Community Picks Recipe Testing

Community Picks Recipe Testing -- Tomatoes

By • August 16, 2013 • 2 Comments

It's that time again -- help us test recipes for the A&M Smackdown / Your Best Tomato Recipe contest!

Individual Tomato Tarte Tatins on Food52 Summer Raw Pasta Sauce with Spaghetti from Food52

Remember, this is a smackdown: Amanda and Merrill will each submit a recipe, and you'll vote on which you like best. We'll still award Community Picks, which we will announce the week after we announce the two finalists.

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 in the list below! We'd love to see some new testers in the mix -- remember, we accept 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 notes count! Don't forget to email us your headnote (no more than 100 words) to [email protected] by next Wednesday at 5pm (EST). 

When you’ve figured out which recipes are calling your name, in order to sign up, all you have to do is follow the link 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. Act fast -- this button will disappear on the Tuesday before your testing notes are due. 

We'll collect your comments, name the 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!

I wish I had seen this earlier, I could have bought more of the ingredients for more of the recipes. OH, well.

Oh man. I would be one of those really annoying people who completely changes the recipe to meet my gluten free needs, and then votes actually picking a winner.

I won't do that.

Best of luck!
