A recipe is a set of instructions that show how to prepare or make something, especially a culinary dish.

Modern culinary recipes normally consist of several components:

  • The name (and often the locale or provenance) of the dish,
  • How much time it will take to prepare the dish
  • The required ingredients along with their quantity
  • Equipment and environment needed to prepare the dish
  • An ordered list of detailed preparation procedures (called Method).
  • The number of servings that the dish will give.
  • A rough estimate of the number of calories or joules contained per serving.
  • A note on how long the dish will keep and its suitability for freezing.

    In the early history of recipes, many of these components were omitted or reduced to a note that required oral instruction, some of which may only have the name and the ingredients of a dish.
