Fischer and Wieser Sauce Post

Gourmet Sauce

I’m always on the look out for new pasta sauces to try and new dipping sauces to add to my cabinet. When I found out about Fischer and Wieser, I knew I had to try some of their products and jumped at the chance to sample their items.

According to , husband and wife, Joseph and Estella Wieser bought “60 acres of land on the southern edge of Fredericksburg, Texas” to build their business. They continued their family business for four decades and their son Mark Wieser carried on their dream and “passion for gourmet eating.” A decade after taking on the business, one of Mark’s students, Case Fischer grew a passion for the family business and after going away to college to study, he returned to become a business partner. The rest is, as they say it, history and Fischer and Wieser is the #1 gourmet food company in Texas. I just scratched the surface on the company’s history, so I highly recommend you and read it in full detail. It will make you love their food even more!

I had the chance to try their sweet-heat mustard, their Garlic Marinara pasta sauce, and their Hot Habenero Salsa. Each was a very unique experience, although if I had to select a favorite it would be the Sweet Heat Mustard!

First, their Garlic Marinara pasta sauce. I tried it over baked chicken that I made and it was excellent! I didn’t taste TOO strong of a garlic flavor, which might be good for some of you, because for me, I tend to overdo it (I put like three or four cloves of fresh garlic over my spaghetti!). But I think this was a wonderful way to enhance the parmesan chicken that I had made, it didn’t overwhelm the other flavors, so it was just what I was looking for.

Next was the Hot Habenero Salsa! This wasn’t as hot as I feared! Which was a very good thing because I have the tendency to buy hot salsa that is just way too hot. This was spicy, but allowed you for the chance to actually, you know, taste your food instead of having your tongue get burned off and not being able to taste a thing.

Finally, the sweet-heat mustard. Honestly, my favorite of all three and this mustard I would make an active effort to go online later and purchase some for myself. I had some over broccoli and it made me LOVE the vegetable. This mustard made me want to drench everything with the stuff.

Dave’s Gourmet – Gourmet Pasta Sauce Review and Giveaway [Ends 4/6]

gourmet pasta sauce

I must admit – I’m a little finicky when it comes to pasta sauce, so I couldn’t wait to taste Dave’s Gourmet gourmet pasta sauce.

But first, I must tell you a little bit . Like I’ve said before, I love a company with a unique starting history, and they are no different. After discovering hot sauce tamed the wild beast of an ugly drunk in a bar, Dave went out to create the hottest hot sauce in the world. From there came “Insanity” hot sauce which eventually became banned for being TOO hot (how about them apples!). 13 years later, Dave’s Gourmet has gone from being a hot sauce specialty company to being a specialty food company that sells gourmet pasta sauces, drink mixes, spices, and so much more.

I received two bottles of the Garlic and Sweet Basil Gourmet Pasta Sauce to try and let me tell you this, not too long after finishing off those bottles did I go out and buy two more bottles! First of all, they smelled great – it smelled just like you want pasta sauce to taste like – spicy, but sweet and very tomato-y. Also, it’s rich tasting but not too thick, which I really like.

I did a really simple meal of gluten free noodles with the sauce (I also add some oregano, olive oil, red pepper flakes and parmesan too!) and it’s such a simple, tasty, easy dinner. And boy did this sauce win me over! You can actually SEE the garlic pieces in the sauce and I loved every bit of it. I literally cleaned my plate and probably would have licked it if that wasn’t rude.

Probably the only minor downside to this gourmet pasta sauce, if there is any at all, is the price tag. It usually sells for about $8.99 a bottle. So this isn’t for anyone on a budget looking to save money as this is a little out of the price range I usually buy, but let me tell you, this is worth and it’s just as good as anything homemade.
