Prep tables kept sanitized. Never sit or put feet on prep tables. Clean with disinfectant. Taste with forks & spoons. Never taste with your fingers. Each kitchen must be stocked with forks & spoons. SANITATION STANDARDS

10 + SAFETY STANDARDS 5 THINGS YOU MUST KNOW 1.Use knives with caution. Always cut away from your body and other people. Use the proper knife for the job and make sure it’s sharp. If walking with a knife, always walk slow & cautious, with the knife tip pointed down to the floor. NEVER point a knife at anyone! NEVER leave a knife in a sink. NEVER leave a knife handle over the edge of a work surface. NEVER grab the knife by the blade. Fresh’s Expectations “I expect everyone to ask their teammates to ensure that these SANITATION STANDARDS are met on a daily basis”

11 + SAFETY STANDARDS 5 THINGS YOU MUST KNOW 2).Wipe up spills & sweep up what you drop immediately. Floors shouldn’t be greasy or slippery. NEVER use a towel on the floor and then use it to wipe a food surface. 3). NEVER play around in the kitchen. Avoid distracting others. 4).Lift only what you can handle without exerting yourself. Lift with your knees bent, back straight, firm grip, object close to your body and lift with your legs. ALWAYS ask for help when object is heavy. 5).Be vocal (LOUD MOUTH!). ALWAYS say “behind you; hot stuff; coming through; watch out, move it” etc. or give some kind of warning when approaching someone from behind. Do this EVEN when you don’t have anything in your hands!

12 + Safety & Sanitation is everyone’s concern and responsibility. Report all injuries to Mrs. Freshour as soon as possible. The Cougar Culinary Arts program expects all students to follow the Safety & Sanitation standards. I will do everything necessary to make sure that these standards are enforced, including disciplinary action for noncompliance.

13 + UNIFORM STANDARDS 1. Rubber soled closed toed shoes (toes are covered); Heels no more than 1” high. 2. Hair pulled back (shoulder length); Supply your own hair accessories and or hat. Or use classroom supplied hats. 3. Jewelry removed from fingers. 4. Apron worn appropriately (tied on) 5. Freshly washed hands. Hands washed for 20 seconds. Always wash hands after touching hair or face (eyes, ears, nose, mouth, earrings etc.) If you use the pass to go out of the classroom you must wash your hands again after returning to the classroom! “I expect you to be in full uniform once the tardy bell rings or you will be marked tardy.” “If I have to remind you about any part of the Uniform Standards, points will be deducted from your lab productivity grade! 5 THINGS YOU MUST KNOW Fresh’s Expectation:

14 + CLASSROOM STANDARDS 7 Things you need to know! 1). Everything has its place. This means the wire whip always resides in the utensil crock and the bowls are always in the correct drawer. This rule will always expedite cleanup after you cook. It means when you need equipment you will always find it where it belongs because the last person who used it put it away in the right place. 2). Speaking of dish towels. Bacteria can live very happily in kitchen towels, dishcloths, sponges, and dirty potholders. Put them in the washing machine. They will then be washed. Use a clean towel and wash cloth each lab! 3). Cross Contamination. Don’t use a knife to cut up chicken or meat then use it to cut up other food without washing and disinfecting first in hot soapy water. And don’t reuse the same bowls for food preparation and serving until you scrub them out first. 4). Washing dishes. Clear the space on both sides of the sink. On one side place the things to be washed. Fill the plastic tub with hot soapy water. Leave the sink empty. Before you place the dirty dishes, pots, and so on near the sink, scrape all the scraps into a plastic lined garbage can. Dump all the silverware and cooking utensils, except sharp knives, into the tub first so they can soak. Start with the largest plates. Rinse with hot water as you go and dry the dishes immediately. Move on to the smaller plates and bowls. Tackle the glasses next. Next wash the silverware. Leave the dirty pots and pans for the last so that your dish water will stay as clean as possible.

15 + CLASSROOM STANDARDS 6). Two work areas. There will be two main work areas. The first will be the kitchen. If you are going to be the “Cook” or “Assistant Cook” you will be working in the kitchen area. The second work area will be the stainless steel worktables. If you will be the “Prep Cook” you will be working at the worktables. You will be chopping vegetables and fruits, weighing and measuring ingredients, etc. Your group will be responsible for both areas. Both areas must be cleaned before you will be excused from class. 5). Before you leave all dishes must be washed, dried, and put away! When you are done with the dishes, empty the sink, clean the food trap covering the drain, scrub the sink with cleanser and rinse it out. Wipe down the counter tops and worktables with disinfectant and put the dirty towels and wash cloths in the washer to be cleaned. 7). Kitchens and worktables must be cleaned before you leave class! All dishes washed, dried, and put away. Counters cleaned, worktables sanitized, and floors swept. You must check out with the teacher before you leave class ! If you leave before getting checked out by the teacher you will get an automatic F on the lab!
