So, on the one hand, we are glad that Condé Nast is not just dumping Gourmet's back issues in an archive somewhere. Some of the best food writing of the past century lives in those issues, and it would be a shame for them to get locked away. We are glad that they will be re-presented and made widely available.
On other hand, this not a re-launch of Gourmet. We can only hope that any new content from these "producers" is not something driven by advertisers, or the anemic stuff that litters food magazines these days.

How do you feel about this Gourmet "re-launch"?
