  1. And Gourmet too! I am so sad to see that mag go. 🙁

    @Meagan I’m very sad about Gourmet as well. I’m a Bon Apetit reader, too, so hopefully they will pick up material into that one.

    @Sarah Oh, I agree. I’m just sad because I have a subscription to both…so I wonder how that’ll work, haha!
