I remembered last January it's my birthday I invited two friends of mine to eat in a very known restaurant here in my town. But before that this friend of mine that came from the US saw the picture that I posted on my FB account the recipe I cooked for our lunch and she told me that she wants to taste it, and we she came here I told her that I will cook for her. Then my birthday came and I saw that the food that I cooked before, the one she saw in the picture also on their menu so I introduced it to her if she wants to have an idea what's the taste of it. So I order one for her but when the food came I was surprised that it is different from what I cooked the name are the same also with the ingredients but the way it's cooked and the taste it was all different. I feel sad I just told her it was better that I cooked it for her instead of ordering it. Did it happen to you that you expect it is also the same recipe?

No, I have not experienced it yet. I feel sorry for what had happened thinking that you would impressed your friends, bringing them to a famous eatery and so as not to bother you with the hassles of cooking, you got disappointed. I just hope your friends understand it.

oh i know just what you mean. even different resturants have different ways of making some things. and even we change something at times that we are not sure how it happened. i used to make wonderful bisquits southern style just the same like my grandmas and no one could tell the difference from our bisquits. but after a few years i stopped and now no matter how much i do them exactly the same, they are not the same and everyone agrees. so to bad you didnt get a chance to make this dish for your friend. maybe at a later date.

I always think that my mom's version of cooking a certain dish is better than the ones that can be bought in restaurants or fastfoods. I don't know but there is just something about home cooking and cooking for the massive quantities that strikes my palate differently.

Never it is and the way in which the town prepares the recipe is elegant and quite different,you need to check out personally all the way

The food is not elegant at all that's why I feel ashamed that I'm wrong that I introduced it to my friend.

I make several appetizers with zuchinni and eggplant and my friends love it. Once I was invited by my mom to a very elegant restaurant and they had a very expensive appetizer called "eggplant caviar". I said I`d try it so I could get ideas. THe very expensive apetizer was the same one I made. Yummy and very cheap, by the way.

I wouldn't suggest that a friend of mine try something at a restaurant that I also cook at home. The reason that I wouldn't do this is because of the fact that there is nothing that I've found that is done the same at restaurants as I would make it at home. Even when the ingredients are the same, I don't think the food is the same. The main reason that I think that there is such a difference is because of love. When I cook in my kitchen, I cook with love, but I don't think things in a commercial kitchen are cooked with love.
