“Ms. Jufresa: Where the f*#! did you learn to tell a story so well?” — Álvaro Enrigue, award-winning author of Sudden Death It started with a drowning. Deep in the heart of Mexico City, where five houses cluster around a sun-drenched courtyard, lives Ana, a precocious twelve-year-old who spends her days buried in Agatha Christie novels to forget the mysterious death of her little sister years earlier. Over the summer she decides to plant a milpa in her backyard, and as she digs the ground and plants her seeds, her neighbors in turn delve into their past. The ripple effects of grief, childlessness, illness and displacement saturate their stories, secrets seep out and questions emerge – Who was my wife? Why did my Mom leave? Can I turn back the clock? And how could a girl who knew how to swim drown? In prose that is dazzlingly inventive, funny and tender, Laia Jufresa immerses us in the troubled lives of her narrators, deftly unpicking their stories to offer a darkly comic portrait of contemporary Mexico, as whimsical as it is heart-wrenching.

In the West, we have identified only four basic tastesÑsour, sweet, salty, and bitterÑthat, through skillful combination and technique, create delicious foods. Yet in many parts of East Asia over the past century, an additional flavor has entered the culinary lexicon: umami, a fifth taste impression that is savory, complex, and wholly distinct. Combining culinary history with recent research into the chemistry, preparation, nutrition, and culture of food, Mouritsen and Styrb¾k encapsulate what we know to date about the concept of umami, from ancient times to today. Umami can be found in soup stocks, meat dishes, air-dried ham, shellfish, aged cheeses, mushrooms, and ripe tomatoes, and it can enhance other taste substances to produce a transformative gustatory experience. Researchers have also discovered which substances in foodstuffs bring out umami, a breakthrough that allows any casual cook to prepare delicious and more nutritious meals with less fat, salt, and sugar. The implications of harnessing umami are both sensuous and social, enabling us to become more intimate with the subtleties of human taste while making better food choices for ourselves and our families. This volume, the product of an ongoing collaboration between a chef and a scientist, won the Danish national Mad+Medier-Prisen (Food and Media Award) in the category of academic food communication.

Known as 'the fifth taste' (the others being sweet, sour, salty and bitter), the miraculous umami occurs naturally in foods, for example, tomatoes, meat and fish, but was first isolated and named almost 100 years ago by Japan's Professor Kikunae Ikeda. Umami has long been used (in Bouillon in the West and in MSG in the East) to bring out the flavour of ingredients and create delicious dishes and this pocket sized book explains the phenomena and shows you how you can use it in your cooking. 'Umami - the World' gives you a thorough introduction to umami on the East and West.

Taste is important for maintenance of caloric input and is a critical element of the sensory evaluation for dysphagia. Umami, the fifth taste, represents the taste of protein. Thirty young, healthy, non-smoking individuals were tested for the location of the perception of umami. There were no significant main effects or interactions with order, gender, or age. The effect of location was significant, however. The tip of the tongue was found to mediate umami most strongly, with the velum being the weakest location for perception. An inverse relationship was found between the intensity of the perception of the sweet taste and the intensity of the perception of umami on the sides anterior to the root of the tongue, between the rating of the salty taste and umami on the soft palate, and between the rating of the bitter taste and umami on the sides posterior to the tip of the tongue.
