With Greek Orthodox Easter set for this Sunday, we chatted with chef Charles Bowman of Periyali, the Flatiron restaurant that essentially invented fine Greek dining in New York City when it opened in 1987. Who was the chef way back then, you ask? Why, Charles Bowman, of course. With the experience of having professionally cooked 27 Greek Easter feasts under his belt, Bowman educated us on the day’s culinary traditions.
For those of us who are car geeks, the New York International Auto Show is like the Aspen Food and Wine Festival. The annual showcase for the automotive world kicks off this Friday and runs through April 27 at the Javits Center in Manhattan. As we're getting amped up to see the latest Audis, Benzes and Cadillacs, we asked 5 chefs from around the US to tell us about their current rides, their dream cars and the best food-related road trips they've ever taken. Check it out.
This morning we were conducting a little Bourdain-related research, because that’s how we do at Food Republic, and it came to our attention that ALL of the Season 1 and 2 episodes of Parts Unknown are currently streaming on Netflix. How did we miss this? Well, now you aren't.
If you're throwing an Easter shindig, the main event — ham, lamb or even hamb (think turducken) — is nothing without a table full of excellent sides.

“We don’t put on Pandora and let it play,” says Joe Campanaro. “The maître d looks around the room and gets a vibe.” And sometimes the maître d would look around the room and see rock royalty, which created a pretty unique vibe, as we find out.

Aziz Ansari’s love of food is well documented. He’s taken it to a new level, however, starring alongside fellow comedians Eric Wareheim and Jason Woliner in a new show titled Food Club. The first episode video, after the jump.
Music To Your Mouth has been one of the food and drink world’s best-kept secrets for the past seven years, with the festival held exclusively on the grounds of Palmetto Bluff, South Carolina. The event won’t remain a well-kept secret for much longer, though, as it is hosting one-off events in three other cities, starting with a dinner in Austin, Texas on April 24. Cooking will be none other than John Currence. We caught up with the chef to talk about music in the kitchen, the direction of Southern cooking and Ashley Christensen’s mac and cheese. Mmmm.
