This unit describes the performance outcomes, skills and knowledge required to prepare and present a limited range of simple menu items following standard recipes. While some cooking may be involved, there is no requirement to use the full range of basic cookery methods.
The unit applies to operational personnel in kitchens and catering facilities who require some cooking and food preparation skills, but who are not qualified cooks. It may apply to a hospitality or catering organisation, such as cafes, kiosks, canteens and cafeterias or to organisations where catering forms only a small part of the business operation. Dishes prepared are simple in nature, and may include fast food, takeaway food and items that have been prepared off site and need re-thermalising.
It applies to individuals who work with very little independence and under close supervision. They follow predefined organisational procedures and report any discrepancies to a higher level staff member for action.
