Sticking with the theme of senses, I love eating and enjoy cooking, so where would I be without my taste. Now I know that a lot of taste come from our sense of smell too, but today I am thankful that I can taste at the wonderful things edible:
- dad's curry
- taiwanese street food
- cakes from brunetti's
- angie's cheesecake
There are 5 main tastes... Salty, Sweetness, Bitterness, Sourness and Umami. What is umami? apparently it is an appetite taste - and although it can be tasted in cheeses and soy sauce amongst other foods, it was actually discovered I think in MSG!! =) yummy.
Hope everyone has had a tasteful Thursday! Take care!
