Fractions and Recipes Activity

Introduction
Welcome to Top Chef – Clapham Edition! Congratulations on making it
to this prestigious competition. Today, you will be given recipes with
fractions in them to convert so that they will serve different numbers
of people. Accuracy is important! Take your time and use your math
skills for a successful recipe conversion. Who will be the next Top
Chef?

Tasks
You will convert three recipes (Tasks 1, 2, 3, and 4) to serve more or
less people. You will need to appropriately convert fractions so that the
recipes will make correctly for another round in the competition.

If you need help remembering how to add fractions of all kinds, visit
the resource page of my web site for study jams videos and more!

Task 1:
1. Look at the recipe for Jam Thumbprints
2. Re-write the recipe so it makes three times as many cookies.
3. Now rewrite the recipe so it serves 12.
4. Re-write the directions to the recipes by changing the numbers so

the recipes make sense.

Task 2:
1. Look at the recipe for Blueberry Stuffed Baked French Toast
2. Re-write the fractions to the recipe so it serves 4.
3. Re-write the directions to the recipe by changing the numbers so

the recipe makes sense.

Task 3:
1. Look at the recipe for Fresh Tomato and Basil Pasta.
2. Are you feeling the pressure of the other contestants yet?
3. Re-write the recipe so it serves 15.
4. Re-write the directions to the recipe by changing the numbers so

the recipe makes sense.

Task 4:
1. Uh..Oh…New Challenge! Are you up to it? Do you have the fractions

you need?

2. Re-write the Fresh Tomato and Basil Pasta so it serves 25
3. Re-write the directions to the recipe by changing the numbers so

the recipe makes sense.

Conclusion
Congratulations! You made it through your first Top Chef competitions.

Bonus Task:
1. Find a recipe on the web that contains at least 3 fractions.
2. Re-write the recipe for half as many people.
3. Re-write the recipe for three times as many people as the original

recipe.

4. Include the URL of the recipe you find.

Follow-up:
1. What did you learn about fractions from this activity?
2. Did you find some easier to convert than others? Why do you think

this is so?

Jam Thumbprints

1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt

2/3 cup butter or margarine
3/4 finely chopped walnuts
1/3 cup sugar
2 egg yolks

1/3 cup cherry or strawberry preserves

Stir together flour and salt. Beat butter for 30 seconds. Add sugar
and beat until fluffy. Add egg yolks and vanilla; beat well. Add dry
ingredients to beaten mixture, beating until well combined. Cover and
chill 1 hour. Shape into 1 inch ball, roll in egg whites, then roll in finely
chopped walnuts. Place 1 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Press

Makes 36

Blueberry-Stuffed Baked French Toast

1 loaf white bread, cubed
4 cups blueberries (fresh or frozen)
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
1 cup sugar, divided
2 tsp. vanilla extract, divided
1/4 cup sour cream
1/2 loaf French bread

7 eggs
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1-1/2 cups milk
1-1/2 cups half-and-half
TOPPING
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 cup brown sugar
2 Tbsp. dark corn syrup
1 cup chopped walnuts

Place bread cubes into a greased 9 x 13 pan (this makes a full pan).
Spread blueberries over the bread. Beat cream cheese, 1/2 sugar, 1
tsp. vanilla and sour cream until smooth. Carefully spoon over
blueberries. Cut 8 or 10 1-inch slices of French bread, place over the
berries.

Beat the eggs well, add the remaining 1/2 cup sugar, 1 tsp. vanilla, milk,
half-and-half; beat again. Pour the egg and milk mixture over the
French bread slices. Cover and refrigerate overnight.

Remove from refrigerator about 45-60 minutes before baking. Stir
together topping ingredients; spread carefully over the bread.

Bake uncovered at 350°F for 60-90 minutes, or until bubbly. You may
need to cover with foil the last 15 minutes to keep it from getting too
brown. Let stand for about 10 minutes before cutting. Spring with
powdered sugar if desired.

Notes
Set pan on cookie tray while baking, it will likely bake over.
