Discussing Food52 Cookbook Volume 2

Keywords: Food52Amanda HesserMerrill Stubbs

Amanda Hesser and Merrill Stubbs started with a concept to crowdsource a cookbook and along the way they built a large community of home cooks at their site, Food52. After the success of the first book one year ago, they immediately started over to make the second. And from that has come the new Food52 Cookbook Volume 2: Seasonal Recipes from Our Kitchens to Yours.

It’s a continuation of the purpose of Food52. As Stubbs says, “We were planning all along to have a volume two because it has to do with how we started Food52”. On what’s different, Hesser has a few observations, “You will notice its a slightly shorter book. We’ve kind of gotten our system down better and its like the book has kind of come together in a stronger way.” But like the first book, “it’s a snapshot in time of what people are obsessed with” in a given year.

Yet with this book they feel Food52 has evolved. Stubbs notes, “We started with really just one project and since the first book we’ve added layers onto the site... It’s in the same spirit, but the site has burgeoned.”
