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.
Sugar might be added to a chili or soup recipe to sweeten it more. If youre very vigilant when you look through recipes then you will be ok. However if youre not careful then some recipes may contain ingredients that you dont want to include. Thats why specialty low carb websites and blogs are better sources for low carb recipes. How do you find these blogs? Well its not as easy to find them at first because just googling for "low carb blogs" can generate a lot of lists of blogs that are outdated and no longer running. It can also generate many pages of results that you dont find all that interesting and dont really want to spend time trawling through. So the best way is really to start with one blog that you enjoy and to keep reading it. Over time if its a good blog theyre usually mention other bloggers who do similar things. Other bloggers might also post comments on the blog youre reading offering cooking tips or recipe suggestions. These would be good people to check out. You can even start a conversation with them as most bloggers are very friendly and love to talk about their area of interest.
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.
This may be a silly reflection but highlights the points mentioned above. When I was growing up I could not stand the taste of cauliflower. I saw no purpose for this food. To me it was a useless vegetable that took up space on our planet. I am not joking! Later when I actually worked in a supper club one of the appetizers we served was deep fried cauliflower with a side of cheese sauce. Ever since then cauliflower has become one of my favorite foods and in all of the traditional ways from raw to steamed and I still love the deep fried method as well. If it were not for that deep fried recipe I may never have had the pleasure of enjoying this healthy and now tasty food. I think it is important to recognize Restaurants themselves whether they be a fast food independent mom and pop big chain type or even 5 star all bring in millions of people every day across our nation.
