For upper-division undergraduate and graduate level courses in restaurant management, foodservice equipment, and hospitality management courses.This comprehensive text has become a standard for designing and equipping a foodservice facility. In addition to working in a number of worldwide foodservice facilities, Dr. Kotschevar has been a culinary consultant for the United Nations, Pope John Paul II, and General Foods.
