Classic Cocktails, Homemade Sausage, Cambodian Food: 10 Hot Topics On Food Republic

We were certainly thirsty this week at Food Republic. So thirsty, in fact, that we compiled our very own illustrated guide to making 30 classic cocktails and tried out each and every one of San Francisco's acclaimed Anchor Brewing Company's beers. We also investigated the steady rise of domestic sake. Looking for something with some buzz but no booze? We put together a feature on making cold-brew iced coffee...using a French press! Taking a step out of the drinking world, we wrote a piece on the many truths and many, many myths of the seafood industry and asked a butcher how to make sausage at home before heading to Italy's lush Langhe region for a scenic food adventure. All that and more on this week's Hot Topics on Food Republic.
