As chefs, we are naturally gifted when it comes to creating something tasty and visually appealing at the drop of a hat; however, it becomes a challenge to put the creative vision on paper and ask another to duplicate it! I know this firsthand because I was THAT GUY, writing “bad” recipes. Chefs must be specific and thorough when developing recipes (remember, the devil is in the details). Once you have created a recipe, it is very important to have someone else verify your work and give you feedback; this ensures that the recipe can be replicated and makes sense. Always remember: Consistent recipe writing equals less mistakes, less headaches for you and plenty of satisfied customers.
