Boca Raton-based JES Publishing Corporation, publisher of Boca Raton magazine, has pulled the plug on Florida Table. The magazine's latest summer issue -- which featured South Florida's James Beard award nominees on the cover -- was its last. Editor Marie Speed bid farewell to the magazine in a blog post on the Boca Raton magazine website:
What is saddest to me is that although everyone "loved" this magazine,
they did not support it financially--advertising was nearly impossible
to secure. Of course, that is why after more than three years we have
to stop publishing it: You can have the best magazine in the world but
magazines are a business, too--and if people do not support them, they
cease to exist.

It was just last week that I was reading through Florida Table. While I wasn't a subscriber, I enjoyed reading it so it's sad to see it go. Speed told Short Order that readers will still be able to get a dose of culinary content in a Florida Table section in Boca Raton magazine.
