Wow!! The end of an era!
Condé Nast Publications is closing Gourmet […] the oldest food magazine in the U.S., having debuted in the 1940s.
Known for its rigorous testing of recipes and high production values, it has been closely followed by culinary aficionados. Condé Nast said the brand will live on in TV shows and books. It has not announced how many layoffs are involved.
Bon Appetit will continue to publish.

I have to admit that I haven’t read Gourmet Magazine in ages.
For me, it had lost its luster. But I will be forever indebted to them for their fabulous squash soup made with ginger and limes. Sure, we don’t use the butter that Gourmet called for when we make squash soup. But it is a staple for special dinners.
I wonder what is going to happen to the people who have subscriptions to Gourmet Magazine….
