Taste #5 Umami Paste

Has anyone tried this Umami Paste?? Apparently it is known as the fifth taste, after sweet, sour, salty and bitter, and gives dishes that extra flavour kick.
In today's The West Australian paper, they mentioned Umami Paste has an intense flavour with a combination of porcini mushroom, parmesan cheese, anchovies, black olives and balsamic vinegar.
I am going to get this Umami Paste soon! You can get it from The Grocer in Claremont or online at for $6.95.

Hooray! I'm excited!! hehe

More info here if you wanna know more about it.

this is so interesting! i've been reading a lot about umami and how they are very much intertwined with MSG. but also how to get umami from natural sources.

and thanks for linking to my blog, so very sweet of you.
