how will i cook?

i deeply mourn the news that conde nast will stop publication of ‘gourmet’ magazine.  this iconic magazine has been publishing for over 70 years and has over 1 million subscribers.  many of whom would have, i am sure, paid a little more to offset the loss of ad revenue.  gourmet has been an inspiration to me and often a confirmation of the solid culinary ground i always felt working in the kitchen.  i was once inspired to write to them over an article on pies.  pies.  so perfectly basic and so perfect.  they are keeping bon appetit…a magazine so subpar that it is often given away as a bonus subscription with purchases of other stuff.  feh.  life has truely changed and, this time, not for the better.

    I totally agree. I am surprised they didn’t try the ad-free route that has worked for Cooks Illustrated. I agree that subscribers would have worked to offset the lost revenue.

    Another sad day in the world of journalism.
