East coast and I work together through the process. Here is an overview of our current recipe development process:
INSPIRATION: Defining the inspiration and choosing the parameters
- Defining an approach,
- Gathering facts
- Exploring techniques and ingredients
- Synthesizing the information into a concept
- Recipe overview
- Flavor profile
- Visual Mock-up
- Working through the draft and create an initial recipe
- Test the flavor, composition, plating, etc.
- Creating an final dish with plating
- Photography of the final dish
- Creating a final recipe that others can reproduce
During our post-game analysis, we aim to refine and tweak the process to enable a better development the next time around.
