Today, The New York Times announced that The San Francisco Chronicle plans to close its stand-alone food section. The SF Chronicle will fold the food section into a single lifestyle section—tentatively titled “Artisan”—with material from the newspaper’s home section. “Staff members of the newspaper spoke to The Times anonymously because they said they feared reprisals for disclosing the plans.” Apparently, there will be no layoffs, but recipe testing will no longer take place.
