This post originally appeared on May 11, 2019, in Amanda Kludt’s newsletter “From the Editor,” a roundup of the most vital news and stories in the food world each week. Read the archives and subscribe now.

I’m currently on a 6 a.m. flight en route to Santa Fe to consume enchiladas, burritos, and, if the mood strikes, edibles. And maybe stare at some Georgia O’Keeffe paintings and desert sunsets. I came this close to scheduling this four-day trip at the same time as a giant food world conference — which would have been fun but not the vacay I was looking for — so phew. But if you’re going to IACP next weekend, I can send you my fave spots. Or just read Eater’s Guide to the Southwest.

It seems like there were enough takes on sponsored menus and Aperol spritzes to go around this week, so we can just get right into it.

On The Podcast This Week

This week on the podcast, Daniel and I discussed the week’s biggest food stories, including the popularity of Impossible Burger and the IPO of its rival Beyond Meat, how thirsty food brands have been to partner with Game of Thrones, Burger King’s bizarre new campaign, some invasive restaurant plates, and more.
