Okay, I know that every change requires more demands on your engineering and design staff, but here is a suggestion that would greatly improve the site . . . . by providing a lot of useful information to those of us who are -- some of us, virtually every day -- trying out recipes posted on Food52. How about a place on the site where users could (anonymously, if they wanted) state whether they had actually tried out a recipe, and how they liked it (a separate star system for use by test drivers only), You'd also have a comments field for each rating entry so people could state what they did differently, what they liked or didn't like about the method or the results, etc. I find that the most useful comments posted about recipes are often the ones by the people who have tried them. As someone who has experienced some real disappointments with some of the non-finalist recipes (including editors' picks), this feature would provide invaluable information. It would also be fun to see what the community is actually making, in addition to which recipes its members are viewing. Thank you. ;o)
Thank you so much for this excellent suggestion. It's definitely on our minds and on our priority list, but may take a little time to implement (as you noted). So please hang in there and we'll figure out something soon.

I like the changes very much! I never could understand how the star system worked.

I love the new features. The site just keeps getting better and better!
Thank you -- and please let us know if there are features you wish we had.

Glad you mentioned the "thumbs up/thumbs down". Slow folks like myself only noticed the symbols a week or so ago...

I hope nobody uses the "down" signal as in "Gladiator". I also hope that we all still have opposable thumbs.
See what other Food52 readers are saying.
