Food Magazines After Gourmet

The L.A. Times Food Section offers an interesting assessment of the food magazine market following the demise of Gourmet Magazine.

The article's main theme is that -- just like cable TV -- food magazines today are narrowing their focus and seeking out loyal niche audiences.

It's a good read for those interested in publishing trends in particular or entertainment marketing in general.

I love Cook's Illustrated and Country Kitchen- but they are expensive. But they are excellent magazines that go into actually teaching the home cook, rather than just printing recipes.

I agree, my favorites -- Cook's Illustrated and Fine Cooking -- are much more expensive than the typical cooking magazine, but on the other hand these are magazines I keep and cook from for years...

I have learned so much from Cook's Illustrated (their books as well as magazines) over the last few years!

Best wishes,
