The French menu : the design and development of a web-based application for chefs, restaurateurs and waitrons on the writing and understanding of menus in French
Thesis (MPhil (Modern Foreign Languages))--University of Stellenbosch, 2008.
This study focuses on foreign language teaching and learning in the professional workplace. A gap was perceived in the catering industry where chefs and waitrons are required to use French cooking terminology in their profession without ready access to the correct usage of this terminology. The purpose of this study is to address this gap and to offer a solution to the observed need. The study concentrates on the reading and writing of menus in French. The reason for this focus is that this is the area where French cooking terminology is arguably needed, as it is here where the incorrect usage of the French language is most evident.
