So, now I'm intrigued because I've recently learned that many of my favorite flavors are umami. (I mean, I already knew these were my favorite foods, but I just recently learned they fall under this particular flavor category...) Like Parmesan cheese, aged & blue-veined cheeses, almonds and other tree nuts, balsamic vinegar, and soy sauce. All favorites of mine.
|I could eat Parmesan and balsamic vinegar on anything. Or by themselves. Two of my very favorite flavors.|
So, now I need to know how to cook with miso... One of my favorite food writers, Mark Bittman of the NY Times gives me a starting point; what else have you got? Do you love umami-flavored foods as much as I do?!
