This course focuses on the basic components of food, the nutritional value of foods and how students can select a balanced diet appropriate to their needs. Students will develop their food preparation skills using a wide variety of equipment and gain a greater understanding of the main food groups and nutrients, their importance in a balanced diet and experiment with food preparation techniques using these foods. Students will also begin exploring the hospitality industry, menu design and the role of marketing and advertising in their choices as food consumers.
