    Season 600 - Seasons And Seasonings

    I think Keith Floyd was somewhat extracting the michael with his deliberate mispronounciation of Woostershire sauce ,as it is properly pronounced. I have made that sauce myself and added a few zingers in chilli form , it is great with a steak or chicken.
