Pierino has been a Food52er since the very beginning. He's adept at cooking without a recipe (in addition to the roast chicken article above, check out his guides to paella, burritos, and steak), but his extensive recipe collection shows he's just as comfortable with a recipe as without. Plus, his recipes' headnotes are sure to provide hours of entertainment if you've yet to experience them.
Congratulations to pierino and thanks to everyone who participates over on the Hotline—the community wouldn’t be the same without you.
To thank our members for their dedication to helping out their fellow cooks, every month we’ll choose a Food52er whose activity on the Hotline has caught our eye, and treat him or her to a $25 gift certificate to our Shop. Want to boost your kitchen karma? We’re looking for enthusiastic participation throughout the month that is helpful, thoughtful, and considerate.
