Last weekend, 30 groups of FOOD52ers gathered together all over the country to make mozzarella from scratch at our very first Make Mozzarella Potluck – and we couldn’t be more grateful. Everyone went above and beyond. There was homemade pizza, freshly baked bread, and more, all using freshly-pulled mozzarella and olive oil from California Olive Ranch. (Don't forget that you can buy your own in the FOOD52 Shop!)

And, as promised, one lucky FOOD52er was chosen to win a year's supply of olive oil. Congratulations to phoebe's pure food!

Now, take a moment to check out some highlights below!
