You really can't make a quality stew without a little Worcestershire sauce. A Bloody Mary or Caesar is just a boozy tomato drink without it. A dash in a Bolognese can work wonders. In fact, it has been said that a few drops behind the ears will drive the ladies wild.
But I just noticed my Lea & Perrins says "expert blenders since 1837". This piqued my curiosity and I learned that time and maturation was as vital to this tasty condiment as to great whisky. I also learned that it's not for vegetarians.
Forgive the pronunciation, but worth a watch.
