Sign up for a video conference time slot

We want to do a video conference recipe test with 2 families for each recipe. We'll log onto Skype or Google Hangouts, or call you via Apple FaceTime when you cook so we can see how it goes!

This is purely optional, you can also just cook the recipe on your own time and submit a feedback form. But it’s helpful for us to watch you cook if possible. :)

 How recipe testing with Nomster Chef works

  1. Each family needs to sign the consent, NDA, and media release form prior to participation.

  2. We'll post the ingredient lists and recipes on this page the week before we start each round of testing. You'll get lots of email reminders when it's time to cook.

  3. You can either make the recipes on your own time and send us the feedback form, or sign up to test the recipes live with Ashley (the founder) via a video call. You can make all 8 recipes or just 1, or somewhere in between! Whatever works for your family. And we also love if you send us photos and videos from your testing too. :)

Why are we recipe testing anyway?

To find out:

  1. If recipe steps are confusing

  2. If we left out anything (tools, ingredients, a step, etc.)

  3. If the recipes are appropriate for kids to cook

  4. If families like the recipes!

What we'll do with your feedback:

Make any adjustments we need to before turning the text-based recipes into our illustrated recipe storybooks. (See what an illustrated recipe storybook looks like here!)
