Big Green Egg in Saveur!!

We subscribe to 2 food magazines: Saveur and Cooks Illustrated. Last month CI dropped the ball when they gave a review of the egg. The reviewer totally missed the concept of ceramic cooking and his assessment boiled down to hogwash.

Ironically, the latest Saveur, which arrived today, has a very, very nice article on the bge and placed it prominently in front of the magazine. They obviously get the concept of ceramics and go so far as to call Ed Fisher, "... the high priest of a grilling cult..."

Saveur is a beautiful magazine that features great foods, photos and stories about food from all over the world. All of the recipes I've tried from Saveur have turned out great. Who knows, maybe this article will help boost subscriptions from eggers.

    Having worked with many an art director, they will do most anything to make a shot more interesting... even if it doesn't make any sense. Good eye!

    unless i'm blind (which is arguable), it doesn't even look like the egg is set correctly in the nest.

  • I got a call today from a friend who subcribes to Saveur. She could't wait to tell me the egg was featured. Thanks for posting the article.

    Happily egging on my original large BGE since 1996... now the owner of 6 eggs. Call me crazy, everyone else does!

    We're down to three food magazines now. When we're finally down to one it will be Saveur.

    I have always enjoyed the magazine, great writing, and recipes with attainable results. The Editor is also a judge on Top Chef Masters, fyi. ;)
