  • Recipe Selection: Participants must choose a recipe from Ashley Mac's Kitchen Cookbook to prepare for the contest. The recipe can be any dish of their choice from the cookbook.
  • Cooking Process: Participants are responsible for gathering the necessary ingredients and following the chosen recipe as closely as possible, using the same ingredients and following the instructions provided in the cookbook. Variations to make a recipe gluten free/dairy free/allergy friendly are accepted. 
  • Creativity: While sticking to the recipe is important, participants are encouraged to add their own creative touches or presentation ideas to make the dish their own.
  • Documentation: Participants are encouraged, but not required to document their cooking process and final dish through photos or videos. This documentation will be used for evaluation and may be shared on Ashley Mac's Kitchen's social media platforms. The final submission photo will be what is evaluated. 
  • Submission: Participants are encouraged to submit 1-5 photos or videos documenting their progress plus ONE photo of the final submission via Google Form upload below. The submission deadline will be September 30th. 
  • Judging Criteria: Entries will be evaluated based on factors such as adherence to the recipe, creativity, presentation, and overall appeal of the dish. 
  • Winner Selection: A panel of judges from Ashley Mac's Kitchen, including Ashley, will review and select the winning entry based on the judging criteria. The decision of the judges will be final.
  • Prize: The winner will receive Ashley's Favorite Things Prize Pack, along with recognition and the opportunity to have their winning dish featured on Ashley Mac's Kitchen's social media platforms.
