Menu Engineering is a mathematical model for analysing the relative sale/profit earning potential of the indivual items on the menu which help you to focus on actual profit returned from a menu,Rather than the usual focus on the percentage cost of menu items.When comparing your best money earning relatives with their poor cousins who don’t appear to be earning their keep, goes like this.The star * performers, these are your golden eggs you rank them high on your list, they bring in good profits. It maybe that they are a good value for money or that they are simply irresistible, never tamper with this dish keep it original.The puzzle These items may be for an acquired taste not everyone's cup of tea, but they bring in a good profit, they may be seasonal and be very expensive, an example is Bluff oysters, Crayfish,or a very delicate dessert which takes much expertise to prepare or a very expensive bottle of wine, you can charge top dollar, you may even like to place them with their rich cousins the stars.Plough Horse These are your most sold items but not very good profit earner, they keep the costumers coming back and who knows they may bring with them somebody who likes Crayfish.The dog These items don’t sell well so you need to look at them differently and think of ways to improve them, make them by using a different method of cooking to cheapen The making costs or delete them and look at something completely different to replace them with.
Prep list is so you have all your ingredients for your mise en place having every thing in place saves time and any inconveniences to hold you up.Market list is important this helps with the money side of running your business, such as costs & profits, money going out and money coming in.
The menu has now been designed as degustation. The original menu was going to be a la cart. Because we have already practiced a la cart the experience of trying out degustation would be beneficial for future careers.

One reason to evaluate is to improve what we do. Everything we do and everything that affects us, we evaluate. We evaluate the way we perform, the performance of others, the products that we use in our lives and the food we eat. Our ability to analyse and evaluate is a primary defence mechanism that has been developed to a very fine level of understanding our environment and how we integrate into it. Often, evaluation takes place at a sub conscious level. Products that we use, especially food products, are evaluated immediately. As consumers we tend to evaluate products using value judgements. We look at different products and compare the merits of each. As Chefs we need to evaluate, consciously, by using criteria or specifications against which we can make balanced judgments. And continuously improve our personal abilities, food and profit/sustainability of our restaurants.
