The new Bon Appétit is taking shape. After many recent changes -- Barbara Fairchild stepping down, the magazine relocating to New York City, Adam Rapoport named editor-in-chief -- Christine Muhlke, most recently the food editor at the New York Times Magazine, is joining the staff as an executive editor. Anyone who reads The New York Times at all will be very familiar with Muhlke's work: her stories on farmers and chefs, prosciutto makers and bakers, teenage gardeners and, well, one could go on, are some of the very best out there.

Muhlke was reportedly on a short list of candidates for Rapoport's job. Joining her will be Meghan Sutherland (Teen Vogue), who Rapoport has named the magazine's deputy editor. No word yet on who will be replacing Muhlke at the Magazine. Maybe somebody can send Amanda Hesser a really big Christmas present.

    In Los Angeles especially, but increasingly across the country, restaurants are either switching to tasting menus, putting a greater focus on a tasting-menu option (while offering à la carte items as well), or opening as tasting-menu operations from day one. The format that used to be the calling card of only the fanciest of restaurants is becoming ubiquitous, even at places where the waiter calls you “dude” and there isn’t a white tablecloth in sight.
  • Milo's Kitchen: A Treat Truck for Dogs
    Milo's Kitchen, a part of California-based Big Heart Pet Brands, is taking its homestyle dog treats on the road this summer with the "Treat Truck." The dogified food truck is making stops all over the country, ending up in New York early September. The truck stopped at Redondo Beach Dog Park Friday morning entertaining the pups with treats, a photo-booth and play zone. Milo's Kitchen Treat Truck offered samples of the line's six flavors, all with chicken or beef as the first ingredient, and all made in the U.S.A. with no artificial colors or preservatives.
