Worcestershire Sauce


John Brooks, Editor

Worcestershire sauce is a well-known sauce it is very sophisticated in its own right.

Worcestershire sauce is a fermented liquid condiment created in the city of Worcester in Worcestershire, England, during the first half of the 19th century. The creators were the pharmacists John Wheeley Lea and William Henry Perrins, who went on to form the company, Lea & Perrins. Worcestershire sauce has been a generic term since 1876 when the English High Court of Justice ruled that Lea & Perrins did not own a trademark for the name Worcestershire.

Worcestershire sauce is frequently used to augment recipes such as Caesar salad, Oysters Kirkpatrick, and deviled eggs. As a flavor and a source, it is now also added to dishes that did not contain it, such as chili con carne and beef stew. It is also used directly on steaks, hamburgers, and other dishes that are done on their own.

And with that do you think you will start using it?
