Food52 Cookbook {giveaway}

Food 52 cookbook
We love Food52, a really cool idea of getting together a community of cooks and sharing recipes, ideas, stories, and tips. They totally share their recipes with us here on TasteSpotting, too!

Last week, the James Beard Foundation awarded Food52 the Publication of the Year for Journalism (list of winners is on a link on their page), so we thought it would be a nice way to say “Congratulations!” to the Food52 community, Amanda, and Merrill (we’ve never met them in person, but hey this is the internet, we can call them by their first names, right?) by giving away a copy of the cookbook of recipes from their community!

So here it is.

(And yes, those are little yellow post-its in the book – you didn’t think we’d give this away without cooking a few recipes from it first, did you?!)

How to Enter this Giveaway

  1. Check out Food52′s recipes on TasteSpotting, then tell us which one is your favorite in comments section of this post! It doesn’t matter what you say, as this is a random drawing, but it does matter that you do comment with something.
  2. Make sure to enter your email address in the box provided so we can contact you
  3. Share this giveaway post with your friends on facebook and twitter! (not required, but we’d love the help!)

You have until Friday May 11, 2012 at 5 PM PST to comment. Everyone is welcome to comment to enter, but we can only ship this stuff in the U.S. (So if you’re outside the US and win, you just need to provide us with a US mailing address to send!)

Good luck!

Remember that we’re still giving away Patricia Wells’s cookbook, Salad as a Meal, so make sure to enter! And stay tuned for more giveaways throughout the next few weeks! Yes, we are giving away cookbooks as a way to “prime” you all for some bigger things coming up. Do not worry, you are always eligible to enter everything, and win more than once, too.

Creamy Mushroom Soup – delicious.

Yi May 9, 2012 at 7:53 am

Zucchnin Pancakes & Braided Farmhouse Whole Wheat bread with poppy seeds are my favorites ..they are the best

marla May 9, 2012 at 7:53 am

the ramp carbonara looks delicious!

Phoebe May 9, 2012 at 8:22 am

“Mmm. Another pretty cookbook,” I thought. Then, “Wait, SARDINE pate?!”

Okay, now I’m interested. :^)

Marie May 9, 2012 at 8:24 am

Matilda, Maple & Garlic Pork Shoulder with Crispy Skin. I’m a sucker for a big, deliciously tender, hunk of pork!

susan in taos May 9, 2012 at 8:28 am

I guess the Matilda pulled pork would be my favorite. I haven’t made it but will do in the coming weeks. Love pulled pork!

JV May 9, 2012 at 8:30 am

Le French Tuna Salad looks appetizing.

jjd May 9, 2012 at 8:39 am

It has to be those cheese biscuits.

For me, if I am going to eat bread or cheese, it has to be the real, yummy deal. And these look amazing and totally worth the effort!

christina May 9, 2012 at 8:56 am

Tuscan onions, maple olive oil granola,yam chickpea zucchini salad.. all look amazing !and I have toast, kale, & Sweet potatoes topped with an egg all the time.. so good :)

Kendra May 9, 2012 at 9:22 am

Strawberry Fennel Ice Cream sounds so refreshing.

Meg May 9, 2012 at 9:25 am

I’d go with the lemon ricotta spaghetti with arugula.

Marian T May 9, 2012 at 10:09 am

Baklava is one of the best things ever, love it – and macaroons are a definite weakness!!

Emma May 9, 2012 at 10:22 am

I love the idea of an olive oil granola!

Brandy May 9, 2012 at 10:25 am

I love cookbooks!

Kate A. May 9, 2012 at 11:16 am

Man, too hard to choose! But for the moment I’ll go with…Crispy Salt and Pepper French Toast, mostly because I really want to eat it right now :)

Steve May 9, 2012 at 11:22 am

Grilled Brussels Sprouts! I love all things grilled and I love Brussels Sprouts, so this recipe has to be a winner!

Suzanna May 9, 2012 at 11:34 am

The strawberry-fennel ice cream! What a delicious blend of flavors, and it’s my husband’s favorite!

Greg Sheppard May 9, 2012 at 12:03 pm

I really Liked the Grilled Brussels Sprouts with Bacon, Celery Salt, and Lemon Zest recipe. Brussel Sprouts are a special vegetable that is hard to get people to eat, jazzing it up with bacon, lemon and celery salt would just do the trick to make them taste wonderful

Vanessa May 9, 2012 at 12:08 pm

I love the Oaxacan Cinnamon Chocolate Macarons–because all french macarons are fantastic!

jacqueline May 9, 2012 at 12:15 pm

Dee Kitchen May 9, 2012 at 3:13 pm

Merguez and sweet potato hash, for sure. It’s like a fancy version of my favorite breakfast food: corned beef and hash. The only problem – where to buy merguez?

Lauren Grant May 9, 2012 at 4:09 pm

I absolutely love the recipe for Yogurt with Toasted Quinoa, Dates and Almonds. What a creative way to incorporate quinoa into a breakfast or snack! Love it

Lynna May 9, 2012 at 4:11 pm


Cass May 9, 2012 at 4:41 pm

Laura May 9, 2012 at 7:19 pm

I’m dying for it to be warm enough in Wisconsin for things to grow, for the farmers’ markets to come back and to get some sun on my cheeks. Can’t wait to buy ramps and scapes– the ramp carbonara sounds incredible!!

Jason Unterman May 9, 2012 at 7:34 pm
