How many "TRUE" orginal recipes are there?? I have worked for places throughout the years and if I really liked a recipe, I put in on my menu. Because I WANTED to, I credited the place or the chef....but I never felt like i HAVE to.
I put eggplant french fries on the menu. They are unreal. I learned from a place in Hartford...Carbones. I gave carbones credit on my menu. But, in reality, it was started down in new haven at Leons. Now, I really, really believe if I could look further down in history, THEY probably got it from some other place the owner or chef worked at in the past...
There are about a dozen places in connecticut that now make eggplant fries with this recipe. And no one credited me, carbones or leons. And I kind of like it that way. The reason being that I don't know how well they could pull off the dish. Say they cut corners or fry em too long or short....they will be terrible YET everyone who reads the description on the dish will think that MY egg fries will suck too...... I hope i wrote that correctly....do you understand??
Me, Im not a fan of "secret recipes". Believe me, even if you think you created something.....there is a very, very good chance someone, somewhere has done it before you.
But, yeah, Craig........that dude is obviosly a PG fan. And personally, PG should simply take it as a compliment. And if I were him, i would DEFINATELY NOT want my name mentioned....his rep has nowhere to go but DOWN.
