Restaurants / stores with good recipes on their sites?

I'm sometimes finding fun recipes on the sites of favorite stores or loved restaurants. Do you have sites you like?

I enjoy these...

    1. I had not looked at restaurants/stores as a source for recipes - now I will, thanks to you. Thanks also for the links. Have you tried any recipes that you really liked that you would be willing to share?

        The baked polenta with wild mushroom Ragu on the Formaggio site is ugly but good. I also like the Cracked Green Olive & Walnut Salad from that site - it's really a relish.

        I like that Zarela's posts so many basic sauces - I haven't made them yet, but I've enjoyed tooling around & bookmarking things.

        I've had some excellent meals at Simon Pearce, and they always come with a nice bread basket - I notice both breads are on the site: Ballymaloe Brown Bread & Rory's Scones. Now whether they will be as pleasant when they aren't delivered to my table with a sweet little crock of butter I can't say...

    2. Wow, thos sites are great! Wish I had some to add, maybe I just don't get out enough ;-{

        Or I don't get out enough - and spend too much time trolling the sites of restaurants I'm not at, hoping for clues on ways to recreate their food...

          1. Whole Foods Market - http://www.wholefoodsmarket.com/recipes/

            I like how you can select by category - ex: apps or main ingredient or dietary need or........

              I've made several recipes from the Whole Foods site. I like that you don't need to buy all the ingredients at WFM
