New York Times Magazine: Q&A with Ruth Reichl on the End of Gourmet
Click here for the story, which appeared in Sunday’s New York Times Magazine. Best part of the Q&A:
NYT: Did you see Jon Stewart the other night, when he made a Gourmet joke?
RR: I did not. What did he say?
He mentioned that Condé Nast was shutting down four magazines — Gourmet, along with Modern Bride, Elegant Bride and Cookie — and suggested that instead they could be combined into a new cost-cutting magazine called Pregnant Gourmet Bride.
That’s great! I’m amazed no one has told me that. I’m amazed my son didn’t at least e-mail me that.
