of the beans and the pulp together. The next step is to remove the beans from the flesh and then the beans are fermented in the sun in huge heaps. After this the beans are dried for 6 to 7 days. During the fermentation and the drying the bitter taste of the beans is removed, the possibility of germination is killed off and a brown coloring agent is created on its own. After this the beans are cleaned off, of any clinging flesh pieces. Then the beans are filled into sacks and are ready for dispatch. In the English parlance the tree etc.is usually accepted as KAKAO until fermentation and drying is completed and then the English spelling of COCOA is used.

Citrus Fruit
Members of the large citrus group include the lemon, lime, orange, tangerine and grapefruit as well as more exotic fruits such as the ugli fruit, shaddock, citron and kumquat and hybrids such as the clementine, tangelo, ortanique and limequat. With their aromatic acidity, citrus fruits are used in soups, savoury stews and salads and often form the main flavour in desserts such as souffles and mousses. Invaluable as decoration, their vivid colours complement almost all foods. Citrus fruits are covered in a thick rind, mainly white pith (called the albedo), which has a thin colourful outer layer of zest or rind, where citrus oil and most of the vitamins are concentrated. Tropical yellow and orange citrus varieties usually remain green even when ripe, turning bright yellow or orange when treated with ethylene gas. The most versatile member of the citrus family must be the lemon, whose cultivation goes back atleast 2,000 years. It is grown extensively in the U.S. and Italy, and other large producers include Greece, Spain, Argentina and Chile. There are two main types of lemon. The common or acid lemon seen in most markets has relatively few pips and maybe small with a smooth thin skin, and valued for juice, or large with a thicker, rough skin preferred for its peel. The other type, the sweet lemon, is grown mostly as a novelty. A good lemon is heavy for its size and perceptible smell. Lemons have many uses in cooking: a squeeze of fresh lemon juice enlivens many savoury dishes and particularly sweet dishes, such as American lemon meringue or lemon chiffon pie, French lemon mousse , British lemon jelly, or Italian lemon tart. In Britain, bread or scones are often served with lemon curd, a thick paste of lemon, butter, sugar and egg yolks. It often takes place of vinegar in vinaigrette and marinades and can "cook" thinly sliced raw meat or fish, as in Latin American Seviche. Lemons may also be preserved in salt or pickled to serve as a condiment, while their sourness is a useful substitute for salt in special dishes. Lemon is also used in cooking to prevent the flesh of fruit or vegetables from discolouring. Lemon slices are an essential accompaniment for a seafood platter, most fried food and savoury fritters, and many dish coated in breadcrumbs. They are also necessary ingredient of lemon tea. Preserved lemons are widely used for flavouring fish and meat in North African cookery. Lemon is included in jams, compotes, lemon curd and chutneys. Lemon extract or flavouring is used in confectionery and in wines and spirits. It also flavours certain aromatic teas.

Bright green limes are also full of sour juice and are prepared and treated in the same way as lemons. Tahitian varieties have a thick skin and juicy pulp, while sour Mexican varieties are smaller with a thin, smooth skin and yellowish colour. In the U.S., Florida's "key" lime is the most celebrated Mexican variety. Americans enliven their melon with lime, while in the tropics a squeeze of lime is mandatory with papaya and guava and in Asia fresh lime juice is often added to curries, pairing well with hot pepper. In Mexico, limes are often used in place of lemon with cold seafood and fruit salads, as well as in guacamole. Lime juice is used extensively in desserts, especially those with cream. Lime is smaller, more fragrant, and juicier than the lemon. The lime is cultivated in tropical countries, including the Ivory Coast, Brazil, and the West Indies, and is often used in Caribbean and Brazilian dishes, particularly fish or meat stews, marinated chicken, jams, sorbets, punches and cocktails. The zest is used like lemon zest and will keep for a long time steeped in castor (superfine) sugar or rum. Through the centuries, orange trees have been symbols of opulence, and their fruit has become one of the most important of all fruit crops. The bitter orange, also called the sour, Bigarade or Seville orange, is believed to be the common ancestor and was the standard orange until the early nineteenth century. Sweet oranges can be divided into three types. The common orange, used for juice, is a medium sized heavy fruit, with a fine grained skin. It is often known by varietal names such as Jaffa from Israel, and Valencia, which is grown in Florida, California, Latin America, South Africa, Europe, Australia but not, Spain. Navel oranges are characterized by a navel- like depression enclosing a small internal embryonic fruit. They are seedless and appear from the end of October. THOMSONS, with a very fine smooth shiny skin, have highly coloured fibrous pulp, not very sour and moderately juicy but with a good flavour. WASHINGTONS, with a firm rough skin, are juicy and slightly sour. Navel oranges are mainly grown in Italy and have a particularly rich flavour, reminiscent of berries. Another variety, the aromatic pineapple orange, is full of pips and is commercially used for juice Blondes are winter oranges, with pale flesh, coming mostly from Israel(Jaffas). Shamoutis, quite large and with a thick skin and seeds, have crisp well flavoured juicy pulp. Salustianas, seedless and with grainy peel, are very juicy. Blood Oranges have a dark red pulp and the skin may be veined with dark red. They are available from December to April. The Maltese orange, with seeds, is sour, very juicy, and has an exceptionally good flavour. Moro oranges, with a rough skin, are very juicy. Late oranges have pale flesh, few seeds, and come mainly from Spain and the southern hemisphere. Valencia oranges, with or without seeds, have smooth firm skins and are very sharp and juicy.

Oranges are widely used in desserts, patisserie, and confectionery, for fruit salads, mousses, dessert creams, jams and marmalades, frosted fruit, ices and sorbets, fritters, soufflés, filled sponges (orangine), and biscuits(cookies). The candied peel is also used in numerous desserts & cakes, either as an ingredient or as a decoration. Oranges form the basis of an equally large range of drinks: syrups,sodas, juice, orangeade, punches, liqueurs & fruit wines. Mandarins are small, slightly flat, loose skinned oranges with a sweet taste. Perhaps the best known mandarin is the tangerine. The Japanese satsuma is a clementine(a bitter orange and tangerine cross) is bright orange red with a pebbled skin and tangy sweet flavour. One of the largest citrus fruits is the grapefruit, with a diameter of upto 6 in./ 15 cm. Grapefruit are either whitefleshed with a yellow rind or pink fleshed with a pinkish blush to the rind. The two differ little in taste, which depends more on the presence of pips than on colour. Fruits with many pips have a pronounced flavour and are grown for canning, while the milder, pipless varieties are usually eaten fresh or in salads. Grapefruit juice can be added to fruit jellies and sorbets, and the flesh suits bitter greens, avocado and fresh cheese. The ugly fruit resembles a squashed grapefruit with a mottled greenish skin but its flesh is surprisingly sweet and juicy, despite its discouraging name. Usually eaten raw, in the Caribbean it is baked in its skin then eaten hot with sugar. The grapefruit tree probably originated in the West Indies but a large percentage of the world's crop is grown in the southern United States. It is usually served as an hors d'oeuvre, cut in two, each segment being detached from the skin with a special saw knife with a curved point. the fruit is also used to make marmalade and the juice is widely consumed as a fruit drink. The shaddock( also called pummelo or pomelo) is the largest citrus, resembling a large grapefruit with coarse, bittersweet dry flesh with a greenish, yellow or pinkish skin. It was brought from southeast Asia to the new world by a Captain shaddock in 1696. Grown mainly in Thailand Also rarely seen in the markets is the citron, cultivated for its thick aromatic rind. It is never eaten fresh, but is often used in marmalade and candied for use in cakes. It is a citrus fruit from China and similar to the lemon. The fruit is slightly larger than the lemon and pear shaped. The smallest citrus is the tiny, orange oval kumquat, which originated in the east but is now grown mainly in Brazil. The fruit has distinctive sweet sour flavour, the sweetness is especially evident in the rind and kumquats are usually eaten unpeeled. They are deliciously fresh, but may also be candied.

