The Huffington Post has been making quite a few interesting changes lately. Earlier this month, it launched Twitter editions for its 19 sections, enabling readers to keep up-to-date with breaking stories, news sources and media personalities as well as facilitating the sharing of stories across this social network. Now, the site is launching two new sections: HuffPost Food (which debuted yesterday) and HuffPo Arts, which is slated to launch later this week.

Both sections are currently national, but will eventually evolve to focus on specific cities — like New York, Chicago, LA and Denver — in keeping with HuffPo’s existing, city-specific blogs.

Longtime HuffPo staffer Colin Sterling will act as the site’s new food editor, and says the section will be a “mix of high and low,” in keeping with the Huffington Post’s overall voice and scope.

Currently, HuffPo Food features, among other things, a look at celebrity chef Mario Batali [Ed. note: Zzz], an article about author and food activist Michael Pollan’s take on “Meat, Safran Foer, Salt & More” [Ed. note: This is the only article that’s ever made me think, “You know, maybe I should bookmark HuffPo for personal, non-work-related reading.” Kudos, Brand New Food Section!] and a link to Thrillist’s story on the “Lobster Pusher Man” [Ed. note: !].
