Death of a Culinary Giant
I am still shocked about Conde Nast's decision to close Gourmet Magazine.... While I am not a long time subscriber- I've only received it in the mail for the past two years- I have become enamored with its recipes, food articles, and photography. Although it may seem intimidating and fussy, Gourmet, in its later years, evolved into a stove-side guidebook. Its recipes, on the whole, were exotic but real enough for a Tuesday night.
I'm not sure what new mag the publishing company will decide to stick me with to finish out my subscription... but it definitely won't be Gourmet.
For the next few weeks, I'll pay tribute to the late food mag with some of my Gourmet favorites.
