The Food52 Cookbook

UPDATE X 3

We are thrilled and impressed by the wide array of plans and ideas you have for parties! One thing we'd like to keep in mind is that we want to celebrate all the hard work that everyone has done on this book -- we see these parties as our chance to use grassroots party planning to send off the book in the best possible way, so that it will sell lots of copies and bring all of your amazing recipes into the kitchens of people who haven't yet learned about Food52. We also appreciate those who have spread the love on their own blogs and websites.

A couple of notes:

The books we're providing are a thank you gift from us to the host. For the rest of your guests, please ask them to remember to register your pre-sales on the Harper Collins website. This puts you in the running for snazzy Food52 totes! And we'll send signed book plates for all pre-sold books!

And please understand that we can't provide wine, books, and OXO tools to very small parties, or to parties that don't specifically have a Food52 Cookbook theme. Hope you'll understand -- we don't want to overstep our bounds with any of our generous sponsors.

We hope you have a fun time and we are looking forward to posting the photos you send us -- hint, hint!

Our hope is that The Food52 Cookbook will be wildly successful and fly off the shelves, so we can continue to do cool projects like this at Food52!

-- A&M

 

UPDATE ON THE UPDATE: Click here to see and join the Food52 Book Parties in the works (more added)!

As you've spent a year (no, two!) cooking up a storm and telling us about it, the promised cookbook's been under way. At last, we are thrilled to announce its release. On October 25th, the beauty (above -- featuring these delicious Zucchini Pancakes) hits stores -- a fun and food-filled 52 weeks of recipes created by you; curated, tested, and published by you and us, and now put in print by A&M and the Food52 community.

And now, we have one final request: stop, drop and throw a party! We're celebrating the launch and you should too. It's simple! Here is a roadmap that will get you on your way to hosting your very own Food52 Cookbook Potluck Party:

1. Brainstorm a list of your favorite food enthusiasts to help you relish in the spirit of Food52. 

2. Have 'em over, ON OR AFTER OCTOBER 25, 2011! Invite your friends using one of our three readymade e-cards (below!) -- now, that's an invite worth RSVP-ing to!

If you want to open up your guest list to other Food52 members on the site, leave a comment below. Let people know where you are, and give your party a name -- like "Julie's Omaha Party" -- so people can register the correct party name for their pre-order (more on this later), and then ask people who want to come to message you through the site.

3. And -- in true Food52 fashion -- there's a prize!

Win a handsome, sturdy Food52 tote (sporting our new logo!) for you and each of your guests, when everyone registers their pre-orders of the cookbook. Totes go to the party with the highest average number of pre-ordered books per attendee. We'll announce the winners on November 20, 2011 and the bags'll ship out soon thereafter! Holiday gift, anyone?

And so: Pre-order the book on Amazon by October 25th!

Don't forget: Register your pre-orders here.

4. But of course -- there's swag! If you host an official Food52 Cookbook Potluck Party between October 25th and December 31, 2011, you'll get:

    • •  5 copies of The Food52 Cookbook
    • •  Signed bookplates for all pre-orders (but just because we're not there doesn't mean you can't sign each other's copies!)
    • • 4 bottles of wine and a boozy surprise for your guests from Lot18, online wine mecca for the first 30 host registrants (however, wine delivery is not possible in the following states: AR, DE, KY, ME, MO, MS, OK, PA, SD and UT. Apologies!) 
    • •  OXO’s niftiest new gadget for you and your guests

 

  • 5. Send us a postcard!
  • No really, we wish we were there. Please email us at [email protected] an album of festive party photos to be featured on Food52. And of course, there's a prize for the “Most Impressive Potluck Array". Go to town!

