My Plattershare Feedback

                Complete food Networking Website for Food Bloggers, Chefs, Foodbusinesses and Food Stories 

It's been almost two years since I joined plattershare, as suggest by an another food blogger. I have heavily benefited by connecting to plattershare and am sure the same would continue to happen in the future.
Plattershare happens to be a platform where you can find innovative recipes, know about healthy and delicious food as well as get to know home chefs and their cooking methods. Plattershare provides a impeccable platform for home cooks to be known to the world along with their interesting ideas for delicious recipes.

On plattershare, home cooks such as my self, can share their recipes and show off their talent for cooking without any hesitation. It also gives us an opportunity to share our personal cooking stories.
Plattershare is administered in an impeccable manner by Mr. Ankush Dhiman and Kirti Yadav.
To keep the home chefs hooked , every week there is a special themed competition on Plattershare, where upon winning the same, the winner is awarded with hefty prizes.
Besides the weekly competitions, Plattershare also hosts big competitions which is usually judged by most famous and successful chefs in India, boosting the home chefs to cook innovative recipes.
The three most exciting features on Plattershare for me are;
1) Weekly recipe themed contest, which I happen to win once.
2) Contributor of the week, also which I happen to win once.
3) BellyNirvana Program, through which some handful of home chefs receive organic ingredients from BellyNirvana using which they cook innovative recipes and posted them on Plattershare , sharing their reviews. This program stand out from any other cooking program as it introduces home chefs like myself to the organic products, making our lifestyle and eating habits healthier.

The tasty likes and delicious comments received on our posts (on Plattershare) by other bloggers boosts our confidence and motivates us to introduce innovation in our daily cooking.
One of the best and probably the most important element of plattershare is the fact that it restricts plagiarism and ensures that the credit for recipes posted by home chefs is owned to them only.
What I would like to see, if possible, on plattershare is for them to conduct cooking classes on certain intervals so the fellow home chefs would get to meet in person and more people would join this lovely platform.
Also, there should be more programs like BellyNirvana, if not about organic food products then something else so we the home chefs would learn something and take a step ahead towards healthy lifestyle.
I, from the depths of my heart, would want to thank Mr. Ankush Dheiman and Ms. Kirti Yadav for giving us, the home chefs, a platform so surreal that we could also be known and know our talents, find the creativity inside our self's and learn form each other sitting miles away.
