After logging into the system, go to the ePlanning - Recipes tab.


Now you are in the "Recipes" tab.

In the box at the top left, a recipe number and a designation (name) of the recipe can be entered and searched for.

In the "Recipe overview" box below, either all recipes entered in the system or, if a recipe search has been performed, the results of this search are displayed. A new recipe can be created via the "New recipe" button. The recipes are divided into different processing statuses (drafts, released, resubmission, templates).


Now please click on the button "new recipe".

The "Recipe" box then opens on the right with various fields in which information for the recipes can be entered.


First give the recipe the name "Spaghetti Bolognese" and assign it to the recipe group "Base recipe" by clicking on the magnifying glass icon.


Next, specify 1 person for the calculation base and select "500 grams" as the net weight. The sales price is set to 3.00 euros.


Next, click on the "Add ingredient" button. A new dialog window opens, in which ingredients can be selected. You can search for catalog items, basic recipes, or non-order items. In addition, you can search for articles from specific suppliers/catalogs.

Now please search for the term "spaghetti" by selecting the catalog search and choose from one of the articles displayed thereupon via the plus symbol and then close the window via the X symbol on the top right.


Then adjust the weight of the ingredient you just added to the calculation base (350 grams).


Then click on "+ Add ingredient" again and search for the term "Bolognese" in the catalog search and add an available item via the plus symbol.

If the article has not yet been added to a favorites list, you will be prompted to do so in a dialog box. Add the article to the "Recipe-relevant" favorites list.


Now adjust the weight of the calculation base again for the new ingredient (150 grams).


Now please click on the "Save" button to save all previous entries.

Next, various instructions can be added to the recipe in text form in the "Recipe texts" tab.

For this purpose, there are the input fields "Prose text for menu", "Processing note" and "HACCP note text", with the possibility of inserting predefined texts.


Under the "Recipe images" tab, images can be added to the recipe. A distinction is made between menu card images and production images.


In the "Allergens" tab, the recipe can be marked with regard to the allergens it contains. Since this example contains noodles, gluten must be marked as an allergen!

If there is a check mark under the "from ingredients" field, it means that the supplier of the ingredient has already labeled it with one or more allergens.


Additives are deposited according to the same principle as for allergens.


In the "Nutritional value" tab, the nutritional values of the recipes can either be entered manually or transferred by entering the BLS (federal food key).

The magnifying glass icon can be used to select from federal food codes already stored in the system.

Alternatively, the nutritional values of the stored ingredients can be taken over via the button below (provided that these are stored by the supplier).

Now please click on the magnifying glass icon and search for the term "Spaghetti Bolognese" in the dialog window that opens. Select a suitable BLS from the search results (see screenshot) and click on "Apply marked position(s)".


Now all nutritional values of the BLS are automatically taken over:


Under "Dislikes", predefined dislikes can be added to the recipe via the plus symbol, if they occur in the recipe.


Additional information can be stored in the "Additional Info" tab. These include:

Additional info, food type, menu lines, GN containers, GN ladle plan, category, cooking method, equipment use, as well as a choice option for "Resample relevant" and "Temperature measurement".


Under "Cook & Chill", a cold chain can be defined for the recipe. A time for re-cooling (from, to) with the corresponding ° Celsius values is defined, and a best-before date is stored.


Finally, you can release the recipe to specific users, user groups, company codes and sites under the "permissions" tab. By checking the "read" box, the recipe can be viewed. With an additional checkmark at "edit" the recipe can also be edited.
