The Life and Death of Gourmet

Submitted by on October 16, 2014 – 8:16 amNo Comment

gourmet-magRoad Trips Foodies still have time to catch “The Life and Death of Gourmet – The Magazine of Good Living” — an exhibit in the Special Collections Library of Hatcher Graduate Library South at the University of Michigan, 913 South University Avenue, Ann Arbor, Michigan.

Although it opened September 2, it runs through December 1, 2014. Hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays through Fridays.

One issue from each of Gourmet’s 69 years of publication (1941-2009) is on display as well as books published by Gourmet and books published over the years by leading contributors to the magazine. Items are drawn from U-M Library’s Janice Bluestein Longone Culinary Archive.

Gourmet illuminated the ‘best of the best’ in categories such as farm to table practices – long before it became fashionable, reviewed top restaurants and chefs, and highlighted the magical integration of fine food with sommeliers, growers, and artists.

Road Trips Foodies within range might want to stop by at 4 p.m. November 18, 2014. Jan Longone, adjunct curator of culinary history at U-M Library, will talk about the exhibit.
