I was looking back just now on how I felt the day Gourmet died. Did I ever tell you all that the night before they announced they were killing Gourmet, I had a dream that Ruth died in a car accident? It was the weirdest feeling the next day when I heard the news. I’m pretty emotional today.
I’m emotional today because I feel a dream is coming true. Too many people love Gourmet, love what it represents, love what it offers. Today is that day – the day Gourmet comes to life again in the form of an iPad application.
I could not be happier that I have something I loved so dearly back in my hands, although in a new form entirely.
If you loved Gourmet, or if you just love food or tech, please check out the application. Read all about it here: http://live.gourmet.com/questions/
See some of my tweets below from Oct. 5, 2009, the day it was announced they were shuttering Gourmet. To everyone who worked to bring it back to us in some form, thank you so much.
If #Gourmet went all-digital, I’d be first in line to work there (behind everyone who just lost their job there today, of course).

Think of all the opportunities to push the distribution of the #Gourmet content and unify the passionate subscribers!

I need to meet some more people who are as obsessed with both food & tech as I am.

RT @ruthreichl Thank you all SO much for outpouring of support. Sorry not to be posting now, but I’m packing. We’re all stunned, sad.
