Condé Nast announced on Monday that they would stop the publication of Gourmet magazine, along with three other titles. Founded in 1941, Gourmet has captivated foodies and luxury chefs alike for almost 70 years. In 2007, Ruth Reichl, editor-in-chief of Gourmet, introduced a monthly vegetarian section to the magazine. In recent years, it has tackled a range of animal-rights issues, including the cruelty of shrimp and chicken farming. According to Condé Nast, Gourmet has dropped in sales, and maintains a smaller readership than its sister magazine, Bon Appétit. The November issue of Gourmet will mark its farewell.
