I've posted before about America's Test Kitchen/Cook's Country/Cook's Illustrated. I use some of their recipes, have a few of their magazines/cookbooks, posted a spoof of recipes (How to boil water)....but then I read this: illegal or not? about one bloggers run in with the PR department of the ATK/CC/CI franchise. Really makes one wonder about them. I do understand about wanting to protect their "intellectual" property but there is a set of rules already in place, and it sounds as if this blogger was already following them.
Thanks to Barbara of Tigers & Strawberries who wrote an even better post about the whole thing herself.