ICE CREAM QUALITY: Quality implies a clearly produced ice cream of acceptable flavour, body and texture. The composition of the product and the ingredients used be within the parameters and the limits set by the food laws prevailing in the country. The desirable physical properties of the ice-cream should be defined mainly in terms of the texture as it is eaten. The consistency should be creamy and air content should finely distributed. There should be quick melting effect on the palate, without greasiness or gumminess, and with no gritty or icy sensation as the ice cream warms up, it should have a tendency to retain its shape, and as it melts, a creamy and not a watery serum should be formed. Flavour acceptability is governed by the quality of the ingredients used e.g. Fruit, chocolate and nuts as well as added flavours. The basic flavour must come from high quality milk and cream. Smoothness: It is in relation with the size of the ice crystals formed in the product and therefore ice cream must be quickly frozen and churned during the preparation. The eggs and stabilizers added to the mixture also helps in smoothness. OVERRUN: It is an increase in the volume due to the incorporation of air during churning and addition of air and cream. E.g.:- When 1 lit of ice cream mix increases in volume by 1 lit then the overrun is 100% .An ideal overrun should be of around 75-85% Less will make it heavy and more will make it frothy and lack in flavour .Some manufacturers produce only an overrun of 25-30%.

PREVENTION OF FOOD ADULTERATION ACT DEFINES ICE -CREAM AS FOLLOWS : PFA RULE A 11.02.08 The frozen food obtained from cow or buffalo milk or a combination thereof or from cream and/or milk product with or without the addition of canesugar(dextrose, liquid glucose and dried liquid glucose), eggs, fruits, fruit juices, preserved fruits, nuts, chocolate, edible flavours and permitted food colours. It may contain permitted stabilizers and emulsifiers not exceeding 0.5% weight. The mixture should be suitably heated before freezing. The product shall contain not less than 10% milk fat , not less than 36% total solids, except that when any of the aforesaid preparations contains fruits or nuts or both the contents of milk fat shall not be less than 8% by weight. Starch may be added to a maximum extent of 5% under the declaration on a label as specified in the sub rule (2) of rule 53. The standards of ice-cream shall apply to “softee” ice cream. Imitation ice cream known as Mellorine are made in various parts of the world. Mellorine is cheaper than ice cream because of substitution of milk fat with vegetable fats and oils. Other than this change, mellorine has approximately the same composition as ice cream.

STEPS INVOLVED IN THE PROCESSING OF HARD ICE CREAM Ice cream is a complex system in which the stable mixed emulsion of four phase system fat-water-ice-air, must be balanced and protected from breaking and separating. MIXING AND PASTEURIZATION: After weighing or metering by volume, the ingredients are heated together in a jacketed tank with strong agitation so as to form a core emulsion with large fat globules of up to 15 grams in size. Pasteurization treatment may be carried out in mixing tank or in a separate plate heat exchanger. During homogenization, the mix is converted into a true emulsion with a fat globule size of less than 2gms. For efficient homogenization the fat phase should be completely liquid and hence a temperature near pasteurization temperature is preferred. Homogenization of ice-cream mix is normally carried out at a pressure of 140 to 210kg/cm2. At the end of this treatment, it is often found that small fat globules cohere in clumps, resulting in a viscous mix with poor processing properties in subsequent stages. A second homogenization at the lower pressure such as 35kg/cm2 is used to break up the clumps.

COOLING: The emulsion is immediately cooled to 4 degrees centigrade using a heat exchanger or to supper cool if fat is present. AGEING: The cooled emulsion is usually stored in a thermostatically controlled vessel for 2 to 8 hours because such ageing improves freezer performance and produces better ice-cream structure. During ageing the stabilizer hydrates fully and increases the viscosity of the emulsion. The importance of ageing will vary with different stabilizers. Absorption of protein to fat globule surface continues. Significant improvement in texture is noted. FREEZING: Ice cream is offered for sale in two forms: 1. As hard ice-cream which has been frozen in a continuous freezer and is then either extruded, shaped and packed in small individual portions and in bulk containers up to 3 gallons in size. The final processing step for all these is hardening in a low temperature cold store at -30 to -400C and use of refrigeration distribution system. 2. As soft ice cream which is frozen in small batch freezer situated at the retail outlet. Ice-cream mix for this type of operation is provided as a pasteurized mix which has been stored at 40C after manufacture, or from cans of UHT mix which may be stored at room temperature, or from a powdered mix which is dispensed in water or milk before being placed in the freezer. Freezing is carried out continuously in a scraped surface heat exchanger at a very low temperature of -220C to 250C for a short time and under high agitation. Ice cream mix and the air in the desired proportion are pumped successively through the freezer. For soft frozen ice cream , which is immediately consumed, 5-6 hr. freezing at comparatively higher temperature is used. HARDENING AND STORAGE: The temperature must be reduced after freezing until about 80% water is frozen. This freezing should take place quickly to avoid the formation of large crystals which cause coarseness. Normally this is achieved by storage at 400C for about 30 minutes.

FUNCTIONS OF SOME OF THE INGREDIENTS: SUGARS: Sugar content represents about half the total solids of the ice cream mix and includes lactose naturally present as a constituent of mix. Sugars acts as sweetening agents, depress the freezing point of the mix, influence the consistency of the continuous phase, and to some extent the ice crystals size and lactose crystallization of the frozen ice cream. STABILIZERS: Gelatin was the first stabilizer used in ice cream manufacture . Since then a number of polysaccharide stabilizers have become available. These include Sodium carboxy methyl cellulose, micro crystalline cellulose, sodium alginate , carragenan, agar, pectin, xanthan gums, carrobean and guar gum. They are often used in mixtures. Stabilizers perform several functions in ice cream. They increase the viscosity of the continuous phase, there by contributing to eating characteristics such as body and creaminess. They regulate the development of ice crystals and thereby give a smooth textured ice-cream.. During the inevitable temperature fluctuations, encountered in the storage, transport and distribution they minimize the development of large crystals and the undesirable coarse structure. They thicken the aqueous phase and modify the crystallization of ice.

ANTIOXIDANTS: The ice cream is commercially stored for a long period of time , therefore the manufacturers add antioxidants to the ice cream mix to prevent oxidation. Vitamins, tannin, oat flour is used mainly. EMULSIFIERS: For keeping the mixture a homogeneous mass the ice cream needs to emulsified, so it prevents crystal formation during freezing. Egg yolks, citrates, mono/diglycerides from fats and oils, stearates and oleates are used for emulsification of the ice cream.

ICE CREAMS ARE DESIGNATED ACCORDING TO     PHILADELPHIA ICE CREAM--> Uncooked mixture of thick cream sugar and flavorings. FRENCH ICE CREAM--> Cooked mixture of milk sugar and flavorings with whipped cream. AMERICAN OR PLAIN ICE CREAM--> Similar to French ice cream but may contain corn starch /flour or gelatin instead of eggs for thickening. ITALIAN ICE CREAM--> Similar to American ice cream.

