Restaurant Prosperity Formula

Focusing on the operational and cultural aspects of running a restaurant, Peters offers a system--the Restaurant Prosperity Formula(TM)--that allows these businesses to not only survive but thrive in one of the world's most competitive industries. In this book (which the author calls "the most comprehensive restaurant owner manual you've ever read"), restaurant owners will learn the fundamentals needed to accomplish three goals: simplifying operations, making more money than ever before, and bringing balance back to their lives so they can enjoy the benefits of the first two goals!

At the Chef's Table

Culinary Creativity in Elite Restaurants - the creative work of chefs at top restaurants in New York and San Francisco. Chefs at top restaurants face competing pressures to deliver complex and creative dishes, and navigate market forces to run a profitable business in an industry with exceptionally high costs and low profit margins. Creating a distinctive and original culinary style allows them to stand out in the market, but making the familiar food that many customers want ensures that they can stay in business. Chefs must make choices between these competing pressures. In explaining how they do so, this book uses the case study of high cuisine to analyze, more generally, how people in creative occupations navigate a context that is rife with uncertainty, high pressures, and contradicting forces.
