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 excited to announce that August’s Hotline MVP is Sam1148! Take a moment to congratulate him, and then go make his Cherry Tomato Tequila Butter Salsa -- it's perfect on fish, chicken, your spoon...
Sam1148 not only has the perfect use for all of your late-summer cherry tomatoes, he's also a serious problem solver on the Hotline. Should you find yourself in a cabin with no running water, no electricity, and a sink that pumps in rainwater from the roof: Sam1148 has you covered with meal ideas for an entire week. If you're taking it easy in a regular vacation home with luxury amenities (like a stove), but just don't want to spend the week slaving away in the kitchen: He's got ideas for that too. Staring at ten pounds of parsley? Sam1148 has suggestions. Out of powdered sugar? He'll walk you through how to make it from regular sugar in a mini food processor.
Sam1148's not just the MacGyver of the Hotline, he's full of fun facts, like the best way to properly start a batch of sauerkraut -- according to legend, it's under an oak tree during a full moon. You know how we love food trivia.
Want to boost your kitchen karma? We’re looking for enthusiastic participation throughout the month that is helpful, thoughtful, and considerate.
