UGH! What is there to say about this class. Other than, WHAT WAS I THINKING?
The instructor is a "non-chef". But, he has been in the industry for about 30 years. The class will cover everything for running a food and beverage establishment. Our first homework assignment is to read two chapters of our textbook and come up with eight questions and answers for each chapter. He will use our questions for the mid-term and finals.
