Ah, 2019. It was the year of the celery juice phenomenon, thirsty brands on Twitter, Game of Thrones food anachronisms, high profile restaurant divorces, and Impossible doing the, well... impossible. This year provided all sorts of fodder for our weekly stories segment, and to wrap it all up, we're dedicating an entire episode to the stories that defined 2019: the good, the bad, the ugly, and the downright ridiculous. We asked a bunch of our friends from the newsroom to join us in discussing their favorites, but just a quick disclaimer: we will NOT be discussing chicken sandwiches of any variety. Stories: Burger King Delivered Beef Whoppers to Customers Expecting "Impossible" Liquid Death's Canned Water Will Murder Your Thirst A Mysterious Gut Doctor is Begging Americans to Throw Out "This Vegetable" A Disposable Coffee Cup Made an Accidental Appearance on Game of Thrones Who is the Trump-Supporting Billionaire Funding Momofuku?

It feels like Christmas bars are taking over. These unabashedly kitschy, tinsel-and-ribbon adorned yuletide popups are slinging good cheer and plenty of booze all over the country, and we wanted to know why people love them so much. So we called up Beth McKibben of Eater Atlanta, where at least 12 different Christmas bars are attracting massive crowds, and Greg Boehm the founder of Miracle, the popup making it all happen. Then, we get into the biggest stories of the week, from McDonald's attempt at a new chicken sandwich, to how one entrepreneur is skirting Trump's tariffs on French wine, and how Edible Arrangements is getting in on the CBD craze.

Turns out, lots of chefs aren't as great at writing as they are at cooking. So how do they bring their culinary visions to the pages of a cookbook? With help from people like JJ Goode, who help them translate their stories and recipes for home cooks. JJ joined Amanda and Daniel in studio to talk about how he got into the world of cookbook ghostwriting, and why even as a self-proclaimed lazy cook, he still loves checking out wildly difficult recipes. Then, we get into the biggest stories of the week, from an super expensive strawberry, to an alt milk burn, and a definitive ranking of all the best iced coffee drinks out there.

Chances are, you've got a favorite grocery store. Whether it's the employees, the childhood nostalgia of a hometown market, or the unique products that make yours great, everyone seems to have that one grocery store they're obsessed with. Stores all over the country have built cult followings, and we wanted to know: what is it about the grocery store that we love so much? Jaya Saxena joins us to lay out her theory, and then we hear from Eater's editors about their favorite places across the country. Did yours make the list?

Hospital food has long been the worst of the captive audience cuisines, outpacing even airplane food in its terribleness. But it wasn't always this way. Preparing nourishing food for the sick was once a domestic art and an essential part of caring for the ill. We’ve fallen a long way, but now one hospital is making good food part of the treatment plan.  We talked to Eater New York Senior Critic Robert Sietsema about his recent hospital food experience, and Chef Michael Vetro from St. Jude Children’s Hospital about how he’s bringing home to the hospital by recreating family recipes for sick kids. Then, we get into the biggest stories of the week, from a new foie gras ban, to the New York Times’ brutal takedown of a legendary Brooklyn steakhouse and more.

Maria Sharapova, tennis legend, decorated Grand Slam champion and noted pal to a certain royal family, doesn’t believe in using her star power to score tables at super popular restaurants. That's because she's a true food lover who believes in the serendipity of waiting it out with the rest of us. Maria's found some of her favorite places after rubbing elbows with other gourmands at bars and communal tables around the globe, and she joined Amanda in studio to dish on her favorite restaurants worldwide and why she started Sugarpova, her candy company. We also get into the biggest food stories of the week, from the newest Michelin news to one chef's fiery exit from a famous department store and more.

