Since I asked the question I'll chime in. I asked the question with the intent of it being in a very grey area and seeing where it would fall. However, I think it does in fact fit Jeff's grey area metric. Specifically, I included in the original question text
if there's anything odd or different
you do while making it, maybe include
that in your response.
That's the learning point. Is a cook/chef going to find a recipe there he's never heard of? Not very likely. But is he going to get an idea of a different way to prepare an old dish? Seems at least plausible to me.
Beyond that, I also see a potential learning point in reading a response and going, "hey, that sounds really good, I haven't made that dish in forever," and then trying it. I'd call it the Food Network effect. An experienced cook/chef doesn't watch a cooking show and find recipes he's never heard of, but he does find recipe's he hasn't made ina while or has never made in exactly that way.
Anyway, if the community chooses to close it that's fine, just giving you my rationale for why I think it's a valid question.
