It's that time again—time to help us pick the contest finalists for Your Best Appetizer to Share with Friends!
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's 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 ends up being a Community Pick, we'll publish the best headnote, so make your notes count! Don't forget to email us your notes (no more than 100 words) to [email protected] by next Tuesday, January 19th, at 5 P.M. (EST).
When you've figured out which recipes are calling your name, sign up by following the link to that recipe's page. There, 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!
