Bon Appetit editor quits as magazine leaves L.A. for New York

Longtime Bon Appétit Editor Barbara Fairchild is leaving the magazine and the Los Angeles-based publication is moving to New York, parent company Condé Nast announced Monday morning.

Fairchild started with the magazine as an editorial assistant 32 years ago and worked her way up the masthead, including being editor in chief for the last decade. According to the announcement, after helping oversee the transition, she will be pursuing other opportunities, "including future projects for Condé Nast."

According to Condé Nast spokeswoman Maurie Perl, when Fairchild was told of the plan to relocate the magazine to New York, "she told us she was not prepared to make a full-time commitment to New York, as she has a lot of family in California."

Just this year I've been making all the BA cover recipes for my food blog, and it's made me appreciate the magazine even more. I'm sure that Ms. Fairchild will excel at whatever she decides to do next, but she will certainly be missed!

I am interested to see what's next for BA, though... could be interesting.
