Hi friends! Things are happening! The first Food52 Cookbook is out! I've got two recipes in this beaut- my Olive all'Ascolana and Griddled Polenta Cakes. So much fun!
And that's not all! Amanda Hesser will be in Austin Monday, November 14th to celebrate the launch of the book with a potluck at Boggy Creek Farm! Tickets are $25, but a ticket gets you a Food52 Cookbook as well as admission (retail price $35), so it's like you're being paid to be there! Sort of!
Celebrities abound! In addition to the lovely Amanda Hesser, you can meet the talented Austinites behind these award-winning recipes:
My sister, Helen! These are her Devils on Hatchback, one of my very very favorite foods. She has two recipes in the book also! Her delightful Figgy Pudding Butter Cookies, and deliciously inventive Feta Frozen Yogurt with Blood Orange and Mint Granita!
Our friend, Abbie! This girl can cook!! These are her amazing Barbacoa Beef Cheek Tacos. One of the many, many delicious treats Abbie is known for. Her jams and chutneys are swoon-worthy.
Abbie's husband, Leo! His mashed potatoes are the bee's knees. So is Leo!
Our sweet friend, Nancy! This is her outstanding Heirloom Tomato and Lemon Mascarpone Tart. She also makes a fantastic chocolate cake!
Our friend, Elizabeth! This is her beautiful Warm Custard Spoon Bread, which will be showcased in the second Food52 Cookbook, due out this spring!
I hope to see you guys at the potluck! I'll have a fat baby with me!
