"Each week Amanda Hesser and Merrill Stubbs host recipe contests revolving around specific foods (everything from pancakes to lamb) on their site Food52. After testing the recipes, they announce the two tastiest finalists and the community votes on the winner. Naturally, they've been focusing on Thanksgiving lately. Elbow-deep in stuffing preparation, they paused to chat with us and share some of their favorite recipes for Thanksgiving sides, including celeriac puree, glazed brussels sprouts with browned butter and cream, potato leek au gratin, and pink greens." - Erin Zimmer
"Two weeks after top-shape runners from around the world compete in the New York City Marathon, competitive New Yorkers from another set will gather at The Bell House in Brooklyn for an amateur culinary competition of delicious proportions." - Brian Ries, NBC New York
