(Suggest merging this concept with concept "Process execution" to create concept "Process")
Recipe is a definition of a process, where process is an entity that occurs over a period of time. Recipe link is a handle to reference the recipe or process definition.
References to process entities in the ProvenanceExample can be found in the following sentence:
"Having retrieved the provenance, he is able to trace back the error not to the newspapers processing but an error in how the government translated the data into RDF."
- "newspapers processing" - the process (id: http://www.w3.org/provWG/p1) used by newspaper to use information from different sources and publish a newspaper article
- "government translated" - the process (id: http://www.w3.org/provWG/p2) followed by government to translate data into RDF
