Frozen Drinks Week, mayo, Austin, Philly, Orlando
Aug 15, 2014 4:00 pm

This week's big story: drink frozen beverages while the getting's good! We've got recipes, techniques, gear and more from the pros blending them up so that you can save money on air conditioning while also maintaining a solid buzz. Also this week, impressive dining in Orlando. But mostly, frozen drinks and the surprisingly impressive drinking culture that goes with it. 

Our 12 Most Popular Stories This Week

Vacay drinking, airport booze, IPAs, crabs, oysters
Aug 8, 2014 3:00 pm

It's official: any steaks hanging out in your fridge are unnecessarily thawed and taking up valuable space. In other news, airports are great places for drinking and obtaining high-end (sometimes very high-end) booze, Canadian snacks are a little weird, and melon is now jealous of avocado's affair with prosciutto. Ever had Indian Chinese food? It's fusion cuisine that makes orange chicken look like deep-fried nonsense. Hop on your motorcycle like a chef and enjoy this week's most popular stories.

NYC BBQ, blue crabs, summer beers, Tales festival
Jul 25, 2014 4:00 pm

Summer calls for blue crabs, beers and beasts. LA Beasts, that is, consuming a whole watermelon (also something summer calls for). Summer is also Tales of the Cocktail season, and we somehow have a report of what happened down in New Orleans! You don't so much write about Tales as drag your face across your computer and see what it types. Back in New York, we traveled around South Brooklyn and got as close to our fill of barbecue as exists. Enjoy this week's most popular stories!

Our 12 Most Popular Stories This Week

Nut butters, bitch pudding, shandies, lobster rolls
Jul 18, 2014 4:00 pm

What's up this week, Food Republic? Oh, nothing much, just a bunch of lobster rolls, foie gras sauce and poutine dressed to the nines (in Brooklyn? Really?) But that doesn't make us all fancy, we also traced the humble journeys of some of our favorite food trucks to "forever homes," learned about largely un-fancy but totally awesome nut butters and mixed up some great beer with lemonade. That's only allowed in the summer, you know. Check out this week's most popular stories.

Booze ads, coffee rankings, cider, Korean Dominos
Jun 20, 2014 4:00 pm

Fans of coffee, seltzer, booze commercials and gargantuan monster hybrid pizzas, rejoice! Fans of washing chicken before cooking it...stop. Just stop. We clearly learned a lot this week, like how olive oil makes gelato somehow even better. And how we should all learn how to hunt and cook squirrels, cause they're like, everywhere. Enjoy this week's most popular stories!

World Cup, poutine, wine pairings, Frito pie, feta
Jun 13, 2014 4:00 pm

World Cup fever is upon us! We have the players to look out for, the dishes to eat, where to watch the games, what to drink while you're watching them and most important: how to order in Portuguese. Well, maybe most important are the 9 things you never knew about poutine. Enjoy this week's most popular stories!

Our 12 Most Popular Stories This Week

Reservations, Father's Day, Cartagena, KISS, knorks
Jun 6, 2014 4:30 pm

Sure, you can get that near-impossible restaurant reservation...it's just going to cost you. If you'd rather skip that part, Cartagena, Colombia has some killer food trucks that won't set you back all that dough. Speaking of dough, KISS' rock-themed restaurant chain has pretty okay pizza (but that's not exactly why we went to visit). Drink right during the Stanley Cup finals, cut your food with a knork and more in this week's most popular stories.

Booze apps, summer plans, indoor gardens, tuna poke
May 30, 2014 4:00 pm

What are you looking forward to this summer? A bounty of food and music festivals, tomatoes and frat boy melons? You'll just have to see what we mean. We whipped up our new favorite warm weather cocktail (you'll need a juicer!) which incidentally goes perfectly with crispy grilled sausages, and perhaps most importantly, learned a few alternative methods to getting that charcoal nice and glowing. Enjoy this week's most popular stories!
