Tips for creating my personal recipe.

Make sure that no identical recipe already exists on the app, otherwise your new recipe will be rejected by the administrator.
We will not validate a recipe from another author that has been copied from a website or blog.

Be careful, it is forbidden to use a photo from the Internet or a book.
You must take a photo of your recipe's result in order to be able to deposit and share it. Your recipe will be rejected if the photo is found on the Internet and you are not the original author.

Avoid abbreviations of words as much as possible and avoid using too familiar language, local expressions... To be well understood by everyone, regardless of their location!

I can't validate my recipe.

Make sure that you have completed all the fields, including the photo. We need it to encourage other users to make your recipe.
