Cooking Channel Is Looking For Perfect Recipes

The Perfect 3 Recipe Contest

A wise man once said that perfection is a journey, not a destination. Well, he never tasted my Perfect Bacon Mushroom Burger.  But soon the folks at the Cooking Channel will.  Heading into its second season, the network is launching a new show called The Perfect 3.  Though there is a little mystery as to just what the format of the new show will be my guess is it will involve viewers sharing their perfect recipes.

I base this on the Cooking Channel’s new Perfect 3 Recipe Contest.  Here’s the gist:

Kelsey NixonHave you perfected pie? Is your burger the best? Are your cookies unrivaled? Now is your chance to prove it. We’re looking for our fans’ perfect recipes in 13 different categories: cookies, brownies, pies, burgers, tacos, sandwiches, pancakes, salads, hot and spicy chili, cakes, potatoes, chicken and exotic dishes. Share your original recipe for one of the 13 categories for an opportunity to win a trip to New York City to meet Kelsey Nixon and create a short Web video about your winning recipe. Your video will be part of our upcoming summer television show, The Perfect 3.

Simply download their Recipe Submission Form, fill it out with your original recipe that fits in one of the 13 categories, and e-mail it along with a photo of the recipe to That’s it! You’re entered.

That’s some pretty nifty swag – free trip to the Big Apple, your own segment on a national cooking show and the chance to tell Kelsey in person that she was robbed on NFNS 4.  The regulations are pretty straight forward but if you have any questions check out the official rules.  But again, I warn you, if your idea is for a bacon mushroom burger don’t waste your time.  That category is as good as won.  Lockbox.
