Learning Exercise

Creating a Signature Breakfast Item

We are quickly approaching Breakfast Week! 

Breakfast week will introduce you to the many ways of preparing Eggs, Omelets, Quickbreads, Waffles, Sausage, and much more!

While you will each demonstrate the skills taught to you, I wanted to give you the opportunity to get creative for our end of Breakfast Week Buffet. You will be responsible for selecting a recipe, preparing by using proper MEP (mise en place), and executing the dish on the Thursday for service at 11am.

It is your responsiblity to research the ingredients and let me know if we need to order any specialty goods. 


Make your selections by Monday, November 26th and be prepared to discuss your choice in class. 

During Breakfast week, you will be given time on Wednesday to MEP your item. You will also have time Thursday to finish production.
