Anyone else miss Gourmet Magazine?

bimmertimmer | Sep 20, 201008:17 AM     84

October 09 was the last issue. I normally run through food magazines fairly quickly and pull out and file whatever I want to keep in order to keep the clutter down to a less than monsterous level. I kept this issue of Gourmet as it was the last one, and re-read it last night. What a terrific read. My Brother, who was responsible for much of my food training, gave me a subscription to Gourmet on my 18th birthday. As a young hippie college student, I must admit that I didn't quite get it. As I progressed in life and began to travel, Gourmet became a real sourcebook for me and I enjoyed it thoroughly. I realize that there were quite a few issues that I chunked pretty quickly, but there were stokes of brilliance as well. I miss it. Got to say Bon Appetite, which was the other food mag in the publisher's portfolio, doesn't quite do it for me. So much for long lived brands and tradition. I suppose that is the direction of the current. Anyway, I miss Gourmet........and socks and jeans made in the US..........and so on........and so on.
