saveur cookbook club archive


Saveur Magazine has been a respected reference of regional and global cuisines for decades, offering an authentic look at cooking around the world. Their cookbook club is led by three editors (associate digital editor Katherine Whittaker, senior associate editor Alex Testere, and test kitchen manager Kat Craddock) who each take turns selecting the monthly cookbook and moderating the group. Selections are widely varied with titles old and new, representing many international cuisines.

To participate: Most participation happens on Facebook. Join the Saveur Cookbook Club Facebook group to post photos and comments, or post to Instagram using hashtag #saveurmagazinecookbookclub. A fun (and underpromoted) component to the club is a monthly photo competition on Facebook. The editors select a winning photo from the community and offer a cookbook prize. (I won once for a photo of a dish from the Poole’s restaurant cookbook.)
