Former Bon Appétit EIC Moves to Digital Magazine

Barbara Fairchild, the Bon Appétit Editor-in-Chief for 10 years before leaving in late 2010, has been named the Editor-in-Chief of Real Eats, a digital magazine about food.

The weekly title is produced by Nomad Editions, which creates mobile specific magazines that are downloadable through places like Apple’s Newsstand. The company’s Co-Founder is ex-Newsweek President Mark Edmiston.

He told The New York Times that the tablet-only magazine era is off to a great start. “Readers can buy and manage periodical subscriptions just as they do with their music and books,” said Edmiston. “I think we are at the tipping point.”

Real Eats subscriptions are available for .99 cents a month.
