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.

To cap it all off, we uncovered some secrets to mixing the perfect Irish coffee, ideal for blustery winter days just like this one.

    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.

    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.
