After working a community-focused website for over a decade (RIP Brooklyn Based mostly), it’s taken me a while to discover a position the place I actually really feel at dwelling—till now. I’m past thrilled to be Food52’s first Group Editor, and I hope to be assembly as lots of you Food52ers as attainable in individual and nearly over the following few months.
One of many issues I like about Food52 is how dynamic it’s; there are such a lot of nooks and crannies of our group to dig into. Our recipes, after all, are sensible and huge, and develop every day not simply from our common contributors and Residents, but in addition from members who contribute recipes to our website. I do know I’m not the one one who appreciates our movies: Simply check out the feedback on Lucas Sin’s tutorials (“I am unable to consider I get to look at these movies at no cost!”) or Erin McDowell’s grasp courses on all issues baking (“I’ve been on a mission to make a very good crust for years and you’ve got helped crack the code.”) And our Instagram and TikTok are a few of the most pleasant rabbit holes to fall into, partly due to the hilarious feedback you publish. (The thread on the April Idiot’s “Cooked Water” publish is priceless: “For these asking if retailer purchased is okay—belief me, it tastes loads higher once you make it from scratch.”)
I additionally don’t know every other model that develops merchandise (hey, 5 Two!) with enter from its group. Or one crammed with so many inventive, completed cooks who’re additionally so useful to at least one one other within the Hotline.
However we acknowledge that every one the items of our group pie will work higher when somebody is on the prepared to assist discipline questions and handle issues. Going ahead, you will notice me chiming in recurrently on the Hotline and in feedback, planning and becoming a member of you at occasions in our new beautiful area within the Brooklyn Navy Yard, bringing again—and bettering upon—beloved applications just like the Vacation Swap, and introducing new collection that we’re nonetheless cooking up.
At the start, I’m right here to take heed to you. You probably have an thought for bringing the group nearer, a suggestion for methods to enhance applications like Hotline or our recipe contests, or simply to say hey, please attain out to me at [email protected]. I’d love to listen to from you!
