Any Food52 member is welcome to help us test our Community Pick candidates, so go call dibs on the recipe you'd like to test that is in the list below! We'd love to see some new testers in the mix -- remember, we accept up to 3 testers per recipe. And, if the recipe is worthy of a Community Pick, we'll publish the best headnote, so make your notes count! Don't forget to email us your headnote (no more than 100 words) to [email protected] by next Wednesday, November 26th at 5pm (EST). 

When you’ve figured out which recipes are calling your name, in order to sign up, all you have to do is follow the link to that recipe’s page, and just above the comments, you’ll see a “Test This Recipe” button. Your job is easy: Just click the button, and you’ll receive a confirmation email that officially crowns you a Food52 community tester. If for some reason you decide you cannot test, simply press the button again, and your name will be removed from the list. Act fast -- this button will disappear on the Tuesday before your testing notes are due. 

We'll collect your comments, name the finalists and official Community Picks and publish the best headnote for each Community Pick (with credit, of course!). If the recipe you test isn't chosen as a Community Pick, please feel free to leave your testing notes in the recipe's comments section. Constructive criticism is always encouraged!

Can you make substitutions in the recipe, i.e.: dairy milk for nut milk, or butter for earth balance?

Definitely want to try some of these recipes! I'm new here..what's a headnote?

Hi Alyssa, welcome to food52! The headnote is the text before the recipe that is prefaced with "Food52 Review." This is where the recipe tester's notes are published. The tester comments on the recipe in about 100 words, describing how the recipe worked and how the dish tasted. Each recipe has up to three testers. The editors pick the head note that they feel best represents the recipe. Testing recipes is a lot of fun -- hope that you will consider becoming a tester! : )
