Saveur Magazine

Saveur is a gourmet, food, wine, and travel magazine that specializes in essays about various world cuisines. Its slogan — Savor a World of Authentic Cuisine — signals the publication’s focus on enduring culinary traditions, as opposed to ephemeral food trends. Celebrated for its distinctive, naturalistic style of food photography and vivid writing, Saveur has been notable for placing food in its cultural context, and the magazine’s popularity has coincided with a growing interest among American readers in the stories behind the way the world eats. The publication was co-founded by Dorothy Kalins, Michael Grossman, Christopher Hirsheimer, and Colman Andrews, who was also the editor-in-chief from 1996 to 2001. It was started by Meigher Communications in 1994. World Publications bought Saveur and Garden Design in 2000. World Publications was renamed Bonnier Corporation in 2007. A popular feature is the "Saveur 100", an annual list of "favorite restaurants, food, drink, people, places and things". [1]
