GOURMET IS DEAD...

Sad news on the foodie front.
After 69 years of loyal services, the irreplacable Gourmet Magazine is scheduled to close!
I'm so disappointed by Condé Nast's decision.
This makes me so sour and gloomy..........

  16. I'm sad too. It's just such a hard time for print media right now that they have to make cuts. (Not the fault of the subscribers, it's the advertisers that are falling off!) Now where are we going to go for beautiful food porn??

  45. Me, too. I keep hoping it's a bad "trick or treat'' gag. But alas, it's merely a bad decision made solely based on finances. Sigh.
