A must have! Feb. 17 2011
By Eduardo - Published on
Format: Plastic Comb Verified Purchase
As a culinary student this book is a must have for any student who wants to succeed. I used the previous version at school and it is so valuable it is hardly available to check out. When this book came out I decided to buy it and have had it just a few days and it is amazing how fast and easy requisition forms and mass quantity recipes are easy to convert. Thank you to everyone who put their hard work into this book. Now I need to buy the CD.rom version.

Great Resource! April 26 2012

This is a must have for all Food Service Professionals. It's a great reference for food costing and purchasing. I purchased this book for my food costing project for school. It has all the purchasing formulas, yields, costing meats, produce and the terminology used in professional kitchens.

An essential tool for accurate recipe development Nov. 10 2013
By ReneeC - Published on
Format: Plastic Comb Verified Purchase
This book isn't just about calculating yields (i.e., how much of a product you need to order to get the quantity you need for a recipe) -- it's also about translating from one way of measuring/purchasing a product to another. So, for example, if you're wondering how many ounces of usable kale you'll get from a bunch? It's in here. You're writing your recipe by weight, not volumetric, measures and accidentally wrote down "wheat berries, 1 cup"? You can get the standard weight equivalent of that cup right here. As someone who's trying to write more of her newly-developed recipes down, I'm finding The Book of Yields irreplaceable.

is a little better than the desktop Sept. 8 2014
By Marshall - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Invaluable tool for accurately costing menus. 5 stars for the information, however, purchased as a kindle book because I didn't want to wait for it to ship. I use win 8 but the book was not supported by the win 8 kindle app. It works with the kindle for desktop. I have to say, the kindle apps for windows eat balls... they are not very intuitive, especially in regards to touch response. The win 8 app, is a little better than the desktop, but as I said, this book is not supported by that format. Just a heads up to anyone unfamiliar with kindle for windows.
