Announcing The Food52 Cookbook, Volume 2!

July 16, 2012

The Food52 Cookbook

We’ve been productive here at FOOD52 ever since we announced our original manifesto. We’ve written a book together; we’ve created a holiday iPad app; we’ve grown into a thriving, eager, and fiercely talented community. 

Now, we have yet another accomplishment to announce: The Food52 Cookbook, Volume 2: Seasonal Recipes from Our Kitchens to Yours is now available for preorder on Amazon! It officially hits store shelves November 13, 2012 (with a lovely cover photo by our own James Ransom).

Shop the Story

In it is a year’s worth of innovative, creative, and inspiring recipes from you, our FOOD52 community, from Your Best Red Pepper Recipe to Your Best Peach Tart: a year’s worth of hard work, of beautiful photos, of collaboration from cooks around the world. We can’t wait to share it with you!

Do you have any badges for this like you did last year for our blogs?
Kristen M. October 17, 2012
We're working on this! Thanks for asking. And for anyone who hasn't seen it, we're doing potlucks again for the second book (last year's were amazing!):

YAY! Amanda and Merrill - will you please pretty please include Boston on your book-signing tour this year?
inasmallkitchen November 29, 2012
Yes! Boston! I'd love to go!
Ms. T. July 24, 2012
Woohoo! Congrats and can't wait to enjoy every page before defiling it with splatters of deliciousness in the kitchen :)

Holding my breath however as a result of the incomplete index of the first volume. I hope that you concentrated on getting that remedied for this volume. I completely re-indexed volume one and was about to send it to you (but had no email I could find on the site) when you released the news of vol 2. Love the new cover design. First cover was excellent as well.

Krusher, the best email address to reach us here at Food52 HQ is [email protected]. :-)

I am still loving book 2 looks AMAZING. Very well done!

This is such a great blog post! Very good information! Appreciating the hard work you put into your site and detailed information you present. It’s awesome blog.
Peter July 16, 2012
For those wanting a sneak peek, I'll send a copy of the PDF galleys (gallies?) to the individual who bakes me the best bribe. ;-)

(Edible bribes are the best -- you can eat the evidence before Amanda and Merrill catch you!)

Umm.. how about a serving of cherry & amarula muffins? I'm just writing it up for my blog..
I've already pre ordered the book. The annoying, long hopping on one leg wait is part of the fun of the whole experience..
Cristina S. July 16, 2012
Ooh. How about your dream-ice-cream-flavor-of-choice? With dream-topping?
drbabs July 24, 2012
Just saw this...what's your pleasure? Would love to see the galleys, and am happy to bake in trade.
(I have chocolate pains d'amande in the freezer waiting for an excuse to slice off and bake some more.....)

Love the first book and am truly looking forward to the 2nd!!
hardlikearmour July 16, 2012
Cool, cool, cool! I hope there will be potluck parties again!
lorigoldsby July 22, 2012
I second HLA's suggestion...pot luck parties! Can't wait to show it to my friends!
Panfusine July 22, 2012
In fact the earlier the better. The last set were in Fall.. would love to have an outdoorsy summer event..But I guess thats moot since the book is releasing only in November..
fiveandspice July 16, 2012
Oh, that is truly a gorgeous looking piece of work! Congrats on volume 2, I cannot wait to flip through its pages!
boulangere July 16, 2012
Wow, that was fast. Congratulations!
drbabs July 16, 2012
I. Am. So. Excited...!
cookinginvictoria July 16, 2012
Gorgeous cover! Love, love James Ransom's photo. Can't wait to see this cookbook when it is published. Congratulations to everyone involved!
TasteFood July 16, 2012
Beautiful cover!
cheese1227 July 16, 2012
Another one for the shelf in the kitchen -- that's the one with all the books I use regularly!
aargersi July 16, 2012
How exciting! Congratulations on another one! Cover is great
EmilyC July 16, 2012
Seeing this announcement made my Monday! By the way, are the ingredients on the cover those from Caramelized Butternut Squash Wedges with a Sage Hazelnut Pesto? That's such a killer recipe.
Kristen M. July 16, 2012
You got it! I was thinking we should have come up with a guessing game.
Cheazza July 16, 2012
The first volume is already dog eared from overuse. I can't WAIT to see what your second volume has come up with.
Cheazza July 16, 2012
Oh, also... will you guys have a release party again? We went last year at City Grit and it was so much fun!
