Worcester Sauce (also known as Worcestershire Sauce) is a spicy sauce with origins in the UK. It is characterised by its strong and complex flavour, which includes saltiness, sweetness, sourness, spiciness and umami. This sauce is used to flavour and enliven a variety of dishes. The sauce is traditionally fermented and aged, which helps to develop and combine the different flavours and aromas. After fermentation, the sauce is filtered and bottled. In addition to its original use in British cuisine, Worcester Sauce has also become a popular ingredient in international dishes.

In stuffings and soups: It is used in the preparation of stuffings and soups where it contributes to the complexity of flavour.
The history of Worcester Sauce dates back to the 19th century. It was developed in England by the Lea & Perrins brothers who accidentally created this sauce while trying to reproduce an Indian sauce they saw at a Bengali governor's house. The sauce was at first unappreciated but soon became popular and quickly spread around the world. Today, Worcester Sauce is widely available in stores and used in kitchens around the world.
