Menu Maker

Click the "Menu" button on the black Navigation Bar to make a new menu for a dinner or wine tasting, or to Browse Existing Menus.

The Menu Maker is a four part process.

Part 1: Name the Menu
To begin, in the Menu tab fields, enter a name for your menu (e.g., David's 40th Birthday Dinner"), the date of the event, who the guests will be, and any notes (e.g., "David is allergic to nuts").

View any wines you may have selected from the Pair Food page in the Wine Clipboard tab on the right of your screen. You can add wines in the next step. Click "Next" at the bottom right of the screen when you are ready to continue.

Part 2: Choose the Wines
In the Cellar tab you will see the list of wines from your Cellar List. If you have selected any wines earlier from the Pair Food page, those wines will have an "x" in the checkbox to the left. You can select more wines here to inlcude on your menu, or you can de-select wines to exclude them from your menu.

Each wine you select will appear in the Wine Clipboard tab on the right of your screen. Click "Next" at the bottom right of the screen when you are ready to continue.

Part 3: Create the Courses
Select the "New" button at the bottom of the Course tab to create a new course. In the Detail tab fields, enter a course name (e.g., "Appetizer"), the food for that course (e.g., "Insalata Caprese", and a description of the course (e.g., "Heirloom Tomatoes, Mozarella, and Basil"). To enter a wine or wines for the new course, make a selection from the Wine Clipboard tab on the right of your screen by clicking an arrow button next to the wine(s).

Type any notes about the wine directly into the Notes field. To view your notes from the entry form, click on the small text icon to the right of the Notes field. A window will open showing all the available notes from the Notes Tab. You may copy any notes you wish to include on your menu, then click "Done" at the top of the screen and paste the notes into the Course Wines Notes field.

Select as many wines as you want for each course. When you are finished with the course, click back over to the Course tab and click "New" again to add another course or click "Next" at the bottom right of the screen when you are ready to view and print your menu.

Part 4: Preview and Print Menu
PWC will allow you to print your menu one to a page or two to a page on 8 1/2" X 11" paper. Click to preview or print. When you are finished click "Done" at the bottom right of the screen and select either Home or Cellar to continue using PWC.

Note: At any time during the four part process of building a new menu, you can use the "Back" button at the bottom right of the screen to go back to the previous part.


New Menu button: You can create a new menu directly from the Menu Maker using the "New" button at the bottom of the screen.

Delete Menu button: You can delete a menu directly from the Menu Maker using the "Delete" button at the bottom of the screen.


Browse Menus:

When you click the "Menu" button on the Navigation Bar, you have the option of browsing existing menus. When you choose this option, you will be taken to a list of menus previously created. You can edit existing menus, or preview the print layout. You may also delete menus you no longer wish to have in the list.

Note: Anytime you begin a new menu it will appear in the Menu list, even if you didn't type any information into the new menu.
