August is a perfect month for ice cream!

ALCHEMISTS

A few years back it was still reserved for a few avant-garde gourmets; today it's gaining momentum as a major culinary trend. If you're not sure what the buzz is all about, read our molecular gastronomy guide to learn about foams made with liquid nitrogen, and make reservations at one of the Top 10 Molecular Gastronomy Restaurants in the U.S.

MAD MEN

There are foams in cocktails, too! Bartenders around the country are toying with cucumbers, fennel, ginger, apples and must-have liqueurs like St. Germain to make fantastic new drinks. We checked in with mix masters from coast to coast to bring you their hottest creations like The Last Tango in Modena. Check out our Top 10 Cocktails in the U.S. for recipes!

COLD THRILLS

If your taste buds lean towards more basic creations—or if you just want to cool down this summer, be sure to check out our list of top ice cream parlors near you, and if you're in Los Angeles, San Francisco and New York, you can find the best fro-yo (frozen yogurt, for those not familiar with the parlance).

FOOD FOR LESS

Despite all this haute dining out we're doing, we're not above saving a dollar or two. Poor Girl Gourmet, a new cookbook on the scene, shows you how to make yummy dishes while saving at the check-out. And if you're looking for some great recipes that are low in calories but high in flavor, read our reviews of The French Women Don't Get Fat Cookbook by best-selling author Mireille Guiliano and Substitute Yourself Skinny by the "Bikini Chef" Susan Irby.

HEAD OVER HEALTH

Sometimes we eat to satisfy our palate; other times we eat for health. Bell peppers, it turns out, are super good for you, as are the following ten foods on our list of Top 10 Superfoods. After all, one cannot live on foie gras alone. Be sure to visit our health section for other foods that do the body good.

We have more for you on our site, such as the latest restaurant news, culinary events, food ratings, and food & wine pairings.

SOCIAL MEDIA

Also, be sure to get to know our blog! And, we want to hear from you. Post a comment on our forum, or review a restaurant or hotel on our site for our millions of visitors to read.
