Still, it's not up to us to do your homework. Sorry but there are many mothers and fathers here who believe students should do their own homework and not let others do it.

If the words came off a menu, they could be made up by the chef who comprised the menu.

I agree it is not up to you to do my homework, but if I have looked at all the resources I have and online, is it wrong to ask for help on the couple I cannot find?

This is what is in our chocolate cremeaux, but it really does not tell me what a cremaux is.

QTY UNIT INGREDIENTS 240 grams Milk 240 grams Cream 48 grams Sugar 6 ea Egg yolks 200 grams Dark chocolate Procedure:
1. Combine the milk, cream, and half the sugar in a medium sized pot, and bring it to a scald.
2. Combine the second half of the sugar with the egg yolks, and temper the hot cream into the yolks.
3. Return to the stove, and on medium heat, cook until it coats the back of a spoon.
4. Shock in an ice bath to stop the cooking, then strain through a chinoise over the chocolate.
5. Let the mixture sit for one minute, the mix with a submersion blender until smooth.

Actually, when spelled correctly, I did find all your terms online through google. The issue is, you're spelling things incorrectly. And, yeah, asking for help on a forum is wrong. It's better to go to your teacher and say "I looked everywhere, please help" rather than asking us. Your teacher may be able to help you find where to find these terms without the help of an online forum that not everyone has access to.

Don't listen to some people on this board -- they have issues. Feel free to ask, and most of us will try to help you.

I do believe the general consensus from everyone I've encountered, including most mods/admins, is that students need to do their own work rather than ask us to answer their homework questions. I know as a mom I would never want my daughter to cheat in such a way.

Hi, monkey. I don't know your age, but I think you should take it upon yourself to do some old-fashioned digging when it comes to doing your homework.

That doesn't mean to say that you shouldn't ask questions of those who may have some knowledge. However, take it upon yourself to search the resources at your fingertips and glean what you can from those. Beyond that, when you reach a point that you need more help, as others have suggested, enlist the help of your instructors/teachers. Those who have the experience and knowledge will be able to help you the most.

Thanks Katie ~ that's all I'm saying. You have resources and if others are having trouble finding the terms, the teacher will help you all find the terms. The point is for the class to learn. Let the teacher help you learn. That's her/his job.

I understand what you are both saying and agree. I would ask my teacher, but the assignment is due tomorrow. I just kind of made up a definition for cremeaux based on the recipe from our packet we have.

Thanks for everyone's help, and I was not trying to cheat. I did look in all my books and looked online.
