If you subscribe to Gourmet Weekly, Ruth Reichl and company's hebdomadal newsletter, then you knew the new Gourmet website launched today.
It did - and it is spectacular.
I've been exploring the entire site since it went live early this morning. It's like running through a brand new house, discovering luxurious comforts never dreamed of in the old place, much less the breathtaking vistas - and even finding my own room!
Among the many exciting features, Diary of a Foodie has its own wing on the compound too. And you will be able to watch the entire first season online! (Thanks Adrian and Susan for confirming that you could watch from Paris and Hong Kong!) As of today, only the first three episodes are available, but all 20 will be up soon.
Gourmet.com will be updated every weekday. Plus you can read articles from past and current issues, including the new piece about Marco Pierre White cooking in Jamaica, written by my friend and fearless Chicago Tribune reporter, Monica Eng. And watch MPW in the test kitchen too!
(My Choptalk post on Marco didn't make the move - but neither did any dubious photos from my night out with him on the town so I'm happy to just leave it at that.)
Remember to subscribe to Gourmet Weekly - that too is undergoing a redesign, which Ruth says we'll see next week
By the way, speaking of makeovers, what do you think of Ruth's new look? I think she's rocking it.
