Sauce Magazine

Now in its 21st year, 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. 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 in the category of Best Newspaper Food Feature. The annual food writing competition recognizes excellence in food writing and editing. 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 255,000 per month and a reach of 50+ miles. It is freely distributed and available for pickup in over 800 restaurants, bars, and retailers across the metro area. Sauce also offers in-home delivery subscriptions.
