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?
