If It's On The Internet, It Has To Be True, Right?
I have a DVR load of cooking shows recorded from various PBS shows. Jacques Pepin is my favorite. I had some free time Sunday as SO was out for the afternoon and I didn't feel like watching football so I decided to watch a few of the shows so I could delete them and maybe get a recipe or two.
I watched a JP episode of "More Fast Food My Way" where he made chicken supremes with tapenade and mushroom sauce. Sounded good so I went online to find and copy the recipe. I found it easily. Google had several links. Copy, paste and read it over. Hmmm, sounds different. Check another link - different recipe. Check a third link - different recipe. All three with the exact same recipe name and with attribution to JP. The TV recipe used three different kinds of olives. One recipe called for one type. Another recipe called for tablespoons of mushrooms instead of cups. Another left out butter to sauté the mushrooms. I want the recipe JP made for me on TV.
By comparing and remembering, I was able to get it right.
Just goes to show you, there's a lot of crap out there that people want you to believe is the gospel. User beware.
