Company Summary

We're building a comprehensive food and lifestyle company. Our community drives all of our content production, and we've created systems to curate in a scalable way to create a uniquely useful site, apps and books. We cover everything from recipes, techniques and tips, to Q&A, to shopping. Consumers who are passionate about food are faced with diffuse offerings and no hub to serve all of their food and cooking interests. Food52 is that hub.
