Now in it's 13th year, Sauce Magazine has been enhancing readers' knowledge of and excitement for the St. Louis area culinary scene by delivering the most relevant insights on dining, home-cooking, drinking and entertainment.
Sauce's original feature articles, reviews, recipes and interviews are the result of deeply rooted relationships with chefs, restaurateurs, purveyors, mixologists, sommeliers, culinary innovators and home cooking enthusiasts. This affords the Sauce team unique access to stories that engage and influence our readership - one of which received a prestigious FOLIO: Ozzie Award Gold medal in 2011 for outstanding feature photography. Sauce columnist Kellie Hynes was awarded Best Food Column in the country by the Association of Food Journalists in 2013. Sauce contributing writer Stacy Schultz was a finalist for a 2013 AFJ award which recognizes excellence in food writing and editing in the category of Best Newspaper Food Feature and she earned the prestigious M.F.K. Fisher Award from Les Dames d'Escoffier Int'l (LDEI) for her piece, Lox of Love . And, in 2008, our Prep School column was nominated for a prestigious James Beard Foundation Journalism Award in the category of Food Related Columns.
Like many of the establishments featured in the pages of Sauce every month, we are a locally owned entity - the only independent culinary publication in STL - driven by a love for food and a dedication to quality journalism. Since its inception in 1999 as an online restaurant guide, Sauce Magazine has garnered a loyal following of food-lovers in the St. Louis metro area and across the country.
Sauce is the most widely distributed monthly magazine in St. Louis, with an average readership of 300,000 per month and a reach of 50+ miles. It is freely distributed and available for pickup in over 750 restaurants, bars and retailers across the metro area. Sauce also offers in-home delivery subscriptions.
In addition to Sauce Magazine, saucemagazine.com provides timely insights on all things food related. Our weekly e-newsletter, Edible Weekend also provides readers with everything they need to have a food-filled weekend around town. And, our robust social media interactions extend the Sauce connection via Facebook and Twitter to over 41,000 loyal fans and followers.
The Sauce team is exceptionally proud of our continued commitment to the community and the partners we serve. Our efforts over the last year have resulted in exclusive partnerships with St. Louis Public Radio | 90.7 KWMU, and Foodspotting.com. Sauce is also host and creator of the FOLIO award winning event series Food Truck Fridays, The Sauce Celebrity Chef Series, and the annual Saucy Soiree. Additionally, we have exclusive sponsorships with partners like the Taste of St. Louis, A Tasteful Affair, Lydia's House, Art Dimensions, Taste of Maplewood, St. Louis Art Museum, Clayton Restaurant Week, Koman Dining Out For The Cure, Cardinal Glennon and Urbainaire, among others.
