You know, I heard this rumor sometime last year, but I never ever thought it could possibly come true. Axing Gourmet over Bon Appetit? And on the heels of not just one but two amazing cookbook releases? I can see how it could be considered in a devestated economy, but come on--the tide is rising again, slowly but surely.
But--this in the NYT today.
There is much to say here about corporate overlords, shareholders and profit margins vs. cooking, writing, art and love. But right now I'm thinking only about the hard-working staff of Gourmet and their families, and of course our Ruth, who is the front man for this band and is absorbing a lot of praise and criticism in the media right now.
Ruth. Our director? I'm thinking Tarantino.
