    Maggi, not "Maggie."  It's a condiment / flavor enhancer / seasoning sauce, now made by Nestle.  It's something like soy sauce but with a great deal more going on.  It's hugely popular in all sorts of regional cuisines. and not just with or instead of soy sauce.  You'd be surprised where it turns up - Polish and Mexican cooking, for instance. 

    When I tell the story of how I learned to make congee, and the final step in the process of going from "something missing" to "just right" was a few drops of Maggi, the Asians always laugh because it's so true.

    Salty, sweet, complex, tons of umami.  Great stuff.  Get some.  Try it.

    Ya know, French Fries, here in the South we only have four food groups:

    Sugar

    Preservatives

    Grits

    Beer

    Looks like Maggi has two of the four covered. /img/vbsmilies/smilies/lookaround.gif

    I'll go for the grits and beer and originally I was a Northerner.
