As a community, we believe in inspiring and supporting each other. Often times when we see a member create a dish we feel more compelled and less intimidated to make the same dish vs seeing a professional chef making it. Plus you can ask questions, share your modifications and experience making the dish.
And for folks on Pinterest, all the recipes we create and like are on the Dishmeetup Pinterest board.
