If I don't have fresh lemon juice I make it with red wine vinegar. If it is too thick you can thin it with a little water.

I enjoy umami flavor too!

I never have anchovy paste on hand and I'm too cheap to open a can of anchovies to make an everyday dressing. I wonder if a squirt or two of soy sauce and a big pinch of mushroom dust would work.

In the original recipe, the anchovy flavor came from Worcestershire sauce.

Sure wouldn't hurt!! If you have it, fish sauce would work too.

Caesar Salad and dressing- I love Caesar

I'm not an anchovy fan, but a small squirt of the anchovy paste in the tube is nice and convenient.

Many years ago, when I went on a Florida vacation with my family, I ordered a Caesar salad that unfortunately was covered in anchovy fillets. I had to pick them out. A small squirt of paste is much better.

That's a town in Massachusetts. I think the sauce is pronounced something like WOO-ster-sher. At least I hope it is, because that's how I've been saying it. Otherwise I have to learn a new pronunciation and it took me years to learn to say that one.

You almost have it right. Wooster-share And it is a major city located right in the heart of Massachusetts.

Now try Gloucester. Gloss-stir. Named after the one in England. Located on our North Shore and was for a couple of centuries a major fishing community. Not so anymore. We now get a lot of our fish from Canada and Iceland.

rr, "Wooster" is a small college town in OH.* Massachusetts residents might pronounce their second-largest city "Wooster" (more like "Woostah"), but it is spelled "Worcester". There is so much we don't understand about this state.

When I was a kid, I used to question my Mom constantly on why the condiment wasn't pronounced "wor-chester-shire". Drove that poor woman nuts. We pronounced it "woor-shish-sure" in the Cleveland area.

*David Bowie's son, Duncan Zowie Jones, graduated from The College of Wooster. A friend of our son's graduated from there two years after he did, and did know who he was. Everybody knew, since it's a small college of around 2,000. Em says that Duncan was just one of them, just another student. When David Bowie and his wife Iman visisted campus they were just another set of parents. Like, normal!
