Community Picks -- Lettuce

September 14, 2012


It's that time again -- help us pick the contest finalists for Your Best Lettuce! 

Any Food52 member is welcome to help us test our Community Pick candidates, so go call dibs on the recipe you'd like to test that is in the list below! We'd love to see some new testers in the mix -- remember, we're accepting up to 3 testers per recipe. And, if the recipe is worthy of a Community Pick, we'll publish the best headnote, so make your notes count! Don't forget to email us your headnote (no more than 100 words) to [email protected] by next Wednesday at 5pm (EST). 

Shop the Story

When you’ve figured out which recipes are calling your name, in order to sign up, all you have to do is follow the link to that recipe’s page, and on the left-hand side, you’ll see a “Test This Recipe” button. Your job is easy: just click the button, and you’ll receive a confirmation email that officially crowns you a Food52 community tester. If for some reason you decide you cannot test, simply press the button again, and your name will be removed from the list. 

We'll collect your comments, name the finalists and official Community Picks and publish the best headnote for each Community Pick (with credit, of course!). If the recipe you test isn't chosen as a Community Pick, please feel free to leave your testing notes in the recipe's comments section. Constructive criticism is always encouraged!

Happy Testing!

I have a thing for most foods topped with a fried egg, a strange disdain for overly soupy tomato sauce, and I can never make it home without ripping off the end of a newly-bought baguette. I like spoons very much.

A big thank you to the development team, and one to all of you for bearing with us!

Hi, all. Sorry about the broken buttons. I just sent out a fix, so they should all be working now. Happy testing!

The button is back, and it works! (On the diagonal corner from where the 'article' says it is.) Shop, cook and write -- excited to be testing again. (Actually, so excited that I put my comment on the recipe page.)

You're all right -- the site is experiencing a bit of a glitch at the moment, but we have our lovely development team working on this as I type. Hopefully we'll be back up and running soon, and if not, we can push the testing deadline back a bit to accommodate. Thank you all so much for your patience and for your lettuce enthusiasm!

Test button is busted, but I'll take the Autumn Salad!

Test button doesn't work for me either.

The "Test Recipe" Button doesn't work. Is it me or a site problem?
fiveandspice September 14, 2012
Mine won't work either, so it must be the site at the moment.
