Nutty Mint Wraps
So the journey began in search of restaurant recipes. Most restaurants do not give out their recipes and why would they? They might lose a return customer if they did. I do see some restaurants that are selling some of their menu items in the grocery stores more than before but sort of limiting it to just a few items. I have also read about a person that would ask the cooks for their recipes and how some might spill the beans once in awhile but again fairly limited results. I remember one time my wife and I were at a Dennys restaurant late one night and how much we enjoyed their marinara sauce used with the mozzarella sticks we had ordered. We asked the waitress about it and she did check with the cooks on that but they really didnt know much about it and we thank her for trying.
There are a lot of online food sites that supply recipes but no indication that they have actually prepared the dish. A valuable online food site will have actually prepared the recipe and will offer helpful cooking tips directly related to the recipe. Restaurant imitation recipes is simply a phrase that describes recipes that imitate those of a certain restaurant or restaurants. The word imitation defines anything that may resemble or copy that of an original or genuine article. To copy or imitate an original source is a testament to the credibility of that source for the quality it provides. If it was not of high quality no one would even make the effort to imitate or copy it. It has also been said that the imitation of anything is a form of flattery but not every imitation is exactly flattering. Food is sort of boring in that the basic forms are the same.
They want to figure out the details of that signature flavor and replicate it in a fashion that truly does imitate the original flavor. Focus dedication and the will to succeed is a must for many of these individuals. There are also those who are simply great cooks and through their experience and intuitive nature are able to hone in on the original restaurant recipe. I have some experience cooking and can follow a recipe but I certainly am not a restaurant recipe hacker. If it is a difficult task to try to copy or imitate a successful genuine article then why do others try to imitate it? Great question. It often times can be related to money and someone else wanting to get in on the action. There also those that will do it to see if they can save some money.
