News You Can Use About Gourmet Closing Down

This sounds so harsh:

PLEASE BE ADVISED THAT GOURMET MAGAZINE WILL CEASE PUBLICATION AFTER THE NOVEMBER ISSUE.

I haven't started looking for that issue. It'll probably disappear the second it hits the stands.

This is interesting:

Your Gourmet subscription will be replaced by one to Bon Appétit. If you’re a current subscriber to both, they’ll extend your Bon Appétit subscription.

This is worrying:

The Gourmet website will only be up “during a transitional period”.

Oh, wait, the recipes will remain on Epicurious. All right then, that’s okay.

This is too bad:

No more Gourmet Institute events. You can get all your money back. For more info, call 1.866.811.4111.

My issue arrived in the mail today, I haven't cracked open the plastic wrapper yet but the cover of a roasted turkey looks beautiful. Hurry and start looking for it.

Hi Fran,
Welcome!
Thank you for telling me that. I will look for it today!

Hmm, I am not sure if I want a subscription to Bon Appetit. I was just hoping for my money back, since I kind of need it.

Sue said...

Hey Amy,
I'm not too sure how THAT'S going to work. I bet they have a couple of sets of Gourmet mugs sitting around that they could send you instead.

Amy said...

Yeah, I was already thinking that somewhere in the subscription contract you never see, says they can substitute a similar magazine if it goes under. Oh well, like you said, Bon Appetit recipes are more practical to cook with. I can't find half the stuff for the Gourmet recipes in the store up here.

What about a book of New Yorker cartoons instead?
