In the never-ending saga of Massachusetts democrat Elizabeth Warren’s claims to Cherokee ancestry, new information shows she plagiarized recipes in the book “Pow Wow Chow.” Apparently, some of the works came from the New York Times, a French Chef and other publications.
Radio talk show host Howie Carr released evidence that apparently shows Warren isn’t above exaggerating her so-called heritage or stealing the intellectual property rights of others.
The 1984 cookbook, Pow Wow Chow, was edited by Warren’s cousin Candy Rowsey. It is touted as a collection of recipes from the Five Civilized Tribes.
Warren’s recipes numbered five, but it appears that at least three were pilfered from other publications.
“The two recipes for Crab with Tomato Mayonnaise Dressing and Cold Omelets with Crab Meat appear to be word for word copies of a French chef’s design.”
“When I was chef at Le Pavilion it enjoyed a considerable esteem in America, and the owner, Henri Soule, had one particular specialty that he would ask to have prepared for his pet customers. The dish was a great favorite of the Duke and Duchess of Windsor and Cole Porter,” wrote chef Pierre Franey in an article distributed by the New York Times News Service in August 1979.
Warren lists 10 ingredients for the cold omelet, but although Franey lists only four, the instructions are nearly identical, including the use of a “seven-inch Teflon pan.”
“Heat about one-half teaspoon butter in the pan. Add about one-third cup of the egg mixture. Let cook until firm and lightly brown on the bottom, stirring quickly with a fork until the omelet starts to set. When set slip a large pancake turner under the omelet starts to set. When set, slip a large pancake turner under the omelet and turn it quickly to the other side. Let cook about five seconds. Remember, you want to produce a flat omelet, not a typical folded omelet. Turn the omelets out flat onto a sheet of was [sic] paper. Continue making omelets until all the egg mixture is used,” Warren wrote.
The only difference is that Franey said the egg mixture should be ‘lightly browned,’ but apparently, Warren left that out.
A third recipe for Herbed Tomatoes seems to originate in a 1959 Better Homes and Gardens. Warren even appeared to copy instructions for how to use it.
“Great accompaniment to plain meat and potatoes meal!” both Warren and the original magazine said.
In 1996, the Harvard Crimson quoted a Law spokesperson saying “of 71 current Law School professors and assistant professors, 11 are women, five are black, one is Native American and one is Hispanic.”
But just last week, Breitbart.com reported Warren’s ancestor Jonathan Crawford was a member of the Tennessee Militia who helped corral and remove Cherokees as part of the Trail of Tears.
Other than an insane rant earlier this week on Twitter, the embittered democrat has been silent on the issue of the plagiarism, leading many to believe that she may finally feel some regret for the blatant cultural appropriation she’s shamelessly conducted.
Others think such self-realization is beyond the mental attainment of any democrat.
