Ten MORE Tips to Help You Win Cooking and Recipe Contests

If you are serious about Winning Cooking and Recipe contests, you’ve got to keep current with recipe, diet and health trends. Keep up with current trends by getting subscriptions to appropriate cooking magazines and looking through current cook books.  Watch the cooking shows to see if you can spot trends and techniques. Study how popular cookbook authors describe and name their recipes and how they write their directions.

Of course the most FUN part of entering the contests … aside from winning … is the opportunity to test your new recipes on your family and friends.

Here are Ten MORE Tips to Help you Win!

11. Simplify your recipe by combining steps.
