Where do I copy my custumised recipe in a headless calibre?

I run calibre calibre headless (0.8.51) on Raspberry Wheezy. I am trying to ebook-convert from command-line with a customised recipe but I can't manage to have calibre process my recipe. I couldn't find documentation on the folder where I should copy my_recipe.recipe file and passing calibre the path to the recipe (/home/my_recipe.recipe) doesn't work: calibre complains can't locate the recipe.

If you have the GUI available, Use it to install your custom NEWS recipe (Add a custom....) . Then you can use the CLI

Nope, that's the problem. I have no GUI. calibre is running headless.

You dont need to copy the recipe anywhere, you need to pass the correct path to it to ebook-convert and ensure that hte location it is in is readable.
