Sauce Epicurienne, so highly approved with fish, made dishes, gravies, hot and cold meats, &c. Also, his much-improved Tomata Sauce, now brought to the highest perfection; Colouring for gravies, Soups, &c. a most convenient article; Portable Soups, glaze for hams, tongues, &c.

The Royal Sauce (1830)

Manchester Courier and Lancashire General Advertiser - 25th December 1830

THE ROYAL SAUCE for General Purposes, patronised by the Nobility and Gentry. - The extraordinary and peculiar qualities of this newly-invented sauce, render it most desirable for its general introduction, as being an agreeable and delicious assistance to all sorts of fish, game, steaks, hashes, stews, roasted meat, &c. The high estimation and acknowledged superiority to anything that has been brought forward (by those that have tried it), has induced the proprietor to offer it to the public as a valuable requisite.

The gret attention that has been paid to brining it to satisfaction, will secure its preservation and lasting qualities in any climate; it will therefore be of the greatest utility to captains of ships, &c.

Sold, wholesale, retail, and for exportation, by the inventor, Jasper Taylor, 17, Lower Holborn, London; and by most oilmen and fishmongers in the kingdom, by bottles, 2s. and 4s. each.
