Maedl is a constant helpful presence on the Hotline. This month we found her identifying giant brown beans, suggesting sightseeing spots, and sharing favorite biscotti recipes. And she was at the ready with suggestions for what to serve with risotto Milanese and which type of sardines to use in a pasta dish.


She’s also familiar with one of our favorite topics—cooking with scraps. When the question of whether or not kohlrabi tops are edible came up, Maedl said: “Yes, my grandmother always cooked them. I think she steamed them first and then added them to a cream sauce.”

Congratulations to Maedl 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.
