Food Media Roundup, 2/24/12: Portlandia via Barcelona, Craig Claiborne bio, Southern Revival benefit for SFA in Miami Beach



If you missed Portlandia the Tour last night at Variety Playhouse, you also missed seeing some of our favorite full-time and part-time Atlantans, including Dave-FM's Mara Davis and surprise guest Margaret Cho. We weren't sure if writer Jamie Allen was inside or outside the venue, but evidently he's not one to suffer hipster fools or "that Barcelona place."

Kat Kinsman, managing editor for CNN's food blog Eatocracy, is better known to the ATL food Twitterati as @kittenwithawhip. She's pretty excited about receiving an early copy of the Craig Claiborne bio. How excited? Like Kristen Bell-sloth kinda excited.

Oh, hey, if you're going to the Food Network South Beach Wine & Food Festival this weekend, you might wanna see if tix are still available for the Southern Revival benefit event at Yardbird Southern Table & Bar. The fundraiser is for the Southern Foodways Alliance. Details are posted on the SFA blog.

So you're drinking your morning joe at Octane thinking, "Hm, besides these guys, who are the other 10 most influential people in coffee right now? "Food Republic's Coffee Culture column has the names. (Check out that ad, too, for Austin Food & Wine Festival coming up in April.)

Another Food Network notation: When you're setting your DVR this weekend, remember that @foxbrosbarbq 's favorite new show just might be "Worst Cooks in America."

It's like being nominated for an Oscar, sort of, only for magazine people. Congrats to @BillAddison, Atlanta magazine's food editor and restaurant critic, on being selected as a finalist in the 2012 National City and Regional Magazine Awards. Three of his feature stories were selected for the judging, including this one about Kristen Hard, owner of Cacao Atlanta. The CRMA awards will be handed out in May at the mag group's annual conference. This year it's being held in Vegas, baby, Vegas.
