Dear Lora,

Could you please tell me what this ingredient in your sauces Kitchen Bouquet is?


Dear Lora,

I've seen several recipes at your site (and some at other sites) that mention a product (ingredient) called "Kitchen Bouquet". Is this a brand name of something I'd recognize? And where in the grocery might something like this be found?

Hello Donnchadh and Kaye,

Kitchen Bouquet We've actually gotten a lot of letters asking about Kitchen Bouquet.

It is arguably the world's finest browning and seasoning sauce. I don't know how I'd cook without it. My mother introduced me to it many years ago. It is one of the hidden gems in the rows and rows of your grocery stores' sauces (like A1, etc) or in the aisle with baking supplies, spices, etc. (We've seen it with canned gravies also.) Think of the name "Kitchen Bouquet" and all the wonderful things it suggests: bundles of bright and beautiful flowers, sunlight streaming in windows, happy people making dinner for hungry families. Yet the product's function is primarily to turn gravies brown, making it more appealing. It does add a bit of flavor, but it's really more of a 'flavor enhancer' since it compliments any sort of gravy or sauce you use it with. All of this adds up to Kitchen Bouquet's allure and usefulness.

The fact that it makes things brown also makes it ideal for two other functions. Try adding 1/2 teaspoon to 1/4 cup of chicken or turkey broth and 1/4 cup melted butter. Then brush it over your Thanskgiving turkey to get a gorgeous even browning. You can also use it to "brown" meats made in the microwave.
