Yesterday's news about the demise of Gourmet magazine left me shocked, saddened, and speechless. I'll miss the many talented voices of Gourmet not only in the kitchen, but also in the living room, where I would do my first pass each month with sticky tabs in hand; at the table, where I'd flip through several issues at once, and plan the weekend's dinner party; and in bed, where I'd read every last word of every (last) issue, and often quote a few lines out loud from a particularly moving article to Eli before turning out the light. To mark the passing of this magazine that is about so much more than food, I'd like to share some images of the various corners of my home that it inhabits.
Dear Gourmet writers, photographers, editors, stylists, and recipe testers: Thank you. Truly. My thoughts are with you all. It's going to be a lot lonelier around here without you.
