Object Oriented Recipe Development

An interesting piece out of GigaOM interviews media chef Alton Brown about using social media constructs to file and adapt food recipes.  The link points to a video that broadly outlines the idea.    I am an amateur chef, and have a long time interest in the history of cooking and how recipes have been used to record the knowledge of cooking.    Also, related and just reading,  see Bee Wilson's recent book: Consider the Fork: A History of How We Cook and Eat.  Which addresses the history of cooking and its technology.

Brown's idea is interesting.  But when I perform any kind of task, like cooking.  I want the fundamental 'objects' to be done correctly, expertly, professionally.  Then I would like to be able to connect together these pieces together to form a recipe that I am constructing or adapting.  Some of the methods used in Object Oriented Programming for software development should be examined as starting points.   Be glad to review any thoughts on this.
