It is a book that guides food service students and professionals in the use of mathematical skills to successfully perform their duties as a culinary professional or as a manager of a food service business. Now out in the 5th edition, this book is unique because it follows a logical step-by-step process to illustrate and demonstrate the importance of understanding and using math concepts to effectively make money in this demanding business. Part 1 trains the reader to use the calculator, while Part 2 reviews basic math fundamentals. Subsequent parts address math essentials in food preparation and math essentials in food service record keeping while the last part of the book concentrates on managerial math.
