For those with short memories -- whether from youth or from fading mental powers -- Ruth Reichl's anthology covering 65 years of Gourmet's publication reveals just how much we have lost. It's a sad fact that intelligent writing about food is increasingly reliant on people such as you who don't have to satisfy greedy, illiterate publishers. http://www.amazon.com/Best-Gourmet-Sixty-five-Favorite-Recipes/dp/1400066387/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1255678247&sr=1-1


It's sad as well that the November issue (her and their last) was "in the can" and thus even her last editorial is business as usual not Adieu!
