Umami in Spice
Monday, September 23, 2013 from 6:30 PM to 8:00 PM (PDT)
Oaktown Spice Shop and Umami Mart partner to present Umami in Spice, a workshop exploring umami, the fifth taste! You are familiar with sweet, salty, sour, and bitter. But what is umami? What does it taste like? How do you cook with it?
Develop your skills and take your cooking to the next level.
We'll taste traditional Japanese examples of umami and learn about its existence in some famililar and not so familiar spices.
