Saveur Adds Associate Publisher

Kristin Cohen has been named Associate Publisher of Saveur magazine, a position she held previously. Cohen was most recently working as a Vice President of Business Development for Intellivent Group, a food marketing firm.

“Kristin’s success with the title is shown not only by sheer numbers but in her strategic thinking as we deliver our partners a complementary platform for their brands and an engaged audience in whatever medium in which they choose to consume it,” explained Ernie Renzulli, Bonnier Vice President, Group Publisher.

“I’m thrilled to rejoin Saveur, a team and brand for which I am beyond passionate,” said Cohen. “With unwavering editorial direction over the last 18 years, the brand has persevered and grown in the emerging media environment.”

Saveur Takes Over Shake Shack To Celebrate Burger Issue

saveur1.jpgHere’s some proof that magazine parties aren’t dead. We just got back from munching on yummy burgers and crinkle-cut fries at Saveur‘s party celebrating its August issue, which is all about burgers. Of course, the shindig took place at one of New York’s hippest burger establishments: Shake Shake on the Upper West Side.

saveur2.jpgIn between mini servings of cheeseburgers, fries and shakes (we recommend the basil), we chatted with publisher Merri Lee Kingsly, who has been working to close the magazine’s October ad pages. “It looks like we’re going to be up 10 percent,” she said. “Maybe more.”

We also managed to catch editor in chief James Oseland before he ran back to the office. We picked his brain about his recent stint judging on Bravo’s “Top Chef Masters.” Yes, the food on the show really is that good, he said. “It’s amazing because some of these chefs are used to working with a staff of 20 people,” he said. “They’re not used to chopping onions, let alone working in an unfamiliar kitchen.”

Saveur also had another thing to celebrate this week: the launch of its newly designed Web site. Kingsly said there were the usual glitches when it first launched on Monday, but things seem to be running smoothly now, allowing the magazine’s staff to relax, kick back and enjoy a burger.
