Editors' Picks -- Fair Food

August 18, 2011

Red Pepper Jam  Clam Cakes, my Rhode Island style

Any Food52 member is welcome to help us test our Editors' Pick candidates, so go call dibs on the recipe you'd like to test in the comments section below! We'd love to see some new testers in the mix. Don't forget to email us your notes (about 100 words) to [email protected] by next Tuesday at 5pm.

We'll collect your comments, decide the official list of Editors' Picks and publish your evaluation in the headnote if the recipe is selected as an Editors' Pick (with credit, of course!). And even if the recipe you test isn't chosen as an Editors' Pick, please feel free to leave your testing notes in the recipe's comments section. Constructive criticism is always encouraged!

I seriously wanted to test the Lieges waffles (I have a new waffle maker) but my schedule won't allow me to do them justice. But I will taste them as soon as I can.

Congrats to all of the EPs and EP candidates. What a great batch of recipes! So sorry, not to be able to test this week, but I have saved some of these recipes and hope to try them soon. Congrats everyone!

Thank you for the EPC! Sad I missed out on the chance to test - I would have particularly liked to try the peach and blackberry creamsicles.

I'll be making the Sausage and Ratatouille Subs again this weekend, but I don't think it would be Kosher to test my own recipe! (lol)

Have to pass on testing this week, too. Congratulations to you all!
wssmom August 18, 2011
Big weekend coming up so I will pass this week; congrats to the finalists, the EPs and the EP candidates! What a fun contest!

Thanks so much for the EP, Food52 editors and testers, and for the lovely review! This is day 4 of my latest diet, so will have to forego testing this week. But I've got several of these saved to make just as soon as I'm a free woman again. They all look wonderful - congrats to all.
