Food52 Cookbook

The Food52 Cookbook is out today -- yay for us all!

2 1/2 years ago, Amanda & Merrill got the big idea to make the first ever crowd-sourced cookbook (and along the way ended up with a buzzing community on their hands). Today, a year's worth of your delicious recipes officially hits the shelves!

Thank you all for helping build this amazing book -- by entering your recipes, voting, and commenting during those first 52 weeks -- you'll see your contributions scattered through the pages.  140 recipes from 100+ cooks, loaded with tips and insights from the community -- it all makes for a pretty fabulous cookbook, if we do say so ourselves.

Order the book! (for you, your friends, family, neighbors, babysitters, professors, piano teachers...) Get an exclusive signed copy in our Shop!

• Meet up with Amanda & Merrill on The Food52 Cookbook Tour

• Find a local Food52 Cookbook potluck party to attend

• See when you all helped decide the title

Got mine over the weekend, just in time for our Boston book launch party, and a lovely lass she is. I'm so proud to be a part of such a terrific project, kudos to all who had a hand in design, layout, photography, etc., but especially to A&M. Very nicely done, ladies.

I love my book -- beautiful job everyone! My favorite part is seeing so many of the recipes I want to try safely stored between covers and not online where I could forget them or lose them.

It's hard to add praise to all that has been said, except to say, it's all true! My copy was sitting on top of my mailbox (today the box was delivered in a plastic supermarket bag; how appropriate!) under inches of wet snow. Of course it was perfect, beautiful -- as expected; but what I did not expect was that it is heavy, hefty, yet perfectly balanced for practical use in the kitchen. Sure beats hauling the PC around... A party attendee got her copy 2 days ago and loves it -- she's new for FOOD52 -- good work!

ChefJune! When are you in Boston? If you are here on the 30th, you should come to our party! Then you'd get to have two parties in a row! :)

Congratulations! I just got my cookbook in the mail. It is great. Love the clarity of the recipes and the tips. Enjoyed reading about the cooks also. The only disappointment is my kitchen is under construction and I can't start cooking from the book right now!

UPS just delivered my Food52 cookbook. It looks fantastic. Congratulations; it looks fantastic! The photography is beautiful; the recipes put together by seasons; and there is a significant amount of emphasis on the community aspect of this site. I especially like the Menu section in the back. Planning my dinner party now.

Congratulations A & M, and kudos to all the winners/contributors! I pre-ordered my cookbook about 6 or 7 weeks ago through Amazon - can't wait to see it and smell the fresh print. Over the past year F52 has become my absolute favorite website, hands down. I feel out-of-sorts if I am not perusing it at least once a day! This is a wonderful concept that you should all be so proud of.
