Gourmet Magazine: A Retrospective

. November 1, 2014.

Before the Food Network and Epicurious, there was Gourmet Magazine, curator of sophisticated dining ideas, hosting trends, and the lowdown on culinary tourism.

And on November 18, from 4 to 6pm, Jan Longone, adjunct curator of culinary history at U-M Library, will discuss the exhibit The Life and Death of Gourmet—The Magazine of Good Living.

Allow time to view the exhibit before the lecture. Hatcher Graduate Library 913 S. University Avenue, Ann Arbor, room 100,
