Guys how would you answer a question about HOW TO CONTROL KITCHEN COST? No idea why but i had an opportunity to answer this question but after the meeting they replied to my agent saying: i'm very good creative bla bla but not structured enough with cost control which i know i am... What will your answer be if they ask you how to control cost in a kitchen?

Well if you know you are, then you must know at least four or five of the answers that posters here provided you with, right?

Couple of places I worked at, had clear garbage bags......
