    • B.

      A brown stock is made from beef bones while a white stock is made from chicken bones

    • D.

      A brown stock is made from veal bones while a white stock is made from fish bones

    Correct Answer
    A. In a brown stock the bones are roasted first
    Explanation
    In a brown stock, the bones are roasted first. This process of roasting the bones adds a rich, deep flavor and color to the stock. Roasting the bones caramelizes the natural sugars in the bones, resulting in a darker, more flavorful stock. This is different from a white stock, where the bones are not roasted and the stock remains lighter in color and flavor.

    The purpose of breading food is....

    • A.

      To retain moisture

    • B.

      To protect food and fat

    • C.

      To promote crispness and appearance

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    D. All of the above
    Explanation
    Breading food serves multiple purposes. Firstly, it helps to retain moisture in the food, preventing it from drying out during cooking. Secondly, the breading acts as a protective layer, keeping the food and any added fat from direct contact with the cooking surface. This helps to prevent burning and ensures even cooking. Lastly, breading promotes crispness and enhances the appearance of the food, providing a desirable texture and visual appeal. Therefore, the correct answer is "all of the above".

    What is a remouillage?

    • A.

      A type of soup

    • B.

      A secondary stock

    • C.

      A vegetable dish

    • D.

      A rice entree

    Correct Answer
    B. A secondary stock
    Explanation
    A remouillage is a secondary stock. In culinary terms, a stock is a liquid made by simmering ingredients such as bones, vegetables, and herbs in water. A secondary stock, like a remouillage, is made by reusing the bones and ingredients from a previous stock and simmering them again to extract more flavor. This process allows for maximum flavor extraction and is often used in professional kitchens to reduce waste and create rich, flavorful stocks.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    White roux is cooked ____ minutes.

    • A.

      1-2

    • B.

      3-4

    • C.

      4-5

    Correct Answer
    A. 1-2
    Explanation
    White roux is cooked for 1-2 minutes. This is because white roux is made by cooking flour and butter together until they form a smooth paste. Cooking it for 1-2 minutes is usually enough to remove the raw taste of the flour and achieve the desired pale color. Overcooking it for longer periods of time can cause the roux to darken and develop a nutty flavor, which is more suitable for making a brown roux.

    The given answer is true because when making stock, the ratio mentioned is commonly used. Water is used as the base and makes up 100% of the stock. Bones, which provide flavor and nutrients, make up 50% of the stock. Mirepoix, a mixture of diced onions, carrots, and celery, adds aromatic flavors and makes up 10% of the stock. This ratio helps create a well-balanced and flavorful stock.

    A roux is made using equal amounts of __________ and fat.

    Correct Answer
    flour
    Explanation
    A roux is a mixture used as a thickening agent in cooking. It is made by combining equal amounts of flour and fat, typically butter or oil. The flour helps to absorb the fat and create a smooth, thick paste-like consistency. This mixture is then cooked to various degrees, resulting in different types of roux used in different dishes. The flour provides the necessary starch to thicken sauces, soups, and gravies, while the fat adds flavor and richness to the mixture.

    • B.

    • C.

      3-4

    Correct Answer
    C. 3-4
    Explanation
    Blond roux is cooked for 3-4 minutes. This is the correct answer because blond roux is made by cooking equal parts of flour and fat together until it reaches a light golden color. Cooking it for 3-4 minutes allows the flour to cook and removes the raw taste, while still maintaining a light color. Cooking it for longer than 4 minutes may result in a darker roux, which is used for different recipes.
