Genius Recipes

A Casual-But-Genius Menu to Celebrate Spring

April 12, 2018

Throwing a dinner party doesn’t have to be an over-the-top affair with 10 courses and days of prep. (Although, power to you if that’s what you want!) Our ideal gathering is simple, intimate, and includes at least one dessert. But if we’re going to go simple, every dish should shine. And so we turn to the Genius recipes.

Food52 creative director (and Genius mastermind) Kristen Miglore perused through our Automagic Spring Menu Maker to create a very lively, vegetable-forward Genius spring dinner-party menu (plus homemade bread and a buttery caramel-almond tart). Check out a mini version of Kristen’s menu below, or head here to see the full spread. Then take a turn at using the Menu Maker yourself!
