Judging Criteria

Our team of Rumiano Cheese experts will judge the entries based on the following criteria:

Perceived Taste:  Since we won't have time to prepare all the recipes submitted, we will be judging each entry on it's "preceived" taste.  Does it look and sound appealing to the tastebuds?

Creativity and Use of Product:  There are endless things you can do with cheese.  Especially Rumiano Cheese.  Show us your creative side and better yet, a way to use Rumiano Cheese that we've never seen before.

Visual Appeal:  Since we are relying on preceived taste, the better looking your photo is the better.  Make sure to submit a high quality image that shows just how yummy your recipe is. (5 Tips for Taking a Great Food Photo)

Holiday Theme:  We are looking for recipes we can use during the holiday season.  Dinner party, holiday party, breakfast with the family, etc.  We'll let you be the judge of that!

Orginiality:  Have we seen this before or is this something new?  Remember it still needs to taste good!

Good Story:  Is this a family recipe passed down for generations?  Did you come up with this recipe while traveling abroad? Feel free to tell us your story and what this recipe means to you.
