In Overheard, we're sharing all of the best tidbits we couldn't help picking up onfrom smart tips on the Hotline to funny quotes heard around the water cooler and more.


Here at Food52, we use HipChat to stay connected—we chat to cut down on email, give quick office updates, and, you know, give away broth and fat slices of Wagyu. Sometimes a day's worth of conversations reads like an amaglam of P.S.A.s, and sometimes it plays out like found poetry. We're sharing the latter with you. And with that, here's a minute-by-minute look at Food52 life this week:
