The Daily Meal's Media Mix brings you the biggest news around the food world.

The Hamburglar Exists: A man in Maine decided to pull a "hamburglar" and stole $20 worth of food from a McDonald's drive-thru. He ran in between a car and the takeout window, snatching the food and escaping. [CBS]

Fancy Hotels Work with Food Trucks: Apparently, high-end hotels are teaming up with chefs like José Andrés and Eric Ripert to bring permanent food trucks to poolsides, beaches, and the sidewalk, of course. It's a way to gain street cred, we guess. [USA Today]

Burger King Expands Menu: Sure, they lost the number two burger spot to Wendy's, but Burger King is apparently trying to get back on its feet by serving up new salads, chicken strips, breakfast burritos, and Cinnabuns. Also, you can get a Whopper in the morning now. [Burger Business]

Flour+Water Cookbook Coming: Thomas McNaughton is writing a cookbook based on his super popular San Francisco restaurant Flour + Water. The photos will come from the same guy who did the Tartine Bread book, so it will be gorgeous. [Eater]
