i cook for seminars and retreats booked at an intentional self-sustained community based out of an old plantation in west virginia. i also do farm labor and sell goat cheese at market for a goat farm in maryland.
i wrote a few recipes for my boss at the goat farm recipes using different cheeses that we make, and she wants to publish them to hand out at the markets and submit them to a "buy local challenge" cook-off. she wants to know how i expect to be compensated, and i can't find any guidelines to follow in regard to how i should be paid?
i've been cooking professionally for over six years now and have been approached only recently about purchasing recipes. as an art student we were taught to plug our figures into certain formulas in order to price artwork, and i was thinking maybe there might be something similar for culinary creations?
thanks in advance to anyone who has advice in this area...
