You'll be hearing from the staff at FOOD52 every week in Too Many Cooks, our group column in which we pool our answers to questions about food, cooking, life, and more.
We ate basically everything this week, celebrating the best of summer's bounty. (Does birthday cake count as summer bounty? Let's cheat and say it does.) What have you been eating?
Amanda: Getting ready to eat cake at Addie and Walker's sixth birthday party.
Kristen: Next time you get mealy tomatoes at the greenmarket, mash them into broth for risotto, with garlic, Parmesan rind, water. Fold in sautéed zucchini at the end.
Christina: Taste the rainbow: red, yellow and orange carrots bursting at the greenmarket.
Nozlee: Amanda's Raspberry Swamp Pie, ready to bake.
Kenzi: This granola, the recipe of which was handed down to my boyfriend's mother, is worth going to Connecticut for. This same yellow pot is always magically full at the beginning of the weekend, devastatingly empty by the end.
Jennifer: Grappa cherries ready to soak until Christmas.
Stephanie: Deep-fried tea egg from Emmet Ray. It was delicious.
Rachel: Fairytale eggplants!
