What would the world do without cheese, corn flakes, popsicles, and chocolate chip cookies?

We love strawberries and their incredible versatility, especially when they’re in season.  Bon Appétit delineates the many varieties.

New research might make asparagus the new superfood. According to NPR’s The Salt, a compound in asparagus lowered blood pressure in rats. Time to change your dinner plans? Read More

I can’t begin to describe how much of a good time I had at this year’s inaugural Austin Food & Wine Festival. The awesome food, music, and Texas characters were great to be a part of. One of my favorite aspects was also seeing Food Republic there in their W Austin test kitchen and interview lounge. They caught up with some of my good friends, like Andrew Zimmern and Tim Love.

I even sat down with Tim for an extended talk about BBQ, food cultures, and traditions in our restaurants. Check out the video of our interview below and for more Austin Food & Wine Festival coverage, check out Food Republic here. Read More
