For the past 48 weeks, Food52.com readers have been voting in weekly showdowns of reader-submitted recipes on a given theme. The winning recipes of each week will end up in Food52's upcoming cookbook, along with bios of the people who submitted them (Food52 explains the process in simple detail here).
This week, Food52 and its co-founders Amanda Hesser and Merrill Stubbs have invited you, fun-loving HuffPost Food readers, to vote on Week 49's finalists.
Week 49's two showdowns are for the best french toast and minestrone/soupe au pistou recipes.
Check the finalists out below, and vote for your favorite in both categories here.
