Restaurant management : an examination of planning and managing a restaurant meal
Food preparation and presentation is important in both restaurant management and the field of dietetics. The success of a restaurant is dictated by the planning phases and the management of employees and resources. Likewise, proper food preparation is a necessary part of cooking and eating healthy. Ball State University provides students with the opportunity to learn the meal planning and preparation process. Each student plans and manages a meal as their final project. I completed this project in the fall of 2013. I researched the British culture, developed a menu reflecting my research, planned activities for each employee, and managed meal day operations. Building from experience of running the restaurant, I will analyze and reflect upon the components used to complete the tasks of planning and managing a meal.
