A Tear for Gourmet

decode_gourmet_190Condé Nast announced today the closing of four magazines, including the iconic Gourmet.  Gourmet has been published since January 1941.

“The magazine has sustained a severe decline in ad pages, but the cut still comes as a shock. There was speculation that Condé Nast would close one of its food titles — Gourmet or Bon Appétit — but most bets were on the latter. Gourmet has a richer history than Bon Appétit, and its editor, Ruth Reichl, is powerful in the food world.”

Needless to say, I am shocked and saddened to hear this news.