CLASSIFICATION OF FROZEN DESSERTS AND ICE CREAM  ICE CREAM: It is a smooth frozen mixture of milk, cream, sugar, flavouring, eggs, and colouring. Some ice creams such as Philadelphian style does not contain eggs. While the French style of ice creams contain egg yolks. The egg add richness and helps to make the product more smooth since it has emulsifying properties. ICE MILK: It is like ice cream but with a lower butter content , while frozen it contains yoghurt in addition to the milk and cream. SORBET: Sorbet and ices are made from puree of fruits and fruit juices and sugar. Some sorbets also are flavoured with wines, liqueurs. American sorbets however contain some amount of milk and cream and egg white to increase the volume and texture. While water ice contains only fruit juices and sugar with water. Granite coarse crystalline ice made from fruit puree, egg white, sugar. FROZEN DESSERTS: Frozen souffle and frozen mousses are made like bavaroise which has cream and egg whites and folded into to give them lightness which allows them to be still frozen in ordinary FREEZER

ICE - CREAM INTRODUCTION Popularity of frozen food namely ice cream needs no introduction or explanation because it is one such food item which is liked and wanted by young and old alike and is popular like certain foods all over the world. In present times there have introduction of so many new flavours and combinations made from basic ice cream that it has become one of the major profit making items on any menu-card . It has also an advantage that it can be prepared in advance and can be stored for a longer period of time. Over the years, more and more frozen food parlors and establishments have mushroomed in a very short time and is attributed to the fact that it is getting increasingly popular. A wide range of dessert are created by simply freezing . Sorbets made of simple combinations of fruit juice or puree, wine, or liqueur, plus sugar and various flavourings; and rich mixtures based on eggs, milk, cream. Of the latter custard based ice creams made of milk and thickened with egg starch but even richer mixtures are used for parfaits, frozen soufflés, bombes and other frozen creations. The key to good sorbet and ice-cream is the smoothness, the ice crystals that form naturally during freezing must be fore stalled. This is accomplished by stirring the mixture continuously usually by machines. The higher the proportion of water, the more ice crystals form and therefore the more thoroughly it must be stirred. This is why sorbets, particularly those based on wine or fruit juices rather than fruit purees are quite hard to make . On the other hand very rich mixtures such as parfaits and bombes with a high proportion of eggs and cream freeze smoothly without stirring at all. Good sorbets and ices should be lightened by further adding beaten eggs and/or meringue half way through freezing while parfaits and bombes are lightened with beaten egg whites and whipped cream. It increases bulk by adding air as can be seen by weighing equal volumes of home made and commercial ice-cream.

When making any mixture to be frozen , bear in mind that taste is blunted by cold , so flavours must be concentrated with a bit of lemon juice or alcohol as well as plenty of sugar. Especially fruits like passion fruit, citrus fruit and cherries. For ice cream the straight forward tastes of vanilla, chocolate, and coffee are still preferred , together with crushed nut mixtures such as praline or candied fruits macerated in liqueur. Ice cream may also be tinted with food coloring but with discretion mint and pistachio ice cream are appealing when tinted palest green, and sour fruits may need picking up with pale pink color.

History
The history of ice cream is linked with that of gastronomy and refrigeration. The Chinese knew the art of making iced drinks and desserts long before the Christian era. They taught this art to the Arabs, who began making syrups chilled with snow , called sharbets (hence the words „sherbet‟and „sorbet’). At the court of Alexander the great, and later under Nero, fruit salads and purees were served, with honey and snow . It was not until the 13th century however , that Marco Polo brought back from the East the secret of cooling without ice , by running a mixture of water and saltpetre containers filled with the substance to be cooled. Thus the great fashion for water ices began in Italy. When Catherine de‟Medici arrived in France to marry the future Henri II , she introduced iced desserts to the court, among other culinary novelties but the Parisian public only discovered them a century later, when Francesco Procopio opened a cafe. People went there to read news-sheets, discuss politics and literature and above all to sample drinks and delicacies, among which there were ices and sorbets(sherbets) that soon became all the rage. Procope(as he was now called)was soon imitated by his colleagues: in the 18th century, 250 limonadiers were selling ices in Paris, but only in summer. In about 1750 Procope‟s successor, Buisson, had the idea of selling ices all year round. The fashion at the time was to walk under the arcade of Palais-Royal where the fashionable cafes sold their iced specialties, but these were still of poor quality. Around 1775, ices became more delicate in flavour, richer, and with more body, so that they could be moulded into different shapes. Ices made with milk, cream , and eggs appeared. In fact they had been discovered in 1650 by a French cook of Charles I of England, who paid him to keep his method secret. The end of the 18th century saw the great fashion for fromages glaces .The manufacture of ices continued to develop .The ice bombe appeared and it became customary to serve it during any meal of any significance. Two Italians, Pratti and Tortoni were especially famous for their fine ices; in particular, Tortoni launched the iced sponge cake in 1798. Under the Second Empire the surprise omelet was invented, then the first coupes, mousses, and parfaits. Ices were served at the end of the meals, and also at became common during balls and reception. Very refined blends of flavours were invented (apricots and wild cherries, Mignonne peaches, Malmsey wine from Alicante, angelica liqueur, the yolks of finch eggs, sugary melon, hazelnuts and mint liqueur, green tea and citron juice, pistachios and peach juice, etc., according to the recipes in the Preceptoral des menus royaux of 1822). By the beginning of the 20th century , itinerant ice cream vendors were already selling in the streets .The United States have been particularly inventive as regards the ice cream industry. Ice cream soda was invented in Philadelphia the hub of ice cream manufacturing in US. Ice cream cones, portables and self contained originated in 1904 World‟s Fair in St. Louis in US. Ancient recipes were gradually modified and adapted to the needs of industrial manufacture. Nowadays stabilizers are included , such as edible gelatin , egg white, agar, agar and carob.

Besides these cheese there are some of the major cheese that are promient world-wide. These cheese are the most common and as such deserves special mention. They include :  Ricotta ---- An Italian fresh unripened cheese made from the whey of the cow‟s milk. It is smooth and mild tasting and is used in a variety of sweet and savoury dishes, including pizzas. It is packed in various shapes and sizes. Mozzarella ---- An Italian unripened curd cheese originally made from buffaloes milk, but now obtained exclusively from cow‟s milk. Made in various shapes, such as round and slabs, it is also packed shredded. It is a soft cheese with a rather moist texture. It has a mild, creamy taste and is widely used as a cooking cheese- in pizzas lasagne and toasted sandwich. Pecorino ---- These are cheeses called “Pecorino” all over Italy. Nobody actually stipulates how and from which kind of milk, farmers or dairies should make it, meaning that many different versions of Pecorino can be found ranging from fresh to ripe, and from mild to mature. In principle, however Pecorino is a hard cheese made from sheep‟s milk. It is therefore hardly surprising that it‟s most well known representatives come from Central and Southern Italy, and from Sardinia and Sicily, where the largest flocks of sheeps graze. Rennin is added to the milk so that a soft gel is quickly formed. The cheese maker usually cuts the curd until it is the size of wheat germ. This is then heated to just under 122*F(50*C). The mixture is poured into basket work cylinders which are woven in Sardinia. Pecorino takes 8 months to mature during which time it is regularly washed with salt and water and turned. Once matured, the rind is oiled; this is mostly hard and dark. The cheese itself is light in colour, with a grey tinge, and tastes pleasantly tangy. The most famous types of Pecorino are Pecorino Romano, Pecorino Toscano, Pecorino siciliano and Pecorino Sardo. The young Pecorino is popular as cheese boards, whereas when matured it is grated. It Southern Italy Pecorino is used instead of Parmesan

