Calypso Couscous Pudding
From car repairs to home carpentry it also has opened my eyes to appreciate what others are doing as a business for their livelihoods. It has helped make a difference in wiser spending as well as saving money even if I do not do something myself. Knowing that my family has developed this habit of eating out more than eating at home getting them to eat typical home cooked meals more often is not going to be to easy. The flickering light bulb moment or idea mentioned earlier was to see about getting some recipes from the restaurants that I could cook at home with the idea of saving some money initially. I also began to see how we have lost touch with the skill of cooking. We sure have all become masters of the microwave but the rest of the kitchen starts to get a little sketchy.
If the public loves it the restaurant has another source of new revenue. In the case of a new startup it could also be a featured recipe that helps them to get noticed to help get them off the ground and running overall. Believe it or not restaurants themselves can be considered one of the biggest copy cat artists out there but in a way that doesnt try to make an exact copy They will proceed in a way that may use the same name of the dish but pride themselves to make theirs stand out differently by adding their own signature touch and right down to what else may be included in addition to the entree to help set it apart from others.
Restaurants may need to have some legal assistance and agreements arranged with their employees to not give up any secrets to their signature ways in effort to keep their secrets in-house should an employee decide to leave. There have been some court cases where a cook or chef leaves and starts a new restaurant using the same signature methods but calling it something else and well... more money spent to get it straightened out. Over time there have been many others that have tried to imitate a restaurant recipe from grocery store food suppliers right down to good ole Mom. Ask them all and most would agree that the task may not be so easy to recreate. There are those that come up with recipes that are similar in general yet lack that signature flavor of a specific restaurant.
