Kitchen Bouquet Vs Gravy Master

Most people think that the sauce bouquet and the cooking bouquet are the same, with a difference in name.

Is the kitchen bouquet good after the expiry date?

Opened bottles of Kitchen Bouquet are shelf stable; they do not need to be refrigerated. They can be stored where you would store shelf stable spices and other flavourings.


Since a kitchen bouquet is a browning sauce, why don’t you make your own browning sauce at home to monitor the ingredients you use.

This method allows you to thicken or make your sauce thinner as desired.

You need the following:

  • ½ cup of brown sugar
  • 1 cups of water
  • Beef broth base
  • Take care as you prepare this because it usually spatters. Also, maintain a ratio of 1:2 of the sugar and water.

    If you intend to increase the amount of sauce, increase the initial ingredients. However, just make enough portion to use for a short while.

  • To begin, add the sugar in the saucepan and let it heat at a medium-low heat level. This should take roughly 5-10 minutes and keenly watch for the browning of the sugar.
  • Remove the sugar from the heat source and add the water in small bits. Since the sugar may sputter, you need to add the water cautiously. Never add the entire cup of water once.
  • Add the beef base to your desired consistency then place it back to the heat source. This time, continue to stir it under the low heat until its nicely mixed.
  • Cool the sauce then store in an airtight container.
  • While you made a cup of the sauce, you may only use a spoon or two for your meals the rest need proper storage. Consider refrigerating the sauce if you intend to use it within a week.
  • If you made a lot more, freezing it is the best option. It’s even better to use ice cube tray, this will help avoid the frequency in thawing and freezing again.

    Worcestershire Sauce – For Less Salty Dishes

    You need salads to be the starter of every meal? Worcestershire sauce is precisely what you need.

    The name “Worcestershire” surprised me when I first saw the brand because it sounded so “royalty.” In fact, it does have a prestigious origin if you have a chance to find some further information about it.

    A member from English nobility in the 1830s, Lord Marcus Sandys, discovered the sauce while governing Bengal.

    When he returned home, he gave it to two chemists, Mr. Perrins and Mr. Lea, to complete it. That is why the most common and long-standing Worcestershire sauce in the market nowadays is named Lea and Perrins, after two chemists.

    Perhaps, due to its noble origin, Worcestershire sauce was widely used by royal members in not only the City of Worcester but also all over America.

    The sauce is sweet and savory with the combination of anchovies and lots of ingredients, such as tamarind, garlic, onion, or molasses.

    Therefore, it is an excellent choice for salad dressings, dips, and marinades. The color will look beautiful and very natural.

    One special thing is that you can add this kitchen bouquet substitutes directly to your foods or pour it to a small bowl and make it a sauce for your meat, fish, or sushi.

    The flavor is not too strong and a little salty, which will create the best dishes just for you.
