18 Easy-but-Extraordinary Ways to Practice Self-Care During the Holidays

Food52 is not your typical office anytime of year (unless you consider perfectly art-directed bookshelves and show-stopping layer cakes coming out of the test kitchen typical), and that goes double for the holidays. We’ve got trees a-twinkling and carols on repeat as early as October. Here’s what we’re up to right now.

In our world, this time of year has a lot going on. There’s the cooking, the baking, the feasting in our homes. (We love that part the most!) There’s the gift-snagging and holiday-swapping and traveling to see family and friends. And at the office, there’s the planning and launching, the recipe-testing and article-writing, the overall magic-making at Food52 HQ.
