It’s no accident that the fifth taste, umami or ‘savouriness’, was first discovered in Japan. Natural umami is easy to find, so there’s little need for the umami additive known as MSG. Umami has three types: glutamates (from plant-based ingredients like onions and soy sauce), inosinates (animals), and guanylates (dried mushrooms). Combining different umami types multiplies the effect, which is why, from the dashi’s combination of glutamate-rich kombu (glutamate-rich seaweed) with inosinate-filled bonito (smoked fish), down to the beef and shiitake, this is a mind-blowingly savoury broth that lingers pleasantly on the palate.
