There's life beyond Saveur and Gourmet.

The blog era has hurt zines generally, and the food world is no different. Gourmet, Saveur, and a few others dominate the newsstands, and various Websites fill in the remaining niches like life-forms on the floor of an old-growth forest. But a good post on the Paupered Chef today reminds its readers that there are still some independent magazines that make a major contribution to gastronomy. The post lists Gastronomica, the highly cerebral journal published by UC Berkeley; Grub Street favorite Edible Brooklyn and its soon-to-be-published sequel, Edible Manhattan; Williamsburg's Diner's Journal; and writer Ed Behrs idiosyncratic but intensely focused The Art of Eating.
