Every week our friends at Real Time Farms feature the top photos of farms, food artisans, and farmers markets shared on their site.
These D'Avignon radishes are ready to be nabbed by a shopper at the Wellfleet Farmers Market in Wellfleet, MA. Click here to see more, and then add a photo of your own - you might be featured here next week!
Yesterday in the test kitchen, we cooked up the finalists and community picks for Your Best Pub Food. It was a bit of a crazy day -- so much deep frying! -- but a really delicious one too. Here are three snapshots of the day, dirty dishes and all. For more, follow us on Instagram at @food52.
Friend of FOOD52 Sarah Rich is a busy woman -- between the fantastic Longshot Magazine and a career writing for everyone from Gourmet to Wired, she's been traversed every corner of the food world. Her most recent project is Urban Farms, a new book with photography by Matthew Benson that we wrote about a few weeks ago.
We spoke to Sarah about her new book, the movement toward small-scale agriculture, and how you can get involved in the movement. Be sure to check out Urban Farms!1
With the philosophy that kids who plan their own meals grow up to be better eaters, LaLa Lunchbox combines adorable graphics with truly helpful tools for busy families. Kids feel empowered because they get to choose their own meals, parents save money (the app generates a grocery list for you -- no more wasted, unwanted food), and everyone saves time -- both in the mornings when packing lunches and at the store.
It's interactive, it's educational, and it can be 100% personalized to your pantry. You can easily add your kids' favorite dishes -- whether that's mac and cheese or pickled ramp and cream cheese sandwiches -- to the database, and you can share your children's lunch ideas via Facebook, Twitter, or email. ("You'll never guess what our oldest picked for lunch -- maybe yours will like it too!")
We're celebrating the artisans, writers, makers, and more who make up the diverse and inspiring world of food.
Today: Fany Gerson of La Newyorkina has a tough day -- bookended by a parking ticket and a towed car! -- that is redeemed by her delicious ice creams and paletas.
Fany Gerson was born and raised in Mexico City. After attending cooking school in Mexico and at the Culinary Institute of America, she worked in kitchens worldwide, including Michelin-three-star Akelare in Spain, Eleven Madison Park, and Rosa Mexicano in New York, where she developed their acclaimed modern Mexican desserts. Her cookbooks are My Sweet Mexico: Recipes for Authentic Pastries, Breads, Candies, Beverages, and Frozen Treats and Paletas & Aguas Frescas, both from Ten Speed Press. She started her company La Newyorkina in 2010.
We can't tell you much about French Cuisse. Its author, William Matthew Valle, is a 19-year-old kid studying restaurant management in Montreal, but his blog is intruigingly spare of any of other identifying details. "Spare" is what he does, though, and with tremendous success.
