To participate contestants need to like your restaurant page and submit a photo with the recipe of their creation. And to win and move to the next level participants need to collect the most "likes" from fans
who'd want to see the winning recipe featured in your restaurant. The reward can be anything from your own establishment gift card to a special table service dinner for the winner and his friends.
