To thank our members for their dedication to helping out their fellow cooks, every month we’ll choose a Food52er whose activity on the Hotline has caught our eye, and treat him or her to a $25 gift certificate to Provisions.
Today: See who had the write stuff this month.
We’re pleased to announce that July’s Hotline MVP is Pegeen!
Pegeen is always jumping in to help on the Hotline -- from menu ideas for holiday meals to suggestions for cookware (from griddles to copper pans). She’s kind, and offers creative solutions: When one community member was having trouble making rice, Pegeen suggested aiming for golden-brown rice on purpose, by trying Louisa Shafia’s recipe for tahdig in The New Persian Kitchen. With so many great answers, we're relieved to know that Pegeen's human too -- she's shared a funny side (and a stubborn streak), and occasionally asks questions herself.
And because we know you were wondering (we were too): "Pegeen" is Irish for "Little Peg," in honor of her grandmother, Peggy, who taught her so much about cooking.
Want to boost your kitchen karma? We’re looking for enthusiastic participation throughout the month that is helpful, thoughtful, and considerate.
