May I complain about Food and Wine?

No, not really good food or wine, such as described in C&B, an oasis of my DU posting...

The magazine, IMO (not so humble) is something I subscribed to from around 2003 to 2006. I still have those issues for good reason, because the recipes and some articles, wine listings were all really, really good.

My grandson's school recently wanted to raise money, and since I'm not physically close to just handing him over the money, I said, "I'll contribute and choose one of your magazines", and the only one tempting me was F&W.

It's so awful. I can sum my extreme displeasure this way... For one thing, it's now put out by American Express Publishing Corporations thought it has the same executive editor. For every 5 or 6 pages of glossy advertisements that somehow tie into the travel adventures a la American Express, there are a few appealing recipes, but mostly things that grill cucumbers, make "cocktails out of things the average cook would raise an interested eyebrow to, and so much other eye candy crap ads! By the time you find any usable recipes or stories worth reading, you're almost to the back of the issue, which is smaller and thinner, but same price.

It's just crap, and I wanted to say that here and now.

Glad I saved the older issues and called them personally to take me off the lists they admit that they sell to for being a "subscriber", which I will be no more!
