The end of the holiday season marks the time we love to start looking forward—once the trees are down and the tinsel (grey and on-brand only, please) is put away, we start looking into our future: What will we resolve to do differently in the kitchen this year? What will we finally learn how to cook? Will 2016 be the year we remember by throwing caution to the wind and painting our living room “Rose Quartz”? Or maybe paint over last year’s resolution of the same nature?
But before we sprint into 2016, we want to remember everything that made this past year what it was—the 2015 landmarks that we banded together to make happen, and that we couldn’t have achieved without your help.
Here’s our 2015 highlight reel—and we hope you’ll share yours in the comments:
We started the new year with new digs—bigger desks (our snacks deserved more real estate), more kitchen space, and a studio finally worthy of our talented visual team.
We put three books out into the world via a new imprint with Ten Speed Press, Food52 Works: Kristen Miglore's looker (and NYT bestseller!!) Genius Recipes, and our first two series books, Baking and Vegan.
We went more bananas on Thanksgiving than we ever have. We shot many, many feasts, imagined what it would be like to eat at a table alongside James Beard and Julia Child, and realized that you are, in fact, ready for this jelly when we published our first ever Jello salad.
And because we couldn't let November have all the fun, we also went more bananas in December than we ever have: There was our largest pop-up ever. There was a Cookie Truck that gave out 28,000 free cookies (!). There were 46 cookies from around the world. And a cookie face-off. And now, we sleep. See you in 2016.
I have a thing for most foods topped with a fried egg, a strange disdain for overly soupy tomato sauce, and I can never make it home without ripping off the end of a newly-bought baguette. I like spoons very much.
