THE FIFTH TASTE
Definitive, authoritative - this is a richly illustrated, information-packed gem of a guide to the taste phenomenon that has transformed world cooking.
This is a beautifully photographed book containing a wealth of information on an enigmatic but very real element of taste that is capturing the souls of chefs across the globe; an element that not only adds a new dimension of “deliciousness” to a dish, but in doing so also greatly reduces the need to us salt to 'lift' a dish.
8 of the world’s great chefs offer a number of recipes each that illustrate the wonders of Umami; essays and contributions from food scientists Professor Ole G. Mouritsen and Drs. Kumiko Ninomiya and Yukiyo Katsuta greatly enhance our understanding of the subtleties of this taste sensation.
