Worcestershire sauce originated in India but its creation was a total accident in its home town of Worcester, England in 1835. A travelling man returned home after living in India for several years and he desperately wanted to recreate his favorite Indian sauce. He made several attempts to try and mix the batch to sell in a nearby chemist store. The odor from the fish and vegetable concoction was too strong so they were forced to get rid of it in the cellar. They forgot about it in the cellar for two years until they found it again. Surprisingly it had aged deliciously! Worcestershire sauce was invented and an instant success.
It is flavored with molasses, anchovies, garlic, chili pepper extract, sugar, tamarind extract and salt. It’s a fermented condiment made from a base of vinegar.
The sauce is used to brush onto meat, fish or poultry that is grilled, fried or baked. It can be used as a condiment on sandwiches and shellfish or seasoning for salads. It is also used for marinades. The taste is tangy, savory, sweet and salty. The mix of all these things makes it an interesting condiment.

Sesame oil is an extremely popular oil in Asian style cooking and it is made from sesame seeds. Depending on how the oil is made the final result is darker or lighter oil. As a general rule the darker the oil the stronger the flavor. Usually, lighter colored oil can be used like canola oil or vegetable oil. The flavor is neutral. The darker oil can be used for low or medium heat cooking. You can also try it with this Spiralized Veggie and Jasmine Rice Bowl. The taste is rich, nutty and toasty.
