The Villa Montaña and Salad Dressing

Red Shoes are Better than Bacon

All over the world, foodies are wringing their hands over the demise of Gourmetmagazine. They apparently forgot the day when Connoisseur folded itself into Gourmet, more than a decade and a half or ago. Some probably don’t even remember Laurie Colwin’s column in Gourmet.
