Jane and Michael Stern's "Gourmet Magazine" articles Tue, 04/19/11 10:45 AM (permalink)
I came across this and thought it would be of interest for those who have never read all of these articles.

    Greymo - Great idea to do that search.
     
    Are you sure that is all the Stern's articles?  I seem to think they were writing for Gourmet for a much longer time.

      It's not all of them.

        MiamiDon,  you are correct.  I was so excited to find this that I posted it  using the word "All".  I  shall have to edit that.  I wish that Michael Stern could tell us a way to find every article that they have written for Gourmet.  It would be great rereading them.

          It is a lot of them! Gourmet was a lovely place to work. We started writing monthly in 1994 (first story: meat and three at Hap Townes in Nashville). At that time our column was usually 3000-4000 words. As time went on, attention-spans shortened (as did revenues and page counts) and by the end, we were lucky to get 800-1000 words.  Of course, now you can read us regularly in the wonderful Saveur.

            My wife and I happened to pick up a fairly complete collection of Gourmet (and Bon Appetit) going back into the late 1980's (a Craigslist freebee, the guy was going to toss them if could find a taker).
             
            I was tempted to find, cut-out, and bind all the Stern's Roadfood articles. Now I know where to start looking.

              Michael Stern - Did you write for Gourmet on a non-monthly basis before 1994?

                Greymo-
                Thanks so much for posting this link.  It should be really enjoyable to go back and read some of my favorites or catch up on ones I missed.

                  I have been searching and searching and this is the only other Gourmet  article that I could find.

                    I subscribed to gourmet for many years, and it got to the point where the first thing I always read was the Road column. Definitely allowed me to vicariously travel and eat in a way I had never done before.

                      I, too, enjoyed the Roadfood contributions in Gourmet for many years. When they decided to quit, and offered B.A.,, I said B-A-A!, and quit the whole bunch. There's plenty of material on line to satisfy me, first and foremost my daily fix of Roadfood.

                        MiamiDon; no, we wrote nothing for Gourmet before they asked us to write a story about a diner (O'Rourke's), which they liked so much that they hired us to do the column. Hap Townes was the first that ran. I believe the O'Rourke's column was a few months later.
