The Sauce: The Flavor that Changed Everything Cookbook
It’s been twenty years since Fischer & Wieser, a then-small specialty foods company born on a Fredericksburg, Texas, peach orchard in 1969, experimented with combining raspberry with a still-unknown dried and smoked jalapeno called a “chipotle.” The rest is big, bold flavor history. In this book, Case Fischer and Mark Wieser share the unexpected journey that grew from their discovery, which pointed their company toward today’s hundred-fifty or so products and pointed chipotle toward mainstream fame. With equal surprise, and an assist from veteran food author John DeMers and culinary instructor Nancy Marr, they propose fresh ways to apply The Original Roasted Raspberry Chipotle Sauce to recipes from appetizers to salads, main dishes to dessert. What Case Fischer and Mark Wieser now call their Culinary Adventure actually got serious with… The Sauce.
As depicted in beautiful photographs by Leo Aguirre, the dishes showcased here include the single most traditional use – you “just pour it on” cream cheese and serve with crackers for a delicious party nibble. But that doesn’t begin to anticipate Salmon Quesadillas, Grilled Corn Salad, Pork Chop Piperade or Molten Chocolate Cake. And it certainly doesn’t foresee a series of cocktails given excitement by what the book declares “the flavor that changed everything.” If you love a good yarn, filled with challenge, ambition and eventual triumph, or if you simply love to cook recipes with exciting new flavors, The Sauce is the book for you.
