Worcestershire sauce has a salty and fermented taste and is often used as a seasoning on meat and fish. The original version is made by combining malt vinegar with salt, sugar, molasses, anchovies, spirit vinegar, tamarind extract, garlic, onions, spices and flavoring. Many people avoid using Worcestershire sauce due to its use of fish. While there are a number of quick substitutes for it, none of them will provide the exact same flavor.

    What is a substitute for brick cheese?

    A:

    Some substitutes for brick cheese are Havarti, cheddar and Limburger; however, the brick cheese's age will determine the most effective replacement because the age will determine whether the brick cheese is mild or pungent. If a dish calls for a mild brick cheese, then a substitute can be Havarti or cheddar.
