Have you filed your taxes? If not; no worries, you still have a whole day left. If you’ve already completed the dreaded task and are lucky enough to be expecting a neat little refund, congrats! How do you plan to spend that extra change? Tuck it away into savings right away? Treat yourself to a nice dinner out? How about a nice dinner in?
I asked the Food52 staff what splurge-y ingredients or recipes they’d go to town on with their (real or imagined) tax refunds. The results might have you salivating. Be sure to let us know your own plans below.
Homemade sushi and/or cured salmon; burrata for all meals. (Resident filmmaker Alik Barsoumian +1’ed the burrata.)
I’d splurge on lobster.
Truffles/truffle paraphernalia, and a nice wine that is above my usual price point.
Beef tenderloin from Fleishers.
An entire jamón serrano (or jamón ibérico if I wanna get REALLY spendy).
I’d love to go crazy with truffles and try this soup from our test kitchen director, Josh.
What are you cooking up with your tax refund this year? Let us know!
