Review quote

"There's something for everyone . . . from crowd-pleasing Zucchini Pancakes to elegant Risotto Rosso. And isn't it heartwarming that something as ephemeral as a blog, about something as transient as food, might be just good enough to make it to your permanent bookshelf? Take a bow, home cooks." -- NPR One of 2011's Best Cookbooks -- NPR One of the Top 10 Cookbooks of 2011: "A testament to crowd-sourcing, to accomplished cooks who don't necessarily blog, and to Food52.com's smart curating." -- Washington Post
