Brew that coffee! Pour that OJ! And settle in this morning to catch up on what's happening in the world of food. Here's what we're reading (and watching) this week.

• So many of us grew up with Saturday mornings filled with pancakes and radio -- let's get back to that meatiest of media and listen up to Associated Press Editor J.M. Kirsch as he gives us the run-down on the new AP Stylebook for food writing. (NPR

• This mini travel documentary wanders through Russian fields and Georgian kitchens, recounting a family adventure that's both educational and endearingly funny -- agritourism in the former U.S.S.R. (The New York Times)

• Or, how about joining Nancy Harmon Jenkins in Tuscany for an olive oil boot camp? You too could be there in October pressing the precious fruit and, for the love of olive oil, why not?

Olive groves in Puglia -- for the love of olive oil!

• We love a little clubby rapport between two of our favorite farm-to-table cooks: Dan Barber's crazy for the spinach falafel at Ana Sortun's Oleana, further proving that awesome people hang out together. (Grub Street Boston)

• On a slightly more serious note, is obsessively controlled eating truly disordered? They call it "orthorexia"  -- food (or lack of it) for thought this weekend. (Spoonfed)

• After a brief hiatus, the food52 Kickstarter of the week is alive and kickin'. This week the spotlight's on some of our neighbors in Brooklyn who are growing community -- brilliantly -- around beer
