The only good thing I can say about the demise of my much-loved Gourmet is that it has allowed me to rediscover my first food-magazine-love, Saveur. A copy of the March issue on Los Angeles was one piece of highly valuable Estados-Unidos loot I picked up in the Atlanta airport, and includes a lyrical essay about a Guatemalan food vender named Lydia.  You should read it too.
