It's June 1983, and on the cover of Gourmet two chefs in Wales head out to the kitchen garden to gather food for dinner. Early farm to table!
Inside the ads are primarily for cigarettes and booze – although there is this rather wonderful ad which says a great deal about what people worried about at the start of the eighties.
As for recipes…. this one, for a sort of Spanish chicken, impressed me as very much of its time. (Although I am puzzled by the size of the chicken; when was the last time you saw a bird this small?)
