I usually don’t like to talk about current events on my blog because, from the beginning, I have decreed this to be a happy place about baking, cookbooks and food, in general.
CondÃ© Nast Publications has made the decision to shut down production of the magazine, along with a number of others, for financial reasons.
When I first heard the news, I could hardly believe it. But after some reflection, taking into consideration the financial suffering that so many have endured recently, I suppose it’s not surprising.
Having said that, though, it certainly doesn’t make it any less surprising to know that one of my very favourite food magazines is no more.
A magazine that set the highest of standards, Gourmet has been a constant source of inspiration.
I will miss looking forward to a new issue each month. As a tribute, I’ve posted a picture of one of my favourite Magazine Mondays submissions and Gourmet magazine recipes, from the April 2008 issue: Oven Crespella with Nutella Sauce.
