The Digest, a daily form of Chow News that you can subscribe via RSS, is being revamped and should be ready within the next few days. A weekly newsletter form of the Digest will be available in another week or two.
I've noticed that the new format for The Digest is up and has been updated a few times. Many thanks! However, the footer on each page of the site still has the topics from several weeks ago and hasn't changed.
I'm so sad that The Digest is on the Chow.com side. It seems that Chow.com is "entertainment" and blocked as such by my job's evil computer filters. Thank goodness the filter hasn't caught on to how much time I spend entertained by Chowhound.
