Web-food addiction

Gourmet magazine has relaunched its Web site (www.gourmet.com) with original content, including stories, reviews, videos, recipes and archival material dating to the magazine’s 1941 launch. - The Enquirer


And it's fabulous. Between www.gourmet.com, www.chow.com and http://www.cooksillustrated.com/, I'm a happy woman...

I guess this means I can finally get rid of the stacks of Gourmet's that are threatening to take over my kitchen since the recipes are now available online. Saveur also has a good website as well at saveur.com

Dating back to 1941, really? Thanks for the tip; this will help in my graduate research. Online searching beats sifting through microfilms and old magazines any day.

Yeah, they say back to 1941. Isn't that a cool concept? I love to learn about food trends, particularly in America. So varied...

But I did a search for aspic and... nothing! I was surprised. Maybe they're still working on it...

Speaking of food trends, did anyone read "Fashionable Food: Seven Decades of Food Fads" by Sylvia Lovegren? It's been on my list of "things to devour with my eyes" for a couple of years now. I thought about making it my book club selection when my month comes around and then telling everyone to make a throwback dish for a nostalgic potluck. Ha!

I have that book! It's a very fun read and enlightening at the same time. Interesting to know that during the 30's home economists and other food "experts" encouraged people to eat frozen or canned vegetables over fresh ones because fresh vegetables may have been picked by immigrants or poor people and you just never knew about those people. Oh the horror!

I'm planning on going through my grandma's old recipes soon-- they're in a bag in my closet-- just to find things like jello molds and aspics and uses for Velveeta that I can't (and wish I didn't) imagine.
