Are food recipes protected by copyrights?

As a passionate foodie, I recently came across an interesting question: Are food recipes protected by copyrights? After some research, I discovered that while the list of ingredients cannot be copyrighted, the written description, explanation, or instructions can be protected. Essentially, the creative expression of the recipe may be copyrighted, but the basic facts and ideas behind it are not. This means that while it's not okay to copy someone's written recipe verbatim, you can recreate the dish and share it using your own words and instructions. So, feel free to get inspired by recipes, but always add your own personal touch and creativity when sharing them with others.
