It’s all about the Sauce

By on August 4, 2017

Did you know that adding thin strips of citrus zest to a sauce or gravy will enhance the flavor?  Sauce Master Jules Silver of Club Sauce recommends using lemon or lime as a compliment to grilled meats, chicken, or fish.

Passionate about Sauce

Jules is passionate about sauce, and wants you to experience a world flavored by his creations.   He has dedicated himself to the world of sauce for over 14 years, creating his own distinctive line of six pomegranate reduction sauces.

The inspiration for these sauces came from the public’s demand for foods that are natural, healthy, and limited in added sweeteners, preservatives, and fillers. “It is my belief that I have answered that request with one of the most recognized, nutritious and healthy fruits, pomegranate.  At the same time, I have maintained all the healthy attributes that it has to offer,” says Jules.



In fact, MarXana Brand Foods is the only manufacturer and retailer of all-natural pomegranate reduction sauces in the United States.  The uniqueness of each flavor makes them a perfect finishing sauce or addition to a variety of recipes from salad dressings to desserts.

So, from one Sauce Master to other aspiring connoisseurs, let’s start making your dishes all about the sauce!

When making chocolate demi glace, or any other sauce, avoid using cooking wines as much as possible.  Salt is often added to these wines as a preservative. Use a good quality wine.  It’s worth it!

Here, the two are combined to give you a rich taste with an unusual twist –a demi glace sauce finished with chocolate, perfect for roasted or grilled red meats, wild game such as venison, elk, boar and buffalo meats.