Parmesan
The most famous of all Italian cheeses which as Parmesan has countless imitators has been produced using the same method for several centuries. One even suspects that known to the Etruscans to qualify for a guaranteed certificate of origin. This cheese can also be produced in a stipulated are which encompasses the provinces, Parma and Reggio Emilia, Modena Mantua on the right bank of the river Po and Bologna, on the left bank of the river Reno. There are also rules set up to secure the high quality of Parmigiano- Reggio, the main one being that the cows either be put out to graze on a meadow or be fed not on silo cattle fodder but on alfa-alfa. The milk from the evening‟s milking is left to stand overnight, and the next morning the cream is skimmed off. Then together with the mornings milk it is poured into the traditional bell-shaped copper vats. Whey is added to it from previous cheese making processes as a fermentation serum. Stirring occasionally the cheese maker heats up the milk to 91*F(33*C) in order to add rennin- calves stomach enzymes to it. The milk curdles after 12-15mts. The curd, the cagliata is broken with the spino(a spike), until the size is that of a wheat germ. The cheese maker now gradually reheats the vats to 113*F(45*C), and then more fiercely to 131*F(55*C). After the heat has been turned off the cheese mass settles to the bottom of the vat and is removed with linen cloth. Still in the cloth the cheese is deposited in wooden or metal moulds, fasceri. It is lightly squeezed to accelerate the discharge of the remaining whey. A few hours later the cloth is removed and the stencil is pressed onto the cheese, labelling with Parmigiano- Reggio, mark of origin and date of production. The cheese remains in this mold for a few days, after which it becomes a solid slightly bulbous cylinder. This is left in a salt solution for 20-25days after which the cheese is then sun dried for a short period of time and then finally moved to the store(cascina).Lying on stable wooden shelves the cheeses mature slowly, during which they are regularly turned and brushed. It is mostly at the end of the year that the cheese maker transfers his annual production to specifically built storerooms. These stores can hold between 50,000 to 100000 cheeses and usually belong to banks or cooperatives which also provide some financial support. Each year the region produces 90.000 tones of cheese, ie; 2.4 million cylinders of Parmagiano-Reggiano for which they use 40,00,000 gallons of milk; two gallons of milk are needed to make one pound of this excellent cheese. Parmesan belongs to the category of medium fat cooked hard cheese. It is made between April 1 to November 11 through a completely natural process and must last until at least till the end of summer following the year of production.

The typical characteristics of Parmesan are :
         7 Weight: Between a minimum of 50 and a maximum of 100 pounds(24-44kg). Diameter: between 14-18 inches(35-45cms). Height: Between 7-9.5inches(18-24cms). Rind thickness: About 0.25inch(6mm). Fat content or dry matter: At least 32%. Colour: Light to straw yellow. Structure: Fine grained and scaly, with minute barely visible holes. Aroma: Mild and full bodied. Age: Fresco(Fresh)- less than 18 months Vecchio(mature)-18-24 months Stravecchio (Very mature)- 24-36 months. Gorgonzola: Originally only produced in the little town of the same name near Milan. Gorgonzola is today made in the provinces of Lombardy and Piedmont. It‟s basic ingredient is full cream and pasteurized milk. Milk is heated to a temperature between 82*F-92*F(28*-32*C), and curdled using cow‟s rennin. Milk enzymes and spores of penicillium Glaucum, a special mold are added to the milk with the rennin. Once the curd and whey have been separated the cheese is poured into moulds of 10-12inch diameter, salted and left to settle for 2 weeks. To allow the blue veining to spread to it the cheese is punctured with long, high grade steel needles, first from one side and then from the other a week later. In special stores where the temperature and humidity corresponds to that of the natural caves of the Valsassina valley. The cheese matures for three months producing the following grades;  Bianco: very young, before the blue veining starts.  Dolce: slightly marbled and very mild.  Piccante: with developed greenish blue veins and a characteristic strong taste. Gorgonzola should be stored in a cool place, but eaten at room temperature to allow it‟s full aroma to be appreciated. CONCLUSION : Italian cheeses are one of the most famous cheeses of the world and it can be had as an accompaniment with starting from the main course to even the dessert. All the more that Italian cheeses can also be enjoyed as a separate course on their own.

Oriental Hospitality Consultants – OrientalHospitality.com DEPARTMENT : Restaurant TASK: Pizza JOB TITLE: All Restaurant Staff EQUIPMENT NEEDED: HOW TO DO IT The pizza has become a universally popular food, in every form from the genuine article-thin, crisp and oven baked - to frozen and fast food pizzas slices. The delightful aroma of freshly baked pizza topped with tomatoes, fresh herbs and cheese rarely fails to have a mouth- watering effect. History Of The Pizza Although there is much speculation about where pizza in its simplest form was first invented, it is usually associated with the old Italian city of Naples . It was then a simple street food, richly flavoured and quickly made. It was not always round and flat as we know it today, but was originally folded up like a book, with the filling inside, and eaten by hand. Pizzas were usually sold on the streets by street criers who carried them around in copper cylindrical drums kept hot by coal from the pizza ovens. The word 'pizza' actually means any kind of pie. The classic Napolitana pizza is probably the best-known of the many varieties. This consists of a thin crust of dough topped simply with a fresh tomato sauce, mozzarella cheese, olives anchovies and a sprinkling of oregano. When baked, the flavours blend perfectly together to give the distinctive aromatic pizza. Another classic is the 'Margarita' pizza, named after the Italian Queen margherita . Bored with the usual cuisine when on a visit to Naples, she asked to sample a local speciality. The local 'piazziaolo ' created a pizza in the colours of the Italian flag- red tomatoes, green basil and white Mozzarella. The Queen Was delighted, and it became widely celebrated. Fortunately for the busy cook, pizzas are an easy food to chill or freeze, ready to be cooked on demand. There is a wide range of ready-made pizza bases as well as dry mixes which only need the addition of water before they are ready for kneading and baking THE PIZZA BASE Although making your own base can be a little time consuming, the method is very straight forward, and you end up with a delicious home baked dish, as well as a sense of achievement. The ingredients are very basic: YEAST There are three types of yeast available: fresh, dried and easy blend. fresh is usually found in health food shops and is not expensive. Buy in bulk and freeze in 15g quantities ready to use whenever needed. FLOUR: Traditional pizza bases are made from bread dough, which is usually made with strong plain bread flour. Whole meal flour may also be used, a handful of wheat germ or bran is added at times for flavour, fibre and appeal. OIL: For the best flavour always use a good quality olive oil, such as extra virgin.

TOPPINGS There are a number of classic ingredients that can be used regularly in pizza toppings. These include tomato sauce, olives, anchovies, capers, mushrooms, ( bell ) peppers, artichokes and chilies as well as cheese and herbs. Be adventurous and experiment, but don't be afraid to stick to simple combinations of just two or three ingredients. The simplest pizzas are often the most delicious and memorable as the flavours don't fight each other.

SUCCESSFUL BAKING The Secret of a crisp, chewy base is to bake at a very high temperature for a short time as possible. Traditionally, pizzas are cooked in special ovens on a stone hearth. A large peel or paddle is used to slide in and out. Baking on a pizza stone produces the best results at home. Alternatively, use a baking sheet or a perforated pizza pan- the holes allow the heat and air to reach the centre of the base, resulting in a crisp, evenly cooked crust. Always push up the edge of the dough to form a rim to prevent the topping from spilling over while it cooks. As pizza slices are easy to eat by hand, they make great party food. Crisp salads, coleslaw and garlic bread are ideal accompaniments and help to make up a balanced meal. Because of their rich flavour pizzas are best served with Italian table wine such as Valpolicella, Chianti or a well- chilled Frascati. Beer too goes well with pizza. Follow a pizza meal with a refresher dessert such as fresh fruit salad, sorbet or ice-cream.

