Oh Mammy’s Umami

I like puns. I like food.

Hence the creation of a separate page to store all of the recipes on my blog and it is a happy accident that The types of foods that satisfies the umami taste are incidentally my favourite types of flavours. Umami has been a bit of a buzzword in culinary circles for a while and is often described as the 5th taste in addition to sweet, salty, sour and bitter. In Japanese it simply means a pleasant savoury taste. There is science behind the discovery of the word and of the taste and if this kind of thing thrills you (as it does me) then check out Molecular Recipes on the subject.


I will update this page every time I post a recipe.
