    • A. 

      True

    • B. 

      False

    Correct Answer

    The primary reason for using sugar products in cures is flavor.

    • A. 

      True

    • B. 

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Sugar products are commonly used in cures because they provide a pleasant taste. This is important because many medications and treatments can have a bitter or unpleasant taste, which can make them difficult to consume. By adding sugar, the flavor of the cure is improved, making it more palatable and increasing the likelihood that patients will comply with the treatment regimen. Therefore, the statement that the primary reason for using sugar products in cures is flavor is true.

    Osmosis occurs when there is an equal balance between the amount of salty fluid brine outside the meat cells and the amount of unsalty fluid inside the cells.

    • A. 

      True

    • B. 

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Osmosis occurs when there is a difference in concentration between two solutions separated by a semi-permeable membrane. In the given statement, it is mentioned that osmosis occurs when there is an equal balance between the amount of salty fluid brine outside the meat cells and the amount of unsalty fluid inside the cells. This is incorrect because osmosis actually occurs when there is a difference in concentration, not when it is equal. Therefore, the correct answer is False.

    • B. 

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The confit method, which involves slow-cooking meat in its own fat, is indeed referred to as "potting" in English. This term is used to describe the preservation process of cooking and storing meat in a sealed pot or container, typically with the addition of fat. This method helps to preserve the meat and enhance its flavor and tenderness. Therefore, the statement "The confit method is called 'potting' in English" is true.

    When using TCMs, it is all right to estimate rather than use an accurate scale.

    • A. 

      True

    • B. 

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Estimating instead of using an accurate scale when using TCMs is not alright. TCMs, or Traditional Chinese Medicines, are often used for their therapeutic benefits. However, accurate dosing is crucial for safety and effectiveness. Estimating the dosage can lead to incorrect amounts being administered, potentially causing harm or reducing the desired effects. Therefore, it is not advisable to estimate when using TCMs and instead, an accurate scale should be used.

  • 7. 

    A dry cure is sometimes called a “brine.”

    • A. 

      True

    • B. 

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    A dry cure is not called a "brine." A dry cure refers to a method of preserving food by using a mixture of salt, sugar, and spices without the addition of liquid. On the other hand, a brine is a solution of salt and water used for preserving or flavoring food. Therefore, the statement that a dry cure is sometimes called a "brine" is incorrect.

    • A. 

      True

    • B. 

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Irregularly shaped food items, such as those with uneven thickness or odd shapes, do not dry evenly during the curing process. This can lead to inconsistent drying and potential spoilage or bacteria growth. Therefore, dry curing is not well suited for irregularly shaped food items.

    The sole purpose of the pellicle is to prevent wrapping materials from sticking to the meat during storage.

    • A. 

      True

    • B. 

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because the sole purpose of the pellicle is not to prevent wrapping materials from sticking to the meat during storage. The pellicle is a thin layer that forms on the surface of meat when it is exposed to air. Its purpose is to help the meat retain moisture and develop a better texture and flavor when cooked. It does not have any direct relation to preventing sticking of wrapping materials.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    The type of wood burned to produce smoke significantly affects the flavor of the finished food product.

    • A. 

      True

    • B. 

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The type of wood used to produce smoke during cooking does indeed have a significant impact on the flavor of the food. Different types of wood, such as hickory, mesquite, or applewood, impart distinct flavors to the food, enhancing its taste and aroma. This is particularly important in smoking and barbecuing techniques, where the smoke is used to infuse flavors into the meat or other ingredients. Therefore, it is true that the type of wood burned during cooking affects the flavor of the finished food product.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    The emulsifier found in egg yolk is lecithin.

    • A. 

      True

    • B. 

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Egg yolk contains lecithin, which is a type of emulsifier. Lecithin helps to stabilize and blend together oil and water-based ingredients, allowing them to form a smooth and homogeneous mixture. This is why egg yolks are often used in recipes such as mayonnaise or hollandaise sauce, where emulsification is necessary to create a creamy texture. Therefore, the statement that the emulsifier found in egg yolk is lecithin is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    A basic mayonnaise having no particularly assertive flavors is known as an unfinished mayonnaise.

    • A. 

      True

    • B. 

