The Science of Fat-Washing Cocktails

Just saw this now. Thanks so much for answering my question, Kevin!

Which is the Best Beer City?

San Francisco. Portland and San Diego both have better brewery scenes, but I'd argue that SF has better overall access to beers from across the country than Portland because there's better distribution to California. And while you can't go straight to the brewery as easily, San Francisco still has access to all the same beers as San Diego (and it's closer to Russian River). And, you know, San Diego's okay, but I'd way rather hang out in San Francisco.

Staff Picks: Our Go-To Drinks

An IPA or an American ESB (the style... usually it's a Canadian American ESB) or a rye old fashioned for me.

Behind the Scenes: Bar Boulud Shows Us Their Classic Coq Au Vin

re: torching I think it's to burn off any feathers/feather bits that are still on the bird.

We Eat all 11 Sandwiches at Paseo, in Seattle

The Carribean Roast is the finest sandwich I've ever had the pleasure of eating.

Must-Order Soup Dumplings and Wine Chicken at Long's Noodle House in Vancouver

@Jay I would say Au Petit Cafe is Vancouver's best Vietnamese overall, but for banh mi specifically, Tung Hing Bakery up on Kingsway has it beat.

What I Learned at the Great American Beer Festival: A Brewer's Perspective

Nice recap. GABF's been on my bucket list for awhile and I think next year might finally be the year.

As an aside, I was down in San Francisco in September and had a chance to try some of your beers--great stuff, man!

Poll: What Beer Do You Like to Drink With Your Pizza?

Sours are my favourite to pair with pizza (citrusy I/PAs next), but really, the answer is "whatever you've got"

The Serious Eats Guide to Ramen Styles

@Kenji does Ramen Week mean we'll get a Food Lab noodle recipe to go with the tonkatsu broth/chasu recipes?

Oh man, those halibut cheeks. Dang.

3 Good Drinks from Charles H. Baker's Jigger, Beaker, and Glass

The PDT book is amazing, but getting a lot of the ingredients is a pain/impossible. How about Jerry Thomas' How to Mix Drinks?

'Food & Wine' Readers' Picks: Best Burgers in the US

I'm from Vancouver, but head down to Seattle a handful of times a year and always grab a burger a Dick's, so I'm not quite local, but certainly kinda loyal. But, for a fast food style burger in a nation-wide chain, there's no way it beats In-N-Out or Shake Shack.

Dear Tim's Potato Chips: I Think I'm in Love

The jalapeno is awesome, but the old parmesan and garlic flavour was my favourite.

Tipsy Palmer: The Ultimate Summer Cocktail

@msl46 I was going to mention the John Daly thing as well and also note that when summer afternoons stretch particularly long, I sometimes double up the booze quotient and start calling it a "double bogey".

This Week at Serious Eats World Headquarters

My uncle swears that if you pop 4-5 seirogan before bed when you're drunk it mitigates your hangover.

This Is What Hippie Pizza Looks Like

The first photo is like Best Pizza's oh so wonderful pickled vegetable grandma slice... gone horribly, horribly wrong.

Our Favorite Beers at the Great American Beer Festival 2012

Out of curiousity, how many of the 2700 beers did you guys manage to try?

The Pizza Lab: How To Make Fried Pizza At Home (à la Forcella)

I made this last night. It was amazing. Until I live in a place that will let me build a wood fired oven in the backyard, this might be my new home pizza go-to.

Poll: Do Asian Flavors Belong on Pizza?

@django2004 I do almost the exact same thing.

Bartender's Choice: 8 Cocktails from The Franklin Mortgage & Investment Co., Philadelphia

Any bar that pays homage to Hot Snakes with their cocktails is a bar worth visiting.

Gimme Your Burger Lab Requests!

We can't get Martin's potato rolls on the West Coast and they won't ship to Canada. Any chance you could work up a recipe for them?

Win Pop Chart Lab's "Constitutions of Classic Cocktails" Poster

My sister got me a bottle of wormwood bitters for Christmas, so I've been experimenting with those.
