The FOOD52 Holiday Recipe and Survival Guide for iPad, a nifty project produced by our very own FOOD52 community, is finally out. And now is the time to put it to the test. And for all of you bloggers out there, we'd love your help!
We'd like for you to try out the app and review it on your blogs. Make a modernish chocolate gingerbread house along with us in the app videos. Or bake one of the desserts and photograph it. Or test out our planning tips for your Open House party. And ask your readers to share their own best holiday entertaining tips.
For anyone who plans to blog about their experience, we'll offer:
- • A video clip from the app to post on your blog
- • A chance for your readers to win free downloads of the app -- we'll award promo codes to the 5 best entertaining tips, culled from everyone's blog post comments
- • We'll link to all blog posts here on FOOD52
All you need to do is send an email to [email protected] to let us know you're blogging (get your copy of the app here if you haven't already). We'll email you back with a link to the video. Please post your blog by Monday, December 19.
Thanks so much and we look forward to hearing from you!

Gluten Free Girl: Amanda Hesser and Merrill Stubbs are so damned smart. They’re not only fascinated by food, but they really know it.

Sassy Radish: I just spent two hours leafing through (leafing, as in an iPad, get it?) the holiday recipes on Food52 Holiday App and can I say something? This is truly wonderful stuff! Amanda Hesser and Merrill Stubbs, the site’s creators, have really outdone themselves here...read more.
Healthy Green Kitchen: I love that this toddy was included in the food52 holiday app, and I really love the app as a whole. If you have an iPad, you should treat yourself to it.

The Newbie Foodie: I usually spend hours scouring the web, looking for helpful hints and recipes. But alas, the genius creators of Food52 have figured these things out for us. They have put together the Food52 Holiday Recipe and Survival Guide app for iPad...read more.
Francoise Villeneuve: As with all of Food52′s recipes, the editing is top-notch and makes it several thousand steps above most commercial apps in that the dishes are hard to mess up since they’ve been so thoroughly tested...read more.
Latinfoodie: I’ve downloaded digital cookbooks before, and they are usually striking and beautiful, but feel that they miss one key component: usability. The digital pages of the Food 52 cookbook for the iPad, on the other hand, are filled with photos, easy-to-follow instructional videos, slideshows, shopping resources – and everything has been integrated seamlessly throughout...read more.
