RIP Gourmet Magazine

First my favorite home decor magazine (I miss you Domino!) and now a culinary classic - Conde Nast is shuttering Gourmet Magazine. Cookie, Modern Bride, and Elegant Bride will also cease publication.

Gourmet has a long history, publishing since 1941, so this news comes as a shock. Conde Nast also owns Bon Appetit, which it will continue publishing. Admittedly I'm more of a Food & Wine gal, but I love thumbing through old copies of Gourmet when I stumble upon them, and I certainly lean heavily on their contributions to epicurious.

So sad! I know I can get recipes on line, but there is just something about thumbing through a food magazine. Online I go straight for recipe searching, and with the magazines you get the actual stories and beautiful photography. For food lovers, there's more to food than just tablespoons of this and cups of that.

RIP Gourmet. You'll be missed! For more info...
