Don't take it personally...a lot of chefs/bakers/restauranteurs will not give out their recipes because it is proprietary info to them (IOW, 'business secrets') that they don't want to give away. It's important to a lot of them.

In general I did/do not give out my baking recipes as I did a lot of wedding cakes and pastries in my business at one point...lots of things that I developed myself that took a lot of work, that I am not going to just hand out freely.
