    Recipe FAQs

  4. I'd like to modify a recipe on the software? Is this possible?
    Answer: Yes, you can modify any of the recipes provided on ChefTec Tutor for Professional Baking. Simply make the changes within the recipe. The changes will be saved when you close the recipe.

  5. How do I rescale a recipe?
    Answer: To rescale a recipe means to adjust the yield and number of portions of a recipe. Within ChefTec Tutor when you change the yield or number of portions to a recipe, the ingredient quantities in the recipe will change accordingly. To do this, click on the "Scale" button from the 2nd row of buttons below the menu bar. To change the Yield, enter in the new quantity and unit (if the unit is changing). When finished, click "OK." You will return to the recipe and see that the new Yield is now part of the recipe. The number of portions has recalculated based on the new Yield and the quantities of the ingredients in the recipe have been adjusted.

    To change the Number of Portions, click on the radio dial next to it and enter the new quantity. When finished, click "OK." You will return to the recipe and see that the new Number of Portions is now part of the recipe. The yield has recalculated based on the new Number of Portions and the quantities of the ingredients in the recipe have been adjusted.

  6. I adjusted the scale of a recipe. I want to return to the original yield and number of portions, but I don't remember what they were. How can I figure this out?
    Answer: This is easy to do. Click on "Scale" from the second row of buttons below the menu bar. Half way down the Scale Recipe box that opens is a field for the Original Yield. You will see the original Yield and Number of Portions within that field. Click on "Apply" and then "OK" and the recipe will revert to the original yield and number of portions.

  7. How can I review the costs and nutritional values involved in a recipe?
    Answer: Within the Recipe frame are tabs for Costs and Nutrition. Simply click on these tabs to see cost and nutritional values for the recipe. If there is a photo of the recipe available, it can be found within the picture tab.

  8. How many new recipes can be added to ChefTec Tutor for Professional Baking?
    Answer: You are able to add up to 150 new recipes to ChefTec Tutor for Professional Baking.

  9. How do I add a new recipe?
    Answer: To add a new recipe, you must first open the list of recipes already included in this software. When the list of recipes is on screen, click on the "New" button on the second row of buttons below the menu bar. Notice that there are two buttons that say "New." The button on the right is for creating a new menu. The New button on the left is for creating a new recipe. Click on this one. A blank recipe field will open and you can begin to input your new recipe.

    If you have another recipe already open and you wish to add a new recipe, click on the "New" on the second row of buttons below the menu bar (last button on the right). A blank recipe field will open and you can begin to input your new recipe.

    When you close out of the recipe you have just added, you will be asked if you want to save it. Be sure to click "Yes." The recipe will then be added to the Recipe List within ChefTec Tutor. It can also be opened and modified at any time.

  10. After adding a new recipe and reviewing the costs and nutritional values, certain ingredients are not indicated as not being included. Why is this?
    Answer: A specific unit of measurement must be included for an ingredient to be included in the analysis. An ingredient that is measured "to taste" or "as needed" does not provide enough information to allow for cost or nutritional values.

  11. Each recipe has been given one or more categories (Custards, Frozen Desserts, PIes, etc.). How do I adjust the categories to one of the recipes or assign categories to a recipe I've added?
    Answer: Creating or changing recipe categories is very easy to do. When you have the recipe you want adjust open, click on the "Category" button on the second row of buttons below the menu bar. When the Select Value box opens, you can select or deselect a category. If you want to add a new category that is not already listed, click on "New" and enter the new category name. If you want to rename a category in the given list, highlight the category in the list and then click on "Rename." When you are finished, click "OK" to return to the recipe. The new or adjusted categories will be listed at the top of the recipe (to the right of the cook time).

  12. How do I print out a recipe?
    Answer: To print a recipe, first be sure the recipe you want printed is open on your screen. Click on "Print" from the second row of buttons below the menu bar. If you want to see what the printed recipe will look like before you actually print, click on "Preview" from the second row of buttons below the menu bar. To then print, click on the printer icon at the top of the screen. To exit the Preview, click on "Close" to return to the recipe function of ChefTec Tutor.

  13. How do I create a Shopping List?
    Answer: A Shopping List can be created for one recipe at a time. To do so, you must open the recipe for which you want a Shopping List. With the recipe open, click on the "Shop List" button on the second row (second from the right) of buttons below the menu bar. A preview of the Shopping List will appear. If you wish to print this list, click on the printer icon at the top of your screen.

  14. Can I create a Shopping List to include more than one recipe?
    Answer: Within ChefTec Tutor only 1 Shopping List can be created for each recipe. It is not possible to combine Shopping Lists.

  16. When determining the cost of an item being added to an Invoice, do I enter a cost per unit of the item?
