'Culture,' a Magazine for Cheese Lovers

Serious Cheese MartinJ 8 comments

For years, as the great cheese renaissance took off, there was no magazine to unify those making the cheese or tell the serious cheese-philes where to buy it. Then in 2008, at the bottom of the worst recession in generations, Culture magazine started. I loved it but feared its future. But, thankfully, two and half years later it's thriving like the wheels of goat-gouda at your local cheese shop. The magazine's editor wouldn't be surprised if McDonalds started selling cheeseplates in ten years. More

Bon Appétit Magazine is NYC-Bound

The Serious Eats Team 6 comments

Bon Appétit, which has been based in Los Angeles since it was founded in 1975, is headed east. Condé Nast's chief executive officer said the move is for efficiency's sake, and while it may make sense for the company to consolidate its assets, they're losing longtime editor Barbara Fairchild in the process. Fairchild started as an editorial assistant at the magazine 32 years ago. More

'Advertising Age' Talks to Condé Nast CEO About 'Gourmet' Shutdown

Adam Kuban 4 comments

From Advertising Age's Q&A with Charles H. Townsend, president and CEO of Gourmet publisher Condé Nast: Advertising Age: A Condé Nast employee asked me today whether choosing Gourmet over Bon Appétit signals the future of Condé Nast. Do you shut down the title that's beautiful and smart with good writing, the employee asked, and go for the title with recipes and pictures of cheeseburgers? Do you go with mass over the esteemed, narrower title?Mr. Townsend: That's not Condé Nast. I think that Bon Appétit certainly has broader appeal but I would by no means characterize it as a mass magazine. It's still a high-end magazine. You look at its demography, its price points, the advertising it carries, you look at... More

'Gourmet' Magazine: 1941–2009

Ed Levine 17 comments

"For me Gourmet has always been the gold standard for food magazines." The editor's letter from the premiere issue (January 1941) of Gourmet magazine. By now you've all read the shocking news this morning, courtesy of the New York Times, that Gourmet is going to cease publication with its upcoming November issue. The news hit anyone with a love for great writing and seriously delicious food hard. Really hard. For many of us Gourmet symbolized much of what we love about food journalism: terrific writing, careful editing, and beautiful photos. In recent years Gourmet editor-in-chief Ruth Reichl has also added food politics and harder food news reporting into the magazine's editorial mix, which was much appreciated by me, at least.... More

'Print' Magazine's Food Issue

Adam Kuban 1 comment

The August 2009 issue of the graphic-design trade magazine Print is dedicated to food. The magazine has done several themed issues throughout its history, but this is the first to deal primarily with the design culture of food. Stories in the issue include a look at packaging that has never changed (hello, Happy Boy!), an inside look at food photographers and food styling, and a photo essay on designers cooking (with the designers' recipes—including Serious Eats fave Swissmiss—to appear on the Print website in the next week or so, I'm told). Sorry for the lack of links; a little birdie at Print says they're waiting to launch their website redesign before uploading stories from the current issue. But you... More

Food Glossies Focusing on Comfort Food, Inexpensive Dishes

Ed Levine 3 comments

A piece in the New York Times today states the obvious: Upscale food magazines are reacting to the economic downturn by focusing on recipes and stories about meatloaf, macaroni and cheese, and burgers instead of missives on the joys of foie gras, caviar, and Kobe beef. The cover from the various March issues tell all: Bon Appétit: "Comfort Food Now" is a coverline; the photo is shephard's pieFood & Wine: Root vegetable gratin, a fancy-pants casserole, is the coverGourmet: Grilled ham and cheese sandwich on the cover Interestingly, the story barely mentions the web at all, which is kind of strange when you think about it....

Adam Kuban 4 comments

The Guardian's Word of Mouth blog reports that Jamie Oliver is launching his own food rag. Jamie Magazine hits WHSmith newsstands and stores in the UK on Thursday. "Oliver takes many of the magazine's photographs himself, and copy is packaged in Jamie's trademark 'alright geezer' style, a 'no bullshit' here, a comparison of a flavour to an 'acid-house party rave' there—although there are also more worthy pages on the politics of tipping."...
