"Savor a world of authentic cuisine." ~ Saveur Magazine

If you have looked at the sidebar of my blog - you will see that I have shared any number of links to "foodie" sites that I enjoy.  I love to look at them, and also have a fondness for "foodie" magazines - I love the pictures, the stories, the recipes.  One of my favorite magazines is Saveur, and if you follow me on Pinterest, you know that many of the recipes that I pin come straight from Saveur.

Saveur was . . . "Created to satisfy the hunger for genuine information about food in all its contexts, the magazine emphasizes heritage and tradition, home cooking and real food, evoking flavors from around the world (including forgotten pockets of culinary excellence in the United States). It celebrates the cultures and environments in which dishes are created and the people who create them. It serves up rich, satisfying stories that are complex, defining and memorable."

Because of it's focus on international cuisine, my BITE group (But Is This Edible?) enjoys reading and referring to Saveur as we choose our menu items.  In fact, our group recently made the donation of a three-year subscription to our local library.

Another thing that I enjoy about the magazine is that it hosts an online contest for "best food blogs" every year.  This is how I often learn about blogs I haven't heard of before - it's a great opportunity to explore what's out there!  

Check it out for yourself - you will need to register at the site in order to jump to the different blogs - but it's worth it!  There are 12 different categories, with 6 blogs per category - that's a lot of exposure to new and wonderful food sites!



  1. I savor my Saveur magazine when it comes in the mail. The stories have to be digested in one long sitting so it might be days before I sit down and fully read one article from beginning to end. I do miss the style of photography from the old Bon Appetite magazines but the writing in Saveur is fantastic. I have the envelope to put in the mail to renew my subscription!

  2. You are quite right - it is a magazine to be savored!

  3. I agree I love Saveur and like Sarah savor it. I though never check out the site and thanks to you, now I will xox Clarice

  4. You're a wealth of information, Tracy. Looking forward to exploring more great sites! By the way, the cornish game hens were delectable!

  5. I didn't know about them, but it sounds great! Thank you so much for the link!

    Looking very forward to your next BITE-Report! :)

    1. Stay tuned for the next BITE update - next week!
