This is a sad say in the culinary world. Gourmet Magazine, the oldest cooking publication in they United States is folding. Condé Nast chopped the mag in a cost-cutting move along with three other titles. They only have two cooking titles, Gourmet and Bon Appétit, and they chose to keep BA over Gourmet. Of course, I get them both, along with Food & Wine and Saveur, but Gourmet has always been my favorite.
The magazine was published since December, 1940. The move comes as somewhat a surprise to foodies, as the Gourmet title has prestige. Or it did, anyway. Another example of mediocrity over substance in my opinion.
