OPEN CALL For Submissions

Did you read Lukas Volger's beautiful post last week, all about his memories of cooking with his mother?

It was the first in our new series of essays on food, and we want to hear from you! We're seeking short essays of 500-1000 words that tell your food stories, food memories, and food knowledge. Whether it's a short paper on the origin of the modern New York bagel, a personal essay about your grandmother's zeppole, or a piece about the first time you cooked for yourself as an adult, we want to hear your stories. No restaurant stories or news, please -- we want to hear about home cooking. And if you have a recipe to include, that's all the better!

Here are all the details:

Pasted into the email -- no attachments! -- send your 500-1000 word piece and optional recipe to [email protected].
• If your essay is accepted, you'll be ask to create a FOOD52 account (if you haven't already) and to upload your recipe.
• Accepted essays will be published in Feed52 twice a week.

We look forward to reading your work! And watch out for an essay by our very own Brette Warshaw tomorrow on Feed52.
