Conde Nast hasn’t given up entirely on food magazine Gourmet, it just plans on serving the leftovers in an iPhone and iPad app.
Gourmet, known for its literate articles and collectible recipes, hung up its apron in fall 2009. Conde plans to launch Gourmet Live, a free mobile version of the 70-year-old magazine title by the end of the year.
The app will offer a sampling of articles, recipes, video demonstrations and slide shows plus social media bells and whistles that will allow those grazing on the content to see which of their Facebook friends and Twitter connections have seen it and what they have to say.
Heavy users will be prompted to pay for a subscription, though the payment options haven’t been put on the menu, yet. It’ll be made in iPad-friendly HTML5, so perfect for propping up in the kitchen to execute that peppercorn roasted pork with vermouth pan sauce recipe.
