Chef Notepad helps busy chefs to easily and efficiently store and manage their recipes, food costs and more so that they can focus on doing what they do best - prepare delicious food. Chef Notepad is a custom-built Saas (Software as a service) product which enables chefs to cost their recipes, store ingredients, manage stocktake and suppliers, all while accounting for the complexities of kitchen and restaurant operations. We worked closely with a QLD based chef to bring his vision to life.

Chef Notepad is a program built by chefs for chefs. The challenge was to build a program that was simple and user friendly but still took into account the complexities of food costs, wastage and a number of other things I had no idea chefs had to contend with.

The solution was to create a friendly, modern brand to accompany a minimal and easy to use program which accelerates a chefs workflow.
