1. I have read the Now That’s A Mouthful Recipe Testing page online and have voluntarily asked to join this group and be bound by this Agreement. I understand all that is involved with the testing process. I acknowledge and understand that testing recipes, by its very nature, can entail risks which may result in injury to self or to others, or damage to property, or both. I agree to accept and assume all risks associated with testing these recipes. My participation as a tester is purely voluntary; I choose to participate regardless of the potential risks.
  2. I agree to test at least one recipe each calendar month. I understand I can test more if I choose.
  3. I understand that the Now That’s A Mouthful community includes all types of cooks, from home cooks to professional chefs. It is my experience with the recipe that is important, and my comments valuable to the testing process.
  4. After I test a recipe, I will complete the short Feedback Form provided on the Recipe Testing page. I understand that I can opt out from making my evaluation and comments public; however the decision to use my comments in the podcast is reserved for the sole discretion of Now That’s A Mouthful.
  5. I will follow each recipe as written. I understand the specific reasons for which I may make changes (allergens, yield, or epic fail situation), and agree to note all changes/reasons, and results because of my changes. By following the recipe as written, I understand this helps evaluate the cookbook, the recipe and provides valuable information to our community and topics for conversation.
  6. I agree that if I don’t consistently participate in the testing process I may be asked to leave the Now That’s A Mouthful testing community. I understand that I can always return when I’m able to fulfill the minimum requirements of testing of one recipe per testing period.
  7. I understand I am not authorized to contact any cookbook author, recipe writer or publishing house directly or on behalf of Now That’s A Mouthful. If I have a question about any recipe, I agree to communicate with Now That’s A Mouthful through email or in a respectful manner in the Testers Forum, if available.
  8. I understand and agree that Now That’s A Mouthful is the only entity with permission from the publisher(s) to reprint the recipes and photographs of the recipes. The recipes provided for testing are private and I agree that I will not publish them in any forum or media form whatsoever. I understand that I am permitted to write about my experience of testing recipes, mentioning the names of recipes, authors, and Now That’s A Mouthful in social media outlets, provided, however, I link to the specific cookbook or recipe, or both, on the Now That’s A Mouthful.
  9. I agree to indemnify and hold harmless Now That’s A Mouthful and any of its affiliates, employees or others related with Now That’s A Mouthful from any and all claims, demands, or causes of action, which are in any way connected with my voluntary participation with this program.
