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.
Umami is the so-called fifth flavor, what Bryce Shuman, executive chef at Betony in New York, calls "the sense of eating something super-savory, the sense of eating meat." And he’s always trying to add it to his cooking. In this video, watch him prepare his grilled short ribs with lettuce and potatoes.
