Four New Products for Fischer & Wieser at Summer Fancy Food Show

Flavorful sauces stood out as a noteworthy trend at the specialty food industry’s
premiere show, the New York City Fancy Food Show, held recently by the Specialty Food Association. Fischer and Wieser Specialty Foods, Inc., of Fredericksburg, Texas, topped a year of innovation by launching four new sauce flavors of note at the show:

Sushi Sauce, Korean BBQ Sauce, Spicy Chile Peanut Sauce, and Ghost Pepper Sauce were all very well received at the most recent Fancy Food Show

  • Sushi Sauce – The joy of  sushi is even better with Fischer & Wieser’s Sushi Sauce! We blended sambol, soy sauce, ginger root, garlic, honey and lime in just the perfect amounts to create an excellent complement to all varieties of sushi from Nigiri to Norimaki to Inari to Temaki. Your guests will be saying “Gochisousamadeshita. Domo arigato gozaimasu. Oishikatta,” which means “Thank you VERY much. It was delicious!”

    Our sushi sauce is great on any type of sushi or sashimi!

  • Korean BBQ Sauce – Barbecue (known as Bulgogi in Korea) is a delicacy there, served only on special occasions. But we present our  authentic Korean BBQ Sauce for everyday use as a marinade, basting sauce, or stir-fry sauce for beef, pork or chicken. Once tried, it will become a pantry staple that will liven up any meal—whether grilling, stir-frying, or roasting!
  • Thinly sliced flank steak or sirloin, sliced across the grain, is marinated in our Korean BBQ Sauce then quickly grilled to create this delicious bulgogi!

  • Ghost Pepper BBQ Sauce – Grilling with friends in the back yard or off the tailgate holds a special place in our hearts, and our Ghost Pepper BBQ Sauce elevates any barbecue experience. The Ghost Chile is one of the world’s hottest peppers  with a Scoville Rating of over 1 million, compared to jalapenos which are rated from 2500 to 8000. We harnessed the Ghost Chile to deliver a sensational kick, along with complementary spices for balanced flavor. If you’re a lover of spicy food, you have just found your new favorite sauce!

    Can't do a burger any better than slathering it with our Ghost Pepper BBQ Sauce! It's also great on Hot Wings!

  • Spicy Chile Peanut Sauce – Imagine sweet, nutty flavor mingling in a rich, smokey sauce that brings meat or dessert to life. A peanut can stand on its own any day, but when we crushed and blended it with our favorite pepper, the chipotle, the pairing was perfect!  It’s a sauce so inspiring you’ll want to share it with others.

    Fischer and Wieser CEO Case D. Fischer said the new sauces are unique and flavorful. “They evoke different cultural seasonings and textures, and they each represent unique and individually enjoyable flavors,” he said.  Fischer said the four sauces are the result of a long and rigorous process at Fischer and Wieser of brainstorming, cooking and refining before bringing to market. “They are our internal finalists,”  he continued. “We start with a lot of ideas every year, cooking with new ingredients and flavor combinations with the goal of launching innovative sauces at this show. We aim to raise the bar, and this year is exciting. We think we have accomplished our goals with these launches by introducing flavors that are something special and memorable.”

    The new sauces, along with many other gourmet products, were exhibited by about 1800 specialty food companies at the New York City show. Grocers, retail store representatives, restaurant owners and culinary experts attended to discover recently launched food products, as well as refresh their memories on proven gourmet items. Food journalists also traversed the show, writing, blogging and tweeting trends that are shaping the specialty food industry.

“It’s an exciting time to be in the industry,”  Fischer stated. “This show is the start of a new season. There are many exhibitors and notable food leaders who are here, and there are exciting trends that are always the topic of conversation during and after these three days.”

The key to the deliciousness of this sauce is right in the name. Our Spicy Garlic Steak & Grilling Sauce has a wonderful garlic flavor and combination of spices that give it a nice tangy finish; it’s got just the right amount of flavor, and not too much spice. This is a steak sauce for those who appreciate flavor without major heat. Enjoy!
“For garlic lovers! This is a knock out on kabobs, grilled chicken, pork or any flavor of chops or vegetables. Just right on the spices. Mmmm!”
********************************************************************************************************
Texas is synonymous with barbeque and Fischer & Wieser honors that tradition with the authentic Texas Pit BBQ Sauce. After years of sampling pit barbeque at Texas’ most legendary joints, Fischer & Wieser perfected a sauce that pays homage to those smokehouses while introducing a unique chile, the Pasilla de Oaxaca, that is medium-hot and known for its rich-flavor.
“This is my favorite sauce! It is nicely HOT but not on fire and not too sweet.
It is my go to sauce for easy dinner that makes an impression.
Perfect complement for chicken, pork, beef and venison.”
*******************************************************************************************************
Pronounced ‘Puh-see-uh,’ this little Mexican chile is ideal for sauces. Fischer & Wieser’s ¡Especial! Pasilla Chile Finishing Sauce blends pasilla chiles with Roma tomatoes, almonds and pineapple to create your next ‘go-to’ sauce for any type of meat. Gluten Free.
“This sauce is great on chicken in a slow-cooker, especially if you love a little HEAT! Shred the chicken and wrap a flour tortilla around it for great chicken tacos!”
*******************************************************************************************************
Our Pomegranate & Mango Chipotle Sauce blends antioxidant-rich pomegranates with sweet mango and spicy chipotle peppers to make a gourmet sauce that is fat free, delicious and good for you. Top grilled chicken, roasted pork and baked fish; it also makes a great stir fry sauce. Enjoy! Gluten Free.
“This sauce is one of my favorites on hot wings! Great flavor combo with just the right amount of heat!”
*******************************************************************************************************
We are famous for combining fruit with chipotle, but bacon? Even we didn’t realize what a winner we had on our hands until we took a bite. Bacon is accented by the sizzle of chipotle peppers, sweet molasses and black pepper to create a flavorful barbecue sauce that is ideal for grilling and barbecuing. Enjoy!
THIS sauce is truly outstanding. I took a couple of bottles when visiting my “Mr. Cookout” son a while back. Now it’s his favorite!  He used the Smokehouse Bacon Chipotle to baste what he loves to cook most, grilled chicken, and it was the best! Now it’s my whole family’s favorite. Love it on grilled pork tenderloin, too.
