Has Bing quietly started supporting JSON-LD for recipe rich snippets?

A user recently asked on my blog (http://bit.ly/2tmZunp) why the site food.com, which provides http://schema.org/Recipe information in JSON-LD, was receiving recipe rich snippets in Bing search results while his site, inspiredtaste.com, was not being awarded with rich snippets for its JSON-LD-encoded recipe markup.

Well, it turns out that in the two weeks it took me to reply to the question the site inspiredtaste.net, along with a host of other sites that provide http://schema.org/Recipe markup only in JSON-LD, has been awarded with recipe rich snippets.

Some time ago I noticed a single JSON-LD-only site receiving recipe rich snippets in Bing, but was able to account for this by ascribing the display to Bing's cache of an earlier, microdata version of recipes for the site.

But, as per the survey below, it really does appear Bing has started to use the JSON-LD provided for recipes.

I haven't looked at all data types, but a survey of Product markup showed that not to be the case there, where I was only able to find microdata-generated rich snippets.

This may, however, be a sign of things to come - hope so (http://bit.ly/2nfox5r)!

At time of writing, all sites listed below had recipe rich snippets in the results "baked ziti recipe" (yum!). Pages with http://schema.org/Recipe markup in JSON-LD only are in bold.
