As we reported, this month's issue of Saveur is full of culinary suggestions from some of the world's greatest chefs (including a few of L.A.'s own like Sang Yoon and David Myers.) It's a compelling read, but the magazine's difficult-to-pronounce title can make it more daunting to request at a newsstand than an issue of Juggs. It turns out we're not the only ones struggling with pronunciation. In this charming video, made by Saveur's website director Ganda Suthivarakom at the magazine's holiday party, the savvy sophisticates of the New York food world show that they struggle with pronunciation too. Be sure to watch through to the end where Editor-in-Chief (and former Weekly copy editor) James Oseland, schools us on how to say Saveur once and for all.
