Calling All Food Lovers!

Enter Hour Detroit's Shared Plates presented by EuroAmerica Design for a chance to win awesome prizes

Do you love to cook? Do you yell at the TV that you could do betterwhile 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!

Every month we will announce a new challenge through Facebook as well as TwitterInstagram, and our website.
