Long-time blog readers may recall this photo shoot which appeared in the March 2013 issue of Elle Decoration (Philippine Edition) — it was shot on the beach and I prepared several dishes with a mediterranean-y vibe. It seems the spread, or several recipes from the spread, were later picked up by, and appeared on the pages of Elle Decoration in Greece, and I actually found some of them on-line, here. Isn’t that cool? How odd to shoot salt encrusted lapu-lapu in Batangas paired with a red rice salad with roasted vegetables and feta cheese only to have them come out in a glossy magazine and/or website in Greek?! Hmmm, but on second thought, one of the other recipes included grilled baby squid or octopus on arugula, which also seems Greek appropriate. At any rate, a little “kilig” to say the least.

    I recall a fellow fan of this blog who hails from Greece, Shalimar, but I guess she’s out at sea somewhere. She could have deciphered the attribution for all of us. In any case, it’s gifts coming from their direction we have to be wary of.

    MM: Something’s terribly wrong. No proper attribution?

    My MacBook translates from Greek. Photos and styling were credited to: Photographer :David Hanson, styling: Paulynn Chang Afable, Sharlene Tan but nothing said about you?

    Footloose: “it’s gifts coming from their direction we have to be wary of.”. A Trojan ( horse?) Di ko ma-gets ( in common Filipino parlance)

    I was obliquely suggesting to MM that with or without attribution, consider the appropriation of his article and pics a present to the financially beleaguered Greeks. The allusion, you are right on, is to the gift horse for the Trojans, by way of Virgil, “I fear the Greeks even when bearing gifts.” I remember the hokey pastiche of a movie Helen of Troy where they appropriated without attribution Christopher Marlowe’s “the face that launched a thousand ships and burn the topless towers of Ilium.”

    Connie et al, I haven’t seen the print version, so I don’t know what attribution was given. The photographer and stylists were right, the ones who did the Manila shoot. I don’t have a translation of the recipes, don’t know for sure if they haven’t been altered from the original. Not sure what rules apply after original article which gave proper attribution is taken up by an affiliate magazine… at any rate, we know whose fishpan it is. Footloose, I have to just smile when you make comments like that, I feel like I have to go look up notes from university or high school classes covering the classics…

    Editor is trying to get me a copy of the article next week… then we will see it in its entirety. :)

  20. Connie C says:

    MM: In your Mac, there is a window up top that asks you if you want to translate just above the main frame. I was able to browse thru the magazine and understood what it said tho with a not so perfect translation, even saw pictures of the new power/glamour couple George Clooney and Amal Alamoudin.

    Re attribution, magazines often would claim all rights to your pictures or article giving them free license to use it as deemed. I don’t know if there is a clause or agreement like that , but still, any self respecting magazine with integrity as Elle Greece? owes you credit for publishing your recipes as much as they credited the photographer and sylist for the article.

    A big fishpan award for Elle Greece’s negligence?

  21. Marketman says:

    Connie, hmm, maybe a mini-fishpan brewing. But original attribution was there and they did advice me of the article (albeit after the fact). So I am not sweating it for now. :)

    Hi MM. I have a copy of the.magazine when it came out. I hope you were cites for the photo.
