More Bon App news: WWD is reporting that Adam Rapoport will be named editor-in-chief of Bon Appétit magazine, replacing the departing Barbara Fairchild.
Adam Rapoport is currently GQ's Style Editor and has done a fair amount of food writing and bloggery there. He also once edited the restaurant section at Time Out New York for three years. Said the blog Fuck Yeah Menswear, "Editor-In-Chief. / That's some major label swag, bro."
Rapoport's appointment is great news and might mean radical changes for the staid, traditional food magazine (just look at this month's cover). If he dials up the mag's hip quotient, will readers revolt the same way they did when the magazine revamped in 2008? Likely!
