While compiling “The Essential New York Times Cookbook: Classic Recipes for a New Century,’’ Hesser (above, left), then a Times food writer, partnered with Stubbs, a longtime food writer and graduate of Le Cordon Bleu in London. As their friendship developed over the next seven years, the pair decided to launch their own website, Food52.com, allowing readers to submit recipes and vote in weekly showdowns. After a year of contests, Hesser and Stubbs just released a compilation of the site’s champions, “The Food52 Cookbook: 140 Winning Recipes from Exceptional Home Cooks.’’ A second book is already in the works.
