Eating Well magazine closes

January 27, 1999|By Los Angeles Times

Eating Well, the Vermont-based magazine of cooking and health, has folded.

"The decision was made due to a lack of circulation and advertising support," said a representative for Hachette-Filipacchi, publishers of the magazine.

Outgoing editor Marcelle Di Falco was philosophical when reached at her home in Bristol, Vt. "The sad thing is that people who knew the magazine loved it," she said of Eating Well's more than 650,000 readers. "In a strange way, that might have been part of the problem.

"The thing people loved us for was also the reason maybe some people on the outside didn't understand us. We weren't sensational and I guess it's kind of hard to sell the middle-of-the-road. ... No strange diets, no miracle cures, just really good solid stuff."
