Are food recipes protected by copyrights?

In today's blog post, we're going to explore whether food recipes are protected by copyrights. After some research, I learned that recipes listed as a simple set of ingredients are not protected. However, if a recipe contains a substantial literary expression, it might be eligible for copyright protection. It's also important to note that unique variations, techniques, or instructions might be considered creative works and therefore protected. So, while basic recipes might not be copyrighted, it's always best to respect the creative work of others and give credit where it's due.
