Gilt to Launch Food Website, Gilt Taste, Headed by Gourmet's Ruth Reichl

Gilt Groupe to Launch Online Food Site With Ruth Reichl

After Gourmet magazine folded in October 2009, everyone wondered what Editor in Chief Ruth Reichl's next move would be. She laid low for awhile, but now she's jumping back into the food industry in a big way. Not only is Reichl a judge on the upcoming third season of Top Chef Masters, but she's also involved with the Gilt Groupe's latest project, a new food website, Gilt Taste.

The site will be an "online market" that offers "exceptional artisan foods with stories and recipes from the experts." Old Gourmet senior writer Francis Lam, who currently oversees Salon's food site, is said to be joining Reichl at Gilt Taste. There's no doubt that power duo will create a buzz-worthy, excellently written and curated food site. I'm excited to check it out when it launches in late Spring.

Wow... that is pretty awesome. I already am addicted to Jetsetter, and I look at Gilt (but never purchase... nothing has caught my eye yet), so I can't wait for this since I'm food-obsessed!

I love Ruth! Looking forward to checking this out. Curious to see what kind of vegan options (if any) are available too.
