"New" Rosengarten Report: Did It Shut Down?

Has anyone subscribed to the "new" Rosengarten Report which debuted in May 2010? I subscribed ($59.95) in September, 2010, and never received any issues (you are supposed to receive them monthly via email.) My two emails to "support" went unanswered, so I had to dispute the charge on my credit card to get my money back. So sad, because I was looking forward to it. Any similar stories? Just a fair warning to those who may be tempted to subscribe.

  1. Boy do I miss David Rosengarten. My wife recently made a chocolate tort from one on his recipes. It was excellent. David was around in the FN's infancy when it was about cooking. Miss his type of show.

    1. I subscribed to "The Rosengarten Report" for about two with no problem. The magazine was excellent, by the way. Then they converted to being web-based only--no physical magazine was provided. Then I renewed (for the web-based magazine) and, suddenly, after about four months. the report stopped coming. I called the phone number provided and was informed that David Rosengarten had discontinued publication to devote himself to other matters. The woman on the other end of the phone offered a refund and I am uncertain whether one was sent to me or not, due to a change of address on my part about that time.

      A few years later, I received the notice of the 2010 "restart" of "The Rosengarten Report" and, once again, signed up. I got a few issues by going the website, but I don't think they ever started e-mailing me notices of the new issue, as promised. Frankly, at that point, I forgot about it, until I read the commentary above. I will be curious to see if they "restart" the magazine again.
