To borrow the example in the first post from Thread: shortened:
I don't think it's a good idea to start learning how to cook from TV programme because some parts of preparation a meal are shortened.

If the intended meaning is what Keith Bradford suggests in Post 3: omitting certain stages in the cooking of a dish,
would the sentence work just as well with "abbreviated" instead of "shorten"?
