Former Wall Street Journal wine columnist Dorothy J. Gaiter, who wrote for the paper from 1998 to 2010 and conceived her “Tastings” column there with husband John Brecher, is senior editor. She starts things off with an evaluation of Lionel Osmin Villa’s 2012 La Vie en Rose rosé.

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.

Adam Rapoport Heading To Bon Appetit

WWD is reporting that Adam Rapoport, GQ‘s style editor, is heading to Bon Appetit as editor in chief next week, taking over for Barbara Fairchild.

Bon Appetit saw another major change just yesterday when it was announced that Carol Smith was leaving her post as publisher for Condé Nast’s food group, which includes Bon Appetit, and that Bill Wackermann would be assuming responsibilities for the group’s titles, which also includes the Gourmet brand.

Bon Appétit Down To Two Candidates For Editor

In September Condé Nast announced that they were moving Bon Appétit from Los Angeles to New York City and replacing editor Barbara Fairchild in the process.  According to Matthew Lynch of WWD,  the search for Fairchild’s successor has been narrowed down to two names: former Cookie editor-in-chief, Pilar Guzman, and Epicurious.com editor-in-chief, Tanya Steel.

Both candidates come with their fair share of experience.  Guzman edited Cookie from its inception in November 2005 until its fold in October 2009.  She made Crain’s 2008 40 Under 40 list and also co-authored Cookie‘s Time for Dinner cookbook and is planning to launch her own website, Momfilter.com.  Prior to stepping in as editor-in-chief at Epicurious, Tanya Steel worked as Bon Appétit‘s “New York editor.”  Steel has also appeared on Gordon Ramsay’s hit series, Hell’s Kitchen.
