"Who's U-mami?" • A special Dining Event @ Little Owl NYC
It was an exciting week for me and the Taste#5 Collection. I hosted a special dinner to showcase how I employ umami's magic to unlock super-savory deliciousness. Using recipes from my latest book, Umami at Home, I collaborated with famed chef, Joey Campanaro from The Little Owl. My dinner guests werejournalists, Instagrammers and artists who joined me for the evening to experiencethe transformational power of the 5th taste.
My favorite part of the night was when Joey told me he had been worried about my "fancy umami recipes" — until he read them and realized that it’s exactly how he cooks. Layers of flavor, freshest ingredients, depth from the umami-rich Italian pantry — parmigiano, tomatoes, mushrooms, marmite and yes, even truffles.
Enjoy the pictures and get into the kitchen and start cooking. Your family will never ask "Who's Umami?" again!
