Gourmet Magazine

In 1993, Gourmet Magazine approached Jane and Michael write a story about a diner, and they were impressed with their work on O’Rourke’s. As a result, they were hired to produce a monthly column featuring their favorite Roadfood restaurants. They wrote for Gourmet until its closure in 2009, a fantastic opportunity, especially considering that most of the establishments they featured were unconcerned with fancy food magazine recognition. Over the years, America’s attitudes towards food underwent a dramatic transformation. Their column received three James Beard Journalism Awards, and many of the once-obscure restaurants and regional specialties they covered were acknowledged as integral to the country’s unique culinary identity.
