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." www.saveur.com
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!
