Umami Information Center - who knew?

Just came across the Umami Information Center site. It’s nicely organized with info galore.
Thought other food geeks would enjoy it too!


Limited edition Lea & Perkins?
I’m intrigued.

The international culture diagram is a bit over simplified. Kombu is considered essential for unami in Japanese dishes. They didn’t include dried mushrooms. I guess their stress is to grab a general idea.

The list of unami rich food list is very helpful, interesting to know dried shiitake mushroom is much richer than for example, truffle.

interesting although surprised there was no mention of sake
