SAVEUR’s 25th Anniversary Celebration
Contributors past and present gathered to fête a quarter century of Saveur.
Chefs, photographers, writers, and longtime friends of Saveur recently gathered to celebrate the magazine’s 25th anniversary at our Manhattan headquarters. The guest list included a lively assortment of contributors old and new, including chef Jonathan Waxman, founding creative director Michael Grossman, writer and cookbook author Ted Lee , and current editor-in-chief Sarah Gray Miller. Chefs and restaurateurs Andrew Carmellini, Jimmy Bradley, and Justin Smillie were also in attendance.
On the menu: the late contributor Johnny Apple’s leg of lamb with an herb-garlic crust, a smoked trout hash (made with trout from Acme Smoked Fish in Brooklyn) developed by former test kitchen director Hunter Lewis (now editor-in-chief of Food & Wine), chef Martin Yan’s signature scallion pancakes, and pralines inspired by Loretta Harrison of Loretta’s Authentic Pralines in New Orleans—all recipes published in the anniversary issue. An oyster and caviar sampling by Island Creek Oysters set a festive tone, alongside Talbott Vineyards wines, champagne from Nicolas Feuillatte, and signature cocktails by WhistlePig Whiskey. Here are a few memorable moments from the evening’s festivities:
