AJC food writer Jenny Turknett explores downloadable culinary classes, guest food lecturers, and other audio goodies like the 92nd Street Y's "Food Talks" at iTunesU. Check out her post on the Food and More blog.

"It feels like patio weather!" Or at least it did the day Sprig Restaurant in Decatur shared this little snapshot on Twitter. Alfresco dining just barely tucked away from the parking lot and a dollar store - ah, springtime in Atlanta.

Atlanta cookbook author and bourbon devotee @virginiawillis just announced via Twitter that she'll be a contributing editor for Southern Living mag. Congrats and cheers, Miss Willis!

L.A. foodies and journos were reminiscing online after last week's announcement that Pulitzer-Prize winning food critic Jonathan Gold was leaving L.A. Weekly to return to the Los Angeles Times. The news sent us tripping down SoCal memory lane, too, back to the late 1980s (pre-Atlanta move) when we ended an exhausting day at Disneyland with an hour-long drive around the flatlands of Anaheim, searching for a Thai restaurant written up in his "Counter Intelligence" column. (And,yes, it was worth it.) For one of his grief-stricken colleagues, though, the news of his departure was positively Elisabeth Kübler-Ross-esque.

And speaking of L.A., one final Oscars note. Before Angelina leg-bombed Academy Awards viewers Sunday night, Atlanta's food Twitterati were freaked over her beyond slender silhouette. @FifthGrouper suggested Miss Jolie needed a fix of South City Kitchen's pimento cheeseburger. A little restaurant pimping, a little pimento. Well-played, resto marketing man.
