Will Culinary Videos Increase Dietetic Students’ Culinary Skills and Food Knowledge?

 

Abstract

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 strong scientific justification for requiring culinary skills in dietetic training as knowledge of food and food preparation play a role in all areas of dietetics. Teaching these skills often demands increased technology use in the classroom. The purpose of this 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.
