For over a decade, Sauce Magazine has been enhancing readers' knowledge of and excitement for the St. Louis 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. 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 circulation of 70,000 and a reach of 50+ miles. It is freely distributed and available for pickup in over 900 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 29,000 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, BUILD St. Louis 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 at The Four Seasons Hotel. Additionally, we have exclusive sponsorships with partners like the Taste of St. Louis, A Tasteful Affair, Lydia's House, Art Dimensions, Taste of Maplewood, Clayton Restaurant Week, Koman Dining Out For The Cure, and Urbainaire, among others.
