Expensive Food52 Neighborhood,
I at all times love the start of the yr at Food52 as a result of it means we’ve survived the mad vacation crush, and might now dream up new concepts and get going on them!
A number of such concepts which might be in movement:
- Every month, we’ll be leaning into one subject and providing you with all the things it’s worthwhile to discover by yourself—whether or not that’s by way of recipes, methods, tradition tales, cookware, or how-to movies. February’s subject? Soup. Plus, do not miss our January information devoted to all issues baking.
- We posted a task for a Neighborhood Editor, devoted to all of you, who will likely be working our recipe contests, heading up our Vacation Swap, collaborating with you on our 5 Two merchandise, and way more. Know somebody nice? Ship ‘em our approach.
- We’re heads down planning the subsequent assortment of Dansk merchandise, which is able to debut in November (we hope). Trace: includes forged iron and candles.
A follow-up from my final be aware:
I requested you for ebike suggestions and needed to report again in your high two picks – in case you, too, are available in the market for one.
- Gazelle Bikes | Justine mentioned: “It’s a superb metropolis commuting bike. It’s so easy and comfy that even in horrible climate, I nonetheless discover myself selecting to bike!”
What I am studying and listening to:
- Essays One by Lydia Davis, which is all about writing. I’ve spent a lot of my profession as a author, however have by no means learn a guide on writing. Whoops!
Product our group is obsessive about:
Scyavuru’s Sicilian Salty Pistachio Unfold (cue the ricotta toast). Seb, our purchaser who discovered it, makes use of it to make a pistachio cappuccino!
I didn’t make any resolutions for 2023, so I’m maintaining a metaphor firmly in thoughts.
Over the vacations, we drove Route 1 from Santa Barbara to San Francisco throughout the first atmospheric river in California’s current collection. At one level within the journey, this massive tree had simply fallen throughout the street. As we slowed to a cease, a person hopped out of the white pickup truck in entrance of us, dug round within the again, and emerged with a chainsaw. Then this Good Samaritan went and reduce off sufficient branches for our two automobiles to cross. There have been a lot of timber within the street these previous few years—let’s use what instruments we’ve obtained to clear paths for one another and transfer ahead.
Did I point out I’ll be writing you extra typically? See you once more in 2 weeks!
Yours, in path clearing,
