Sad to see Christopher Kimball depart Cook’s Illustrated

My parents and I have subscribed to both Cook’s Country and Cook’s Illustrated for several years now. The recipes are fantastic. And so are (or were) the editorials from Christopher Kimball, which were more about life in general than just cooking.

We got the most recent issue of Cook’s Illustrated and I noticed that the editorial was from “the editors”, not Christopher Kimball. A scan of the publisher’s information also showed that Kimball’s name was no longer mentioned, whereas before he was the “Editor and Founder”.

Today I looked him up in Wikipedia and found out that he left the magazine and television programs in November of last year over a contract dispute. How sad.

The magazines are still fantastic, and if you like cooking I would highly recommend getting a subscription to both.

But I will definitely miss Kimball’s editorials.
