We pride ourselves on being quite the jet-setters here at Food Republic. Just this week, we put together an infographic about hot dogs from all parts of the globe, wrote restaurant guides to Rome, Italy, and Houston, Texas, traveled with Anthony Bourdain to shoot Parts Unknown in Madagascar and heard from chef Leah Cohen about her noodle-oriented trip to Southeast Asia.

It’s almost grilling season! With Memorial Day weekend kicking off in just seven days, we have burgers and barbecue on our minds. So what are the best burger blends to use, and what’s the one essential ingredient for BBQ’ing at home? We took a look at what exactly counts as a “modern classic” cocktail, talked craft beer with one of NYC’s best-known brew advocates and checked out George Mendes’s new cervejaria.

Another James Beard Awards week has come and gone, and Monday night’s ceremonies in Chicago honored chefs and restaurants from around the United States. Here at Food Republic, we honored a few topics very near and dear to our hearts: the foods of Thailand (non-Thai in this case), a craft-beer bar explosion in Philly and, of course, a secret queso recipe we found at the hottest restaurant in NYC. We also debuted a new column aimed at highlighting hotels around the best food-focused hotels around the world. All that and more, on this week’s hot topics.

This afternoon we closed out a week in which Food Republic tucked in our collective cloth-napkin bib and went to town on all things Italian-American. As Richard Martin wrote in his colorful introduction, Italian-American food has informed so many people in our country, from professional chefs to suburban families to foreign tourists visiting the country’s many Little Italys. This week we looked at the topic of Italian food in America from many perspectives. Here are the stories.

It was a big week for booze here at Food Republic. Our own Jeffrey Morgenthaler disagreed with cocktail authority David Wondrichs column criticizing the revival of crappy drinks and penned a thoughtful rebuttal. We also learned about California wine, the rise of Maryland craft beer and spirits, and how bourbon pairs terrifically with ham. Who knew? To cap it all off, we uncovered some secrets to mixing the perfect Irish coffee, ideal for blustery winter days just like this one. All that and more on this weeks edition of Hot Topics on Food Republic.

    It’s not uncommon for us to talk about incredibly good things to eat and drink. It’s kind of the point of us editors waking up in the morning, taking the subway to the office and punching in at Food Republic HQ. But for some reason, we decided to step up our game this week. We published a recipe for fried Oaxacan cheese sticks and profiled the man behind Benton’s bacon, which might be our favorite bacon ever. We also spolighted what might be our favorite charcuterie plate around — the work of Charleston, South Carolina, chef Craig Deihl. Fried cheese and cured meat. Not such a bad combo.

One of them was even nominated this week as a semifinalist for James Beard's annual Outstanding Restaurant award. We've got all the awards coverage here. All that, plus a lot more, in this week's Hot Topics.

    Tonka Beans, Cookies, Band Beers: 10 Hot Topics On Food Republic

    A few of our big stories of the week

    Let's start off with a bit of a mind-blowing fact: you can unboil an egg. It gets better: you can also have cheese on ALL your fries and not just the top layer. We invented that, not the egg-unboiling. None of us are even close to that smart, but give the FR team a problem like "there's only cheese on some of my alleged cheese fries" and we'll give it the attention it deserves. Fast casual culture, band brews and our brand-new YouTube channel on this week's 10 hot topics on Food Republic.
