Fine Cooking Magazine no longer to be published…

How incredibly sad! I received noticed in my mail yesterday that Fine Cooking Magazine will no longer be published. I’m not terribly surprised - it’s gone through major upheaval in the past few years and was sold, etc. Still, it was by far my favorite food magazine and I looked forward to reading it.

Anyone else sad to see it go?

Here are some other options:

Yes, sad also, and I hadn’t gotten that notice! It became my fav food magazine years ago, but I haven’t liked it as much the past few. Still, it will be missed.

Agreed - it’s gone downhill. Still, it was one of the best at its peak. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news!

I used to love FC but it definitely went downhill. I also love the MS magazine and I’m sad about that one too!

Martha Stewart Living hasn’t been great, or even good, in a very long time, in my opinion. I picked up a copy recently, since I no longer subscribe, and there was not a single appealing thing in there for me-I used to LOVE that magazine!

I don’t know about the website, but I’m assuming it will disappear too.

FWIW, Susie MIddleton, who was the EIC at FC, is the editor of “Cook the VIneyard,” where Abby Dodge (another former FC editor) has a column:
