Halloween is gone, and that means that the winter holidays are fast approaching. Here at Food52, we’re breaking out all our favorite cookie recipes, brushing up on our turkey knowledge, and, of course, thinking about all the holiday meals and treats to come. This year, we’ve decided to launch something a little bit different: a giant Community Cookbook, made by intrepid Food52 fans.
That’s right! We’re bringing the annual Food52 Holiday Swap to more users than ever before—to the entire Food52 community. Rather than pairing community members as we have in the past, we’re allowing you to “swap” your recipe with our millions of readers. And if you participate, you’ll unlock access to Food52’s 2022 Holiday Community Cookbook recipe roundup on our site.
From Our Shop
Wondering how to join? All you need to do is submit your favorite holiday recipe on our site with a photo, and then shoot a quick video. Share it using the hashtag #Food52Holiday across Instagram, TikTok, and YouTube. Personal stories are encouraged! We want to hear all about your grandma’s dinner rolls, your secret to the best-ever green beans, your best friend’s holiday tamales, and all the other special dishes that you always have on the table. Submit as many recipes as you’d like, and browse through all the others that Food52-ers have whipped up. There’s no limit to the number that you can add—so keep those pies, casseroles, salads, and cranberry sauces coming.
Starting November 7th, simply post your recipe with a photo on Food52 and tag it with the hashtag on social media. Over the coming weeks, our team will look through all of the submissions and post our favorites on social media all season long (we’ll even make some of them too!). And as a special thank you to our participants, the Food52 Holiday Swap will culminate in a digital ‘Community Cookbook’ destination on-site that houses all of the 2022 Holiday Swap recipes, and will feature a video bringing together highlights from our community’s most thoughtful and inspiring videos.
We can’t wait to see all the wonderful things you make for your holiday season!
