When the moon hits your eye like a big…… knowledge managment in the Italian food business

So the next time you go to an Italian restaurant in Italy you might not be aware that the food being served could have been developed from a recipe from an entirely different restaurant’s knowledge base.  Andrew King of the Tuck school and his colleagues have been looking at the sharing practices of Italian chefs.  They have discovered that these chefs act strategically and creatively to protect their domain specific knowledge.

Now, as a Canadian with a sort of impish sense of humor I am wondering if I go to one of these restaurants and ask for valet parking along with my food would that be free or is that a more eh?
