It's late October, which means the November issues of food magazines have hit the newsstands. It's a huge deal in American food media: Recipe testing begins in early summer and the competition to find new things to say about what is ultimately a very traditional meal is fierce (and [...]
Devastated over the death of Gourmet? So are we, but we're not ones to sit around crying: there's still plenty of fantastic food writing and photography out there. Whether it's an entire magazine dedicated to food or an occasional feature in a general interest title, once we put together this list, it became clear that [...]
When Saveur recently relaunched its website and named their new aggregator/blog The Feed, it was somewhat controversial because unfortunately, Time Out New York's food/restaurant blog was already called The Feed.

Saveur's June/July issue is largely comprised of a collection of pieces of varying length entitled "Twenty-Four Reasons Why We Love Texas."
In this "Texas issue," Saveur does a fairly good [...]
It looks like there's new and invigorated regional food blog competition brewing between New York Media and Village Voice Media. NYM staked their claim to a national food media empire with their 2008 acquisition of MenuPages and its associated blog network — if the job listings are to be believed, a network that will soon [...]