Four seasons: traditional pizza on which the toppings are divided into four sections to depict a season of the year. Calabrian pizza: Traditionally this pizza

Edible snails
Antoine Careme (1784-1833), was responsible for the elevation of the edible snail to gourmet status at the beginning of the 19th century -a la bourguignonne, Burgundy style, with butter, garlic and parsley. Little compartments with special compartments were developed together with pincers that could grip their hot shells and a two pronged fork to extract the flesh. The gourmet, however, realizes how meticulous the preparation of this grisly little animal is. Before consumption snails must undergo a starvation diet for at least ten days. This is strictly adhered to everywhere except in the South of France where the snails are allowed a diet of thyme. This is essential to rid the snail of any poisonous leaves it may have consumed. For reasons of cleanliness the snail is subjected to three washes with water. The first cleans the outside, whilst the second , with salt and vinegar added , concentrates on the insides. Finally the snail is bathed in clear water. The snails are then generally blanched, cooled, removed from their shells and usually cooked in a well seasoned bouillon. Once cold they are replaced in the shells which have in the mean time been sterilized. They are sealed with herb or snail butter and are then ready for consumption. Our distant human ancestors did not take long to discover the delights these gastropods. in the rest of France ,however , the upper class considered snails as food for the poor. The burgundy snail , whose shell is up to 2 inches (5cm) in diameter , fell victim to the gourmets (and modern agriculture) and has now become very rare. Chefs now often substitute them for petite gris, the smaller version of the edible snail with a gray body in a white or speckled yellow shell. They are a native of Gascony, Provence, Languedoc and Roussilon and are more suitable for domestic breeding, heliculture, than their larger cousins. Canned snails are often Eastern European imports, or Turkish snails, which are recognized by their dark flesh and black edge to the shell, or imported deep-frozen Chinese snails which are half pound giants from the family of the Achat snails. Although snails contain large amount of mineral salts . they are in fact quite indigestible and should therefore only be consumed in extreme moderation.

MUSSELS
Dutch speak of mussels as their single natural resource. Exported to France , Belgium, and Germany. Mussels are grown on the sea floor. They have little to do with fishing as the mussel seeds arer sown and harvesting of mature shells is done by boat. The immature shells are sown in shallow waters, in parcels that are licensed to the fishermen by the government on lease. When they are about 1-11/2 inches (some 3-4 centimeters)long they are transferred into deeper water and dropped on nutrition rich subterranean banks. In earlier times mussels used to attach themselves to the piers, and hence called pier mussels. Harvested twice a year May and September. When the mussels have reached size of 2-4" (5-10 cm) they are raised from the sea floor with dragnets and brought to the shore with dragnets and stored in special sea water storage container tanks. The containers keeps sand out and other impurities until the mussels are ready and can be packed and shipped. These sophisticated and strictly controlled farming and marketing techniques make it possible to still eat mussels in the months whose names contain an "R": according to a old tale, while between June and August mussels should not be eaten because of possible poisoning. In summer months , the animals filtering the sea water currents may release the so called 'water blossoms' a poisons which develops due to a concentration of a certain red algae. Today as almost all the mussel are cultivated mussels, so the danger of encountering it is small.

CLAMS
A bivalve mollusc, 5-10cm (2-4in) across whose large smooth shell is marked with fine circular striations. Clam introduced to France by the Americans in 1917 are gathered from sandy and muddy estuaries, particularly on the east coast of US. But also in France region of Charente. They are eaten raw or cooked like oysters or a la commodre. The American hard clam measuring 3-6 cm 11/4-21/2" has a thick yellowish grey domed shell marked with deep concentric grooves and covered with warty lumps. It is rarely found in the Mediterranean, but it is abundant on the Atlantic and English channel coasts living in the sands on the sea shores. Also known in France as “rigadelle” or coque ragee, it can be eaten raw,(preferably without lemon juice, so as not to hide its subtle flavour or cooked stuffed like a mussel or in a soup ). Clam chowder is a soup made from vegetables onions , and clams garnished with strips of larding bacon .It originated in New England . A clam bake picnic originating along east coast of U.S.A. at which clams and other shellfish are cooked on heated stones under a layer of seaweed.

Grip firmly with the left hand and hold straight.Work over a flat bowl to catch any water spilling from the oyster. 4. With the short, strong oyster knife cut into the so-called hinge and separate the closing muscle. 5. Now draw the knife horizontally between the shells, and then use it as a lever to open up the two halves. Remove the upper shell. Oysters are located near the sand banks between estuaries. They are able to live on the right mixture of sea and fresh water and can flourish in water temperatures of more than 70oF (22oC).The native flat European oyster species was completely decimated by disease in 1922. Fortunately there was a substitute, for in 1868 a ship in distress was forced to ditch its load of Portuguese oysters overboard, which then flourished on the Marennes coast until they too succumbed to the epidemic. Help was on hand however in the form of the Pacific rock oyster, crassostrea gigas, which has dominated the French coastal area and its restaurants ever since. In the month of July the oysters breed on strictly protected natural banks.

If you want to enjoy completely fresh sea-food in general, or hommard, lobsters, in particular, then a journey to Brittany is a must. Saint-brieuc is the French Capital for lobsters, langoustes (spiny lobsters),crabs, scale[s and other shellfish. Even oysters, indispensable on any sea food platter, are available in Brittany. The principal lobster fisheries of the world are found along the western shores of the Atlantic Ocean from Labrador south to Florida, and off Brazil (cape de Sao Rogue) in the Caribbean; off the southern tip of Africa (Cape of Good Hope) ;in the western Pacific ocean off Japan ; on the south Tasmania; in the Indian ocean west of Australia ; with smaller lobster fisheries located in the English Channel, in the Bay of Biscay, along the west coast of Africa, southward from Cape bianco; and in the eastern Pacific in waters west of Colombia, and Mexico, including Baha California. VARIETIES The greatest lobster harvest is of three species of true lobsters : 1) the American lobster (Homarus americanus), representing about 50% of the total catch. 2)The European lobster (H. Gammarus) repressing about 30% of the catch and 3)The Norwegian lobster (H.novergicus) ,also sometimes referred to as the Dublin Bay prawn or scampi These three species are found in the temperate waters of the north Atlantic and supports large fisheries. The two species found in Europe are fished from Norway south to North Africa and in the parts of Mediterranean. The American species ranges from Labrador to North Carolina. Principal fisheries for the American lobster are between Cape Cod, Massachusetts and the Gulf of Saint Lawrence, Canada In recent years ,there has been a general decline in the lobster catch, even though numerous regulation has been established by Canada and the United states over harvesting time and practice. The catching of the lobsters is an arduous job. Lobster pots are laid in the sea at a depth of up to 220 feet (70 m) . These contains bait- salted fish for lobsters, fresh fish for crabs. Everyday the fisherman put out ton the sea to haul up the poits and check the catch. Being caught is a shock to the lobsters and they require several days un the aquarium to recover. If they are brought alive they can be kept for two days in the lowest compartment of the refrigerator, covered with a wet cloth .The wooden trap is the primary gear used for American and European lobsters

This boxlike or semi cylindrical gear has basically remained the same. Although some changes has occurred , trap fishing essentially involves setting of traps that are baited with dead fish. The lobsters are attracted to the bait enters the trap, and cannot escape. The traps are lifted lifted every few days ,the lobsters are removed ,and the cycle repeats In the American market, lobsters rare marketed on the basis of there sizes, the 1pound size being the commonest one. Lobsters over 2pounds decline in there market value as consumers do not like larger lobsters. Dark blue is the colour of the live lobsters and it is only when cooked that they assume there red colour due to the presence of there characteristics pigment oxozanthine.

Cooking will also bring the true taste ,but care must be taken not to simmer the lobsters for not more than quater of an hour as it will otherwise lose its colour and flavor and the flesh will bececome tough . It can also be baked ,grilled steamed ,broiled The female or „hen‟lobsters cancontain eggs in the form of red roe and corals..The summer is the main catching season and is ofcourse the time when lobsters are at their freshest and best value fir money..

