'Initially, Marmite was popular with vegetarians as a meat-free alternative to beef extract products such as Bovril, which were popular in the late 19th and early 20th century.
Marmite is traditionally eaten as a savory spread on bread, toast, crackers and digestive biscuits. Owing to its concentrated taste it is usually spread thinly with butter or margarine. Marmite can also be made into a winter drink by adding one teaspoon to a mug of hot water much like Bovril.
In 2003, the Absolute Press published Paul Hartley's The Marmite Cookbook, containing recipes and suggestions on how to blend Marmite with other foodstuffs.
Marmite also works well with cheese (such as in a cheese sandwich) and has been used as an additional flavoring in Mini Cheddars, a cheese-flavored biscuit snack. Similarly, it has been used by Walkers Crisps for a special-edition flavor and has introduced, with local Dorset bakery Fudges, Marmite Biscuits in the UK. Starbucks UK has a cheese and Marmite Panini on their menu.
In New Zealand, Sanitarium, the NZ Marmite company recommends spreading it on bread with potato crisps added to make a "Marmite and Chip" or "Crisps and Marmite" sandwich. In Singapore and Malaysia, Marmite is popularly added to plain rice congee to give it a strong, tasty flavor.' Wikipedia.com