The Austin food52 party was a blast! Of course, we had too much food, but no one complained about taking leftovers home. For appetizers we had Ginger Tamari Cashews, Crispy Brined Pecans and Texas Sweet Heat-Caramel Pretzels. Then it was on to Creamy Pumpkin Soup, followed by Pastitsio, Couscous with Roasted Fennel and Toasted Almonds, Crispy Delicata Squash Rings with Current, Fennel and Apple Relish, Mr L's Mashed Potatoes, Absurdly Addictive Asparagus and an assortment of smoked meats. We also enjoyed Sesame Dinner Rolls and Buttermilk Oatmeal Bread with Spiced Plum Jam. For dessert there was Applesauce Cake with Caramel Icing, Lazy Mary's Lemon Tart and Boozy Kahlua Cake. It was wonderful being around other "food nerds" talking (obsessing) about recipes, techniques and food52. We can't wait for another excuse to get together!

The Boston party happened 2 weeks ago, but I'm just pulling myself together enough to give a little update now. We had close to a dozen people - our numbers were decreased a bit by a nasty flu that was going around that laid some anticipated guests low. We missed them, but had a wonderful time. The potluck array of food was obscenely delicious, including a roasted garlic butternut squash galette, sausage and kale dinner tart, not too virtuous caramel apple salad, fennel and white bean dip, Faulknerian family spice cake, and a vast variety of other lovely nibbles. We had an absolute blast talking about food52, cooking, traveling, car repair, education, and whether or not it would be a good idea to cook hotdogs and corn in the dishwasher. And we all swooned over how lovely the book is! Thanks to everyone who came for such a fun night.

The Wild West Potluck out here in Tucson was a success! We had almost 30 people (what can I say? the more the merrier it just kept growing). We had a few Food52ers and a few people new to the fold who wanted to learn about the site. Dishes ranged from Roasted Fennel & White Bean dip to Absurdly Addictive Asparagus to Martha's Mac & Cheese and more with Apple Sauce Cake & Millionaire's Shorbread for dessert. It was absolutely fantastic to taste everyone's creations and the wine was excellent!

The Eastern Shore Food52 Book Launch Party was crazy fun! The food was incredible, the wine flowed freely and the group declared it the best-tasting party ever! Food52 has a bunch of new converts and EVERYONE here loves the book - yay, Amanda and Merrill! The dishes ranged from Wild Mushroom Pate (made with mushrooms the cook foraged locally) to Prosciutto and Fontina Panini with Arugula Pesto (on homemade focaccia) to Sweet Potato and Pancetta Gratins (the group favorite) to Lazy Mary's Tart (made by a 10-yr-old girl and her father.) And the guests all found it amusing that the hostess pulled off a food party without a functioning oven! Thanks, Food52, for 2+ years of inspiring recipes and for giving us a great reason to get together with other foodies and stuff our faces. ;-)

A short report from SW New Hampshire: it was a delight! Delicious food, new friends for FOOD52, and treasured visits from sagegreen and sheredel, new members zuzu44 and (member name not known). Everything we ate was excellent. From the site: Kashmiri Hummos, Black Bean and Butternut Squash Salad, Sweet Potatoes Anna with Prunes, Leek-Lemon-Feta Quiche, Savory Bread Pudding, Hearty Harvest Bread.. Finale, Ancho-Cinnamon Chocolate Bark, Graham Cracker Toffee, and my NE Pear Tart (photo from the party now posted). The sleepovers had Simple Gifts Granola in the morning. Only glitch was a broken cork, but you had provided the right amount of wine so there was plenty and it was enjoyed. Book recipients were thrilled and ready to dig in and cook some more. Thank you, FOOD52, for the opportunity -- it was memorable!

Hey all,

Our Food52 Potluck in NYC is tomorrow, November 9, and we'd love some more Food52 ol' timers to come and join us!

To celebrate Food Day, a celebration of local, real, homemade food; Slow Food USA's Real Food 5 Challenge, which encourages us to show what a *real* value meal tastes like; and the release of the community-generated Food52 cookbook, we're organizing a Harvest Potluck.

We'll be raffling off two copies of the Food52 cookbook, and giving one cookbook to the winner of the popular vote for "Most Delicious" (assuming they arrive tomorrow!) We'll also be featuring some delicious food to taste from some local farms and lots of wonderful company.

Please bring your dish, along with your own plates, knife/fork, and a mug/glass/bottle, and meet us on November 9 at 7:30 pm at the St. Johns St Mathew-Emmanuel community hall at 283 Prospect Avenue, Brooklyn, NY.

