Welcome to Cook with Us #3.
Before we get to our theme, we'd like to share with you an important change in the rules. We have decided that the first time you enter this competition, we require a proof photograph. This can be in the form of a handwritten note with your user name and date with your final plating - or it can be a photograph of yourself with your dish. Thereafter, you will not need a proof photograph going forward as we will know who you are. See updated rules below.
Now back to our theme ...
The theme for Cook with Us #3 :
This week, Cook with Us would like to see just how sweet you could be. Make a dessert which could be your favorite, a classic or a new creation.
We would like to learn more about your dish. Some ideas of things to share are:
The story behind your dish or why you chose to make it.
The history of the dessert (if it is a classic)
It is up to you what you share with us, but by you sharing, the Cook with Us community get to learn more about you and your dessert. This is how our community grows. Please remember to take some time to support the contestants by reading and upvoting their posts every week.
We wish you good luck and look forward to your creations!
