This week, we're rounding up our favorite things of 2013: the prettiest, the funniest, and the nerdiest things on the internet this year.
Today: Prepare to laugh and swoon -- here are our favorite food gifs of the year.
Oh, you lucky few: you who get a whole delicious platter of food gifs served right up to you, without having to surf Tumblr for hours. Think of it as a New Year's present.
It's no secret we at Food52 love food-related gifs. We love to laugh at them, we love to stare open-mouthed in awe of their beauty, and, above all, we love to share them. That's where you come in. Prepare to laugh, salivate, and maybe cry (with laughter). And then share with your friends. Because if a gif isn't shared, does it really exist?
Note: Some of the material for these gifs may have occured before 2013, but the gif itself was created this year.
