There are five known tastes — sweet, sour, salty, bitter, and umami — but each one presents a world of possibilities, especially when you bend the rules. Inspired by our partnership with MOFAD Lab and Infiniti USA, we're checking in with five innovative chefs to see how they take each of these tastes to the next level.
Sour is one of the five tastes, and it's one we crave much as sweet, says chef Will Horowitz of New York's Duck's Eatery and Harry & Ida's Meat and Supply Co. See how Horowitz puts a new spin on a classic sandwich with his very up-to-date house-cured pastrami sandwich, served with his cucumber slaw. "We have smokiness and savory," he says. "We have sourness from our fermented slaw, and a real cut of acidity." It a sour sandwich, and a delicious one.
