    I can’t say that I will miss Gourmet magazine. I have had subscriptions to pretty much every cooking magazine on the planet and I don’t think Gourmet has anything to do with reality. The recipes are complex, the restaurant reviews are for extremely posh locations, and the gadgets are super expensive. It’s really more of a travel magazine than anything. I have always liked Bon Appetit.

    Great articles though and interesting insights. I still like to pick up a good cooking magazine to find contemporary and seasonal recipes. Sometimes the internet just doesn’t feel as fun.
