The Vintage “Gourmet”

As in the venerable Gourmet Magazine that has enchanted food lovers for decades. Wouldn’t it be awesome to have the issue of Gourmet from your birth month or the birth month of someone special (maybe Dad)? An anonymous donor has given the new nonprofit National Mustard Museum hundreds of Gourmet magazines dating back to as early as 1954, plus the complete bound volumes for 1947 and 1949.

This Saturday and Sunday, June 18 and 19, from 10am-5pm you can buy classic Gourmet magazines here at the National Mustard Museum. Proceeds benefit the nonprofit Museum. They are all available individually, except for the bound volumes from 1947 and 1949 which are available with all 12 issues.

And to sweeten the pot, get a free jar of Grey Poupon with each vintage magazine purchase.

If you can’t make it to Middleton but would like to have a particular issue, email the Curator to see if it is available. Prices vary, depending on the age of the magazine. Pricing is as follows:

  • up to 1959 — $10 each;
  • 1960 to 1969 — $8 each;
  • 1970 to 1979 — $6 each;
  • 1980 and on — $4 each;
  • special bound volumes from 1947 or 1949 — $125 per volume.

If buying by email we will be happy to mail your magazines to you — sorry, no free Grey Poupon with magazines sent through the mail.

Enjoy a piece of culinary history with these great magazines from the past!
