End of an Era: Gourmet Magazine is Closing

End of an Era: Gourmet Magazine is Closing

I need another cup of coffee.

The big, big, big shocker news of the a.m. today: the New York Times reports that Conde Nast is closing Gourmet magazine, which has been in publication since December 1940.

A must-read for food fanatics for its impeccable writing, lust-worthy photography, and of course, recipes, Gourmet is one of Conde Nast's most elite titles, and editor Ruth Reichl is one of the contemporary culinary world's brightest luminaries -- and an amazing writer.

Conde Nast's decision to close Gourmet comes in the wake of a three-month analysis of the company's costs; Gourmet's declining ad revenue is the culprit for the move. Conde Nast's other food magazine, Bon Appetit, is still alive -- for now.

Millions of foodie hearts are breaking as we speak.
