Can a chef truly ‘own’ a recipe?

Has Gordon Ramsay really plagiarised Australian Mitch Orr’s signature macaroni, pig’s head and egg yolk. Or is this chef clout chasing?

For my money, recipe borrowing is fair and has always happened. Should you give credit when you’ve been inspired? Absolutely. But if Mitch Orr is expecting anything more from GR he’s either crazy or clout chasing. This isn’t The Big Mac or Coca Cola. He should take the compliment and go for a surf. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

What do you think?

I’d like to thank Gordon Ramsay and Mitch Orr for their IG pictures and Pip Sloan at the Telegraph for letting me borrow her article which you can read in full at the below link. 🙂
