We are starting a new menu, what is the easiest way to show the kitchen crew how each dish should be presented so everyone is making them the same way. I have recipes, but is there a easier system, illustrations of each dish on the wall?

I've attached a picture to the recipe, and also have created a seperate picture book.
You only need to do it one time.
Plate each dish as you wish, snap a few digital photos of each (so you can pick the best one).
For dishes that have similar plating, like if the New York and Chicken Piccata share the same sides, you can shoot one, then replace the protein with the other and shoot again, minimizing the waste on the othe plate items.
I using the same method .... Every year I change the menu and the recipe book .. I keep the recipe book in the kitchen and also foot album of all the menu .. Every plate how to look ..that is the easiest way ...the day when I start with the menu I explain the new items to the wait staff ..what is what how much oz is going ect ect...
