ProKitchen Software Stand-Alone​​
Version Download Instructions ​​

The ProKitchen Stand-Alone version is available for those attending a live training workshop, since we never know how the internet will be at the host hotel. We recommend only using the stand-alone version during the workshop, since it has to be manually updated where the online version is automatically updated.

Note: Installing the Stand-Alone version will give you access to the program for 14 days, so please download it 10 days or less before the staring date of the workshop.

To install the ProKitchen Stand Alone Version make sure the ProKitchen On-Line version is not running. Also stop any Antivirus and Firewall until the program is downloaded and installed.
