I'm quite happy to share recipes, but usually after the event.

That's fair enough-- I have no problem with giving someone a look at the 
ingredients list on the day.  I just don't like the idea of having to 
post it well ahead of the event and with people generally using an 
ingredients list as a substitute for talking to the cook.

I like printed menus, too.
