Food52 is a leading innovator in the food, cooking and home space with a monthly reach of more than 16 million people. From the beginning, co-founders Amanda Hesser and Merrill Stubbs have disrupted the status quo, building a 360-degree hub combining content, commerce and community around the belief that good food is at the center of a happy life.

Food52 inspires people to eat thoughtfully and live joyfully by discovering great recipes, stories, and ideas for its community of cooks and home enthusiasts, and by curating the best tools, tableware and home goods.

Food52 has been named the best food website by the James Beard Foundation and IACP, one of the “hottest voices on the Internet”​ by AdWeek and, repeatedly, one of the fastest-growing private companies in America by Inc. and one of New York’s fastest-growing companies by Crain’s.

The brand recently launched Five Two, its first-ever direct-to-consumer line of products for kitchen, home and life created exclusively with the Food52 community. With Five Two, Food52 is on a mission to reimagine every room in the house — and remake everything in it.


Products & Services

On Food52 you can find thousands of recipes submitted by our community and cooked by our editors in our very own test kitchens. Our recipes and articles are James Beard Award winning, our cookbooks are New York Times bestsellers, our Instagram is loved and followed by millions, and our community has grown to over 13 million people.

In 2013 we launched our shop to bring like-minded makers and artisans together with all of us. Today we curate the great things that allow you to cook and eat thoughtfully, and we’ve grown to include the home goods and crafts that support joyful living—and we’ve even started making some of these products with you! Great food isn’t just about ingredients, it’s about everything that makes a meal—it’s the platter you serve tacos on; the composter in your kitchen; the knife you take on picnics. And joyful living goes beyond just the kitchen; it’s the beeswax candles on your table, the wreath on your doorway, the linen throw that accents your couch.

We envision Food52 as the one place you can see thousands of test kitchen-approvedrecipes, shop the kitchenware you need to make them, and discuss the results with like-minded people. That same destination can be the go to when you need a birthday gift for a food-obsessed friend. The place to look for great table linens. The place to window-shop and daydream. We depend on—and we look forward to—your ideas, feedback, and support. So get ready for some inspiration and come hang out!

We look forward to cooking with you!
