Section A: The Culinary Workshop Restaurant
You have been employed by The Culinary Workshop Restaurant for a while now. You have been asked to develop menus to give a wider range of choice that differ from restaurants in the area.
The menus need to be designed and costed as a proposal for your Head Chef to make a decision on the menus that will be used going forward.
The design of the menu is also changing, so you need to develop your menu to include The Culinary Workshop’s logos (these have been provided for you). The logo may also be used elsewhere in the menu.
The Culinary Workshop’s kitchen has limited space and facilities.
The following equipment is available. It is important to keep this in mind when planning your menu.
Large equipment Small equipment

• Four open-range stove-top burners above the oven

Section B: The MenuCoster Tool
For this assessment you are required to use the MenuCoster application. The MenuCoster provides recipe costing, nutritional analysis and menu pricing.
Ingredient prices are updated directly from nation-wide suppliers as often as they change therefore recipe prices are always up-to-date.
Dishes costing are to be sourced from MenuCoster (details of how to access MenuCoster are given below).
• When calculating the cost/price of ingredients, first convert to Kg (Kilograms) to calculate the amounts required for each recipe.
• Some recipes in MenuCoster are for more than one person, you are required to work out the cost of all menu items for one dish.
• When preparing the menu cost, it is recommended to work out the cost of the Cyclical Menu first as this contains nearly all the items for the other menus.
You have been provided with instruction on how to use the MenuCoster application below:
