Condé Keeps Gourmet Alive In App Form

eee.jpgWhen Condé Nast folded Gourmet magazine along with three other titles two months ago, there was a little bit of consolation for the award-winning food title: It wasn’t completely disappearing, but would be folded into Epicurious.com, one of Condé Nast Digital’s Web entities.

Now, six months after the release of Epicurious’ iPhone application, the number of downloads for the free app have exceeded one million, creating a small silver lining for those who are still smarting from Gourmet‘s absence, and a boon for Condé Nast, which has been striving to prove itself successful in the digital realm.

Full press release after the jump.

Condé Nast Digital’s Schutte: We’re Not A Late Bloomer

conde333.jpgToday Folio magazine posted an interview with Drew Schutte, senior vice president and chief revenue officer of Condé Nast Digital, about the direction of Condé Nast online and the future of the publishing company.

Unsurprisingly, Schutte was defensive about Folio‘s assertion that Si Newhouse‘s titles have been late to adapt to the whole World Wide Web thing. At the same time, Schutte’s reassertion of the old Condé adage that the Internet will never replace magazines and that any digital content is merely a “supplement” to the print product is really starting to sound stale, considering the major losses Condé’s print editions have suffered lately.

NYT Restaurant Critic Sam Sifton Needs A Better Disguise

After serving as culture editor for The New York Times, new restaurant critic Sam Sifton may have to give up the convention of remaining anonymous to those in the back of the house. He’s already been spotted by celebrity chef Daniel Boulud.

As Page Six reports today:

“Daniel Boulud was cooking at the Epicurious.com Entertains NYC event last week when he got word that the incoming Times food critic had popped into his flagship Restaurant Daniel. ‘Boulud thanked everyone and bolted back to the restaurant before serving dessert,’ a source says. ‘He didn’t want Sifton to see his place running without him there.’ The source said of Sifton, ‘The problem is that all the chefs recognize him. Daniel didn’t say hi, but he knew he was there.’”

Sounds like Sifton should invest in a good wig or one of those glasses with the nose on them.
