It's Grilling Week on Food52, and we're charring everything in sight. At this week's photo shoot, we tested enough recipes from our latest barbecue contest to feed a small army of meat lovers (if only we had had some beers to wash everything down!), and you'll want to stay tuned for the results. Baby Clara also paid us a visit, so we naturally dropped everything to ooh and ahh and Instagram. Below are some of our favorite moments from our day in the test kitchen -- remember to follow us on Instagram for more!
Before things got too busy, James took a moment to relax and catch up on some light reading. As Amanda's daughter, Addie, loves to say, "Why isn't James working?" (Hey James, can we ask you a question? Do you like luxury?)
And then Clara arrived. Here's what happens when Clara visits the test kitchen: we drop everything we're doing to coo and ooh and ahh over her, and then we all Instagram feverishly. Clara eats, looks adorable, and smiles. She's even walking now -- and look how much she resembles her mother!
Here's the other side of that picture. Like we said: admiration and Instagram. And lots of funny faces (look at James'!).
Okay, back to business: this grill did a whole lot of work yesterday. We didn't start the fire, but Will did -- and throughout the day, he and Jennifer orchestrated the grilling of a whole lot of meat. Stay tuned for our next round of community picks this week, just in time for Memorial Day -- now where are those beers?
Tell us: what will you be grilling this weekend?
