Gourmet, founded in 1941, container of great writing, transcendent (versus trendy) recipes, and food beyond food, meaning the politics and implications of food, folded. :-(
Luckily we can still get those recipes on Gourmet's sister site Epicurious. But now who is going to help us understand what food really means?
Maybe food today means that Gourmet can't survive. And so if that is true, then Gourmet is still speaking to us, and maybe it will come back one day under the same or a different name.
