Come on Conde Nast, don’t you think you overreacted pulling the plug on Gourmet so quickly? Not only was it my favorite food magazine, but it was also my favorite travel magazine. I not only wanted to eat the food but I also wanted to go to that place and meet those people.
To make matters worse the archives of Gourmet are either so buried in the Epicurious website or they are gone completely. The only element that is still easy to find are the recipes. If that’s all they thought was worth holding onto then they didn’t realize what they had in the first place.
I really, really loved Gourmet. It wasn’t just for foodies, it was for everybody – chefs, eaters, artists, photography fans, world travellers… even fashionistas that don’t eat! C’mon, Conde Nast!
