There is an ancient and royal background to the legend of the Sir Kensington Ketchup. Sir Kensington, yes he was actually a person, was born in Great Britain to a spice merchant family. H grew up to attend Oxford University to attain degrees in mercantile trade, agronomy, and culinary arts. New herbs and spices brought west by ship inspired him and he became especially interested in spices from the Orient. Sir Kensington went on to join the National Geographic Society and guild of Pepperers, where he accepted a post in Constantinople advising Her Majesty and the British East India Trading Company in rare spices. When he returned to England, Sir Kensington started hosting summits of people from around the world to continue studying. He discovered that the fuel that ran these summits and meeting of people is the food and refreshments being served at the meet. At one of these meetings the Emperor of Japan served slices of Wagyu Beef while another dignitary asked Sir Kensington for a side of Ketchup. With nothing in the house to satisfy this request, Sir Kensington whipped up marvelous ketchup that for the rest of history would have his name.
