There’s sweet, salty, bitter, sour and umami.  Umami is the earthy robust taste sensation that became official in 2000.  Identified in 1909 by Japanese chemist, Kikunae Ikeda, the translation means roughly “delicious taste”.  It’s a meaty, savory, deep taste and when you add umami to your cooking you add a robust depth.

One of the best and easiest ways to get umami is adding some delicious Maine seaweed to your dishes including sweets- think brownies, chocolate cake.  Check out our blog Got Umami?