Some famous lobster dishes ; Homard a la Americaine : Flambeed lobster pieces in fine tomato sauce. Homard a la creme : Pieces of lobsters fried quickly and then cooked in cream. Hommard a la nage : Whole small lobsters cooked in white wine stock. Homard au court bouillon : Cooked and served whole in a seasoned court bouillon

CRAWFISH. It is also popularly known as the “false” lobster, principally there are two varieties Cape spiny lobsters and the European spiny lobster. Found worldwide in most temperate coastal waters, these crustaceans have no CLAWS. Most of their flesh is contained in the tails and they can be used in any recipes calling for lobsters. Available fresh or, frozen they can be steamed or broiled. Unlike other crustaceans, such as lobsters, they do not turn bright red when cooked. Spiny Lobsters : The crawfish can be easily be distinguished from the shrimps by there dorsoventrally flattened bodies and the usually powerfully developed pincers on the first pair of walking legs. The abdominal legs are no longer adapted for swimming but are used by the females as the place to attach her eggs. It belongs to the FAMILY--- PALINURIDAE GENUS---- Jasus SPECIES--- lalandei This above varieties is also popularly known as the Cape spiny lobsters and is popular on the menu in South Africa and Australia. These species has seasonal migrations, during which the animals may walk for more than 100 kilometers along he bottom of the sea and are thus able to discover suitable areas having sufficient food. It is possible, that the sounds animals produces, discovered only recently, aid in regulating these migrations. One of the largest of the spiny lobsters is the New Zealand spices (Jasus verreauxi), which can attain a weight of 30 pounds and a length of 3feet. However, most specimens are smaller than this. The European spiny lobster: FAMILY--- Palinuridae. GENUS---- Palinurus SPECIES--- vulgaris It has a body of 18 inches and weigh up to 9 kilograms. This species lives on the rocky coast of the Atlantic and the Mediterranean. It is a valuable food animals. It feeds at night on snails, mollusks, and dead animals. It is caught with pots or baits . Divers in some regions(east coast of Africa, Galapagos, West-Indies) take spiny lobsters by hand .In the night spiny lobsters are caught by holding lanterns in one hand and picking up these crawfish from the reefs by gloves .

CRAYFISH. The crayfish are essentially restricted in the distribution to the northern hemisphere. In the southern hemisphere, the ecological niche they occupy is taken over by the paradises on the south America. The true crayfish is a crustacean and reaches up to a length of about 6 inches. FAMILY -- Astacidae GENUS -- Astacus SPECIES -- astacus This is the European crayfish which lives only on clean water. And hunts for its food at night feeding on both plant and animal materials. Male crayfish can live up to 20 years. In recent years , partly because of the pollution, crayfish population has diminished. This has also been partly because of the fungus called “crab plague”. The European crayfish population was seriously threatened in 1879 when it was nearly wiped out. The American crayfish (Orconectes limosus) introduced into Europe in 1890 is immune to the disease and can survive in dirty water. It is especially popular in Scandinavia and is the main ingredient in Nantua sauce.

8 Introduction
“Sushi” vinegared rice dishes appear in many forms. All are based on vinegared rice, accompanied by slices of raw fish with or without omelet strips, sliced vegetables, “nori “ seaweed, and a variety of colourful garnishes.

These Japanese “sandwiches” may be prepared simply, by topping an oblong of vinegared rice with a dab of horseradish and a slice of fish, or elaborately by topping the rice with a wide variety of delicately flavoured ingredients, rolling them all in “nori”, and cutting them into 1-inch thick slices. The “sushi” recipes on the following pages can make unusual hors d‟oeuvres, first courses or satisfying lunches.

8.1

Variations

Sushi is simply vinegared rice plus, but the sushi devotee is faced with a difficult choice among the additions – the multitude of toppings and fillings. Above are sushi that have been rolled in nori- dried layer – and cut into rounds. The sushi are sometimes rolled with strips of omelette, watercress, mushrooms and gourd shavings. These are sushi filled with red tunny fish and sushi filled with pickled yellow radish.

Another variety of sushi is with mushrooms and cucumbers. All are accompanied by soy dipping sauce strips of pickled ginger. Another type of sushi is the nigiri sushi, in which an oblong of rice is topped with fish. Sometimes the topping is of cooked, butterflied prawns. The toppings may also be of stripped bass, partially surrounding a mound of sushi rice topped with red caviar and encircled by nori, oily tunny fish, lean dark meat tunny, omelet and squid decorated with a strip of nori. The cucumber maki zushi is a is a refreshing change of pace, and the pickled ginger adds a touch of sharpness.

Sampling The Specialty Restaurants

The Japanese like to eat out - and they do with a fervour and a frequency that are unmatched in the West. As a consequence, not only do restaurants flourish by the thousands but they are also found in every size and description. They range from the elegant and the expensive preserves of the wealthy and the influential to the tiny cubby holes and mobile food bars. Of all the eating establishments, the public most often patronize those restaurants which specialize in one way or another - perhaps in a distinctive cooking technique or in serving a single kind of food or in making the dishes associated with a particular region of Japan. Food is uniformly good both in preparation and in presentation, the restaurants are immaculately clean, and the prices are fair and often quite low. HYGIENE ASPECTS

Another advantage of this type of restaurant, particularly for the nervous foreigner who suspects cleanliness is non - existent outside his own kitchen, is that it lets one see just how clean Japan's restaurants really are. Even in very small places the floors are closed down several times an hour, the worker's wearing wooden clogs that keep their feet several inches above the wet floor. Wooden cutting blocks are washed after every use and grills scraped down immediately.

Chopsticks are used once and thrown away and counters scrubbed repeatedly until the wood gleams white. No employee who touches the food will handle money, and since every Japanese bathes at least once a day, staff hygiene is never a problem. The kitchens of restaurants with private dining rooms are not open to public view but even they maintain the highest standards of Japan compared to the world. Chopsticks should never be crossed, neither is it allowed to move food from chopsticks to chopsticks They should be laid on a “resting set” , usually out of porcelain

Stepping from the grimy street into one of these spick and span restaurants, the customer himself may feel unclean, or at least bedraggled. The Japanese have an answer for this too : oshibori . These are small damp towels - nowadays sterilized and rolled up in cellophane - which every Japanese restaurant and bar sets before each customer as soon as he sits down. comes steaming hot for most of the year and provide a highly refreshing way to wipe the casual dust from your hands makes you ready to handle your food. A man or woman without make up can get even more refreshment out of oshibori by rubbing it over the face and neck, especially in the summer when oshibori is handed out ice cold. No other counter restaurants of this type have as much to offer the adventurous gourmet as Japan's sushi are he national dish of Japan; there is nothing remotely like it anywhere else in the world. you can find it In one form or the another in every corner of Japan and you would not be able to find a native who says he doesn't like it. Even Foreigners, once they have overcome their initial prejudice against raw fish, rave about sushi and argue with each other over the merits of their favourite sushi place.

The Sushi Restaurant

The typical sushi restaurant is small, cheerful and sparkling with scrubbed wood. The bar runs the length of the room, presided over by one or more white - clad chefs, hands red from constant washing, towels knotted around their foreheads. "Irasshai" they shout as you duck under the noren and slide open the door, and as soon as you have sat down at the bar a huge cup of tea, an oshibori and a little mound of sliced ginger are set before you the ginger is to clean your palate before startingand between courses. You wipe your hands with the oshibori, sip your tea and examine the offerings of the day spread out in a refrigerated glass case running along the back of the bar. There will be the dark red lean tunny fish, the marbled fatty toro, little slabs of snow white squid, chunks of fish shiny and speckled like herring, blood red akagai clams, mounds of caviar glistening like jewels, octopus tentacles, abalone still in the shell, pale fingers of prawn and in the midst of all this seafood, little yellow rectangles of omelet, in which certain sushi are wrapped and eaten. Take your time no one will rush you.

