"Good points Chef! I like to create a gallery of buffet components. Its good to classify these by station but its optional. Certain components will be required (like rolls and butter, salad mix, etc.) and other components are Chef's Choice. The…"

"Great points regarding the lack of time Chef! I enjoy working with top flight chefs (especially ACF quality). The initial work does look outrageous but once completed, the time savings in the future are tremendous."

Basic Recipe Costing - Part 1

You may have lots of cookbooks, proprietary recipes, books with food yield statistics, market data, shopping lists, inventory count sheets, supplier quotes, product mix reports, quarterly tracking reports and other documents. A professional recipe model should be designed to integrate all of this useful information.

Hey there!
Just joined, Been to SL any lately? I've had to focus on a few other- time consuming-jobs, I should bew back in SL in about a month with full force! By the summer I will be opening a sim with all the F&B frills for the students. Want to emulate some games (something like Ohio State Univ. nutrition sim) but having to do with food management and menu developement, any ideas?
Have a great New Year
