Recipe Tips from the Judges

We’re looking for your favorite recipes with just one requirement, that at least one step contains a short video clip. Using the Kitchenbowl app, you can create a video step that’s up to 10-seconds long. We’d love to see your technique for slicing carrots, rolling dough, or frosting the perfect cupcake. Whether it’s a recipe of your favorite afternoon snack, or your signature holiday cocktail, we’re excited to see your video-step creations!

Kitchenbowl Video How-to

  • To record a video step, select the red camera icon, once camera loads, select the video icon, then hold down the red record button to begin
  • When recording video in-app, you can record different segments of the same step by holding down and releasing
  • To import a video, select the red camera icon, once camera loads, select the camera roll window and chose the video you’d like to import
  • Imported videos that are longer than 10-seconds can easily be trimmed down in-app using sliders to choose which portion you’d like to keep
  • Supported video formats include Live Photo, MP4, MOV, and GIF

1. Be artistic & creative.

Ultimately, we're looking for recipes we'd love to feature and share with the community. The amount of effort you put into each recipe will be evident through the photo quality, and we definitely take that into consideration when choosing a winner. After all, we're all about inspiring one another.

2. Be detail-oriented.

Recipes with clear steps and detailed ingredients are the easiest to follow. We're looking for high quality recipes that we’d love to try ourselves! This doesn't mean we're necessarily looking for the longest recipes, just the clearest, most accurate ones that also look delicious!

3. Be original.

It's totally fine to be inspired by others, as that's how recipes are developed and reinterpreted, but remember, we're looking for YOUR recipes, not someone else's. All the photos you publish must be your own. Your profile is your culinary portfolio, representing your unique flavor.
