This interview will be on “St. Louis on the Air” over the noon hour Friday. This story will be updated after the show. You can listen live.

Month after month, Sauce Magazine joins our program for a monthly Sound Bites segment to showcase the latest food trends and highlight local chefs, farmers, restaurateurs and more. 

On Friday’s St. Louis on the Air, host Sarah Fenske will delve into the history of the food publication itself, which launched in St. Louis in 1999 when the Internet was still in its infancy. Twenty years later, Sauce Magazine is still going strong, and a huge reason is publisher Allyson Mace, who remains with the publication to this day. 

Mace will join the program along with the magazine’s longtime art director, Meera Nagarahan, and restaurateur Bill Cardwell, known for his beloved St. Louis-area restaurants, including Cardwell’s At The Plaza
