Do you love to cook? Do you yell at the TV that you could do better while watching clueless competitors on Food Network? Do you make everyone wait to eat their food at restaurants because you are trying to capture the perfect photo to post on Instagram? Show us your culinary chops by entering Hour Detroit's Shared Plates cooking contest! Share your best recipes for a chance to win gift cards to some of Detroit’s most popular restaurants!
We started this contest because while we were reporting our November 2016 entertaining feature "From Their Table to Yours" we realized that some of the best food isn't just at the newest, hottest restaurant but can also be found in the homes of passionate home cooks like you!
Anyone who has a delicious recipe to share!
Finger foods! Appetizers, hors d'oeuvres, or even a main dish, some of our favorite foods are best sans silverware. Whether it’s a fresh bruschetta, snackable sliders, or even classic tacos, we want to see your best finger foods for this month’s Hour Detroit’s Shared Plates competition presented by Euro America Design. To enter, please snap a photo of your favorite dish, tag Hour Detroit on social media, and share it with the hashtag #hoursharedplates for a chance to win a $100 restaurant gift card and the opportunity to be featured in a Facebook Live feed hosted at EuroAmerica Design in Troy.
Deadline is Monday, March 19.

3. Hour Detroit staffers will pick their favorite and crown the winner.
4. Winners will be asked to submit their recipes to post on hourdetroit.com and will get their photos featured in an upcoming edition of the magazine.
