Jane and Michael Stern's "Gourmet Magazine" articles

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.

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 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.

It appears that the previous links shown above are now dead. But I did find this list of Gourmet articles by the Stern's that are still accessible. The links are pretty complete for everything from 2003 until Gourmet ceased publication in 2009.
 
I finally started my project to catalog all the articles by Jane & Michael that are in our collection of magazines. The project will support a presentation that Bobbi & I will give in July to our Armchair Travelers group about Roadfooding as an activity for retirees. We are hearing a lot of positive interest in Roadfood. 
 
I am filling up a spreadsheet with entries from the 1994 thru 2009 Gourmets. Some of the earlier issues are hiding on me, but I'm pretty sure they are somewhere in the basement. Some great stuff in there on many Roadfood favorites. Great writing that is longer than the single page reviews in our Roadfood books.

JRPfeff was kind enough to email me the article on Al's Breakfast and I've already read it three times.  For anyone who loves Roadfood, going back and reading the Gourmet columns is a must!
