I am Oscar (of the Waldorf Astoria) Tschirky’s great granddaughter…the recipe for “Oscar’s Sauce” that I have is very different from the one you have a copy of. Also, please note, that he was the Maitre d”hotel NOT (and never was) a chef. Would be happy to share, if anyone is interested.

I would love to have the original recipe. A version of this sauce was made by an elderly friend and I want to recreate it for her.

My mother and grandmother used to can great batches of Oscar Sauce back in the 1960’s and we’d have it all year long. I just thought about it this morning and wondered if I could find the recipe on the Web, but this one isn’t like the one we had. I would love to have the original one as I think it’s probably closer to what mom and grandma made. Thank you so much.

I would love to have the original Oscar Sauce recipe, also.
How is used in recipes? Or, on what type of food do you serve it?
