Remember that book of ours that came out in October? Remember when we told you to celebrate yourselves? Well, let’s just say that you followed directions – or, as we can see, went above and beyond. All over the country, over 40 groups of Food52-ers gathered together to break bread and toast our very first cookbook together – and we couldn’t be more grateful. Check out some highlights below!
