There are many contests going on, and I was eating so I thought why not make a cooking contest?

Here's how it'll go down:
There will be 12 contestants and 6 judges.

Here are the qualification requirements for the judges:
-Must be able to follow directions exactly
-Must be able to access a large variety of ingredients
-Must have access to some kind of media (Video, Camera, Audio, etc.)
-Must be awesome (and a decent cook)

And here are the qualification requirements for the contestants:
-Must have good food
-Must be able to choose one dish with ingredients that are possible to find (no illegal ingredients: Peruvian Puff Pepper, Shark, etc.)
-Must have access to some kind of media (Video, Camera, Audio, etc.)
-Must have good food

For the actual contest:

TIER 1
-Each judge will get one dish from two UGers
-The recipes will be sent to that judge in the form of a list, with extra directions in the form of some media, such as a video, pictures, audio file.
-The judge cooks the contestant's food. If the recipe is secret, you have two options; (1)Don't enter it, and (2)PM the recipe to the judge.
-After the judge cooks both dishes (at least a day apart), he/she will judge what food was best.

TIER 2
It will then be narrowed down to 6 contestants and 3 judges, and the same thing happens.

TIER 3
Finally, there will be only 3 contestants left. The three judges that weren't in the second tier are now the judges for the final tier. EACH JUDGE WILL MAKE ALL THREE DISHES. After all three dishes have been eaten (at least a day apart), they will make a council with me in IM or something similar. From there, it will be decided who gets 1st, 2nd, and 3rd.

"WHAT DO I WIN???"
-A title. You will be recognized by all UGers as "The best/2nd best/3rd best cook on UG".

Judges will be chosen randomly for each tier (using a random number generator)

Contestants:
1. Jackal58 (CHILI!)
2. Dream Floyd (Macaroons)
3. totheark (Chocolate Chip Cookies)
4. Thrashtastic15 (Jamaican Jerk Chicken )
5. undecided1993 (Cupcakes)
6. bbetances (Chicken & Broccoli Alfredo)
7. Dawginator (Beef Stroganoff)
8. OMGWinner (TBD)
9. Martyr's Prayer (Spaghetti Alle Vongole)
10. MakinLattes (Garlic Mashed Potatos with Shallots)
11. Andrea55 (Spaghetti)
12.

Judges:
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.

Good luck and have fun everyone!

Edits: Your dish will be put in parenthesis next to your name. Also, you are not allowed to change dishes between tiers. I will be adding more things here as I think of them.


You have to make a video/pictures/audio file of your recipe to the tee. Putting love in your food is BS. Judges have to follow the recipe EXACTLY. If you see something wrong then you can contest it. If I see that the judge is wrong we can get another judge or you may automatically be excelled into the next tier.

Judges are also highly recommended to make the food multiple times before they make their own video/picture album/audio file of them making it.

If two recipes are required, I can make/send a recipe for my preferred chocolate chip cookie recipe.

1 problem. The whole online aspect of this competition eliminates the taste sensation.

Nice going.

Edit : Well, doesn't eliminate it, but it totally messes everything up. Surely you should be judged on your cooking skills and not someone else's ability to follow a recipe.

I can post up the recipes and stuff if it's not a "secret recipe" or whatever (ie if the person that gave the recipe allows it)
Also, there will be videos/pictures of the person making it that may be released.

So you're entering? Should I put macaroons next to your name?

Quote by Jackal58


Does this mean you want to enter?

That's why I stated you have to make a video of your recipe to the tee. Putting love in your food is BS. Judges have to follow the recipe EXACTLY. If you see something wrong then you can contest it. If I see that the judge is wrong we can get another judge or you may automatically be excelled into the next tier.

This. Judges should be required to do recipes multiple times...

In general:
Should I separate the food into categories?

Then we get a different judge or the contestant is automatically excelled into the next tier.

I'm gonna post my recipe in here just for kicks. I'm giving you guys the foolproof simplified one, so if you mess this up you are an r-tard.

Jamaican Jerk Marinade (omnomnom)

Dry Ingredients:
1tbsp allspice
1 tbsp dried thyme
1.5 tsp cayenne pepper
1.5tsp black pepper
1.5tsp ground sage
.75 tsp ground nutmeg
.75tsp cinnamon
2tbsp salt
2 tbsp garlic powder
1tbsp sugar

Wet Ingredients:
1/4 cup soy sauce
3/4 cup vinegar
1/2 cup orange juice/mango juice
2 limes, juiced
3/4 cup olive oil

Veggies:
1 or 2 scotch bonnet peppers finely chopped
1 cup of minced onions
1 finely chopped green onion


Now the only real thing you have to do is mix the olive oil in last so it doesn't seperate, other than that it's pretty much impossible to fuck up, just mix everything together lul. Put the delicious meat in the marinade, let it sit for a couple hours, grill that shit up. omnomnomnomnom

I know, I've got the kitchen to myself tomorrow so I'll make a video. It's not like you can fuck it up though, but then again some of these pitmonkeys probably have burned soup.

I would participate, but I don't wanna do a competition where someone else is making my food. It's just not the same.

This is going kinda slow. If anyone knows anyone that's a good cook or just wants to be a judge, just let me know.

I want you to take part of the competition or to be a judge. Would be interesting.

I tried to give this thread a 5-star rating but it doesn't seem to go through. I tried 3 times.
