A must have! Feb. 17 2011
By eddie - Published on Amazon.com
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.

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.

Reviewing Cost Control Oct. 19 2011
By Thomas M. Thomas - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Plastic Comb Verified Purchase
The book is a great asset to the college text book. It helps one to understand the process of costing a recipe and how to purchase. The college text book is great but it is nice to see another prospective,

An essential tool for accurate recipe development Nov. 10 2013
By ReneeC - Published on Amazon.com
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.
