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 Gourmet. 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.

The exhibit is on display Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Jan Longone, adjunct curator of culinary history at U-M Library, talks about the exhibit on November 18 at 4 p.m. in the Hatcher Library Gallery.