When you are ready you point to what you want, or order it by name. The chef's hands flash like magicians, quicker than his eye; he has been trained and has practiced for years before he is allowed to serve the customers. Out comes the delicacy you have indicated. If it needs cutting the long knife smoothly slices it into two even pieces. From a large tub beside him the chef grabs a handful of vinegeared rice; deftly he kneads it , squeezing in a bit of wasabi. Two fingers of one hand press the rice in the palm of the other; one tiny loaf - shaped rice ball is ready. Then another. The flashing hands slow down. Gently the two slices of fish or whatever it may be are pressed on the two mounds of rice. Then with a proud flourish the chef picks them up in one hand and whisks them onto a slanted , shelf like part of the counter, where they await your pleasure. The whole process has taken perhaps 30 seconds. You pick up the rice mound and dip the rice part into the saucer of Soya sauce, turn it over to keep it from dripping and then place the whole thing on your tongue. Each piece of sushi is designed as a mouthful, but anybody who wants to prolong the delight by nibbling is forgiven - though the rice ball will crumble in his fingers before he finishes.The Sushi One portion of sushi consists always of two of these bite sized balls. Nothing that is sliced must ever be sliced or is served in threes, for one slice is "hito kire" which means "kill" and three slices which means "kill myself". Since the portions are so small you can sample the entire menu at one sitting, or you can eat as much as you like of your favourite dish. A serving of each variety is priced according to the value of the fish and you pay only for what you eat. Prawns are the most expensive, the cheapest, by volume, is maki zushi, in which a long sliver of tunny fish or sometimes cucumber , at the end of a sushi meal, is wrapped in rice with an outer sheet of nori; this roll is then sliced crosswise, and six or eight equal squat cylinders are placed before you. Conclusion Sushi cuisine has a colourful vocabulary of its own, and the customer who uses special words for ordering them instead of the standard Japanese vocabulary often gets special treatment as a true sushi gourmet. Surprisingly many Japanese do not know that at a sushi restaurant wasabi is called namida or "tears" because it is hot enough to make you cry, or that octopus is geso meaning legs. Sushi chefs refer to their egg items as gyoku, or jewel, to tea as agari, meaning up for obscure reasons and to of a cucumber fancying river goblin

Of course you don‟t have to go to a sushi restaurant to eat sushi. The sushi shops as well as the noodle and the domburi restaurants, do a thriving business. The sushi is beautifully arranged in opulent round lacquer boxes, which some aesthetes say enhance the taste, and carried by bicycle and motorcycles to inns, offices, and private houses. Moreover the lunchbox bento which are sold in infinite local and regional variations at railway stations, and at theaters and other places of entertainment contain many sushi ingredients although they are not, strictly speaking, sushi. Like every everything else prepared by the skilled and conscientious restaurant chefs of Japan, they are distinguished by their fine materials, their skillful presentations by a broad and varied spectrum of flavours.

Caviar
Caviar is actually the salted roe of the Sturgeon fish which are allowed to mature. The word comes from the Italian caviale, itself derived from the Turkish kawyar. But the caviar we know today is Russian. It was introduced to France in the 1920‟s following the exile of Russian princes. Charles Ritz formally launched caviar by putting it permanently on the menu at his hotel. The sturgeon lives in the sea but returns in winter to estuaries throughout temperate regions of Asia to lay its eggs. Today the Caspian sea provides 98% of the worlds caviar. The sturgeons were still common in the century but it has become so rare that fishing for it is now prohibited. The soviet Union was for a long time the sole producer of caviar. But since 1953, factories on Iran‟s Caspian coast have produced 180tonnes annually; Russia produces 1800 tons every year. No other Russian delicacy is so sought after in the entire world as caviar, the sturgeon‟s roe. As a delicacy enjoyed by the rich and powerful it takes place on the menu of European luxuries above champagne, truffles, oysters, and pate de foie gras. Its price is astronomical, the pleasure it affords many incomparable. To eat caviar is to participate in luxury.

COMPOSITION :
The eggs constitute about 10% of the female‟s body weight. After they have been removed they are washed, sieved, put into brine, ( mostly the famous “Astrachan Salt” is used ) drained, and finally packed into tins.

CATEGORIES :
   Fresh Caviar : This is practically left untreated and must therefore be consumed within a few days. Malossol : This Russian word means “lightly salted” and is therefore not an indication of a type of caviar, but rather a mark of quality. When stored correctly at 320F (00C) it keeps for a year. Pasteurized Caviar : This is heated and placed in airtight jars like a jam and can therefore be kept virtually for ever. Pressed Caviar : Roe which is damaged and of lesser value is more heavily salted and made into bricks. Pressed caviar is good value, but has an intensive caviar taste

About 5kg fresh caviar are needed to make 1kg pressed caviar. It has a strong and rather oily taste and is sometimes considered too, salty although it is appreciated by Russian connoisseurs. The process of salting only lasts for ten minutes and is carried out by hand. The caviar is spread out and is rubbed with an exactly measured film of salt. In this way the grains become firm, but must not be allowed to turn hard. After this caviar is put into large cans, which carry the number of the fish -- the roe of different sturgeons roe never mixed with each other. The cans are placed in the stores of the ship. Once on land caviar is then put into smaller cans and dispatched.

TYPES :    
Beluga - The most expensive and produced by the largest species, which can weigh up to 800 kg. The eggs are more or less dark grey, firm, heavy, and well separated. These are the biggest but most fragile eggs, and if they burst the caviar becomes oily. Ossetra - Characterized by smaller more even grains, which are golden yellow to brown and quite oily; considered by many as the best. Sevruga - Produced by small sturgeons, which are the most prolific and give very small light to dark grey eggs. This is the cheapest variety. Salmon caviar - Relatively cheap, red caviar is the roe of salmon caught in the sea.

STORAGE :
Caviar is a semi-conserve and perishable; it should be kept between 0º C to + 4º C .

PORTIONS :
If served as an Hors d‟ oeuvre allow 50gms per person. It should be served cold but not frozen, preferably on crushed ice. Blinis (buck wheat flour pancake), sour cream or lightly buttered toast make an ideal accompaniment. Never use lemon, it affects the taste. CALORIFIC VALUE : Caviar has a calorific value of 140 Cal per 100gms.It is rich in phosphorus and contains per 100gms --20 g lipids and 30 g proteins.

The correct amount of the appropriate cutlery are obtained From the nearest side station using a completed captain‟s order for the table as checklist. Required cutlery are carried to the table on the cutlery setting tray resting on the left palm, leaving the right hand to perform the adjustments. Using the Captain‟s orders as a guide, exchange the original table cutlery with the correct cutlery items to match the food orders. The exchange is carried out on a “add first, taken away second” basis, placing always the new cutlery on the table before removing the original setting. Servers carry out all settings and adjustments to cutlery on the guests right by standing on the guest‟s right and using their right hands to carry out the exchanges and vice versa. By doing so, servers will never reach across a guest when setting or adjusting cutlery.

Check that all required pieces are on the setting tray before approaching The table .



Adjust the setting at the Table to match the food orders using the Captain‟s Orders.



Visually ensure all adjustments are made before leaving the table



The only exception to this being a situation when a guest Sits with one side against the wall making it impractical Not to reach across the guest. A final visual check is always made to ensure the adjustments are correct and complete.

