You can't copyright a recipe

(Link)
Certainly in the UK & the US that's the case (http://www.copyright.gov/fls/fl122.html) assuming it's just a list of ingredients. If they changed the wording of the method then they're probably legally ok (morally dubious perhaps!).

If they've lifted introductory text, descriptions and image verbatim though , that's not ok. You might want to make it clearer what you're objecting to them lifting.

I'm not sticking up for them, it's just potentially not as clear cut as some have made it out to be and I hope it's all sorted out in your favour.

Different Anon.

No, they lifted the WHOLE ARTICLE, not just the recipes.

Ah, that's naughty then. That and their attitude makes this bad.
