Newburg sauce is a very rich sauce of cream, butter, egg yolks and sherry that is used for seasoning any kind of shellfish. This sauce was created by a chef of Delmonico Restaurant and named after sea captain Ben Wenburg, who was a frequent guest there. But Wenburg and the manager of the restaurant had a quarrel, that is why Mr. Wenburg demanded his name to be removed from the menu. As far as this tasty sauce couldn't be forever forgotten, the manager decided to change its name to Newburg. This is how the famous Newburg sauce was created.
