They certainly dont have to be expensive either. Most cost about the same as a nice dinner for two and can include extra information from making wine to growing your own herbs if you are in to that. It is really pretty incredible what some have included along with the recipe books they are promoting. As with anything do take some time to review before making any purchase of course but once you do get your feet wet have some fun and be prepared to be amazed with the results. You sit down to plan the menu for the week and get ready for another trip to the grocery store. There was that recipe you made a couple weeks ago that everyone loved where is it? You dig through handwritten papers torn out magazine pages and tattered index cards.
It is also goes to show why restaurants are certainly a credible authority and why someone may go out of their way to imitate or copy a recipe or two. If you were to choose any one of your favorite restaurants or even one that may just be starting up this same basic description will apply. This restaurant will make a discovery of a new method or combination of sauces or seasonings for a new food recipe. I should say they work at making the discovery putting in time and effort initially so this new recipe could be tried and tested over and over until finally reaching the menu. The restaurant may advertise the new release to let the public know it has a great new recipe to come in and try out. Ideally it becomes a success and a featured item on their menu.
I used to do online searches looking for recipes and often I was left totally confused with what I found. There are all sorts of sites that are dedicated to recipes. Some of the larger sites have the ability for members to leave ratings and comments. These types of sites have become very popular over the past few years. There are even forums dedicated to food talk that include links to recipes and member comments. Heres where the problems arise. Do a simple online search for "Dilled Green Beans". You will see over 270000 results. These recipes are on all types of cooking sites from large established recipe sites to individual blogs. How to choose? How do you want to invest your time energy and money? Will you choose the recipe that calls for 4 lbs. of green beans 16 heads fresh dill 4 cups vinegar 9 cloves of garlic or the one that calls for 2 lbs.
I dont know about you but I get a great sense of accomplishment when taking time to learn something and it works out. Should you get the urge to try these imitation or secret recipes of the restaurants I think you will be more than pleasantly surprised. I know I have been. If you want to save some money learn how to cook or simply to get a hold of one of your favorite restaurant recipes you wont regret it. I have not tried any of the "700 FREE restaurant recipes" type of sources online. They may be alright too however it has been my experience that if something is really worth while there should be some cost associated for the effort of making it available.
