Central Market Cooking School (4001 N. Lamar, 458-3068) hosts Atlanta chef/teacher/author Virginia Willis for a brunch class this Sunday. Willis is on the road promoting her wonderful new cookbook, Bon Appétit, Y'all (Ten Speed Press, 312 pp., $32.50), a treasure-trove of three generations of classic Southern recipes presented by a gracious daughter of the South, who also happens to be a French-trained chef. I met Willis at a food writers conference at the Greenbrier resort in West Virginia years ago when she worked as an assistant to renowned cooking teacher Anne Wil­lan, and I've kept an eye on her career ever since. The book is just delightful. I can't wait to renew our acquaintance and taste some of her cooking. $60; there are still a few spaces available. Sunday, June 8, 11am-2pm.
