A judge in New York has dismissed an appeal from a chef who accused Jerry Seinfeld's wife of stealing a cookbook concept - insisting the author didn't require "much cooking expertise" to put together the recipes.
Chef Missy Chase Lapine sued the funnyman's wife Jessica in 2008, claiming Seinfeld's bestselling cookbook Deceptively Delicious had been "brazenly plagiarised" from her own tome, The Sneaky Chef.
Both books allegedly contained ideas for pureeing vegetables and hiding them in children's food.
A judge threw out the plagiarism suit in September last year (09), but Lapine lodged an appeal - and when the case went back to court on Monday (26Apr10), Judge Reena Raggi dismissed the suit and criticised Lapine's claim, according to the New York Daily News.
She told the court, "You make purees and put them in these recipes? That's it? I don't think one needs much cooking expertise to know this."
