From the back cover: Gourmet magazine arrived on newsstands in January 1941. Publisher Earl R.
MacAusland began the inaugural issue by writing, “Good food and good living
have always been a great American tradition.” For the next six decades, Gourmet
documented America’s growing fascination, and increasingly complicated relationship
with food. Gourmet’s illustrated covers of the 1940s and ‘50s allow us to, in the words
of the publisher, “recapture the mellow moods and manners of a bygone day which
unashamedly followed the pursuit of happiness in such admirable fashion.”
