This book collects contest winners from each week of one year on Food52 – which means that all of these recipes can be found, for free, on the website. That’s not necessarily a disqualifier in a cookbook, even if it means fewer sales; it’s nice to have them all together in one attractive package, each recipe followed by comments from Food52 readers. The testing, though, was something of a mixed bag; stunners rubbing shoulders with some fairly ordinary entries.
