Well we sure had a busy week. We called out a Guy Fieri imposter, managed to bake beer, cheese AND bacon into bread, stuffed countless cubes of cheese into meatballs and many slices of pepperoni into rolls and still found time to track down our favorite vegan spots in New York. Does that even make sense? Believe it. We’re Food Republic and here are the week’s best stories.

Got any ideas for us to cover next week? Let us know in the comments below.
