The Food52 Cookbook

140 Winning Recipes From Exceptional Home Cooks


From the publisher

The Food 52 Cookbook is the first-ever online community cookbook, based on the popular Food52.com website run by bestselling author Amanda Hesser and food writer Merrill Stubbs.

Hesser and Stubbs had a mission: to discover and celebrate the best home cooks in the country. Each week for 52 weeks, they ran recipe contests on their website, and the 140 winning recipes make up their book. They include Double Chocolate Espresso Cookies, Lamb Burgers with Cilantro Yogurt, Secret Ingredient Beef Stew, Simple Summer Peach Cake, Wishbone Roast Chicken with Herb Butter, and Strawberries with Lavender Biscuits.

These recipes prove that great home cooking doesn’t have to be complicated or precious to be memorable. The Food 52 Cookbook features the editors’ thoughts and tips on every recipe, plus behind-the-scenes photos, reader comments, and portraits of the contributors. It puts you right in the kitchen with America’s most talented cooks.
