I am pleased and honoured to share with my readers that my recipe for Borani Esfanaaj won the Food52 competition for ‘Your Best Spinach Recipe’ this week and will be published in a crowdsourced cookbook entitled ‘Food52′ by HarperStudio. (Here is my recipe and the story of inspiration behind it, on my blog).
Food52 is an innovative project created by Amanda Hesser, ex-Food Editor of the New York Times Magazine and Merrill Stubbs, a freelance food writer and recipe tester. For 52 weeks, homecooks submit recipes to Food52, under a specific theme. Amanda and Merrill vet and select the best two each week, presenting these back to the Food52 community, who then vote on which one will make it into the cookbook. At the end of a year the winning recipes will be compiled in a book.
Many thanks to all the lovely Food52 community homecooks and to Amanda and Merrill. Here’s raising a glass to all homecooks and the founders of Food52! Jennifer Ann won the ‘wildcard’ this week, she is an ace cook, you can see her ‘Couscous with Roasted Fennel and Toasted Almonds’ recipe here.
