Any food52 member is welcome to help us test our Editors' Pick candidates, so go call dibs on the recipe you'd like to test in the comments section below! We'd love to see some new testers in the mix. Don't forget to email us your notes (about 100 words) to [email protected] by next Tuesday at 5pm.

We'll collect your comments, decide the official list of Editors' Picks and publish your evaluation in the headnote if the recipe is selected as an Editors' Pick (with credit, of course!). And even if the recipe you test isn't chosen as an Editors' Pick, please feel free to leave your testing notes in the recipe's comments section. Constructive criticism is always encouraged!

Thanks, TiggyBee, but you should test this. I didn't notice you had called this first. Just got back from a week of being away from the internet.

Just wanted to say congratulations to all and thank you to the editors. I have not been a tester yet, and would make this my first go if I weren't going out of town like so many of us. Hopefully those who aren't trying to beat the heat with a vacation will enjoy the heat of chili peppers while they test. Congrats, again, and thanks!

Congrats to all finalists, EPs and EPCs. Thanks to the editors (especially Francesca Gilberti) for testing my pepper & corn salsa. I am definitely a bit of a testing hog, so I will refrain until tomorrow to give others a chance.

My sons and I will make and test Pancetta Slaw with Chili-Lime Vinaigrette. I can't eat chilies, but they comment and contribute to all of my other EP reviews, as does Mr. T, so there's no reason not to do so here. Plus, this is the type of dish that I know they'll enjoy, and it's easily adapted for me, as well. Thanks so much. ;o)

I am humbled that you would test my recipe, AntoniaJames, as I am quite a fan. Thank you. I hope you do find it to be adaptable and please let me know what changes you make so I can note them for future use. Thanks again!

Do you make the recipe exactly as stated or do you adjust and get creative while taking notes?

about 3 years ago GoodforthePalate

So do you take the recipe and make it exactly as stated, or can you get a little creative as long as you make notes?

This is from your friendly editors at Food52.

When you sign up to test a recipe for Editors' Picks, we ask that you follow the recipe as written because we want to find out if the recipe is well-written and the finished dish tastes good. If you can't find a particular ingredient and need to make a substitute, that's okay. Or if you don't have a piece of equipment and need to use something else, that's fine too but the idea is to test the recipe as written.
