For the first time in two years, we're not announcing a new recipe contest this week. (That will come next Friday at noon, so be ready!)
As we mentioned last week, some exciting changes are afoot at Food52. We'll be announcing a new contest every two weeks, but in between we'll have more ways for you to get involved and stretch your cooking (and various other) muscles.
More fun to come (as we build the tools), but for now, we'd like to first extend the challenge to photograph some of our most recently awarded Editors' Picks (both tested by us and community-tested) for a chance to have them selected as top photos for the site.
This week, we want you to shoot the award-winning recipes from our Cherry Tomatoes contest (see below for the full list). No need to call dibs -- just shoot any that strike your fancy. Then just upload your best shot to the recipe by the normal submission deadline, next Thursday, September 8th at midnight.
This will give you a chance to cook (and eat) more of our vetted recipes, practice your food photography skills, and get a shot at photo credit on Food52. To brush up on lighting and all that jazz, Heidi Swanson has a great tutorial here and check out these helpful Foodpickle threads (here and here).
And if the idea of not dreaming up a recipe this week is giving you the shakes, remember how we said Wildcard winners are coming back? And we said "Holiday iPad app"? Consider this a study break week, to work on developing those festive holiday recipes that might not fit into an upcoming theme. We'll be on the prowl.
Cherry Tomato Editors' Picks -- fire away!
