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.
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.
of green beans 4 cups vinegar (interesting as this is the same amount of vinegar used for double the amount of green beans in the other recipe) 2 cloves of garlic and 4 heads of dill? (For half the amount of beans this recipe should call for 8 heads of dill and at least 4 cloves of garlic.) Heres another question for you - exactly what are these Dilled Green Beans supposed to taste like? Where can you find a reliable recipe? Red Velvet Cake is another online recipe search disaster waiting to happen. There are over 750000 Google results for a search of "Red Velvet Cake Recipe". Now take a close look at these recipes. You will see Red Velvet Cake recipes that include in their ingredients 2 heaping teaspoons of cocoa to recipes that call for no cocoa at all.
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.
