Chefs Resources Video Tutorial Preview

Below is a preview of what is available in the  Chefs Resources Exclusive Video Library area where you will find all of our training videos. Many of these are available scattered throughout the site and/or on our YouTube channel. And some of them (the ones which have to “Watch Video” button) are exclusive content which is available no where else.

Our videos feature Chef-centric content, insights, and analysis by 30 year veteran Chef David Buchanan as he examines the challenges facing today’s professional Chefs. He dives into deep explanations about food cost control in the 40 Thieves of Food Cost (53 minute analysis!). In Restaurant Inventory Control part 1 & 2 Chef David discusses the best way to take inventory and he reveals how to analyse your ending  inventory sheets to find often missed money-saving errors which impact your food cost percentage. Knowing these insights can help make you more informed and better prepared for your P&L meetings, often with the result of fixing food cost problems which have to do with inventory accounting issues.

There is also a one-time $10 access fee which grants access to all of the video tutorials on Chefs Resources, some of which are exclusive to this access portal and are not available anywhere else.
