F&W celebrates its 35th anniversary throughout March. For more fun clips from the archives (like legend Julia Child looking badass), follow us on Instagram #FW35th @foodandwinemag. Here, the trends that came and went.

“Floribbean” Cuisine
In the late ’80s, F&W proclaimed that Floribbean food and cocktails were here to stay.

Southwestern Food
“The Southwest is hot!” F&W exclaimed in 1987. This is still true; just not the food.

Creole & Cajun
Jambalaya and gumbo are classics, but they’re not “state of the art eating,” as F&W reported in 1989.

Sun-Dried Tomatoes
Along with Camembert and pasta salad, a talisman of the high life from the Reagan era.

Baby Veggies
Itty-bitty vegetables seem to reappear on menus (and in F&W) every five years or so. The last time was 2008.
