Food Network say wha?


People of Los Angeles,

Has anyone ever tried Umami Burger?

Giada and her Boobs talked about it last night on The Best Thing I Ever Ate (Food Network), and it looked insane. Three kinds of steak, roasted tomato, a parmesan crisp, some sort of homemade umami ketchup (I still don't really understand what umami is) - I would like to eat this for breakfast.

By the way, The Best Thing I Ever Ate is a great show... really well produced, great pace, AWESOME FOOD... bravo Food Network! You are my friend.

I have not yet tried this place but I've heard only good things. You'll have to let us know how it is if you end up venturing over to one.

Umami, popularly referred to as savoriness, has been proposed as one of the basic tastes sensed by specialized receptor cells present on the human and animal tongue. Umami (旨味?) is a loanword from Japanese meaning "flavor" or "taste" (noun).[1] In English, however, "brothy", "meaty", or "savory" have been proposed as alternative translations.[2][3] In as much as it describes the flavor common to savory products such as meat, cheese, and mushrooms, umami is similar to Brillat-Savarin's concept of osmazome, an early attempt to describe the main flavoring component of meat as extracted in the process of making stock.

This all means it really tastes good!

In one of Michael Pollan's books (I believe "In the Defense of Food") he writes about the history of Umami and it's identification simultaneously by both a Japanese chemist and Escoffier, which, among other things, led to the development of MSG, or something like that.
