Have you ever tried to make something just like your favorite restaurant and while it turned out ok it just didnt quite taste the same as what TGIF or Olive Garden serves? I know I have and it seemed like all the effort was fine but the result on a scale of 1 to 10 was maybe a 6 at best. To get a 9 or 10 just seems impossible and you are better off giving up and just go to the restaurant instead. Well guess what? As there is with anything worth while there are those few people who do try to imitate these restaurant recipes to the Nth degree. You could almost refer to them as recipe hackers. They can be moms dads or professionals and no matter who these people have a goal and will put in the time and effort to break a recipe down.
They continue push each other in developing recipes techniques and signature menus that keep us coming back for more. We all have our favorite menu items and while one person may prefer one restaurant over another for a particular entree or appetizer the fact is they all are a genuine article and clearly worth the effort to imitate. Just a note in regard to businesses (especially non-restaurant) some have to take steps and go further and get patents or licenses on their discoveries to help protect them from being copied. With restaurants it is a little tougher as getting patents and licensing on food is much more difficult and not quite the same as building up a new technological advance like an I-pad.
