Kitchen Management Videos for Professional Chefs
If you are involved in managing a kitchen crew, developing recipes, implementing recipes, or executing on-site or off-site events (caterings), then you need to learn how to use Excel. It doesn’t matter whether you are a lead line cook or a regional executive chef, Excel is your “mental mise en place” tool for organizing any project in the kitchen. Knowing how to use it will make your life easier and your kitchen/s more organized.
Although Excel is primarily known for its calculating abilities, it is also extremely powerful and versatile when it comes to planning complex projects. This is where Excel can be extremely helpful to the chef. Once you get through “the learning curve” of how to use the software you will become an organizational master. Use Excel to create your own: recipe templates, prep lists, order sheets, inventory sheets, to plan caterings/banquets, for staff evaluations…anything.
Many of these videos have entire pages of tutorial content created here on Chefs Resources, so they will open to that page on our site rather taking you to YouTube which only hosts the video w/o the extra content. Many will also have a free downloadable Excel worksheet.
* A compatible version of Microsoft Excel is required on your system in order to get the free download. We do not provide or sell Microsoft Excel.
