This morning, Condé Nast announced a new series of special issues of the now-defunct Gourmet magazine. Quite simply, the three "limited edition" mags will be a compilation of recipes pulled from the Gourmet archives.
The first to be released is Gourmet Quick Kitchen; it features 81 fast and easy recipes with new photos, tips, menu suggestions, and wine pairings. The 128-page tome will have no advertisements and was edited by a Gourmet editor, Kempe Minifie. The public will be able to pick up a copy of Gourmet Quick Kitchen for $10.99 at newsstands starting on September 7.
While I've definitely missed Gourmet, I'm not sure I see the point in the recipe booklets.
