We started our week off just exactly right: with 31 different preparations of coffee. Once that buzz wore off (nope, still there), we dove into the secret car-related vices of some of our favorite chefs and watched two seasons of Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown on Netflix without stopping. Okay fine, we stopped for bag wine, which is nowhere near as preposterous as it sounds.

From the kitchen: classic cacio e pepe, brand-new hummus and world-famous fried chicken. This week's most popular stories are waiting for you, below.
