Menu & Recipe Development

Chef Inspired Menu and Recipe Creation


Balancing cutting edge flavors and visual appeal with food science is what we do best.

Food is the most crucial element of a restaurant’s identity, and long term financial success. Menu development has never been more important than it is today. Guests today are demanding menu choices that are unique, fresh, healthy, and compelling. They want a memorable experience that can be captured and shared within social group circles. The menu today must be chef-inspired and include farm to table options, sustainable proteins, locally sourced produce, meat, and seafood options.  We carefully create imaginative and award-winning menu selections that deliver the crave-ability and “WOW ” factor in flavor, visual appeal, and value that drives repeatability and social sharing. The key foundation of a restaurant is food, number one on the runway, and the only reason you are in business.  Great food separates world-class restaurants from the average restaurants that transform to increase market share and profitability. International Restaurant and Hospitality Consulting Group have created 100’s of menus and thousands of handcrafted culinary and handcrafted beverage options around the globe.