With any questions, holler back, but otherwise, we'll see you New Yorkers tomorrow!!

Hello all,

We had our Syracuse Food52 potluck Nov. 5 and it was the perfect kickoff for the Eating Season (the time of year you might also know as The Holidays). We had a blast.

There was a little salad drama (when is there not, really, when you're facing 2 1/2 pounds of uncleaned squid in the kitchen, alone) and there were tweeting hijinks, in which the squid was abandoned for another day and a beer was opened (though not in the same household). There was one very large squash, a search for labneh, and, in a non-Food52 move, pumpkin ice cream from Gannon's, which closes for the season next week. (If you don't know Gannon's, then google it, along with directions, to Syracuse. We have great food up here, and Gannon's is just one of our institutions for dessert.)

There was also one of us who set the table, put the meat in the oven, washed her hands and declared this the easiest and most stress-free dinner party she's ever thrown. Now I know the trick: introduce your friends to a great food website, open the front door, and watch them parade in with baskets (even laundry baskets) filled with dinner.

For our party, we tried a few new recipes, including Apple and Endive Salad by onetribegourmet, in which we learned that you can have sumac in your yard and eat it too (though you should visit your local Middle Eastern market to harvest it). TheRunawaySpoon's Fig and Blue Cheese Savouries had us first at the British spelling and then at their light meltiness. They promptly made their way onto a few Thanksgiving menus.

It's obvious why Roasted Carrot Soup by Reeve won for best carrot recipe. Some of us admitted to making carrot soup often, but never roasting the vegies first. The black, smokey flecks from the oven and trace of ginger made some go back for seconds -- and that was just the first course.

For dinner, it was all mash and meat, straight from A&M. We had Amanda's Butternut Squash Puree, a simple list of four ingredients that make an elegant side. If you make this dish, you must serve it in your grandmother's (or someone's grandmother's) dish. It's that good.

Likewise, Merrill's Short Ribs with Beer and Buckwheat has a handful of ingredients that turn into a mix between the best stew and best pot roast you've ever had. It was also a wonderful excuse to go to Lieh's and Steigerwald, one of the happiest places to be on a Saturday morning in Syracuse. People leave that butcher shop with heavy, brown paper bags and great big smiles.

Along with the pumpkin ice cream, we had chocolate bundt cake for dessert from KelseytheNaptimeChef. Like so many good things, this recipe drew a bit of controversy during the last two years. So let me put it all to rest: pumpkin ice cream and this moist, coffee-dunked cake do go together, no matter what anyone says. Especially when you drizzle it with ginger syrup. You'll just have to trust us.

Food 52, you made some new fans and reinvigorated old ones. "It's such a good website," my friend said. "There's no junk to weed through." Indeed. You keep gathering thoughtful, careful and skilled recipes writers from all over. Congratulations on two great years (or is it three?). We're looking forward to the second book and the holiday app and whatever else is in store. Some of us have photos, so editors if you'd like them, please email me and let me know where to send them.

Hope everyone else has as much fun as we did. Happy Eating Season!

As a food/wine blogger myself, I thought it would only be fitting to celebrate my fellow home cooks with a potluck dinner party with my closest friends on November 5th (all foodies of course). We usually host a party once a month and it's finally my turn! Perfect time of year too as Autumn is my favorite... We are planning on each cooking something from the NY Times Cookbook which has been my go-to as of late....so please include me in the promotion, I'll make sure to write a blog post about it! Thanks!

The 'Atlanta Westside' Potluck date is set for November 5. Not only is it our wedding anniversary weekend, but the format is 'flash mob'. Invitees have committed to their dishes.

I would like to wave the flag here in Central Coast California if possible. Halfway between LA and San Francisco. Advantages, I have access to a restaurant sized kitchen where we can and do turn out meals for 25 to 60 people, also it looks like Italy. Disadvantages, certain nights are off limits owing to community meals, my travel schedule, my potential jury service in November. But I would like to get an idea as to who is interested and might be available before I start working the levers with the committee I sit on.

