@TruthBunny Yes! And just as useful are red flags that indicate poorly written recipes. Any recipe that gives a time for a given task but no doneness indicator is crap in my book…because doneness indicators are way more trustworthy than times in most cases.
@TruthBunny But that’s just at more professional operations...
@TruthBunny In my experience, there are some rules that govern all well-written recipes, and then some rules that are just house-style. A lot of it is learned on the job, assuming you have good recipe writers/editors to learn from, and some of it is documented on internal style guides.
@TruthBunny that's a great idea… "how to read a (well written) recipe"
@TruthBunny I frequently see things like “1 tablespoon parsley, chopped”. what they mean is 1 tablespoon chopped parsley, but what they’re technically saying is: take as many entire sprigs of parsley as you can crush down into a tablespoon measure, then chop that.
