Kids have headed back to school and there’s a chill in the air. No denying fall is here and the lazy days of summer—or for our editors, the very busy days of summer—have passed.

Whether you’re looking for ski adventures of the latest food trends, you’ll find them at RFT.

For the first time in’s 12-year history, this summer we took a break and published not three times a week, but just two. It enabled us to travel more and bring you even more exciting stories and adventures.

However, it’s time to get back to work and we want you to know that our editors have reinstated our aggressive three times a week publishing schedule. That’s 12 new stories a month. Every Monday, Wednesday and Friday we’ll be bringing you new travel stories, recipes, product reviews, cookbook reviews, and more from our award-winning contributors. And, whenever there are news items or travel advice– or our editors have something they just have to get off their chests–we’ll be posting new items on our News & Views pages.

Our newest editor, Suzanne Corbette, who is RFT’s Food History Editor, has spent the last few months publishing an exciting new book, Unique Eats & Eateries St. Louis, which we’ll be reviewing. And Suzanne will be back bringing you not only new perspectives on food, but also fascinating history about food and food trends. We’re also welcoming Diane DeFidelibus as one of our new cookbook reviewers. Diane, whose background is in science research, is one of those “mad scientists” in the kitchen who loves to test and tinker with recipes. She’s the perfect person to test out crazy cookbooks like Fair Foods: The Most Popular and Offbeat Recipes from America’s State and County Fairs.
