It is important to note that recipes per se are not copyrightable (although their written expression is). The Food Geek has a good explanation of this legal principle.

The following sites license food-related items (mainly recipes) using FCW licenses:

  • Nibbledish (formerly Open Source Food) lists Creative Commons-licensed recipes.
  • Foodista is a general purpose cooking encyclopedia licensed CC-BY.
  • The Food Geek, a CC-BY-licensed food blog by Brian J. Geiger.
  • Bonan Apetiton, a CC-BY-SA-licensed recipes in the Esperanto language.
  • Cookbook on Wikibooks (also in other languages than English)
