Recipe Testing Update: Your Best Leafy Greens

January 31, 2014

The submissions are closed for the Your Best Dark, Leafy Greens contest, and we're pretty amazed by all you've done with kale, collards, and everything in between.  

Leafy Green Recipes on Food52

As far as recipe testing goes, we're doing things a little bit differently this time around: Our friends over at goop will be testing the recipes from this contest (which means you all get a few weeks off -- now go take a vacation!). We'll still have a new batch of recipes for you to try in two weeks' time, and two finalists for you to vote on, too.

More: See all the contest submissions here.

We'll also be picking Wildcards from your submissions, so that we can feature even more of our community's amazing recipes. And we can't wait to see the recipes that the goop team chooses -- stay tuned!

Food52 (we cook 52 weeks a year, get it?) is a food and home brand, here to help you eat thoughtfully and live joyfully.

Interesting variation for the testing process, although it's become such an ingrained habit checking for recipes to test. Are the GOOP folks going to exclusively pick and test the CPs? Or is it going to be a collaborative effort with the F52 team?

We'll be testing the finalists and CPs as well, to put our heads together with goop -- then we'll also be finding extra Wildcards from this contest on our own. Thanks for your feedback and for always being game for a twist, everyone.

When will the next contest theme be announced? ;o)

On Monday!

Will you or goop be posting which recipes have been selected as the CP candidates?
Marian B. January 31, 2014
We'll be posting the final Community Picks that goop chooses, along with the finalists -- stay tuned!

I hope this doesn't become a trend here at Food52 -- sidelining the community for the sake of cross promotion? :-(

We understand your concern -- we'll be back to business as normal for our next contest! Since this was a collaboration with goop, we wanted them to be included in the testing process. But, as we mentioned in this post, we'll still be featuring a number of recipes from this contest as finalists, Community Picks, and Wildcards. And if you'd like to try any of the submissions, we'd love to hear your feedback in the comments!
