Video: How Do You Pronounce Saveur?

We've often mentioned that Saveur is one of our favorite food magazines, and we were so happy to learn last year that they like us too, but we're going to let you in on a secret: we've never been totally sure how to pronounce the magazine's name.

Luckily, the folks at Saveur made this video to help out us hapless readers.

Shot at the magazine's holiday party, it features chefs, writers and guests telling the camera how they say "Saveur." Guess what? Nearly everyone has a different pronunciation. Editor-in-chief James Oseland finally steps in at the end and gives the definitive pronunciation, along with a handy cat-related mnemonic.

It turns out we've been pretty close all along. How about you? Have you ever wondered how to pronounce "Saveur"?
