I'm Not Going To Renew Gourmet or Food & Wine

oakjoan | Jul 30, 2006 04:59 AM

I decided last week when my latest Gourmet arrived. I realized I was just sick and tired of pawing through page after page of ads for $5000 dresses, $6000 watches, $50,000 cars and spa hotels in Bali. The restaurants and hotels they recommend are all pricy.

I am also disgusted by the kitchen makeover articles. They're all the same - hugely expensive giant kitchens with professional ranges and walk-in fridges (kidding) and slate floors and granite counters, and blah blah blah. There's no imagination in any of them...never a feature showing somebody's regular kitchen make-over or examples of folks with tiny kitchens and how they've made them work.

I know that these magazines only exist for the ads, but they all start to blend into one after a while. I'm also really tired of Ruth R's Editor's column - so precious and so meaningless.

Saveur is also getting more and more like the others. I'm keeping my sub, but am disappointed more and more with that one, too.
