To complete the Recipe Cost Cards, here are some guidelines. An example is also attached below:
Invoice Cost is the Purchase Price from your Inventory Sheet.
Invoice Amount Unit is the As Purchased Unit from your Inventory Sheet. If the Recipe Unit is in ounces, this Purchased Unit should also be in ounces, or likewise if the Recipe unit is in lbs., we want the Cost per unit to be in lbs. For example: Ground Beef in the Chili con carne recipe – the Recipe calls for 10 lbs. So, we want to show the cost per Invoice Unit as a Cost per lb.
Cost per Invoice Unit is the cost per ounce, pound or each, as noted in the Recipe Unit. Sometimes this may be on the GFS information but if it is not then divide the total Invoice Amount Unit by the As Purchased Unit to get the cost per ounce, pound or each.
Yield % items are highlighted in yellow. You will find this product in your Book of Yields, determine the Yield % and then calculate the AP Needed. Your total cost will be based on this AP Needed.
Extended Total Cost is the recipe amount (or AP Needed if it was required) times the Cost per Invoice Unit.
Total the cost of the recipe and then divide by the number of portions the recipe makes to get the portion cost.
Calculate the Selling Price based on the given FC% on the recipe cost card.
While working on this assignment, “Save your work” often.
When all work is complete, upload a total of 6 documents in the Assignment link provided.
If one of the Product Numbers listed on GFS is not coming up as available on the website. You can try to search for a substitution. Let your instructor know the item and item # you chose as a substitution.
