How exciting! The Food52 cookbook is now available. I’m so proud to be a part of this great group of home cooks and pleased as punch that two of my recipes are featured. I think the best companion in your holiday kitchen would be this cookbook, so I’m giving one away. I just have to share the love.
Food52 is an amazing recipe site, and represents a generous, funny, warm community of cooks from around the world. Even more amazing is the group of local cooks who have come into my life because of this site. Six times now the group has come together for the most awesome potlucks I’ve ever attended.
We gathered last week to celebrate the publication of the cookbook. Don’t we look like we just ate a great lunch? This is one talented group of cooks. While I shudder at the thought of most potlucks, the anticipation of a Food52 DC Potluck makes my mouth water. At the party, all the DC Food52 cooks (in attendance) autographed the cookbook.
We’re entering into the season of eating. I’m skipping Thanksgiving preparations and heading to an Inn but that doesn’t keep me from dreaming. Here are a handful of fantastic recipes from Food52 that would be a great addition to your Thanksgiving festivities.
Sweet Potato Gratin – I made this for the potluck and it was DIVINE.
Shaved Brussel Sprouts Salad – This is lunch several times a week, now that brussel sprouts are in season.
Ciabatta Stuffing with Chorizo – While amazing with your turkey, the next morning, you will eat happy with the addition of a poached egg.
Grilled Brussel Sprouts – I am officially obsessed with this recipe.
Rustic Cauliflower Bake – SO freaking delicious. Retro-y great casserole side dish for your holiday table.
Ginger Molasses Pumpkin Bread – So quick and simple and all the ingredients are likely to be in your kitchen. Try a slice toasted.
Just leave a comment and tell me about your favorite Food52 recipe(s.) Thursday morning, one week before Thanksgiving, I’ll select one commenter using Randomizer on Thursday. Just check back to see if you’ve won, get me your address and I’ll pack up the book, plus a treat from my pantry, and you’ll have it in time for Thanksgiving. Good luck!
