Join 5-time James Beard finalist, Chef Dan Wecker, for a Memorable Evening with his Inspired Mother of All Sauces Dinner.

Come visit us to embark on a culinary adventure with Chef Dan Wecker as he explores the mother sauces he has come to use in many of his most iconic dishes. You will not only be dazzled with the dishes he features in each of the five courses, but also astonished with his exquisite wine parings that enhance each course further.

What is a "Mother Sauce"?

A mother sauce is a foundational sauce that serves as the basis for a variety of derivative sauces. A derivative sauce is a sauce that adds ingredients and flavors to a mother sauce. Chef Dan will also refer to derivative sauces as daughter sauces, small sauces, or secondary sauces. French cuisine claims that there are five foundational mother sauces from which we form all other sauces. Each mother sauce has a unique liquid, thickening agent, and distinct flavorings. Three of the five mother sauces use a roux as their thickening agent.
