You're Not the Only One Who Can't Pronounce Saveur

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.

    In Los Angeles especially, but increasingly across the country, restaurants are either switching to tasting menus, putting a greater focus on a tasting-menu option (while offering à la carte items as well), or opening as tasting-menu operations from day one. The format that used to be the calling card of only the fanciest of restaurants is becoming ubiquitous, even at places where the waiter calls you “dude” and there isn’t a white tablecloth in sight.
  • Milo's Kitchen: A Treat Truck for Dogs
    Milo's Kitchen, a part of California-based Big Heart Pet Brands, is taking its homestyle dog treats on the road this summer with the "Treat Truck." The dogified food truck is making stops all over the country, ending up in New York early September. The truck stopped at Redondo Beach Dog Park Friday morning entertaining the pups with treats, a photo-booth and play zone. Milo's Kitchen Treat Truck offered samples of the line's six flavors, all with chicken or beef as the first ingredient, and all made in the U.S.A. with no artificial colors or preservatives.
