Event Details

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. 

Oaktown Spice Shop is a retail spice shop that specializes in whole and freshly ground spices of the highest quality. We also offer hand-mixed blends, extracts, spice hardware and more.

Umami Mart imports high-quality kitchen and barware from Japan for all your eating + drinking pleasures.

Umami Mart sprouted into this world as a food + drink blog in 2007, with contributors from NYC, Tokyo, LA, San Francisco, São Paulo, London and Copenhagen. Over the years, it has grown into a Japanese bar and kitchenware importing business. The Oakland shop, opened in 2012, is a curation of cooking tools from Japan, as well as a hub for events and conversations on food + drink.
