Fine Cooking Editor: ‘Everybody’s a Foodie’

0051807.jpgLaurie Buckle, who recently left her position as managing editor at Bon Appétit to take over the top spot at Fine Cooking, told us over the phone earlier today that she jumped ship (from sunny So Cal to CT.) because food magazines have lost their focus. “[Fewer and fewer] food magazines are about cooking,” she said. “They are about lifestyle,” citing Bon Appétit, Rachael Ray and Paula Deen as examples that “speak to a larger lifestyle.

“I see food and cooking as a key element to a well-lived life,” the new editor told us. “Everybody’s a foodie.”

The worst part about her cross-country move? Not having easy access to her cooking supplies in her new condo.
