Food52, the crowd-sourced recipe site that almost took down Cook’s Illustrated, has just launched FoodPickle, a tool that takes the site’s belief in the dominance of the culinary hive mind and packages it down to Twitter-sized bites. Send your question to @FoodPickle and the Food52 community will leap into action with surprising agility: A request this morning for a vegan egg-wash substitute to go on a challah landed three different ideas within an hour of going live. (Maple syrup? That sounds amazing.) If you find yourself stuck on one of our How Do You Make That? recipes, this could be your ticket to salvation. [FoodPickle/Food52]