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement suggests that a basic mayonnaise without any strong flavors is called an unfinished mayonnaise. However, this is not true. The term "unfinished mayonnaise" does not exist in culinary terminology. Mayonnaise is a sauce made from oil, egg yolk, and vinegar or lemon juice, and it is considered finished once it is properly emulsified.

    An emulsion is a uniform mixture of two normally unmixable substances.

    • A. 

      True

    Explanation
    An emulsion is a type of mixture where two normally unmixable substances, such as oil and water, are evenly distributed throughout each other. This means that the substances are thoroughly mixed together and there are no visible separate layers. Therefore, the statement "An emulsion is a uniform mixture of two normally unmixable substances" is true.

    • B. 

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Verjus is indeed a tart, unfermented condiment made from unripe wine grapes. This means that it is made from grapes that have not yet fully ripened and have not been fermented into wine. Verjus is commonly used in cooking and adds a sour and acidic flavor to dishes. It is often used as a substitute for vinegar or lemon juice in recipes. Therefore, the statement "Verjus is a tart, unfermented condiment made from unripe wine grapes" is true.

  • 15. 

    A tossed salad is a combination of leafy greens mixed with vinaigrette dressing and having minimal garnishes.

    • A. 

      True

    • B. 

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because a tossed salad can include a variety of ingredients, not just leafy greens. It can also include vegetables, fruits, proteins, and other toppings. The dressing used in a tossed salad can be vinaigrette, but it can also be other types of dressings such as ranch or Caesar. Additionally, the garnishes in a tossed salad can vary depending on personal preference and the type of salad being made. Therefore, the statement that a tossed salad is only made of leafy greens mixed with vinaigrette dressing and minimal garnishes is incorrect.

    • A. 

      True

    • B. 

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement is true because lettuce and other salad greens that have brown or discolored areas are commonly referred to as "rusted." This term is used to describe the appearance of these vegetables when they have been exposed to air or light for too long, causing them to oxidize and develop a rusty or discolored appearance.

    Rate this question:

  • 18. 

    Most salad greens should be stored between 32 and 42°F (0 and 6°C).

    • A. 

      True

    • B. 

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Salad greens should actually be stored at a slightly higher temperature than the given range. The ideal temperature for storing salad greens is between 36 and 40°F (2 and 4°C). Storing them at temperatures below 32°F (0°C) can cause them to freeze and become damaged. Therefore, the statement that most salad greens should be stored between 32 and 42°F (0 and 6°C) is incorrect.

    Salad plates may be stored on the line with other service plates.

    • A. 

      True

    • B. 

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Salad plates should not be stored on the line with other service plates. This is because salad plates are typically smaller in size compared to other service plates and have a specific purpose for serving salads. Storing them with other service plates may lead to confusion and mix-up during service. It is best practice to store salad plates separately to ensure they are easily accessible and can be used specifically for serving salads.

    The sole purpose of a sandwich spread is to add flavor.

    • A. 

      True

    • B. 

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    A sandwich spread does not solely serve the purpose of adding flavor. While flavor is an important aspect of a spread, it also serves other purposes such as providing moisture, enhancing texture, and adding richness to the sandwich. Additionally, spreads can also provide nutritional value and act as a binding agent for the sandwich ingredients. Therefore, it is not accurate to say that the sole purpose of a sandwich spread is to add flavor.

    • A. 

      True

    • B. 

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Standard sandwiches do not necessarily feature a 6-oz (180-g) portion of filling. The amount of filling in a standard sandwich can vary depending on the type of sandwich, the preferences of the person making it, and the establishment serving it. Therefore, it is not accurate to say that a 6-oz portion of filling is standard for all sandwiches.

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    External sandwich garnishes are additional items that are placed on the plate alongside a sandwich to enhance its presentation and flavor.

    • A. 

      True

    • B. 

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Pocket sandwiches are not made with unleavened flatbreads. They are typically made with leavened breads such as pita bread or tortilla wraps, which have risen due to the presence of yeast or baking powder. Unleavened flatbreads, on the other hand, do not contain any leavening agents and do not rise during the cooking process. Therefore, the correct answer is False.

  • 29. 

    Sandwiches wrapped in deli paper hold together better than sandwiches placed in containers.

    • A. 

      True

    • B. 

      False
