Recipes as Sacred Texts?

There's an interesting brouhaha going on over at Alosha's Kitchen having to do with how Cooks Country  responded to Alosha's posting of a recipe she found at Cooks Country and credited, but then altered.  I certainly understand CC's attitude towards having permission to post, but can only wonder about its attitude about others altering its recipes.  Are recipes revelations of gustatory  truth that must be adhered to as divine doctrine lest one incur unexpected visitations from the Culinary Inquisition?  St. Julia protect us. 

(There's more here on Kalofagas's blog.)

On the other hand, there's the whole issue of posting someone else's e-mails to the internet without permission.  That's a legal and ethical  quagmire, to say the very least.

Thank you for bringing the email issue to my attention. I'm not concerned about it at the moment, but I will look into it further.

It's kind of you to link and to offer that piece of advice.

Warmest regards~

No problem. I'd just hate to see you get into trouble with those people.
