Dear Chef William.
Did it ever occur to you that there was a reason that the former chef never wrote down his recipes, or communicate his secrets?
Your value as a chef is the knowledge in your head.  
Your best protection is to keep it there.  
Recipes can be patented, but the best form of protection for you is probably to keep your kitchen secrets secret.  
(It also costs nothing.)

Dear Chef,
    I understand your situation.  I run my father-in-laws pizza shop.  It's my recipe which he and his partner are using.  They plan to open several more since the first one is doing very well.  I sat down and discussed with them that in order for my recipes to be used at other locations.  They would have to compensate me with 10 percent of the profits.  From each location that is.  Never write your recipe's down anywhere and never tell anyone else.  If someone knows your secrets.  It isn't much of a secret anymore.  Therefore they wouldn't need you anymore.    
Best Wishes
