A Sad Farewell to Gourmet Magazine
I was very sad to learn that Gourmet Magazine will be closing the doors. The publisher Conde Naste announced on October 5th that November 2009 will be the last issue.
Apparently the casualty of our current down economy and the advertising dropoff that has affected the publishing industry at large. Like so many publications, the magazine has faced tough challenges coping with the Internet and changing consumer behavior.
Gourmet Magazine began in 1941, almost 70 years ago. That makes the magazine the nation's longest running food magazine.
For me, as a passionate food enthusiast, Gourmet Magazine has been an institution. An absolutely beautiful and elegant cooking publication, the magazine stood out above the rest. I will definitely miss Gourmet Magzine.
