Menu Recipe vs. Sub Recipe

In ChefHub, once you’ve got some Items into your database, you can start creating recipes.  On the left toolbar, under the Recipes header, you will find Items, then Sub Recipes & Menu Recipes.

So what’s the difference? In ChefHub, Menu Recipes and Sub Recipes are essentially the same. The key difference: Sub Recipes are generally used to build and create Menu Recipes, but never the other way around. For example, the recipe for “Chipotle Aioli” would be a Sub Recipe. It is a recipe made up of a handful of Items (or even other Sub Recipes), but is still just one ingredient that you would use in a Menu Recipe such as a “House Burger”, etc.
