So, let's go over the rules again.
Theme ingredient - chocolate, in any form

1. The theme ingredient must be used in all recipes posted
2. Recipes for each item will be provided in the post
3. Pictures of the finished items will be posted
4. There will be three courses, appetizer, main course, desert, and a beverage
5. Contestant must give an accurate critique of each recipe, telling difficulty, quality of the foods prepared, i.e. taste, texture, execution.
6. All entries will be posted no later than Feb. 12, 2011 by 9:00 p.m. Pacific Time.

Judging will be done by poll. Poll categories:

This may be a silly question, but how are we to judge best flavor, is it the flavor profiles we prefer???

Okay, first of all, it is FIVE courses. Second, this poll is not the final product. We will have a series of polls set up soon. But they will not be usuable until all 3 contestants have posted their entries.

One question that concerns me is that we can't have the entries and the votes both due on Feb 12th. But we also can't have one person posting on the first and the other 2 waiting. That would be a possible unfair advantage. So, posting of entries will be on February 12th from 12 am to 9 pm PST, and voting will close on February 15th, midnight PST.

Goodweed?

One of the other contestants has already created her meal. I did mine today....and am DYING to share! Honestly, I'm not so worried that someone would take an idea. I just want to post my items. Besides...my taster has to comment as well. :)
