Cloned restaurant recipes

I saw this site advertised on The Daily Buzz this morning. Some of the recipes are free, while others you will have to purchase.

Warning: Do not copy any recipes from this site and post them to another though, he'll sue the living pants off both the poster and the message board.

Their lawyers went through last year and sent form letters to any message board where they found any TSR recipes posted or any posts containing the URL to the old recipe archives (which are now no-longer free) saying take it down or face a lawsuit.

I checked this book out a long time ago from my local library - I think there is a second edition even. Very interesting reading as it gave some history behind the foods too.

Raven, thats a rule on discuss cooking, not to post the actual recipes from another site because that is copyright infringement, unless you get permission from the author, but it's fine to post a link to the site.

Okay, I just thought I'd mention it just in case. It caused quite a stir on few other boards last year. :)

the true recipes are precious comadity and restaurants would never give them up. just because somebodie thinks that thouse recipes are the same i wouldn't go alone with that. Otherwise nobody would go to restaurants, everybody would cook at home.

Charlie,
I own the book and the recipes are amazing! I'm sure that it isn't EXACT but I know that he spent many years and came close to perfect on the ones that I have tried.

Jen, but that is my point, if it isn't exact, why bother. There are plenty of great recipes out there. There was a show on TV few days ago about KFC. The original chicken recipe is locked in the place that only couple of people in the company know about, and the ingredients are made in different places so nobody could figure out the final mix. So, I don't care how close these recipes are they are not the original ones.
