Will Culinary Videos Increase Dietetic Students' Culinary Skills and Food Knowledge?Journal of Family and Consumer Sciences (2013)
The food and foodservice industry are one of the largest growing areas for employing Registered Dietitians (RD). High growth rates are anticipated in a number of non-traditional areas for RD. There is justification for requiring culinary skills in dietetic training as knowledge of food and food preparation play a role in all areas of dietetics. The purpose of this pilot study was to determine if the inclusion of basic culinary technique videos in a college Advanced Foods class would improve student culinary skills and food knowledge. The results of this study indicate significant improvement in test scores for the class viewing culinary videos. The results of this study are beneficial for Dietetic Educators and Family and Consumer Sciences teachers.