Very rarely are dinner parties about the food on the table. Throughout the history of evening mealtime gatherings, hosting was never so much about feeding friends and family as it was about flaunting wealth. From the dinner tables of ancient Greece and Rome to Victorian England and suburban America, an underlying sense of class anxiety has motivated us to call our social circles to the table in an attempt not to display our skills in the kitchen, but rather our banquet halls, china patterns and dedicated dining rooms. Alison Roman is calling bullshit on all that. She’s been compared to Julia Child and Martha Stewart for her knack for empowering even the least experienced cooks to find joy in the kitchen, but this self-described “older millennial” cringes at the word “entertaining” where the domestic goddesses of yore leaned into it. Alison joined us in studio to talk about her new cookbook, Nothing Fancy (out October 22), and how she's redefining the art of the dinner party. We're also joined by Nisha Chittal, a Vox.com journalist, to talk about the history of entertaining at home, and why millennials are doing it differently than their parents. Then we get into the biggest food stories of the week, from Rachel Ray's new "ghost" restaurant, to the rise of the sushi bro and that viral Panera TikTok video. Stories: • Did Millennials Kill the Dinner Party? • Top Notch Sushi with a Side of Bro • Is Panera Making Sous Vide Mac & Cheese?

Pat Brown is on a mission to save the planet by cutting one thing from our lives: cheeseburgers. The Impossible Foods CEO is determined to cut the consumption of cows to save our planet from the devastating effects of big agriculture, but there's one thing standing in his way: Richard Berman, a powerful Washington lobbyist. He's a formidable opponent protected by a shadowy non-profit called the Center for Consumer Freedom, but Impossible isn't scared. In fact, they think Berman's involvement means the beef lobby is terrified for the future of their industry, and scrambling to save their buns. This week, Daniel hears from Brown and Rachel Konrad, Impossible's Chief of Communications, to find out more about the meat war. Then, we get into the biggest stories of the week, from the latest in stupid sexism to restaurant ripoffs and more.

The Impossible Foods CEO is determined to cut the consumption of cows to save our planet from the devastating effects of big agriculture, but there's one thing standing in his way: Richard Berman, a powerful Washington lobbyist.Berman, who served as the inspiration for Nick Naylor in Thank You For Smoking, has made a name for himself going to bat for special interest groups fighting losing battles to save their image. He's lobbied to protect things like cigarettes and high fructose corn syrup, and launched multifaceted attacks against M.A.D.D. (that's Mothers Against Drunk Driving) and the Humane Society. Berman's busted unionizing efforts and fought against raising the minimum wage, and now, he's got a new client in the beef lobby and a new target in meat substitutes.He's a formidable opponent protected by a shadowy non-profit called the Center for Consumer Freedom, but Impossible isn't scared.

Simon Kim has been a fighter all his life. From schoolyard fights in Seoul, South Korea to bar brawls in Long Island, his scrappiness was borne of a restlessness that plagued him until he found his calling: hospitality (ironically). After working his way up from a front desk agent at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas to the manager of a lavish restaurant there, Kim made a name for himself as the guy the whales, or uber high-stakes gamblers, wanted to see. Kim joined us in studio to trace his path from 7th grade earth science to opening two Michelin starred restaurants in just over a year, highlighting the hospitality lessons he's learned along the way. Then, we get into the biggest food stories of the week, from pop-up woes to boozy advent calendars, kids on iPads in restaurants and more. We've also got a survey out that'll help us make the Digest better and better. It takes no more than five minutes, and it really helps us out!

Anthony Bourdain once called St. John the "restaurant of his dreams." The London restaurant, which has long been considered the most influential in Britain and the origin of the modern nose-to-tail movement, is celebrating its 25th birthday this week with plans to open its first ever location outside of Britain's capital... in a Los Angeles mall. What does this mean for the restaurant's sterling legacy and L.A.'s growing food scene? Can a London hometown hero open in a Culver City development and still be cool? To find out, we called up Adam Coghlan, Eater's London editor who first broke the story, and Farley Elliot, Eater's Los Angeles editor. Then, we get into the biggest food stories of the week, from Nick Cage's foray into truffle hunting, to what's going on with weed cafés on the west coast (with the Washington Post's Maura Judkis) and what happened when Dan fell asleep in a library (we promise it relates to food!).Also!

How did popcorn become the standard theater snack instead of say, soup? From the nickelodeons of the Great Depression to the multiplexes of today, what we eat in front of the big screen has changed a lot. So Amanda and Daniel are headed to the theater to pull back the curtain on food at the movies and find out why indie theaters and legacy players alike are installing professional kitchens next to the popcorn machine.Then, we get into the biggest food stories of the week! We've got a look at an icky restaurant dress code, the latest in weird tech v. restaurant dynamics, and thoughts on a wacky new canned alcoholic beverage. Also!

