Recipe Request Refusal: Rude or Respected?

by Daniel Post Senning on May 3, 2013

Q: Is it considered to be rude if someone refuses to share a recipe?

A: Some families guard their recipes like the crown jewels. It is perfectly reasonable to ask someone for a recipe, but it is also their choice whether or not to give it.

I agree with EPI on this one. I would also add that the requester should ask politely and, if the “owner” declines to share the recipe, should not get huffy.
