Barbecue, Circa 1958

June 1, 2016


It’s July 1958, and Gourmet is throwing a barbecue.  But this is Gourmet, this is the fifties, and this is a “High Style Barbecue.”  No burgers and franks in sight.

Instead, you get duckling, stuffed shrimp and Chateaubriand. 

Of course.

    “Brown sauce”?
    Kinda vague…
    Those shrimp would be tough as nails with all that boiling
    and barbecue! How times have changed!
    Thank you for this fun summer reminder!
