Gourmet magazine, known for it’s exquisite recipe ideas, alongside impeccable photography, and tasteful typography is closing after being published for nearly 70 years. I ask you this: Is nothing sacred? Answer: No, nothing is. The publishing industry being in shams has left me wondering: What am I going to do? Where will I go if something similar happens to the magazine I work for?
I can say this: I didn’t do enough. I let my Gourmet subscription fall after receiving the magazine for years.
I propose everyone re-up a subscription to their favorite magazine. What magazine would you choose? At my house, we already receive Dwell, Esquire, and Sunset. I will re-subscribe to Vanity Fair today. If that magazine closes, it really will be the end of the world.
