The purpose of this lesson is for students to understand how and why cooks need to adjust or scale their recipes. Students will explore different reasons chefs adjust recipes and practice scaling recipes up or down for different situations. They will scale a few recipes for a ‘FoodPrints Cafe’ and work with different units of measurement to understand equivalencies.
By scaling a recipe, we can adjust the quantities we prepare.
- Why is scaling a recipe important for cooks?
- Why is it important to understand the relationship between different units of measurement?
