All-natural ketchup made from scratch—Sir Kensington's

By William Sertl

Sir Kensington may or may not have served Her Majesty in Constantinople, as the legend would have you believe. But one thing is sure: His “gourmet scooping ketchup” is world’s away from the standard variety, with ingredients like apple cider vinegar, honey, and raw sugar where other brands make do with the dreaded high-fructose corn syrup. Sir K. also doesn’t just list “spices” on the label but spells out the ingredients: “green onions, chipotle peppers, cilantro, cayenne.” Of course Sir Kensington’s tastes different; think homemade ragù vs. SpaghettiOs. Think of your Super Bowl party, with those all-beef franks from Dickson’s Farmstand. Think of two under-30 dudes who met at Brown and went on to create … nevermind, just think Sir Kensington’s.

Should the Earl of Sandwich drop by …

… you want to be ready. Sir Kensington suggests whipping up a Top Hat : Coat two slices of focaccia with ketchup before filling with four thick slices of roast beef, melted Gruyère, caramelized Spanish onions, and watercress. (Substitute arugula for watercress, and you have a Wild Duchess.)
