A. GENERAL INFORMATION No. 1(2)
INFORMATION FOR STANDARDIZED RECIPES
RECIPE CONVERSION
Since few dining facilities serve exactly 100 persons, and, in some instances, the acceptable size portion may be smaller or larger,
it is often necessary to reduce or increase a recipe. You may adjust the recipe to yield the number of portions needed, or to use the
amount of ingredients available, or to produce a specific number of smaller portions. When increasing or decreasing a recipe, the
division or multiplication of pounds and ounces is simplified when decimals are used.
1. To convert the quantities to decimals, use this table:
