Last week I started working on updating my previous guides that used Dataflows to build the datasets so they can use the latest features from Recipes and Data Prep.

While I was doing so, I remembered that on a Learning Days Webinar it was mentioned Data Prep Recipes are faster than Dataflows because they use a new and improved Spark infrastructure in the backend. So I went ahead and compared the run time of two of my Dataflows vs Recipes.
