Food, Nutrition and Culinary Art
Choose Your Format
Food, Nutrition, and Culinary Arts is a unique blend of basic nutrition concepts with a focus on culinary arts. Starting with the first chapters on nutrition concepts, the use of food to meet nutrition standards is emphasized. Future chapters delve into the six essential nutrients, as well as health-related information that can help chefs learn to plan colorful and tasty meals around specific nutritional requirements. The Culinary Corner in each chapter reviews current trends and topics in the field of nutrition and culinary arts. At the end of each chapter is a helpful study guide that includes vocabulary review, pertinent activities, a case study, and a practice test. Study guides provide the opportunity for applied learning.
