Earlier we introduced two important abbreviations, AP (as purchased) and EP (edible portion). A third expression sometimes used is AS, meaning as served.When foods such as fruits are served raw, AS may be the same as EP. But if the food is cooked, these weights are different.
In the case of the veal scaloppine, your recipe portions, and therefore your portion costs, are based on raw weight. For example, your scaloppine recipe might call for 5^2 ounces of raw meat per portion.
