Therefore, the statement "Barding refers to wrapping the poultry with strips of fat for added flavor and moisture" is true.

    Marinating poultry adds flavour and tenderness to the meat

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Marinating poultry is a common technique used to enhance the flavor and tenderness of the meat. When poultry is marinated, it is typically soaked in a mixture of ingredients such as herbs, spices, oil, and acidic liquids like vinegar or citrus juice. These ingredients help to break down the proteins in the meat, making it more tender. Additionally, the flavors from the marinade are absorbed into the poultry, resulting in a more flavorful and enjoyable eating experience. Therefore, it can be concluded that marinating poultry does indeed add flavor and tenderness to the meat.

The absence of pin feathers and bruises suggests that the bird was properly plucked and handled carefully, while the intact skin indicates that the bird has not been damaged or tampered with. Overall, these qualities contribute to a higher quality and more desirable poultry product.

This creates a compact, flavorful dish that is often served sliced.

    Explanation
    A galantine is a culinary term that refers to a whole bird that has been deboned, stuffed, and trussed. This means that the bones have been removed from the bird, and it has been filled with a stuffing mixture before being tied up with string to maintain its shape during cooking. This technique is often used to create an elegant and visually appealing dish, as well as to make it easier to carve and serve the bird.

    The two types of marination are:

    • A.

      Spiced and plain

    • B.

      Wet and dry

    • C.

      Cooked and semi cooked

    Correct Answer
    B. Wet and dry
    Explanation
    The correct answer is wet and dry. Marination is a process of soaking food in a mixture of ingredients to enhance its flavor and tenderness. Wet marination involves immersing the food in a liquid-based marinade, typically consisting of various spices, herbs, oils, and acids like vinegar or citrus juice. This helps to infuse the flavors into the food and tenderize it. On the other hand, dry marination involves coating the food with a dry mixture of spices, herbs, and seasonings, without the use of any liquid. The dry mixture forms a crust on the food, adding flavor and texture.

Needle and string trussing involves using a needle and string to tie up or secure ingredients. Hand trussing refers to using only your hands to tie or wrap ingredients together.

    • A.

      True

    Personal hygiene is important when handling poultry because it helps to prevent the spread of harmful bacteria such as Salmonella. Poultry can carry these bacteria, which can cause foodborne illnesses if ingested.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement suggests that poultry can be stored for up to 2 weeks in a coolroom and that the flavor improves with age. However, this is not true. Poultry should not be stored for more than a few days in a coolroom as it can lead to the growth of harmful bacteria. Additionally, the flavor of poultry does not improve with age, but instead, it tends to deteriorate. Therefore, the correct answer is false.

    Rate this question:

  • 15. 

    Frozen poultry can be stored for up to 3 months

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Frozen poultry can be stored for up to 3 months because freezing helps to preserve the quality and safety of the meat. Freezing slows down the growth of bacteria, yeast, and mold that can cause food spoilage. It also helps to maintain the nutritional value of the poultry. However, after 3 months, the quality of the meat may start to deteriorate, and there is a higher risk of freezer burn. It is important to properly package the poultry to prevent freezer burn and ensure it stays fresh for the recommended storage period.
