2. A variety of fun and delicious recipes — be them Italian, Polish, Nigerian, Israeli, Korean, Colombian, Japanese…the more the merrier!
3. Cooks that would like to share their favorite recipes with their neighbors

Greenpointers is compiling a community cookbook and — friends, neighbors, home cooks — we need your recipes! Send them in to us by January 1, 2014 through this easy form. The book will be available to purchase by late spring 2014. More info to come as the date draws nearer.

A few things to note:
1. PLEASE make sure that you edit and proofread your recipe before submitting.
2. Credit the recipe if you’ve pulled it from a favorite magazine, website, book, or blog.
3. What are head notes? Please include 20-30 words about the recipe (e.g. why you love it; who taught you this recipe; a neighborhood restaurant that inspired this recipe; the main ingredient it features; or whatever else you fancy to say).

Thank you, and happy cooking!

About Libby V

Libby VanderPloeg lives and makes work in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. She grew up in Michigan on the edge of the Great Lakes dunes, and has lived in Chicago, New York, and Stockholm. Her work comes out of her deep affinity for storytelling, music, letterforms, printed ephemera, and wildlife. None of these works could have been made without the world's finest brioche and several good, strong cups of coffee.

    This sounds fantastic! I’ll see if my mom will give up some of her recipes.
