Start a Restaurant

Eggplant ParmesanThe thing that baffles me more than anything else, is why restaurant’s give away their recipe’s. What is even stranger, is that other restaurant’s don’t copy them?

Everyday on the Food Network, the best restaurant’s give their recipe’s away. I made custom recipe’s based off of the best of the best. I specifically aimed at creating a menu based off of the must have’s for a successful small restaurant.

If someone just copied these, I can’t imagine that their restaurant wouldn’t be a success. If you have any question’s or comment’s leave them below. Enjoy!
