    • A.

      Helmets.

    • B.

      FLAK vests

    • C.

    • A.

      Before meal preparation

    • B.

      After meal preparation

      Daily.

    Correct Answer
    D. Daily.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is daily. Sanitizing dining room equipment, including beverage dispensers, should be done on a daily basis to ensure cleanliness and prevent the growth of bacteria or other contaminants. This is important to maintain a safe and hygienic dining environment for customers. Cleaning the equipment before and after meal preparation may not be sufficient to prevent the buildup of germs throughout the day. Additionally, incorporating it into a weekly sanitation checklist may not provide adequate frequency for proper sanitation. Therefore, daily cleaning is the most appropriate and effective approach.

    • A.

      Coming into contact with healthy individuals

    • B.

      Consuming overcooked meats and vegetables

    • C.

    Explanation
    The major drawback in using commercial steamers is the difficulty in inspecting the food during cooking, which can result in overcooking. This is because the food is enclosed in the steamer and cannot be easily accessed or checked on while it is cooking. As a result, it is challenging to monitor the cooking progress and make adjustments if necessary, leading to the risk of overcooking the food.

    Where in the meat should you insert a thermometer for optimal temperature reading?

    • A.

      Center of the meat, contacting the bone

    • B.

      Center of the meat, without contacting the bone

    • C.

    • A.

      Open items only when needed

    • B.

      Prepare items in small batches throughout the meal

    • C.

      Do not complete all food items before serving begins

    • D.

      Cook all entrée items before the start of the meal

    Correct Answer
    D. Cook all entrée items before the start of the meal
    Explanation
    Cooking all entrée items before the start of the meal is not a principle of progressive cooking. Progressive cooking involves preparing items in small batches throughout the meal, opening items only when needed, and not completing all food items before serving begins. By cooking all entrée items before the start of the meal, it goes against the idea of preparing items in small batches and serving fresh, hot food to the guests.

  • 36. 

    What factor is not a cause of plate waste?

    • A.

      Poor portion control

    • B.

      Unpopular dishes.

    • C.

      Improper servings

    • D.

      Proper cooking temps

    Correct Answer
    D. Proper cooking temps
    Explanation
    Proper cooking temperatures are not a cause of plate waste. Plate waste refers to the food that is left uneaten on a plate after a meal. Poor portion control, unpopular dishes, and improper servings can all contribute to plate waste as they may result in larger portions than what people can consume or dishes that are not liked by the individuals. However, proper cooking temperatures do not directly impact plate waste as it is more related to the taste, portion size, and presentation of the food.
