... and here's even more from Ananova: Berlin chef Gero Winiarski has developed a German version of the Atkins diet - based on pork knuckles, sauerkraut and beer. At the heart of the plan is the Schweinshaxe, a massive knuckle of pork that comes from traditional Bavarian style of cooking. It is usually served with dumplings and sauerkraut or, in some regions, red cabbage. While Haxe is traditionally associated with big-bellied Bavarian men, Winiarski says the dish can actually help people shed pounds.Guests at his restaurant are told to ditch the dumplings so they can have the meal with a clear conscience. Winiarski also claims to have developed a special way of roasting the knuckle that takes almost all of the fat out of it.

The IPKat notes that there's no intellectual property right in a bare idea. Though specific recipes will enjoy copyright protection, the three-dimension food that results from using the recipe isn't an infringement under copyright law (in the UK at any rate: is it different elsewhere?). If Winiarski wants his special way of roasting the knuckle to remain a secret, he is best advised to keep strangers out of kitchen.

Comments will not be allowed if the contravene the IPKat policy that readers' comments should not be obscene or defamatory; they should not consist of ad hominem attacks on members of the blog team or other comment-posters and they should make a constructive contribution to the discussion of the post on which they purport to comment.

It is also the IPKat policy that comments should not be made completely anonymously, and users should use a consistent name or pseudonym (which should not itself be defamatory or obscene, or that of another real person), either in the "identity" field, or at the beginning of the comment. Current practice is to, however, allow a limited number of comments that contravene this policy, provided that the comment has a high degree of relevance and the comment chain does not become too difficult to follow.
