What is the definition of a narrative recipe?
Asked in Food & Cooking
What are the four types of recipe and their meaning?
There are three types of recipe, not four. These types are known as Standard, Active, and Narrative format. Standard format has the ingredients named first, then the directions. Active format has instructions telling you to do things while other stages of the recipe are happening. Narrative format calls for an essay-like narration of the recipe, like a story without the lists and often with a background or story of the recipe, so you have to read as you go to complete the recipe.
