If you think about eating at a restaurant, there are typically three courses. But the first course might have two appetizers. The main course might have a protein, a veggie, and a starch. The desert might be a multi-ingredient thing, like maby a piece of hot pie, with some type of topping made separately, or even multiple choices.

You can still have at least 5 items within a three course meal. So, though there are three courses, what you put in those courses is up to you.

Will the polls reflect this?

Okay, everyone, it is time for me to fess up. I offered to put the polls up for GW as he was having problems with it. I was sick all weekend with a horrid stomach flu and jumped the gun a bit. I also read what he had, but in my mind it was five courses (I am used to cooking this but not many are. And I skipped the beverage altogether even though this was all in the post above from GW that I was working from.

From what I can tell of Goodweed's intention, the polls should be for appetizer, main, dessert and beverage and your interpretations of those course are up to you. An appetizer can be soup, salad, etc.

If GW can confirm this for me once and for all I will redo the polls and set them for February 12th.

You are absolutely correct.

What if you were to place the individual contestants as the poll choices, and then in the title, either put in the judging categories, or jsut make the poll reflect the overall quality of the meal, without individual categories. The people who respond should write why they like the contestant's recipes.

Just some thoughts.

This is what I did over a week ago, but I really like the idea of just having one poll judging overall quality of the meal and use of the ingredient. This is a friendly competition and how do you really vote on "taste" when you can't ?

I will remove all unnecessary polls and leave the one. By the above I believe I have GW's approval on this so will just go ahead.

The simpler the poll (and, with apologies to the hard-working contestants, the less a chore) the more members will chime in with a vote. Plus, we don't want to put too fine a line on "judging" - the shirt looks great, but the pants make your butt look big.
