Are you looking for Copykat Recipes?
Just why are you looking for Copykat Recipes? I bet I know....
Have you frequented a restaurant and gone away asking: "just how do they make those
dishes?" I bet you sat there trying to discover just what has gone into the dish, what sort of ingredients
they're using.. Maybe you have even tried to ask the waiter or the chef for the recipe it
was so good! Chances are they didn't give you the recipe, and probably for good reason, if
they did give it out to every person who asked for it, they could soon be out of business.
So you love a certain meal so much, you try to make it at home. Maybe you had some success, chances are that you weren't even close to getting the recipe right. The solution to this dilemma is to use what are called copycat
restaurant recipes. They are specially researched and reverse engineered dishes like
Copykat Recipes that have been tried and tested many times and hence can be successfully used to
recreate your favorite restaurant dishes.
Another great thing about cooking restaurant copycat recipes at home, is that you will save big money.
With a good cookbook full of copy cat recipes you can eat restaurant food at home and it is both faster and less expensive. With practice you will find you can prepare several copy cat recipes at once with ease. I frequently make an entire meal for my wife and I including appetizers, main course and a desert in under 1 hour. Restaurant copy cat recipes have saved me time and expense by giving me a way to enjoy all my favorites easily at home.
