    Apperley and Spence's Lean Cuisine is presented as a notation for early menu design, based on idealised definition of a meneme. This presentation is misleading. Rather, Lean Cuisine addresses one part of the design on the intended conceptual model for a system. Lean Cuisine is unnecessarily constrained by the arbitrary narrowing of what a meneme can be. The meneme and menu rationale behind Lean Cuisine is examined, and rejected in favour of an empirical requirementsbased approach. An architectural context is used to re-present the Lean Cuisine technique as an application modelling abstraction.
