Community Picks — Holiday Roast


Community Picks — Holiday Roast

October 28, 2011

Once again, we want to give a big thanks to all of our volunteer recipe testers for your thoughtful comments and for helping us continue to strengthen our recipe recommendations. You can read each tester's comments by clicking through to the Community Picks (that's right: new Food52, new name to reflect the community!) recipes — the comments are at the top. And even if the recipe you tested wasn't chosen as a CP, please feel free to leave your testing notes in the recipe's comments section. Constructive criticism is always encouraged!

Congratulations to another great batch of Community Picks!

    Too bad there wasn't a yummy nut roast in the list for us vegetarians . . . . . . But I must admit, truth be told, that prime rib at the top looks darn good.
