Why We Don't Publish Recipes

Posted By on Tue, Dec 27, 2011 at 12:00 PM

I would love to share with the Weekly's audience my magnificent recipe for churros, but then a measurement goes awry and people are sent to the hospital with oil burns. You're on your own, Tucson cooks!

The publisher of La Tercera must pay individual damages to 11 women and two men ranging from as little as $279 to $48,000 for one woman whose burns were particularly severe....

Judges determined that the newspaper failed to fully test it before publication, and that if readers followed the recipe exactly, the churros had a good chance of exploding once the oil reached the suggested temperature. Grupo Copesa, which publishes the paper, said it will abide by the ruling.

Days after the recipe was published in the paper’s “Woman” magazine in 2004, hospitals around the country began treating women for burns suffered when the dough boiling in oil suddenly shot out of kitchen pots.
