FINDING A CHEF: All signs are pointing toward Adam Rapoport as the new editor in chief of Bon Appétit. A formal announcement is expected to come as early as today. Rapoport, who has been the style editor at GQ, will succeed Barbara Fairchild, who’s ending a 32-year run with the magazine, the last decade of that time spent in the top job. When it was revealed in September that Fairchild would be leaving, Condé Nast also said the title would be moving to New York from its longtime home in Los Angeles. At the time, a spokeswoman said that Fairchild, who is bicoastal, was unable to commit to a full-time move to New York.
Rapoport has covered food, fashion, design, travel, film and music during his decade with GQ. In the food department, he mainly edits the title’s larger food packages, but he writes regularly about the topic for both the magazine and the forked & corked blog on gq.com. Prior to joining GQ, he edited the restaurant section at Time Out New York for three years and worked as an editor and writer for the James Beard Foundation’s publications office. He did not return a call for comment, but sources said he’s been asked to work on Bon Appétit’s digital presence and expand its readership to include more men. A Condé Nast spokeswoman also had no comment. — Amy Wicks
