MSLO to Sell Whole Living Magazine, Reduce Everyday Food to 5 Issues/Year

Some tough times at the publishing division of MSLO. The company announced on Thursday that it would be laying off many employees, and selling off the Whole Living magazine. It also announced that Everyday Food will no longer be a stand-alone magazine, but will instead be published as a supplement to the flagship Martha Stewart Living magazine. The number of issues of EDF will be reduced to five, from 10/annually. Obviously, decisions like these are not made without considering the impact on the affected employees, as well as the morale of employees still employed by the company. Please join me in wishing them all well, as they take their experience of working at MSLO and continue their professional ambitions. Myself, I love Everyday Food magazine, and while I am sad to see it reduced, I am very glad that it is not going away entirely. I find the information and recipes in the magazine to be extremely useful–indeed, it’s become my go-to source for what to make for dinner! All involved in the magazine, past and present, should be very, very proud.

From the New York Times:

he announcement capped a rough week for the company, which lost its power at its Manhattan offices and had to use phone and e-mail to inform the staff about layoffs and cutbacks at two of its four magazines. On Thursday afternoon, the company said it would lay off about 70 of its 600 employees. It also announced it would cut back publishing the magazine Everyday Food from 10 issues to five and no longer sell it as a standalone magazine. It is becoming a supplement that will be sold with Martha Stewart Living.

Did you Watch Episode 1 of Martha Stewart’s Cooking School?

Did you catch the first episode of “Martha Stewart’s Cooking School”? In this first episode, Martha demonstrated egg basics: how to soft boil, hard boil, fry, and make omelettes. She even provided tips on how to peel a hard boiled egg. After seeing the episode, I’m tempted to attempt soft boiled eggs, which I’ve never tried before. So, FOMs: Tell me, what did you think? (Here in Northern California, episode 2 was preempted for a special event. Episode 2–which covers sauces!–will air next Saturday.)

Martha Stewart on choosing one final meal: “Probably good, fresh eggs…delicious salad from the garden”

Martha seems so relaxed in this delightful interview with Piers Morgan on CNN. In this clip, she discusses what she’d eat (and drink) for her last meal. Of course, we FOMs already knew that eggs were Martha’s favorite food, right?

From CNN.com:

“If I was very hungry and I was told that I only had an hour?,” she clarified the question. “I probably wouldn’t be thinking about eating, Piers, but…”

“What would you start with?,” wondered the host.

“Probably good, fresh eggs. Delicious salad from the garden,” Stewart shared. “Boiled, scrambled. Just a really good farm butter.”

“And the main course, what would you have?” he followed up.

“That’s my main course,” she concluded.
