A standard recipe is a necessary first step for pricing out an item or dish and for effectively controlling the eventual cost to prepare. The standard recipe is a clear and precise list of ingredients and methods required to prepare the dish. Standard recipes are necessary to establish quality, consistency of taste and texture, as well as the final presentation. In some kitchens, recipes are printed on laminated cards and include photographs of the finished dish to maintain this integrity.