Mise en place: - cigar match stick or cedar splinter - cigar ashtray - cigar cutter, round scissor - candle - B/B plate for trimmings

3. Cigars which are closed at their ends, have to be Slit open. It is important, that the cut is clean and even, otherwise the cover-leaf is damaged and Therefore the problems for inhaling might occur. When cutting the cigar, 3mm of the “head” should remain. The reason for cutting the “head is solely for the purpose of clearing the folding leaves. The opening has to be big enough to provide a Proper puff, that means the cut has to be smaller than the diameter of the cigar.

4. Now the prepared cigar is presented and handed over to the guest. Normally he/she will lighten up the cigar him/herself.. Otherwise the waiter offers a gas lighter or long match stick.

FOOD & BEVERAGE DEPARTMENT : Restaurant JOB TITLE: All Restaurant Staff TASK #: 5.20 TASK: Cigar Service EQUIPMENT NEEDED: HOW TO DO IT

“A MATCH FOR A GOOD CIGAR” Tradition dictates that cognac or vintage port, are the correct accompaniments to a cigar. But why ? Today we smoke cigars at any time we fancy, so why not with a cocktail or a malt whisky? Does the acidity of a cigar need the sweetness of alcohol to cut the taste and compliment the fine nature of the leaf ,or not ? One chooses a cigar according to mood or occasion in the same way as a wine. They come in varying strengths dependant on the leaves in the roll and are sized according to length and girth. [The girth is given as the ring size or RG. The higher the figure the fatter the cigar.] There are three types used in the filler, which are secured by a Capote, or binder, while the Capa or wrapper dresses the cigar dictating its appearance. Selecting a beverage is a personal choice but I would like to enlighten you on the values of my personal favourites Definitive malt whiskies ARE OF A WIDE CHOICE, but one of my favourites includes Scapa [Orkney Isles] and you may wish to match a Don Gusto Toros. The cigar, is of medium strength. The matched pair, make a long elegant mellow smoke. The malt is soft round and fruity without the burn one gets with cognac and the mellow smoothness of the cigar combines to give a long elegant palate My next malt whisky choice is Royal Lochnagar produced just below Lochnagar, mountain on Royal Deeside single malt and so has the mineral nose and characteristics of that location. But perhaps because it is matured in sherry casks, or perhaps because of it‟s sweet mellowness, it works very well with the stronger cigars. It brings out the smoothness and style of the whisky with the Don Gusto mellowness. Another great match here is a Don Gusto Torpedo Other spirits which are an interesting match include Calvados especially an older version and very fine [Berneroy] is an adventurous match, but be careful there is not too much apple taste, which can be surprising, but the vanilla content should help to overcome this. Try a Don Gusto Corona Good Cognac of which I will not suggest as that would undermine my roots and I do not wish to enter into a discussion without having the product on hand or knowledge Moving away from spirits, I would encourage you to try cocktails starting with a Dry martini cocktail, made with quality Gin. Try matching a Don Gusto Lonsdale This particular cigar is a match for most cocktails. A Cuban cocktail favourite the Mohito, consists of Havana Club Rum, lime, fresh mint and soda and a match for this would be a Don Gusto Corona. Mai Tai‟s and a Singapore Sling go well with a Churchill Velvet Hammer , a cocktail of vodka, crème de cacao and cream goes very well with a Do Gusto Doublke Corona. The cream and the smoke, with the hint of chocolate and the cigar‟s edge of the earth flavour combine well. To summarize, cocktails work wonderfully with cigars. The sweeter the cocktail, the stronger the cigar seems to be the general rule. Malt whisky, and Cognac are also a very good combination

FOOD & BEVERAGE DEPARTMENT : Restaurant JOB TITLE: All Restaurant Staff WHAT TO DO TASK #: 5.25 TASK: Telephone Etiquette EQUIPMENT NEEDED: HOW TO DO IT

WHY

Telephone etiquette describes the correct way of communicating using the in house telephone. Telephone etiquette exists mainly because it is a polite standard that is clear and helps to avoid confusion. When answering a telephone you should let it ring approximately 3 times before answering. If you let it ring too long then the person calling may hang up if they are impatient. If you pick it up after just one ring the person may be surprised and may not sound as confident as they would like to. The official greeting should inform the person calling where they have called to and with whom they are speaking to. If the Dining on the Hill is our example, the greeting would be: “Sawasdee Khrap, thank you for calling Dining at……..l. This is …… speaking, how can I help you?” Also when someone is calling, it useful to have a pen and paper handy in case you need to write down any special details like the villa number, the time of the call and any special request that the guest may make. The notes you make will serve as a reminder in case you forget any of the details of the caller. At the end of the conversation and before you hang up, thank the guest for their call.

Oriental Hospitality Consultants – OrientalHospitality.com FOOD & BEVERAGE TASK #: 6.35 DEPARTMENT : Restaurant TASK: The Pantry JOB TITLE: All Restaurant Staff EQUIPMENT NEEDED: WHAT TO DO HOW TO DO IT The pantry is the service support for the restaurant. A good, well organised, efficiently stocked and clean pantry will make a big difference during the peak times of a busy service. A well-prepared pantry can make the difference between a chaotic service and a smooth service. The pantry is not only a holding area for the utensils required in the restaurant, it is also the launch area for food arriving via the dumb waiter (the lift) and probably most importantly, the clearing area for table ware. The holding area The pantry should hold all materials necessary not only for a smooth daily operation, but also for the occasional inconveniences, such as a survival kit for wet day. As a good preparation can equal 75% of your work, as much preparation should be completed before the beginning of the service shift. To help with this a check list and a task of duties has been compiled and is attached as an example. The launch area for the food Sometimes food can be assembled from the pass in the kitchen and sent with the waiters straight to the table. Other times this is not possible, maybe there are too many plates and trays have to be used, maybe some of the food is being sent up in the dumb waiter. In these cases, it is all too easy for mistakes to be made, and food will be delivered to a table with trays. To avoid this assembling the food in the Pantry and then getting help from other hosts/hostesses to help deliver the food is called launching, and helps avoid using the trays in service. Clearing area During service, the pantry will be where the dirty tableware is taken after the tables are cleared. Because the various articles are dirty and so harder and safer to stack during a busy moment of service, the pantry can quickly become very messy, risking breakage and even injury to members of staff. For this reason, it is important to consider the clearing area as one of the most important phases of the pantry. Care should be taken to clear the tableware as it comes in and not to let it accumulate until it becomes dangerous.

FOOD & BEVERAGE TASK #: 7.08 DEPARTMENT : Restaurant TASK: Performance Appraisal JOB TITLE: All Restaurant Staff EQUIPMENT NEEDED: WHAT HOW TO DO IT TO DO The purpose of performance appraisal is to ascertain an individual‟s present and future value to the organization. His present value is assessed by his past performance while his future value is determined by his present potential. A good appraisal would bring to light these two aspects. The main fear in handling performance appraisal is the element of subjectivity. In order to avoid subjectivity, the best approach would be to appraise performance and not personality. This would mean setting objectives and targets mutually at the beginning of a performance period and assessing whether they have been achieved at the end of it. Setting standards of performance is also implicit in the system; otherwise quality of performance will be overlooked. If an appraisee cannot achieve the stated objectives and targets, the appraisal system should encourage methods by which individual deficiencies can be met through training and development. Such a system is future-oriented and gives a correct picture as to what potential an individual shows in terms of performance. It also binds the superior and subordinate to act as a team to achieve targets. The actual appraisal becomes less difficult and as appraisal interview helps in bringing about a health exchange of ideas. Here are the things that a supervisor must start to do: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. PREPARED BY: Position: Signature: Date: Set standards of performance.

Strictly concentrate on the subordinate’s performance and not his personality. Give subordinates an opportunity to explain themselves. Help the subordinate to identify his weaknesses and develop an action plan to overcome them. Show the subordinate the path to future growth.
