PREVIEW: The Life and Death of Gourmet – The Magazine of Good Living EXHIBITION


Life and Death of CookingThe joys of cooking need not remain behind the confines of kitchen walls, especially when you can explore the history of a major food magazine: Gourmet.

As the U of M library states “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.” In other words, they were the hipsters of food magazines.

When: Now! until November 28th, 10 am – 5 pm each day. For the full schedule check this link.
