Last week's leftovers: Week of 10/4/09 (the week we lost Gourmet)

There was really only one big story in the culinary world this week — the demise of Gourmet. Word came Monday that the 68-year-old magazine had been shuttered.

Unlike most food magazines today that focus mainly on recipes and food preparation, Gourmet regularly showcased original and inspiring food writing (see "Consider the lobster").

It was one-of-kind and will be missed.
