"Ms. Jufresa: Where the f*#! did you learn to tell a story so well?” --�lvaro Enrigue, award-winning author of Sudden Death As heard on NPR's Weekend Edition with Scott Simon 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.

"Umami is considered the fifth taste, in addition to sweet, sour, salty, and bitter. In Umami, ten of today's most renowned chefs explain how they discovered this fifth taste and the ways in which it has had an impact on their cooking. Two of the chefs are Japanese (Nobu and Murata), but the others come from around the world: the U.S. (Anthony and Kinch), the U.K. (Blumenthal and Cursan), France (Bourdas and Nagae), and Peru (Martinez and Schiaffiano) ... For each of the eight main contributors, there's a two-page color spread featuring a personal essay about umami, and photos of the chef and his restaurant. Then the chef presents four recipes that showcase the fabulous umami-rich dishes that have earned his establishment its Michelin star(s) ... An additional section of the book showcases pastry, as two of today's leading pastry chefs weigh in on how umami plays a role in their baking."--Amazon.com.

Explore the wonder and magic of the fantastic fifth taste with over 60 tantalizing recipes that take flavor to another dimension. Umami is the super-savory fifth basic taste. It is both ubiquitous and elusive, present but often unrecognized, and it has the extraordinary ability to enhance individual flavors, transporting dishes to another level. It is the taste that keeps on giving long after salty, sweet, bitter, and sour flavors are spent. Umami is a Japanese word that translates as 'savory deliciousness', but it is far from a Far Eastern concept. It is absolutely universal and does not belong to any single culture - it can be shared, enjoyed and appreciated by all those in possession of a tongue. Everyone has experienced it - the salted anchovy that melts into the tomato of a pizza, the irresistible marriage of pancetta and Parmesan in a creamy spaghetti carbonara, or the rich, caramelized chorizo in a pan-fried calamari and chorizo salad. Once understood, umami is you best friend both in and out of the kitchen. It is a total game-changer for cooks of all levels who want to grab life with both hands and lick it. In this book, you'll discover extraordinary new flavor combinations in dishes such as baked Camembert with Parmigiano Reggiano and Roasted Cherry Tomatoes, Peppered Seared Tuna with Matcha Miso Vinaigrette, and Coconut and Cardamom Butter Chicken. This book contains a taste of the wonder and magic of umami, and once bitten you will forever be smitten.

In the West, we have identified four basic tastes--sour, sweet, salty, and bitter--that, through skillful combination and technique, create delicious foods. Yet in many parts of East Asia over the past century, a fifth taste--umami--has entered the culinary lexicon. Umami is savory, complex, and wholly distinct. Combining culinary history with research into the chemistry, preparation, nutrition, and culture of food, this book encapsulates what we know to date about the concept of umami which, when harnessed, enables us to become more intimate with the subtleties of human taste and make better food choices for ourselves and our families.

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.
