Cooks Source Magazine Publishes Apology to Writer

Cooks Source magazine apologized to writer Monica Gaudio for printing her recipe without permission. The magazine also made donations to the Columbia School of Journalism and the Western New England Food Bank at Gaudio’s request.

Here’s an excerpt: “Last month an article, ‘American as Apple Pie — Isn’t,’ was placed in error in Cooks Source, without the approval of the writer, Monica Gaudio. We sincerely wish to apologize to her for this error, it was an oversight of a small, overworked staff.”

From now on, the magazine will secure the written consent of writers prior to publication. The magazine also removed its Facebook page following a flood of protests. Gawker and John Scalzi both reviewed the apology.
