Food52 Is 10! (& We Couldn’t Have Done It Without You)

A note from our co-founders.

August 22, 2019

Hello Food52ers!

10 years ago, while cooking together in Amanda’s kitchen, we came up with the idea to create an online hub—the first of its kind—for those who believe that food is at the center of a well-lived life. We knew there was a world full of people who cared about how they eat and cook and live—homebodies, just like us!—and we wanted to bring them all together to share ideas, tips, and inspiration for eating thoughtfully and living joyfully.

Rewind to 2009...and the hundreds of recipes we whipped up in Amanda's kitchen.

So that’s what we did. And here we all are, together, 10 years in—including our wonderful team of 80+ people! Talking about the best way to stretch pizza dough, how to clean your pots, why we love laundry balls so…and so much more. We’re putting out cookbooks, with your help. We catch up with you at our events. We learn from you on our Hotline. And now we’re creating Five Two, a line of the very best kitchen and home goods, with you.

Fast forward to now—we're still cooking!

To celebrate Food52’s 10th year, we have a few surprises in store, with many more to come:

  • A brand-new homepage to help you find exactly what you want, faster.
  • Our top 10 cake recipes of all time!
  • Exclusive product launches—10 of ’em, of course—starting with this brilliant cutting board we created with Epicurean.
  • $9 off any order* (we’re covering the shipping!) just for today, August 22nd. Enter code HAPPY10 at checkout.

Thanks for hanging around with us for the past decade. We have so much fun stuff planned for the future, and we can’t wait to reminisce with you at our 20th!
