Increasingly, culinary professionals are expected to serve food that not only tastes and looks great, but that also satisfies the diverse nutritional needs of their customers. Presented in a user-friendly format that will appeal to students and instructors alike, The Art of Nutritional Cuisinehelps culinary students master the art of nutritional cooking to prepare great-tasting, healthy food. This two-in-one text serves both the lecture and laboratory portions of a culinary nutrition class. Current with the new USDA "My Plate" guidelines, the first part of the book introduces students to the elements of nutritional cooking. Chapters also discuss food labels, diet-related disease, the role of nutrition in weight management and fitness, and the nutritional needs of different age groups. Take Nutritional Cooking from the Classroom to the Kitchen The second part of the book includes 11 laboratory exercises with practical tips, recipes, and sample menus. Hands-on labs and "mystery basket" challenges show students how to apply the principles of nutritional cuisine in practice-for example, how to reduce fat and increase fiber in baking. Written by experienced culinary arts teachers who are registered dietitians, this text is designed specifically for the classroom and kitchen. It includes a handy glossary, spaces throughout the chapters for readers to write their own notes, a list of recommended web sites to enhance learning, and "Teachable Moments" that explain basic food science concepts. Perforated pages make it easy to bring lab exercises into the kitchen. Incorporating numerous helpful charts, appendices, and references, this accessible text focuses on the skills students need as culinary professionals. Designed for a 12-week introductory nutrition class, it can also be easily adapted for a one-semester course.
