Condé Nast will introduce three newsstand only special editions under the Gourmet brand, beginning with Gourmet Quick Kitchen on sale September 7, 2010. Gourmet Quick Kitchen will be a collection of 81 quick, easy and timeless recipes coupled with beautiful photography, packaged as an illustrated cookbook.
With a modern design and more than 120 pages, Gourmet Quick Kitchen will be filled with classic Gourmet recipes and photos, in addition to featured new content, including food photographs and helpful kitchen tips throughout. Memorable, simple dishes will be brought together for the first time and organized into 12 chapters, categorized by a recipe index. The special edition will include eight new menus, complete with wine pairings by Belinda Chang, Wine Director at New York City’s The Modern.
“The Gourmet special editions offer a new way for food lovers to add to their treasured collections and for new cooks to build a solid foundation,” says Carol Smith, Vice President and Publishing Director, Bon Appétit and Gourmet.
This special edition publication was edited by former executive food editor of Gourmet magazine Kempe Minifie, and Catherine Kelley, former executive editor of O, the Oprah Magazine.
Gourmet Quick Kitchen will be available at newsstands and at the condenaststore.com for $10.99. The second and third special editions will be published in 2011.
Gourmet Quick Kitchen joins previously announced special edition publications of Condé Nast brands including Bon Appétit, Glamour, GQ, The New Yorker and Vogue that will be available exclusively at retail.
Gourmet magazine was introduced in 1941 under the cover line “The Magazine of Good Living.” Seven decades later, its brand stands for the same qualities.
