Hi there,

probably for more than couple of months can't find worchestershire souce in the shops. In every shop I checked only price tag left and empty shelf In France - the same. What happened?

Our local SPAR has it, Globus, Jelmoli also

I'm from Barnsley. (Specifically, Ardsley).
I’m from Holmfirth so not very far away. Strange that there was a difference in pronunciation between the two given the relative proximity.

Wasn't a documentary series about elderly local people filmed there?

It wasn't Last of the Summer Wine, was it? Although not quite a documentary, it's near enough.

Re: where worcestershire souce gone?

The original American pronunciation is "WARCHESTERSHYRE". You're welcome.

That was filmed there. I’m sure it helped the local economy immensely but it was a right pita for the locals.

I thought there was a slight R sound, Wurster.

And when talking about the sauce, the ‘shire’ is always silent.

I'm from Yorkshire too, and for me there's a slight r in there, enough to make it different from Jeeves and Wooster.

But being from Yorkshire, we should be suggesting Hendersons as an alternative (although I haven't seen it here yet). It's a Sheffield made vegetarian alternative (L & P has anchovies in it)

Yeah I learned that in London's subway some years ago.. . At least I made some people smile that day
Normally Leicester Square is the one that catches many tourists.

Not to mention Greenwich, Dulwich, Chiswick, Grosvenor, Holborn, Marylebone, Plaistow, Ruislip and of course Southwark

I didn't know that. So I actually did manage to get my kids to eat anchovies without them realizing it!

Not sure what you mean here fella. Lester. Manchester as it sounds.

Agree. Anyway I'm from Sheffield so what you really need is Henderson's.

Btw I always wanted to ask
Is it really pronounced "wuster"?
As the only authority I know of on this thread born in Worcestershire, yes.

Godmanchester = Gumster
English isn't as easy to learn as some people think.

I lived in Caxton near there for years and I've never heard it called 'Gumster'.

Re: where worcestershire souce gone?

I'll be bummed if I can't find more Worcestershire sauce here. I recently came across an excellent recipe for a mushroom sauce that calls for Worcestershire sauce, and my hubby and I are both so addicted to it that I make it quite often. It's good on everything from potatoes to steak to chicken breasts. Very easy to make. I'll post it here in case anyone wants to try it:

Mushroom Sauce
Makes enough for 2-3 people

Melt about 1 Tbs. butter in a saucepan
Add 3 cloves of garlic, minced
Cook for a minute on medium heat (do not burn garlic)
Add about 1 cup of sliced brown mushrooms, stir
Add 2 teaspoons of Worcestershire sauce
Cook on medium and stir until mushrooms soften
Once mushrooms are softened, add 1/2 cup of heavy cream ("vollrahm")
Add a bit of salt
Simmer until thickened, stirring occasionally
Voila!

Re: where worcestershire souce gone?

Incredibly detailed pronunciation guide, but wrong, IMO, on two counts. Firstly, she's completely failed to recognise that the name of the sauce is generally pronounced without the 'shire' part at all, which is a common mistake.

More subtly, I feel that she's getting the first syllable wrong. She's not rounding the mouth at all, so the U is too open, it needs to move more towards the 'oo' sound. She's saying it almost like thirst, it needs to be more like thrust.
