Linking to hospitality and catering in science

Linking learning in science to the vocational course a student is following can be very motivational.

Microbes are widely used in food production to preserve food, enhance flavour or improve texture, and so this is the ideal topic in biology to grab the attention of students who are following vocational catering courses. This resource list highlights some great activities and practical work which look at this area more closely, as well as nutrition and the use of enzymes in food production.

Whilst this list provides a source of information and ideas for experimental work, it is important to note that recommendations can date very quickly.  Do NOT follow suggestions which conflict with current advice from CLEAPSS, SSERC or recent safety guides. eLibrary users are responsible for ensuring that any activity, including practical work, which they carry out is consistent with current regulations related to Health and Safety and that they carry an appropriate risk assessment.
