Is "Gourmet" The Best American Food Magazine?
Lookit all the nominations it's got! It's certainly got a lot better since Ruth Reichl
started editing it. Reading about its history one gets to know what American foodies were cooking, eating or just drooling over in the 40s
(Let no one pretend, after reading this potted history, that food used to be better in the old days). Still, for my money, the best food magazine in the world, better even than the French Saveurs
, is the scrumptious, San Francisco-based upstart Saveur
, whose online version has recently become extremely generous. Like most people I rarely try out a recipe - I just read it as virtual gastroporn
. In fact, it's the only magazine I actually collect.
