Since we started Food52 (we cook 52 weeks a year, get it?), millions of cooks and eaters have found their way to the site.We promise you’ll find hundreds of beautiful, one-of-a-kind products for your home—all from a dedicated team who curates only the very best.So go on, treat yourself! We can tell this is the start of a beautiful friendship. We love spending time in the kitchen, and we believe that memorable cooking doesn’t have to be complicated or precious. It’s about discovering that frying an egg in olive oil over high heat gives the white a great crackly texture, that slashing the legs of a chicken before roasting allows the dark and white meat to cook evenly, that maple syrup adds not only sweetness but depth to an otherwise ho-hum vinaigrette. Many cooking sites take a top-down approach, telling you what to cook and failing to give you a sense of the people and creative process behind the recipes. We don’t want to be yet another site that insists on dumbing down recipes to make them “quick” and “easy”—so we won’t. Watch our story and enjoy ..
