Foodies that still get cooking magazines (Buzz loves Saveur among many), Bon Appetit just announced its new editor- in- chief, Adam Rapoport who is style editor at GQ. One could expect a big change in design…some think the magazine is staid in its look. It was redesigned in 2008 to the dismay of some Chowhound readers.
Kudos to Candice Woo who scored a food writing position at San Diego Magazine. She’s reviewing restaurants and it’s nice to see a fresh voice for the magazine.
Which brings me to the unfortunate Union Tribune, aka U-T. Whatever has happened to caring about food in this town? Don’t expect to see it coming from the U-T. People whose bylines were always there and who know food (Carolyn Dipping, Lori Weisberg, Peter Rowe, to name a few), have been relocated to writing about auto accidents, obituaries, and occasionally now a piece about a restaurant going bust. When will the U-T care about its readers and the food scene here? It seems management depends more on outside writers to fill the gap. Sorry to say that the redesigned paper doesn’t inspire one to renew their subscription (that would be Buzz). Sadly, the U-T logo and design look like something from a high school newspaper.
