The Saveur 100 includes Istanbul chef Musa Dagdeviren. See his recipe for a Turkish wedding dish below the list.

In many ways the people who work for the food and travel magazine Saveur are like culinary detectives — always on the hunt for new edible delights.

Since they can't include every treasure they find in the magazine, they save the best of the rest for the Saveur 100 — an annual list of "favorite restaurants, food, drink, people, places and things." Michele Norris speaks with Colman Andrews, the magazine's editor-in-chief about the list.
