Who Killed Gourmet Magazine?

"Who Killed Gourmet Magazine?" A proper post mortem for the 68 year old dowager of cooking mags. A complete analysis of what happened. Also ran on page 1 of Huffington Post:

I was surprised to read it was gone several weeks ago. I was even more surprised to receive the November issue yesterday.

Re: Who Killed Gourmet Magazine?

Most cooking mags today have more ads than they do recipes...that's why they are dying off...IMO.

Re: Who Killed Gourmet Magazine?

All print media took a mortal blow starting out back when Algore invented the Internet. I will predict they will all get gradually pummelled into the wastebasket of outdated technology cept for maybe real exotic occasions...that be if the Lord delays His Return of course.
