On the one hand I can understand it- it's "IP," or Intellectual Property. Recipes, unlike songs or works of fiction, cannot be copyrighted. So anyone is free to duplicate them. A restaurant known for a particular item will often guard the recipe jealously to avoid another person from copying it & taking customers from them.

Me, on the other hand...I'm mostly willing to share my recipes. I think a good restaurant is about more than recipes. I could give you a recipe yet we'd each make it differently. I'm not very worried that someone will execute it better than I do, or take customers from me.

If we're not supposed to eat animals, then how come they're made out of meat?
