Probably because you have the Worcester(shire)sauce that everyone over here pronunces wrong. It's remotely similar.

Zwieback. Very crispy and dry bread.

I've seen both here, and use Worcestershire (only Lea & Perrins "woo-ster-sure" for me, please) on occasion.

You got it right, Menolly. Every time I hear "Warchester Sauce" it makes my flesh crawl and my toe nails fold in.

I mainly use Worcestershiresauce for chicken fricassee and Caesar salad.

I committed the proper pronunciation of Worcestershire to memory through telling the following shaggy dog story many times. Actually the story was considerably longer and suitable for telling around a Scout campfire...but I do not want to test my fellow Watchers patience the way I do captive Scout youth...

Quote:
There once were two brothers -- Lea and Perrin -- who thought they could make a go of opening a diner. They really did not do so well. Customers would come, but it seemed nobody came back. They tried simple dishes, they tried adaptations of cordon bleu recipes, but nothing seemed to catch on.

One day, a large bloke came in. From his speech, it seemed apparent that he had been consuming some liquid refreshment prior to coming round for dinner.

His order? "A'wanna a steak. A big steak!" The brothers cooked up the best (admittedly not all that good) steak they had and served it to the man. He was not at all impressed, and loudly indicated that it should be taken back to the kitchen.

Lea had been experimenting with a new sauce, and brought out a dish of it with a ladle. "Please sir, try this on your steak and see if it might improve your opinion of it." The man was skeptical, but cut a bite of steak, spooned a bit of sauce onto it, and ate the bite. His expression softened just a little. He cut, sauced, and ate another piece of steak. Then another.

"Tha's not too bad. Wha's dis sheer sauce called?"

...and it's been known as Lea and Perrins Worcestershire Sauce ever since.

We call it rooster sauce at my house. I know that they have Maggi in Sri Lanka because I had a roommate from there that recognized it.
