Berlin Food Week and the workshops are ON FIRE!!!! I was invited to "The Fifth Taste" and I was soooo excited to see what Berlin Cuisine prepared for that evening.
As wikipedia says: Umami (/uˈmɑːmi/), is a savory taste, is one of the five basic tastes (together with sweetness, sourness, bitterness, and saltiness). A loanword from the Japanese (うま味 ?), umami can be translated as "pleasant savory taste".
And the guys from Berlin Cuisine took us all on a Umami-Trip Around the globe. From Italian Parmesan to German Mushrooms, Asian Dry shrimps to licorice.
I sat next to my fellow FoodBlogger Scones and Berries and we had an awesome time. She is vegetarian and she still got to try different Umami tastes without eating meat, what is not the easiest thing to do.. Bravo! Berlin Cuisine!
Why keep talking? I will let the pictures and the video of that evening speak for themselves... Enjoy!
