Editors' Picks -- Week 48

May 20, 2010


Any food52 member is welcome to help us test our Editors' Pick candidates, so go call dibs on the recipe you'd like to test in the comments section below! We'd love to see some new testers in the mix. Don't forget to email us your notes (about 100 words) to [email protected] by next Tuesday at 5pm.

We'll collect your comments, decide the official list of Editors' Picks and publish your evaluation in the headnote if the recipe is selected as an Editors' Pick (with credit, of course!). And even if the recipe you test isn't chosen as an Editors' Pick, please feel free to leave your testing notes in the recipe's comments section. Constructive criticism is always encouraged!

    • Editors' Picks (these are the ones we've tested -- congratulations!)



    • Editors' Pick Candidates (these are the ones we want you to test)

We've also added some incentives to reward your hard work and make things interesting. The three people who test the most Editors' Picks candidates by June 1, 2010 will be entered in a drawing to win one of these fabulous prizes:

I'm putting Za'atar on everything these days, so I'll take the za'atar salmon and eggplant, please!
Food52 May 21, 2010
Thanks to everyone who has offered to do double testing. We'll give new folks till the end of the day to claim recipes -- otherwise they're all yours!

The "reply to this" features on the editor's comment about more dishes in need of testing seems to be malfunctioning -- at least with my connection -- so I am responding here.

Black beans and salmon are two of my 9-year-old's favorite things so I can test the Grilled Salmon with Black Beans in addition to the salmon cakes.
monkeymom May 21, 2010
I'd like to try Triple Citrus Caesar please. Congrats to the Editor picks as well, they look great!
dymnyno May 21, 2010
AntoniaJames, I will test Caesar and the Goddess if you want to try something else?
AntoniaJames May 21, 2010
Okay, great. I'll make the Chicken Caesar Salad with Anchovy-Caesar Vinaigrette etc. ;o)
Food52 May 21, 2010
UPDATE: The following 6 recipes are still up for grabs: Lemon Cream Roast Salmon with Whipped Parsnips; Grilled Salmon with Black Beans; Za'atar Scented Salmon and Eggplant; Triple Citrus Caesar; Chicken Caesar Salad with Anchovy-Caesar Vinaigrette and Garlic-Parmesan Croutons; Pseudo-Psaesar Salad with Avocado and Herbs

AntoniaJames May 21, 2010
I'd be happy to test any of these, if someone else would like to try Caesar and the Goddess . . . or, I'd gladly test both. ;o)
MrsWheelbarrow May 21, 2010
I'm planning to make salmon this weekend, so can certainly make the Lemon Cream Roast Salmon, in addition to testing the Classic Caesar.
fiveandspice May 21, 2010
I'd be happy to test the pseudo psaesar salad in addition to the wasabi salmon.

I'd love to test the Grilled Salmon with Black Beans - it is already in my saved recipe file!
dymnyno May 20, 2010
What is left? I will be glad to test anything...they all sound delicious!
heidi44 May 20, 2010
Thanks for all of these. Any of these would be new food adventure in my new city, SF, so I am ready to experiment. Don't mind the hard work because it usually results in new tasty pleasure!
fiveandspice May 20, 2010
Oooh! Salmon with wasabi creme fraiche for me, please!

Food52 May 20, 2010
Kaitlyn, it looks like that recipe has already been claimed (for now we're still sticking with 1 official tester per recipe), but please feel free to leave your notes in the recipe's comments section if you end up trying it. Is there another recipe you'd like to test?
