As such, writing skills are not being emphasized , although, these future chefs are required to write about food review, restaurant reviews, recipes, tastes and many more. In order to assist instructors, blogs were introduced to these future chefs in their culinary classes. Over a period of a year, blogs were used as a tool to help future chefs express their culinary palate instead of the traditional way of ‘hand in’ classroom assignments. This research seeks to investigate lecturers or instructors’ point of view using blogs as a technology tool in the culinary field.
