Can you use recipes from famous chefs and use them exactly the same way in your restaurant?

For example i might want to put a Jammie Oliver recipe on the menu in my restaurant. Is it ok?

Are their any legal problems with this?

You can use the recipe, just not his name to sell the dish. Many restaurants who need to fill in menus use recipes from books. I'm sure many recipes from The New Professional Chef wind up on menus - but you never see them billed as such.
