Are "the Ten" and "Gear" shut down?
We're not doing the Ten as regularly as we used to. Louisa Chu's Gear column did end (as did Sara Dickerman's Shelf Life). We're going to be reevaluating those drop-down lists in the top navigation sometime soon, so perhaps they won't be as distracting to you!
The newest content can always be found down at the bottom of the page in the footer, or on the chow.com home page.
