OverviewThis course covers the preparation and service of hot and cold desserts with a focus on individual portions and the components involved in preparation. Students will learn and improve station organization, timing, and service coordination for restaurant dessert production. The course recipes will allow students to apply previously learned techniques and produce fried products, tarts, souffles, creams, frozen desserts, and contemporary creations. Both individual plated desserts and desserts for banquets will be prepared. Students will develop a dessert menu from the perspectives of variety, costs, practicality, and how well the desserts compliment the overall menu.This course includes experiential learning hours with our Community Engagement Member Institutions (CEMI). CEMI are dynamic learning environments created to foster learning through a structured interaction with the community. In addition to regular lecture hours, students will be involved in learning by doing through real projects and integration with the local population and territory in order to remove cultural and learning barriers as well as to develop a strong likelihood for success in life. The experiential learning hours are fully supervised by instructors who track students step by step during their learning experience, monitor and advise according to student needs, and support student initiative. This unique learning model allows students to benefit from an all-encompassing educational experience based on theory and practice in real enterprises, learning of comprehensive operational processes, problem-solving, leadership, and management.
