Master Wine Seminar: Umami Needs Her Glass of Wine
Umami was first identified by Japanese scientist Kikunae Ikeda in 1907. He discovered that glutamate had a taste that was distinctive from the traditional sweet, sour, bitter and salty sensations. Ikeda named it "umami", from the Japanese words umai and mi, translates to "delicious" and "essence".
Many foods have natural umami, their umami levels can increase when they undergo various transformations. Ripening, drying, curing, aging and fermentation all increase the umami level.
Fermentation also applies to the umami sensation in beverages such as beer and wine.
Join Master Sommelier Sur Lucero for a hands on tasting of five wines, paired with bites of food that allow you to experiment with sweet, sour, salty, bitter, spicy, fatty & most deliciously, umami.
Sur and the group will discuss which pairings work, which ones did not, and why!?
