It's that time again -- help us pick the contest finalists for Your Best Pub Food! This time, though, we’re rolling out a fancy new upgrade to our testing system. 


The game is the mostly same: any Food52 member is welcome to help us test our Community Pick candidates, so go call dibs on the recipe you'd like to test that is included in the list below! We'd love to see some new testers in the mix -- remember, we're accepting up to 3 testers per recipe. And, if the recipe is worthy of a Community Pick, we'll publish the best headnote, so make your comments count! Don't forget to email us your headnote (no more than 100 words) to [email protected] by next Wednesday at 5pm (EST)

Once you’ve figured out which recipes are calling your name, all you have to do in order to sign up is follow the link below to that recipe’s page, and on the left-hand side, you’ll see a “Test This Recipe” button. Your job is easy: just click the button, and you’ll receive a confirmation email that officially crowns you a Food52 community tester. If for some reason you decide you cannot test, simply press the button again, and your name will be removed from the list. 

We'll collect your comments, name the finalists and official Community Picks and publish the best headnote for each Community Pick (with credit, of course!). If the recipe you test isn't chosen as a Community Pick, please feel free to leave your testing notes in the recipe's comments section. Constructive criticism is always encouraged.

Happy Testing!