A baby walks into a bar and the internet loses its mind. Why is that? To understand why some people truly cannot tolerate infants and young children in bars and restaurants, regardless of how well behaved they and their parents are, Amanda and Daniel talk to a few people who know a thing or two about babies in bars. First up, writer Kate Willsky lays out the do's and don'ts of grabbing a drink with your baby in tow, and explains why she as a new mom needs a damn cocktail every once in awhile. Then, filmmaker Alison Grasso gives us some historical context to the bar as a community space and Amanda's kids make their Digest debut at The Fly in conversation with restaurateur Nialls Fallon.Plus, we get into the wildest stories of the past couple weeks, from a rogue tomato in the East River, to the Uberfication of restaurant work and why a vegan woman in Australia is taking her neighbors to the supreme court.

With fall looming large around the corner, it’s time to bid farewell to summer and all the wonderful things that includes. But take heart in knowing that not all hope is lost. There’s plenty of good stuff on the horizon this fall, which, we’d argue, is the most exciting season for new restaurants, cookbooks and food-focused TV.Eater restaurant editor Hillary Dixler Canavan, pop culture editor Greg Morabito and managing editor Ellie Krupnick joined Amanda to talk about the season’s most highly anticipated restaurant openings, food TV premieres and forthcoming cookbooks. Daniel is on vacation this week, and we couldn’t possibly do stories without him, but he’ll be back next Friday!Stories:• 9 Food Shows to Watch This Fall• The Most Anticipated Restaurants for Fall• Don’t Put Your Kid on Weight WatchersFeaturing:Amy McCarthy (@aemccarthy)John deBary (@jnd3001)Hosts:Amanda Kludt (@kludt), Editor in Chief, EaterDaniel Geneen (@danielgeneen), Producer, EaterProduced by:Martha Daniel (@martha_c_daniel)Follow Us:Eater.comFacebok.com/EaterYouTube.com/Eater@eater on Twitter and InstagramGet in Touch:digest@eater.comAbout Eater:Eater obsessively covers the world through the lens of food, telling stories via audio, television, digital video, and publications in 24 cities across the US and UK.Learn more about your ad choices.

Just like there’s a song of the summer, inevitably, each year, a drink of the summer rises to the forefront of our collective consciousness to dominate warm weather gatherings between May and August. This year, it was all about White Claw, a low-calorie, low-carb spiked seltzer that’s been embraced by every kind of drinker out there.We hit the beach to learn more about the drink that’s sweeping backyard parties across the nation, and also called in cocktail expert John deBary (formerly of P.D.T. and Momofuko) for a taste test to find out which brand we should be reaching for at the grocery store.

On its surface, restaurant criticism sounds like a pretty great gig. But dining out on the company dime, trying all the best new restaurants and getting paid to eat dinner out isn’t all that glamorous when you peak behind the curtain. We called in two critics, Bon Appétit Deputy Editor Julia Kramer, who’s responsible for the magazine’s annual Hot 10 list, and our own Ryan Sutton, who covers New York, to tell us about the making of a restaurant review and the things that make their line of work uniquely strange. We also get into the biggest food stories of the week, from Popeye’s wildly popular new sandwich, to a beloved Brooklyn pizza joint getting nailed for tax evasion and a Cheeto-fueled conspiracy theory surrounding a certain tech giant.Stories:• Popeye’s vs. Everyone Else• Di Fara Shuttered for Tax Evasion• Does Jeff Bezos Know How to Eat Cheetos?Featuring:Julia Kramer (@juliakramer)Ryan Sutton (@qualityrye)Hosts: Amanda Kludt (@kludt), Editor in Chief, EaterDaniel Geneen (@danielgeneen), Producer, EaterMore to explore:Check out more great reporting from the Eater newsroom.Subscribe to Amanda’s weekly newsletter here.Follow Us:Eater.comFacebok.com/EaterYouTube.com/Eater@eater on Twitter and InstagramGet in Touch:digest@eater.comAbout Eater:Eater obsessively covers the world through the lens of food, telling stories via audio, television, digital video, and publications in 24 cities across the US and UK.
