The History of Sauce

The History of Sauce Once a method for covering up rotten foods and now a way to elevate the deliciousness of a meal, sauces have long served a culinary purpose. No matter where you are in the world, your cuisine most likely calls for a sauce in certain recipes. Is it too much to say that a sauce can define a culture? I don’t think so. Sauce, like so many other foods, is representative of the food our land can grow, the...

A Saucey Affair, A Sauce Success

A Saucey Affair, A Sauce Success You may remember my post from couple weeks back “10 Ways Sauce Can Save a Life.” Well, that post was in anticipation of the 9Health Fair Fundraiser, which I attended last Thursday night here in Denver. The event featured 16 local restaurants and one of their small plate creations that included a sauce, hence the name of the event — A Saucey Affair. Seeing how this is a great cause and...

A Great Day for Potato Pancakes and Sweet Curry Yogurt Sauce

A Great Day for Potato Pancakes and Sweet Curry Yogurt Sauce I woke up, the sky was blue, and my stomach growled. Already thinking about breakfast, I jumped out of bed when I remembered my leftover potato pancakes and sweet yogurt curry sauce…. From burger toppings to potato pancakes, I think sweet yogurt curry makes for an excellent addition to foods that fall outside of South Asian cuisine. Don’t get me wrong–the traditional curry, or tamil, you...

Beer Me, Colorado. I’m Hungry for Dip.

Beer Me, Colorado. I’m Hungry for Dip. Every year since 1982 the Great American Beer Festival has given Coloradoans and visitors a chance to sample thousands of brews.  I was lucky enough to attend a few years back, and I sampled my fair share. I also stood in the friggin’ long lines for the bathroom. You know you’ll be drinking great beer, but nothing prepares you for that sea of port-o-potties.To help get this year’s...

Tzatziki Sauce Harder to Say than Make

Tzatziki Sauce Harder to Say than Make You know I love Mediterranean and Middle Eastern foods. The garlic, the tahini, and all that dipping and saucing makes it one of my most craved cuisines. But pronouncing it, well, that’s a tough one for me. My Midwestern accent means there’s nothing sexy about me saying tzatziki. Pronounced tsah-ZEE-kee, it is a cold sauce and can be eaten as a dip, too. For example, a little tzatiki on pita...

Enchilada Sauce: Bringing Cultures Together

Enchilada Sauce: Bringing Cultures Together I know Mexico and Spain have different cuisines, but when I made a Spanish tortilla I was at a loss for complementing the dish with a sauce. Every time I’ve eaten Spanish tortilla it was sans sauce, so I could’ve have just eaten it solo, but c’mon. Who do you think you’re talking to? I am the Saucy Dipper. My friend over over at My Morning Chocolate suggested romesco sauce, which...

Turns Out I Know How to Make Bechamel Sauce and I Still Don’t Like Eggplant

Turns Out I Know How to Make Bechamel Sauce and I Still Don’t Like Eggplant Based on this picture you can probably guess that I made a Middle Eastern-themed meal big enough for 12 people, not two. I spent three hours in the kitchen cooking up hummus, baba ganoush, tzatziki sauce, falafal, and moussaka (with béchamel sauce). My motivation for making this feast came in part from my urge to use my new immersion blender, part because I wanted to make one of the five mother sauces,...

New York City Dipping and Saucing

New York City Dipping and Saucing When you tell someone that you will be visiting New York City, you can count on hearing this: “Oh, I know this great restaurant in [enter Manhattan neighborhood name here]. You have to go. They have the best [name a comfort food or obscure type of fusion here] and the best [cocktail type here] I’ve ever had.” Jason (my husband) and I travel in a way that’s not-so-ordinary. Our jobs...

A Fine Place to Dip. Iowa, You Rock.

A Fine Place to Dip. Iowa, You Rock. I recently visited family in Iowa and forced them to endure my Saucy Dippiness. I don’t think they minded, though. At least I saw them take seconds and willingly take leftovers home, which leads me to believe they enjoyed themselves. But then again, my mom and nephew did a lot of the cooking, so they probably weren’t as scared as they could’ve been. Three things made this day a special...
