Be a star! (sort of) :: Make your own foodie video and win stuff!

So, epicurious.com is having a really fun contest this holiday season.

The basic premise is that you make a video showcasing your cool cooking technique or recipe.  Or maybe pretty table setting or signature drink you can mix up.  Then the fine folks at epicurious choose winners. The Grand Prize is a Michael Chiarello 10-piece cookware collection. And who couldn’t use some really nice new pots and pans, I ask you? I’m drooling over this set, myself.

You simply must check out some of the favorite videos posted on the site even if you don’t have the cojones (like me) to submit one.

And remember if you are thinking of making a video, but are feelin’ a little camera shy, you don’t even have to be in it! Take it from the folks who made the video called, “Julian’s Yogurt-Eating Tricks” or “Paul Pizzaro’s Easy Hors D’Oeuvres. I laughed out loud. And now I’m making a snack and going back to watch a few more. It’s totally entertaining.
