As some of you have probably noticed and started scratching your heads about, we've come to the end of Week 52 of Year 2, meaning we've created two whole cookbooks together as the Food52 community (the first one will hit store shelves October 25th and the second a year after that -- more on this soon!).
But what does that mean for next week? If we aren't building a cookbook, what are we doing, exactly? Well, in the past two years, Food52 has stayed true to its roots as a site that crowd-sources and curates recipes -- and, most importantly, celebrates great cooks -- but it has grown into much more than that. It's a living, and thriving, food community online (and from time to time, in person) -- one that is unlike any other. We share recipes, and test each other's recipes. We help each other out of cooking pickles and debate the top stories in food news. And we're not going anywhere.
We have a lot in store this fall, but for our next, most immediate trick, we want to try something a little different. We'd like to build a holiday iPad app together over the next couple months -- which means we would see the results of our collective efforts by this coming holiday season.
So you'll start to notice our contest themes thinking ahead a bit, with festive holiday entertaining in mind. First up: Your Best Greens.
We'll also be switching up our contest schedule slightly -- now contests will run a bit longer, but we'll also be photographing more of our tested Editors' Picks, bringing back Wildcard winners and, in between contests, there will be more ways for you to get involved.
We're excited about all of these changes, and there's more where they came from. Stay tuned and keep cooking with us -- here's to the next 52!
