Every month we choose a Food52er to thank for his or her generous help and guidance on the Hotline, and we're excited to announce that May's Hotline MVP is Sam1148.
Sam1148 is a longtime Food52er and constant helpful presence on the Hotline. He’s always ready with suggestions for everything: uses for 6-inch cake pans, substitutes for fresh crab, and ideas for what to do with pork belly and canned sardines.
Plus, we appreciate that he often injects his thoughtful responses with humor, as evidenced by the name of his sourdough starter and his response to our own Software Engineer Micki, who was looking for suggestions for food souvenirs to bring back from Scotland and Ireland:
You can get haggis through the customs if you don't claim it as food but rather a cultural artifact.
Congratulations to Sam1148 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.
