When Faith and Alex Province pressed Chris Prosperi for his most simple gravy recipe, this is the one he gave them. Chris adds a splash of Worcestershire sauce because he loves the depth it imparts, and balsamic for its acidity. Faith suggested the old British staple Marmite might add that savory umami note Chris loves so much. To sub it in, take out the Worcestershire, and add just a small amount—a little Marmite goes a long way. Taste as you go until you’ve got the flavor where you want it.
