A Boost for Caesar Salad!

June 21, 2013

Vegetarian Worcestershire Sauce?  I have to admit I was skeptical.  How could anyone make decent Worcestershire sauce without anchovies, which contribute so much to the flavor? When I found this Bourbon Barrel
version I bought it out of simple curiosity . I brought it home and tasetd it against the classic Lea & Perrins that I always have in my pantry.  To my surprise, this new version blew the classic out of the water; its rich, round, warm flavor made the old one seem like a one-note wonder, and rather acrid to boot. The Bourbon Barrel Worcestershire is a little sweet, but very complex.  It's going to be wonderful in barbecue sauce, and it should do great things to Caesar Salad.  I can also imagine it sprinkled onto vegetables, tossed into stews, and I can't wait  to see what it does to a pot of black beans.

    This was a terrific recommendation. I was thrilled to find it at Whole Foods and, after a lifetime of devotion to the traditional Lea & Perrins Worcestershire Sauce, heartily and gratefully agree with your assessment. “Rich” is right.
