Inconsistent Portion Sizes

Standardized recipes specify portion sizes as well as ingredients. If your portions are inconsistent from one meal to the next, guests become less trusting. It is even more annoying when portion sizes differ among guests at the same table.Human nature being what it is, guests with the smallest portions will feel cheated. Inconsistent portion sizes also make cost control impossible. Portion control is the key to managing your food cost and avoiding unhappy guests.
