Lets Play Put the following in order from least to most Cup Teaspoon Tablespoon Quart Pint Gallon Ounce Pinch

Check Pinch Teaspoon (tsp. or t.) Tablespoon (tbsp. or T) Ounce (oz.) Cup (c.) Pint (pt.) Quart (qt.) Gallon (gal.)

Party time for 150 9 oz Prime Rib EP (edible portion) How much do I cook?

Why is Math important in Culinary Arts? Measurements Recipe Conversion Yields Recipe Costing Food Costing Menu Costing

Rule # 1 Get over your math phobia! Calculators are our Friend!

Rule # 2 Know Standard Measurements – Volume (cups, quarts, gallons, and oz. – Weight (16 oz. = 1 lb.)

The Problem Convert 252 oz. of water into something you can measure.

The Tools Teaspoon Tablespoon Shot Glass Cup Pint Quart ½ Gallon Gallon Ladles

Measurements Weight Volume Count

Weight, mass Very accurate Scales needed Liquid or dry Lbs, oz., grams

Scales Portion Scale Baker’s Scale Digital Scale

Volume, space Not as accurate Liquids or dry Cups, oz., Tbsp. Tsp.

Smaller than an Ounce 3 Teaspoon = 1 Tablespoon = 2 Tablespoons1 Ounce

Count Each Large or small amounts

Equal 8 ounces 16 Tablespoons 48 Teaspoons Cup

Pint Equal 2 Cups 16 ounces 8 x 2

Equal 2 pints 4 cups 32 ounces 8 x 4 Quart

Equal 4 quarts 8 pints 16 cups 128 ounces 8 x 16 Gallon

Liquid Measurements Gallon ½ Gallon Quart Pint Cup One Ounce Tablespoon Teaspoon 3 1 4 qts...., 8 pints, 16 cups, 128 oz. 2 qts..., 4 pints, 8 cups, 64 oz. 2 pints, 4 cups, 32 oz 2 cups 16 oz 8 oz

Recipe Conversion

Conversion of Volume Measurements Convert 7 cups 5 oz. into ounces. Method – ( 7 x 8 ) + 5 = 61 oz. Convert 24 Tbsp. into ounces – Method 1 24 / 2 = 12 oz. – Method 2 24 x.5 = 12 oz.

Converting Portion Size Example Original Recipe Yield is 10 portion at 12 oz. Desired Recipe Yield is for 32 portion at 10 oz. Convert recipe to like units (oz.) – 10 x 12 = 120 oz (old) – 32 x 10 = 320 oz (new) 320 / 120 = 2.66

Recipe Conversion New Desired Yield Old Yield (Original) Conversion Factor Original recipe made 2 gallons of soup New recipe makes 4 gallons of soup

Yields 150 guest 9 oz. Cooked Prime Rib How much do you cook?

One Prime Rib = 20 lb. 4 oz. AP After trimming and cooking = 11 lb. 2 oz. EP Step 1 Convert to oz. 20 x 16 = 320 + 4 = 324 11 x 16 = 176 + 2 = 178 Yields

324 178.549 rd to.55 AP EP Started with Ended with

150 x 9oz. = 1350 oz. of EP 1350.55 2455 oz. AP (rd) Yield Factor Use this formula : EP / Yield Factor = AP

The Real Answer 2455 oz. AP 16 153 lbs 7 oz Number of oz. in lb. This is how much you need to Fire
