Barbara Fairchild wrote on her Facebook page and on Twitter earlier this afternoon that Real Eats, the weekly digital food magazine she edits, is ceasing publication: “Sorry to report this issue of Real Eats is our last. Was fun while it lasted. Thanks to all my great writers, and the talented crew in NYC.” Fairchild confirmed by email that today's issue is the publication's last.
Fairchild, longtime editor of Bon Appetit, was named editor of Real Eats last December, and had been a columnist there for roughly a year before becoming editor. Real Eats has been published by Nomad, which since 2010 has made digital-only publications designed for mobile devices like the iPad. Yesterday Nomad also stopped publication of BodySmart, its health-oriented magazine. It has one magazine remaining, Uncorked, which focuses on wine.
“I have plenty of other things to keep me busy,” Fairchild told us. “Speaking engagements (including one tomorrow at the Milken Institute conference), consulting, radio work and a potential TV project. And there is always more freelance food writing and editing. It's always fun to see what the morning's email will bring!” We wish her only the best of future correspondence — and everything else.
