Transcript of Recipe Developer
There isn't many benefits to being a recipe developer. You can be credited to dishes, and cuisines invented by you.
A recipe developer can make up to $56K
Recipe developers may start their career in the kitchen of a restaurant where they receive hands-on training. Their career may progress to developing new recipes for the restaurant or they may be hired by a commercial company to test recipes and then develop new ones. Some recipe developers work in test kitchens of magazines, cooking shows, etc. They may work as a freelance developer as well.
Seek an Associate's degree from a local culinary institute to gain exposure to different foods. Most institutes require students to take courses involving the history, culture and ingredients of foods from different regions. You can take electives on pastries, Italian food and dozens of other topics to help you find your niche.
What it takes to be good Recipe Developer
Passionate about food and cooking
Up on food trends
Great at combining flavors
Good at remembering ingredients and amounts
Some people see a recipe developer as an artist in the kitchen: pairing this ingredient with that, adding a pinch more of this herb or spice. In some ways, there is a certain science going on, but mostly, this culinary professional combines curiosity with a good understanding of what flavors and textures go well together, how to combine just the right amounts and how to cook the dish to perfection. Being able to write it all down in simple and logical steps and language is critical too!
Not much technology is used, maybe a computer to type out, print, research, and change some recipes.
