Gourmet is a period-32 oscillator that was discovered by David Buckingham on March 4, 1978.[1] In terms of its 66 cells, it is currently the smallest known period 32 oscillator. It consists of four cis-boat with tails and four aircraft carriers hassling a pi-heptomino.

Despite gourmet's similarity with Tanner's p46, the latter was not discovered until 2017.
