Why Aren't the Recipe Contests Anonymous for the Judges?
Someone on another post mentioned that the recipe contests are not judged anonymously(the contestants are not anonymous when their recipes are judged.) Why is that? It seems to me that all contests, to be fairly judged, should not have the contestants' names attached to their recipes.
I understand that for the 52 community, the names are helpful when they are following friends or certain chefs, but when it comes to the judging by the editors , I think the names should not be visible to them. Couldn't some of the new influx of 52 funding be used to create a computer program for the recipe editors that deletes contestants' names from their recipes?( so that all 'award winning' recipes, including Wild Cards, for example, could always be judged and chosen anonymously?)
