It's a process that takes place over several weeks. While we'll make the final call, we'll also be relying on our community's input in a big way—which recipes you favorite, your comments and ratings on these recipes, and any feedback you send to firstname.lastname@example.org. We'll announce a list of 5 contenders midway through the third month (so, for 2020: March, June, September, and December). The 5 recipe contenders will all be made and reviewed by our team members. (We hope you'll test some of them at home in your own kitchen as well, so you'll be ready to vote. Add any feedback to the recipe page comments or reach out to us directly at email@example.com.) After testing, we'll whittle it down to 2 finalists. We'll announce them on the contest's landing page on the 1st of the fourth month at 12:00 PM ET (so, for 2020 contests: April 1, July 1, October 1, and January 1, 2021). Then we'll open up voting. You'll have about a week to check out the finalists, cook the recipes, and document the results. You can cast your vote on the site. The deadline to cast your vote will be 12:00 PM ET on the 8th of that fourth month. We then tally up the votes.
