Lea & Perrins® Worcestershire Sauce


“Lea & Perrins’ sauce adds extra flavor to my meaty recipes”

Lea & Perrins’ worcestershire sauce was founded in year 1835, it was from Worcester.

The taste of this dark sauce made of vinegar with some special seasonings. It’s not so salty or sweet, but pleasant sourish taste.
