“I would highly recommend this book to all Hospitality students & even junior Food Technology students. It has been an excellent resource, especially for the unit of competency ‘Carry out basic workplace calculations’.

This workbook has helped our students learn about costings and overheads, weighing & conversions, time plans & work flow, and food portion control.

I have seen a huge improvement in the way our students plan and write up their kitchen work, and appreciate the valuable contribution this Workbook has made to my lessons.”
