Don't omit a brace of Lincolnshire sausages and a hand-full of mushrooms, grown in an old Beeching-cuts disused railway tunnel.

And of course, good honest black-pudding from "uup Noorf."

Now you're talking Breakfast.

Scramble the eggs for best effect... that doesn't need any Worcestershire sauce though.

We went to a wedding recently, in Sheffield, and, on each table, there was a bottle of Henderson’s Relish per couple to take away.
It’s not a patch (despite the Sheffielder’s protestations) on Lea and Perrins.
...but unlike the bog standard. L&P it is suitable for vegans.

I always made a point of cooking this for prospective girlfriends who would inevitably ask what the sauce was called. Well, I call it "knickerdropper" sauce and it never failed.

Thank you Lea & Perrins.

Mr Fraser, sah !
Ahem !.... point of culinary horder...... perleese ! For future reference, one does not" progressively add " , one infuses... or drizzles.......thank you. Anyway, Ln P can be added to any concoction such is the versatility of said sauce such as our home made BBQ sauce ..sod the industrial version.....love the stuff.

By the way, what happens if said prospective girl friend says she's a vegetarian when your creative talents are laid before her ?

A preferred ingredient in Shepherds or Cottage pie for my taste, shouldnt it have a sort of applellation controlle attached to it or are the ingredients mostly from elsewhere and any one know why Worcestershire Sauce, is it for example very good with neighbouring Double Gloucester cheese?

Anything dipped in L&P is good.
L&P Poured over anything is good.

I think that you are confusing L&P with HP Sauce.
HP production has moved to Holland.

From a Redcar Lad that lived in Worcester.

As for this Yorkshire Relish, the YR stuff from Dublin looks like a brown sauce but the Yorkshire Relish looks thin. Which is the one being lauded?
YR is a thick brown sauce by different manufacturer. Different ingredients too. The YR obviously hints at Yorkshire Relish but the actual relish is quite different.

I love Worcestershire Sauce. Be aware of imitations though. Only Lea & Perrins will do,

There’s a programme in the UK on Ch 5 @2000 tonight ‘starring’ former MP John Prescott and the first half appears to be a tour of the L&P factory showing us how Worcester Sauce is made.

I think I have to make a grovelling apology to anyone I’ve persuaded to watch Ch5 tonight.
The programme was not that good with some really ham acting from the former Deputy Prime Minister and his spouse !
G-CPTN - your video links were so much better for anyone interested in the actual production of L&P
Rgds,

Apologies up front as this could be deemed as sacrilege to some.

I continued on what my late father started in using Holbrook's "Wooster-shire" sauce - or as he used to call it - black sauce. I never even knew L&P existed, but the internet hadn't been invented then.
According to this article, history of Holbrooks Worcestershire | Let's Look Again it started in Birmingham, moved to Worcestershire, expanded to Australia and South Africa, and disappeared from the UK.

Great on a well done steak, chips, eggs, backed beans and even in a spaghetti sauce.

Not sure if L&P is available in Oz or if it's the real deal.

L&P is available in Oz, as is Holbrooks. L&P is infinitely superior.

I always liked the American pronunciation of WS. It goes something like:

WOO SESTER SHERE SOURCE.

So wait...you have a product with about 20 extra letters in its name, but you mock those who say it like it is written?

Must be the French influence.
