Signing up is easy!

You can either enter a few details to get started or sign up through your Facebook account. Don’t worry – we won’t post to your Facebook profile if you sign in using Facebook.

Competitions are monthly!

Every month we will run a new competition designed to stir your creative juices. Some past competitions included recipes like the best juice, best dessert or most savoury!

It’s as easy as uploading a recipe you may already be making at home, or using the inspiration we provide to test a new idea.

At the end of each month, the top two recipes – as voted for by the community and chosen by the brand mentor for the month – will cook the top recipes and decide on the winner.

Winners are announced to the community, via email and on the website.

Your recipes in the spotlight!

Just as easily as you can comment, review and cook recipes on other chef’s recipes on Best Home Chef, the community can also suggest tips, drool over the deliciousness of your creation or rate the recipes you upload.

The most popular recipes will be displayed on the home page and featured in weekly newsletters.

Personalize your profile!

We encourage you to add your photo, twitter handle, blog or RSS feed to your personalized profile that details your entire recipe collection in one location.

How will you check the recipes are original?

The Best Home Chef website will be constantly monitored and scraped for copyright content. If the community reports a recipe as being plagiarised, an investigation will take place immediately. Any reported recipes will be taken down pending an investigation and anyone caught cheating will be immediately disqualified from the competition.
