Step 1: Experiment Experiment with different ingredients you like until you come up with a few good dishes. Tip Replace a few ingredients in a tried and true recipe. Step 2: Incorporate trends Incorporate the latest food trends into your recipe. Read food magazines to find out what is popular, and see if it works with your recipe. Step 3: Simplify Keep it simple. Cooking contests often look for recipes with short preparation times using ingredients that are found in most kitchens. Step 4: Taste test Have friends and relatives taste your recipe and give you suggestions. Step 5: Follow the rules Follow the rules of the contest to make sure your recipe is eligible. Skipping a rule is the fastest way to be disqualified. Tip If a contest suggests using a product, use it. Look at the suggestion as a requirement. Step 6: Write the recipe Write the recipe clearly, and make sure to include ingredient amounts, cookware needed, detailed instructions, and how many servings the recipe makes. Step 7: Prepare the dish Prepare the dish at the contest following the recipe exactly as you wrote it. Bring enough of the ingredients to make the required number of dishes, and any utensils needed. Present the dish so it looks appetizing. Did You Know? Teflon coating was accidentally created in 1938 by a chemist who was experimenting with gasses for refrigerants.
