Lea and Perrins Worcestershire Sauce is a classically British sauce that was created by pure chance. Originally the recipe was brought back from India and given to two local chemists, William Perrins and John Lea, so that they could recreate it.
Their initial efforts produced a disgusting broth that was utterly rejected by the chap that had asked them to produce it, and the incident was quickly forgotten about.
When they found the bottles at the back of their store a few months later, they decided to give it one last taste before pouring the whole lot away; it was at this point that they discovered the delicious taste of Lea and Perrins Worcestershire Sauce.

Lea and Perrins Worcestershire Sauce is a unique sauce and has so many uses. I use it straight from the bottle onto cheese dishes. I also add it to recipes and find the kick from the sauce really enhances many meat dishes. It also flavours sauces which accompany meals. This is one product I couldn't do without.
Lea and Perrin Worcestershire sauce is a staple item for my kitchen cupboard. I couldn't live without it. It forms the base of many of the sauces that I make. I add to the minced meat in shepherds pie to give it a zing, and recently when I made minced beef and onion pies, I added a whole load to the mix, absolutely delicious!
This is a fantastic must have product if you cook and this brand is the best. I use this in so many bases of sauces and gravies. It adds a real depth of flavor to stews great as a marinade as well and I add to bolognaise base, chili etc. Gives a tang to a dish but does not overpower in any way. I also love it on top of grilled cheese on toast.
I use Worcestershire sauce a lot, it's a very versatile sauce! I mainly cook soups, stews and stir-fries and this is a staple in a lot of my dishes. Sometimes I put some drops on my steak too when I feel like it. Just a little will add a lot of flavour so a bottle usually lasts me quite a long time.
There is no other sauce quite like this one. Rich, savoury and spicy I add it to so many dishes I think it is almost impossible to cook without it. Anything with tomatoes in will benefit from a large dash of this sauce as will anything with beef. Great in curries as well. My Granddad used to use it as his gravy!
I use this in so many dishes I cook and not just to add a bit of 'umph' to my tomato juice !
It goes well in just about anything savoury I cook in my slow-cooker and I even add some when frying my mini-potatoes to add extra taste not forgetting a few drops in my omelettes.
This larger size bottle will mean I don't have to shop as frequently as at present (my stores only sell the small size)
This has such a particular flavour that nothing quite matches it. We usually splash it on melted cheese, add it to a cheese sandwich or add a few gluggs when cooking minced beef, and it's never missing from my kitchen cupboard. Despite rarely knowing how to correctly pronounce it, everyone loves it.
I haven't been able to use Lea and Perrins Worcestershire Sauce since I became a vegetarian 17 years ago (it contains anchovies) and boy do I miss it! This stuff tasted so good and by the reviews - everyone else agrees too. Just the smell of it sets my tastes buds tingling.
Worcestershire sauce is great in a great number of dishes and even on cheese on toast.
I never want to be without Lea and Perrins Worcestershire Sauce again. Now thanks to BCS I can have it whenever I want. I add it to beef stew, shepard's pie, grilled tomatoes, bolognese, in fact I add it to just about anything just for that little extra kick. And I will certainly add it to every BCS order!
There are some things in Britain that only us Brits can fully appreciate, and Worcestershire Sauce is one of them (could also list Marmite, English mustard, suet, Piccalilli... there are plenty more). Lea and Perrins is the premium brand; excellent, rich dark sauce, flavoured like nothing else I know of... a must for stews, pie fillings, gravy and anything that needs to be enhanced in flavour. Very long shelf life and a little goes a very long way!

Some people even have it on toast I am told! However you have it, you will probably enjoy it.
This is always on my list when I order. It's versatile and can be added to all kinds of dishes. You can also add it when you are frying up a piece of meat - just add a few drops for the last couple of turns and it will make a drop of tasty juice.
