1. Select One Item of International Produce from the Website. Describe the
produce and determine the origin country.
Durian - stinky fruit Notes: The weird and smelly durian has attracted a
cult-like following. It's called the King of Fruits by aficionados in Southeast Asia,
but Westerners usually don't care much for its mild oniony flavor. Once cut open,
the durian gives off such a strong and foul odor that it's banned on Singaporean
subways. Look for it in Asian markets. The boiled seeds of the durian are called
betons. The price is $55.00
2. Select one Fresh Fish from the Seafood Department. Describe the fish. Find
information about that type of fish as it relates to the food industry. Get
background production information.

3. Select one bakery item from the list. Get Mr. Bahnsen’s approval for that
item. Find a description of this type of baked product.
Cuban Bread - Although it is made with the same basic ingredients as
French bread, the baking procedure for Cuban bread is different. The dough is put
in a cold oven, set above a pan of boiling water, and left to rest for a few minutes
before the oven is turned on. Because the bread continues to rise as the oven heats,
its crust is very thin and crisp. It is made without fat, so it is best if eaten on the
day it is baked, as it will go stale quickly. You can try this method with any yeast
4. Select one of the meat items listed on the website and find a description of

mushroom (takes longer to cook)
