Screw you, 4th graders. September isn't about new backpacks and brown bag lunches, it's about new TV shows that aim to capture our hearts and minds. Instead of dealing with the inevitable letdown of the new fall season, I decided to reimagine the shows in a way that will make them truly successful: with food.
This past Monday in New York City, seven A-list chefs came together to cook at Hearth, in a benefit for A Life Story Foundation, a charity dedicated to the fight against ALS. Unlike the recent Ice Bucket Challenge, this good cause centered around a seven-course menu prepped by Hearth's Marco Canora, Gramercy Tavern's Michael Anthony, Michael Symon, Bill Telepan, Jonathan Benno (Lincoln), and the great pastry chefs Claudia Fleming and Karen Demasco. Check out photos and the menu.
Earlier this year, we held the third annual Food Republic Interview Lounge at the W Austin during the Austin Food & Wine Festival. Ever since, we've been featuring video excerpts of the sessions with host Richard Martin. Next up is Justin Yu of Oxheart in Houston, Texas.
When your life revolves around cured meat it's only a matter of time before you open a shop dedicated to the king of this food, bacon. So, it's no surprise chef and charcuterie maestro Justin Brunson of Denver's Masterpiece Delis and the award-winning restaurant Old Major decided to open up the Denver Bacon Company in February 2013. The result is a product not only delicious, but something Brunson is incredibly proud of.
Our Recipes section is a force to be reckoned with. We have about 50 recipes for awesome pasta alone, plus a homemade garlic bread recipe that will just RUIN your diet (but make your day!) Here are some recent favorites we can't stop cooking.
This new cookbook out of Japan is awesome while also being equally gross (and more than likely a joke). Not even the most enthusiastic safe sex advocate is going to stuff sushi fixins into a poor defenseless rubber and present it to their love — that is the opposite of the customarily romantic gesture of a home-cooked meal. See for yourself.

At the recent Feast Portland, we asked a number of chefs about what it means to cook “ethnic” food in America today. Their backgrounds range from running a high-minded Japanese izakaya to explorations in Argentinian, Thai, Indian and Israeli flavors.
It had to happen eventually: Alice Waters, the West Coast's poster gal for eating seasonally and locally, will grace New York's similar-minded region this weekend when she cuts the ribbon at the brand new Empire Farm in the Hudson Valley. The ceremony is slated to take place at 4:30 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 27, as part of the Hudson Valley Food Lovers Festival benefitting Farm On! Foundation, with Waters helping roll out the new educational facility. If you're in the New York City area and looking for a fun food event, this should be the ticket.
