Saveur, the French word for “flavor,” was chosen by Dorothy Kalins as the title of her newly launched food magazine back in 1994. Cofounded with Christopher Hirsheimer and Colman Andrews, all three had previously worked together on the Metropolitan Home magazine.
As a gourmet food, wine, and travel magazine based in New York City, Saveur specializes in essays about various world cuisines. Their slogan Savor a world of authentic cuisine is considered a nod to more classic culinary traditions versus the fleeting food trends.
