Food 52

I just added Food 52 to my blog roll.  I met with the founders of this site this past week.   I really like what they are doing. 

Food 52 is essentially a community of home cooks.  You can submit your recipes or just comment.  There are weekly contests for the recipe of the week which is becoming a cookbook.  What I like more than anything is that Amanda and Merrill ( who is the smarts behind this site ) curate everything.  They actually pick from the recipes that are submitted and make them.  So the site isn't noisy.  It is clean and precise.  It is a bottom-up approach.  Super smart.

Both Amanda and Merrill love food, are writers and get the new media world.  There is also a shop on the site which only gives you the best of the best.  A great tool. 

Worth a daily check in.  And if you are so inclined, submit a recipe or two.
