The authors’ design in writing this textbook is based on tasks that a team of Certified Dietary Managers has identified as common to most foodservice operations. These tasks represent current practice in the United States. As the driving force of any foodservice department, the menu is the starting point of this textbook. The authors have structured the content and flow of material to build from that central concept. This book is intended as a resource for candidates preparing for the CDM Credentialing Exam and as a reference for working managers operating a foodservice department. The textbook is based upon and addresses topics that are included in the current CDM Detailed Exam Content Outline. Over 500 pages, © 2018. ISBN 978-0-692-04658-6
