1 Culinary Math 101

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

10 Measurements Weight Volume Count

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

12 Scales Portion Scale Baker’s Scale Digital Scale

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

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

15 Count Each Large or small amounts

16 Equal 8 ounces 16 Tablespoons 48 Teaspoons Cup

17 Pint Equal 2 Cups 16 ounces 8 x 2

18 Equal 2 pints 4 cups 32 ounces 8 x 4 Quart

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

20 Liquid Measurements Gallon ½ Gallon Quart Pint Cup One Ounce Tablespoon Teaspoon 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

21 The Scale

22 The Scale Oz. Decimal

23 Recipe Conversion

24 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.

25 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

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

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

28 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 = = x 16 = = 178 Yields

29 rd to.55 AP EP Started with Ended with

30 150 x 9oz. = 1350 oz. of EP oz. AP (rd) Yield Factor Use this formula : EP / Yield Factor = AP

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