The Food 52 cookbook club


Food52 has become the go-to source for all things food and cooking. Their website contains thousands of recipes, competitions, a home goods shop, plus they are cookbook creators themselves! Monthly selections are voted on by members through their Facebook group. Two books are offered monthly: a monthly main selection and a secondary annual “Bonus Book” for members to cook through all year long. Bonus book selections have tended toward the seasonal (2018’s book is Six Seasons by Joshua McFadden, 2019’s book is Sunday Suppers at Lucques by Suzanne Goin and Teri Gelber).

To participate: Join the Facebook group and post comments and photos there. Also post to Instagram using hashtag #f52cookbookclub.
