Turkish Cuisine Chef - How to Apply Menu Engineering?
Today, the gastronomy industry has started to implement New Food Trends with new concepts in 2022. While the most successful restaurant businesses are trying to regain nearly two years of losses after the pandemic, they have already started to try innovative gastronomy trends in this regard. Menu engineering and Menu Design are not very old when we think about today. It is a field of study that came to the fore when calculating profit and loss in the Matrix system and Miller Method in restaurant management in the 1980s and was observed to be successful in the following years.
For those who ask what should they pay attention to when opening a new restaurant, what should they do to become a permanent restaurant owner, how can a newly opened restaurant be successful?...
Frankly, I have seen completely contradictory explanations and definitions in different studies on this subject. Recipes that are clearly not fully defined have confused menu engineering people.
What is matrix system? & What is the Miller Method?
In mathematics, a matrix can be called a rectangular table of numbers. More generally, an abstract table of quantities that can be added or multiplied. In other words, it is a spreadsheet that displays natural numbers by arranging them in a rectangle. In other words, it is a professional calculation method most used by artificial intelligence today. There are Matrix types and Matrix types within themselves.
Although calculation, which is one of the basic principles in menu engineering, is encountered in academic studies as the Matrix system and Miller Method, the truth of the matter is "algebra" when we consider our own culture. It was developed by names such as Hârizmî and Ömer Hayyam in the Near East. The real source of the matrix system and Miller's Method is also algebra. If I'm going to give an example personally, I would like to give an example from our own culture, our own history and our own scientists.
If I were to explain the concept of menu engineering in the clearest way, (Menu Consulting) it is more than just a calculation method. Just as you cannot develop anything without knowing the truth, you cannot manage and dominate something that you cannot measure the balance of expenditure and income! same concept.
Menu engineering, which is one of the most frequently asked questions by those who want to open a new restaurant, and success-oriented studies consist of the following titles in the main theme;
  • Emotional Analysis,
  • Emotional intelligence,
  • The Most Appropriate Ideal Weight,
  • General Budget Accounts,
  • General Expense Estimates,
  • Eye Movement Targets
  • Graphic design,
  • Ideal Price,
  • Ideal Marketing,
  • Cost of Materials,
  • Menu Colors,
  • Profitability in the Menu,
  • Guest Communication,
  • Guest Psychology,
  • Featured Foods,
  • Numerical methods,
  • Affordable Cost,
  • Product Likeability,
  • Product Contribution,
  • Pricing on Products,
  • Cost Analysis of Products,
  • Descriptive Language of the Food Menu,
  • Meal Sale Price,
  • Sales Forecasts of Meals,
  • New Investment Decisions,
  • Management Accounting,
Professionally, the people who have the title of menu engineering in the Best Restaurants in the City can consist of the following;
  • Experienced A la Carte Chefs,
  • Restaurant Managers with Required Experience,
  • Foundation Restaurant Operator,
  • Kitchen Section Chiefs,
  • Owner of Restaurant Business,
  • Regulars of the restaurant for at least 2 years,
  • Tradesmen in the Supply Chain for At least 2 Years,
  • Head Chef with Sufficient Experience
Before moving on to the questions and answers in Menu Engineering, which is the main topic, some of the most important tips that I should say about the importance of Menu Engineering may be as follows;
A meal that makes very little money on the restaurant food menu may actually be among the bestsellers. Would removing this dish have negative or positive consequences for the restaurant's interests?
  • %-What Should the Share of the Least Sold Meal in Total Meal Revenues be?
  • What %-The Share of the Most Sold Food in the Total General Expenses Should Be?
  • What %-The Share of a Main Meal in the Total Should be in General Expenses?
  • What % of Salary Amount Should A Normal Waitress Receiving Total Meals Sold In A Month Be?
  • What %-Shall of Food Revenues and Beverage Revenues in Total Revenues Should Be in a Middle Class Restaurant?
  • What %-The Share of Kitchen Staff Expenses in Total Should Be in Restaurant General Expenses?
  • What %-The Share of Energy Expenses in Total Should Be in the General Expenses in a Restaurant with a High Limit?
If you do not know the answer to such questions, it means that you do not have control over your business. I could multiply these questions. Finding answers to these questions is not difficult. You can approach the solution with a few items that you will put in the restaurant Management Circular. In addition, a few additional details that you may want in Restaurant Management Reports can make your hand better.
For all these, there are not very expensive programs, just an "excel" program and you need to know the simple formulas within and between the pages.
An excel spreadsheet that you can easily formulate can work for you while making Cost-Cost Calculations in Restaurant Management. After the necessary training is given to the Tables and Minutes in Restaurant Management on this subject, if you enter only the daily income or expense data in the table with 3 or 4 formulas, it can automatically give you daily % rates in at least 40 subjects in general. In addition, you can instantly view weekly and monthly much clearer data on your computer if the new tables that you can put into items in Surveys and Forms are filled in by your relevant personnel.

Finally, my word to those who are wondering the answer to the question of what are the links of the menu engineering chain;
Menu engineering is like the gears of a motor. It can be applied by any institution as a team. But as a person, it takes a lot of experience and merit. The lack of one of the ones I listed below will also cause a lack of menu engineering. This job is a team job. Unfortunately, today, there are almost no people who can do menu engineering, which will bring success-oriented guest satisfaction. Because menu engineering is a work that can be accomplished by people who have trained themselves in different fields with personal efforts of professions that are not related to each other.
If I were to list the areas of expertise that can perfect menu engineering in gastronomy, I would say those who have knowledge and experience about the words marked in yellow. I would like to emphasize that menu engineering is actually a much more detailed profession if you examine it by clicking on the relevant words, and as I mentioned before, if the gears of an engine work perfectly, the engine will also work and give the appropriate power. to your goal.
