Thick - n - Meaty Spaghetti Mac

Worcestershire sauce has roots in India, but was create in the town of Worcester, England in 1835. Story goes, Lord Marcus Sandy returned home to England to retire after successfully governing Bengal, India for many years. He so missed his favorite Indian sauce that John Lea and William Perrins came up with a reasonable facsimile. 

The original intent of the chemists was to keep some of the batch to sell in the store, but the fish and vegetable mixture had such a strong odor that they decided otherwise and stored it in the cellar. It was forgotten for two years, until it was rediscovered during a clean-up mission. The batch had aged into a flavored sauce which was bottled and quickly became a hot item with customers.

Lea and Perrins successfully branched out by convincing stewards on British passenger ships to include it on their dining table set-ups. It soon became a British staple, primarily as a steak sauce, and further emigrated worldwide. The guarded recipe basically remains the same.