Boulangere I have nothing against e-readers although I'd prefer another platform than Kindle. The sales tax thing is something that Amazon has been fighting state by state bullying state legislaters. But New York and California are too big to push around. So they will start collecting sales tax in 2013. Powells doesn't collect sales tax because there is none in Oregon, but then they don't have a physical or "affiliate" presence out of state. Amazon does. Another mini-scandle involving Amazon was uncovered by the New York Times; "reviewers" getting paid (not by Amazon) to sing the praises of some product or other. So if you believe those reviews, well I have this bridge for sale.

Please, please, pretty please stop referring everyone to Amazon. Amazon is evil for more reasons than I care to go into right now. Please buy your book at a brick and mortar store or an ethical on-line vendor like powells.com. Amazon doesn't want to collect sales tax in your state, whatever state that is and your schools and services suffer as a consequence. This battle is being fought in California and Arizona and New York and South Carolina, the last being a bunch of wimps for caving on it.

I often refer to sourcing questions to amazon.com. It's fast, it's easy. It employs people in its fulfillment sites. But I agree, pierino,there's nothing wrong with broadening our sights. Powells.com is a great source. On the other hand, and smack me down if you need to, a strong business presence that makes good material available to great numbers of buyers has made many publications available to many consumers. Cringing.....

I don't happen now to live in a place where I can buy whatever books I want from a bricks & mortar site. Kindle, yes. But that brings us back to Amazon. I spent a few weeks in Europe with the daughter this past summer and read 12 books on my Kindle. That was 12 books I didn't have to haul with me and pay additional airline fees to carry. The 21st century is a bitch in some ways.

I live in a city where Borders just finished closing down. I'm left with B&N and a couple of storefront used (and great) bookstores. Sometimes looking for or purchasing books has a whimsical quality attached to it. It's one of the things that convinced me it would be okay to move from California to Montana a couple of years ago. Don't even get me started on coffee or NPR. I'll own it, either way.

I don't like Amazon as a general rule but they are convenient and have a huge selection of items that I use all time. BTW, they do collect tax in NY state. I just looked at the receipt of a recent purchase and I paid sales tax. Maybe it varies from state to state. That said when it comes to books I always try to give my local mom and pop booksores business. If they carry the book I want I buy from them rather than Amazon.

Well, I can't make it to your party, but I sure would like to visit that big backyard in Montana sometime! For no reason that I can remember, this originally-from-PA gal chose Montana as my favorite state for a 5th grade (i.e. 1974) report. I was so impressed because, when I wrote to the Montana tourism department for information about the state, they sent me a map! Isn't it silly that I found that to be so cool?! To this day, thanks to that fancy gift, I still have a thing for a state I've never visited. :-) Wish I still had the map!

You might not have a lot of other food52ers nearby, but you can invite anyone you know who loves to cook (or eat!) Introducing new people to the site and the cookbook via a party is totally a good thing!

Still looking for participants for my "Other Side of the Hudson" Book Party. I'm also really close to Lower Manhattan, if anyone wants to venture over on the PATH train.

How do we become an official host?

To become an official host, let people know you're having a party here in the comments section. Let people know where you are, and give your party a name -- like "Julie's Omaha Party" -- so people can register the correct party name for their pre-order (see the above post), and then ask people who want to come to message you through the site.

DO the potluck offerings HAVE to be from the book, or will any food52 recipe be OK?

I think we should message dates to each other and through the process of elimination come up with one thats good for everyone.
If you don't host one CRS would love to have you in Brooklyn. I am just over either the Manhattan or Brooklyn Bridge in the Fort Greene/Clinton Hill neighborhood.

I think we should call it Suzanne's NY metro area party since it includes more than just brooklyn.

Oh, I hope so! I think I have many of the Boston-area folks' emails already. If you want to message me with yours Sagegreen, I can keep you in the loop for when we start planning. And, I hear you on the proposal angst - I'm trying to finish my dissertation proposal by next (ack! ack! ack!), and I'm keeping my fingers crossed that my committee will declare it ready to defend.

You can still participate, throw a party, etc. - it's open to all food52ers (here from the beginning or brand new) and their friends. So, go for it, Panfusine!
