    In cooking noodles, what do you mean by the term "al dente?"

      Soft

      Firm

    Correct Answer

    Explanation
    "Al dente" is an Italian term used to describe the desired texture of cooked pasta, including noodles. It means that the pasta is cooked to be firm to the bite, with a slight resistance when chewed. It is not soft or overcooked, but rather has a pleasant and slightly firm texture. This term is often used to indicate that the pasta has been cooked perfectly, maintaining its shape and structure while still being fully cooked.

    When is the best way to slice a hotdog?

    • A.

      Slightly frozen

    • B.

      Fresh from the market

    • C.

      Frozen

    Correct Answer
    A. Slightly frozen
    Explanation
    Slicing a hotdog when it is slightly frozen is the best way because it provides a firmer texture that makes it easier to cut evenly. When a hotdog is completely thawed or fresh from the market, it tends to be soft and can easily squish or deform when sliced. However, when it is frozen solid, it becomes difficult to slice without risking injury or damaging the hotdog. Therefore, slicing a hotdog when it is slightly frozen strikes the right balance between firmness and ease of slicing.

    In cooking spaghetti, how many minutes to boil the noodles?

    • A.

      10-12 minutes

    • B.

      5-7 minutes

    • C.

      13-15 minutes

    Correct Answer
    A. 10-12 minutes
    Explanation
    To cook spaghetti, it is recommended to boil the noodles for 10-12 minutes. This time range ensures that the noodles are cooked al dente, which means they are firm to the bite but not overly soft or mushy. Boiling the noodles for too long can result in a soggy texture, while boiling for too short a time can leave them undercooked and hard. Therefore, 10-12 minutes is the ideal cooking time for spaghetti noodles.

    In cooking, what is to be sauteed first?

    • A.

      Garlic

    • B.

      Onion

    • C.

      Ginger

    Correct Answer
    B. Onion
    Explanation
    Onion is sautéed first in cooking because it adds a rich flavor and aroma to the dish. Sautéing onions helps to caramelize their natural sugars, enhancing their sweetness and depth of flavor. It also provides a solid foundation for building other flavors in the dish. Garlic and ginger are often added after the onions have been sautéed to prevent them from burning and to allow their flavors to shine through without overpowering the dish.

    Correct Answer

    Adding oil and salt to the boiling water is the first thing to consider when cooking pasta. The oil helps to prevent the pasta from sticking together, while the salt enhances the flavor of the pasta.

    In cooking, what do you mean by "ala carte?"

    • A.

      With a separate price for each item on the menu

    • B.

      Included in the buffet menu

    • C.

      Delicious meal

    Correct Answer
    A. With a separate price for each item on the menu
    Explanation
    "Ala carte" in cooking refers to a menu style where each item is priced separately. This means that instead of ordering a set meal or a buffet where all the items are included in one price, you can choose individual dishes and pay for them separately. This allows for more flexibility in selecting specific dishes and paying only for what you want to eat.
