Patenting Recipe: New Idea

It's well known that cooking a recipe can not be patented at USPTO. But can the recipe be patented by any private organization? Is that even possible?

    Food is Patentable as a Composition. Under U.S. Patent law, an inventor can patent a process, machine, manufacture, or composition of matter. The food must be new, useful, not obvious, and meet the other disclosure requirements for patentability. However, the critical point remains the same: Food can be patented.
