Taste The Rainbow
You possess superpowers in many facets of your life (your ability to sense an impending hailstorm, diffuse a hostile female’s temper, and sniff out the cleanest bathroom within a 5 mile radius), yet nothing can compare with the abilities of your tongue…to discern flavors, of course. Treat your tongue to some Taste No. 5 Umami Paste ($8.00), from Laura Sanitini. Umami is known as the fifth basic taste your tongue can detect, along with sweet, sour, bitter and salty. Often referred to as “savory,” the Chinese character for umami simply means delicious. How apropos. Use this 3-pack of delicious-in-a-tube No. 5 as a natural food enhancer, as a spread for meat or poultry before cooking. With its flavors of tomato, olives, vinegar, mushrooms, cheese and spices, Taste No. 5 Umami Paste will be the best thing you put on your tongue all day…potentially.
