US Blogger Accuses Alvin Quah From Masterchef Of Plagarism
A twitter war has broken out this evening with US food Blogger Rasa Malaysia accusing Masterchef Australia’s Season Two contestant Alvin Quah of plagarism.
The exchange went like this:
Rasa Malaysia’s recipe is here, and Alvin’s recipe is here on his blog at Cinnamon Pig. He also cooked the dish on a Masterchef Masterclass here. Since my knowledge on Malaysian cuisine is limited I don’t know if this is well known dish and it is possible they had the same recipe or if it is an unusual recipe.
Plagarism of content from the internet is rife in all areas, however the interesting issue raised here is whether someone has ‘rights’ over a recipe. What do you think?
