Congratulations to all the winners whose recipes are going into the first food52 cookbook! We couldn't have pulled together such a great collection of recipes without everyone's extraordinary participation over the past year.
Food52 has been created by you, and we hope you feel the same pride that we do about the site and how it has evolved (remember when your comments would suddenly vanish, or worse, be replicated 18 times?). Lest you fear the site too will vanish, we assure you we're just getting started! We'll begin assembling Book #2 in September, but we have lots of great additions in store even before then; we've already begun our special summer contests, sponsored by Whole Foods Market (each week you have the opportunity to win a $100 gift card!).
Soon enough, it won't just be about the contests, but all things food -- and we look forward to collaborating on every aspect with you.
