All About Recipes

According to Wikipedia, a recipe is a set of instructions that describes how to prepare food or other culinary dishes for the purpose of eating a healthy meal.

The term recipe is also used within the medicine and information technology  disciplines, but with specific meaning, which sometimes have nothing to do with food or beverages.

Where did the word recipe come from?

Recipe is derived from the verb recipere, which means “to take” or “to receive.” The verb receive itself comes from Latin recipere which was once taken to mean receipt. Both words were also commonly used to mean “recipe.”
