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?

one dish leads to another...

verbatum... no.

replicating, certainly may be construed as a compliment.

stop.stop.stop. read into a recipe, what are they doing?
How is something being cut?
How is something being cooked?
How is something being seasoned?
How is something related to other similar food? (ie: food classification or cooking method)
How is somehting defined as a compliment?
How is something plated visually?
How does it taste?
How does it complement the coarse? the menu? the theme or style? the image? the cooks? the chef? the customer?
