Welcome to DC. I haven't seen a ton of contest talk, but I'm sure they are out there and would love to talk about it!

I'm interested in one thing though. What type of contest did you win, and with what did you win it with? I've never seen a contest in real life, but it does sound fun!

You do a lot of searching and looking and then some experimenting of your own. Like any other great idea that someone comes up with - they draw inspiration from things they see.

The best prize in a cooking contest are the words "very tasty"
It is quite enough!

Cooking contests are really fun. I have put together a cooking team to participate in steak cooking contests. Does anyone on this forum know of any upcoming steak cooking competitions?
