Farewell Gourmet

Gourmet magazine announced earlier this month that the November issue will be its last.  Publisher Conde Nast has decided to pull the plug on the iconic magazine after months of falling ad revenues.

The magazine has been in publication since December of 1940 and has approached the subject of food as culture ever since.  The magazine has featured such writers as Junogourmett Diaz, winner of the 2008 Pulitzer  Prize for The Brief Wondrous  of Oscar Wao, David Foster Wallace and Anthony Bourdain.

The Johnson & Wales North Miami Library retains Gourmet magazine from 1964 to the last issue.
