I can’t really believe it, but Gourmet magazine is closing its doors. I’ve subscribed for years, but I feel that I must say that recently I’ve been thinking about canceling my subscription. There seems to be more pages with very stylized photos of people eating or partying and fewer pages with recipes and photos of food. I’ve hemmed and hawed about not getting the magazine, but every month I seem to find some wonderful recipes that I want to try. Now, my decision has been made for me.
I will definitely miss this icon in the world of food writing, but maybe it’s time to try something new. Just this weekend J. came home with a couple of food magazines for me and I must admit, that I’ve really enjoyed them and can’t wait to get in the kitchen and try a few of the recipes. Those publications are Fine Cooking and Taste of Italia. I was thrilled by finding publications with interesting, well written articles and recipes that inspired me to get cooking. Farewell to Gourmet, an old favorite and hello to the rest of you working hard to get new readers!
