Purloined is a fictional restaurant based on my home cooking and whimsy. If I did have a restaurant, this would be the menu. Though I couldn’t stand cooking the same dishes night after night. All of these items, or at least the ideas for them, have been stolen from elsewhere. Cookbooks, newspapers, TV shows, restaurants. In this grazed world, everything is fair game as a source to be purloined.
