i am going to miss gourmet magazine desperately. conde nast is shutting down gourmet, cookie and modern bride. gourmet! i will especially miss ruth reichl, she has done great things with that title. the layout, the design, her commentary and the great writers she selected as contributors. reading w. hodding carter's extreme frugality posts was always a joy. and so much else. ruth reichl truly amazing, and the recipes were superlative. i am hoping her new tv series, gourmet's adventures with ruth, will still be on pbs. see all about it here. cookie is really cute and always seems to have stylish family friendly lofts and houses on display, wildly creative and colorful. fun. so long friends, you will be missed.
and internet, you are so disruptive to so many businesses. i love you, but you are cruelly changing everything without regard to quality!
p.s. hodding carter has just started a blog to continue his extreme frugality series, also a book in the works. check out the blog here. and ruth's tv series will still arrive next week on pbs. (yay!)
