Umami Bomb

Recipe by Mary Jenny

Award-winning Canadian chef, Danny St Pierre, recommends trying new trends to spice up your meal routine. “An easy trend to incorporate into your recipes is adding a distinctive finishing 1lavor just before serving. Sour and salt was identified in the 2015 McCormick Flavour Forecast as one of the top trends for this year and it's one I love to use in my cooking because it really helps bring out the flavours in the dish in an unexpected way.” St Pierre says that combining coarse salt with sour flavours, like pickled ginger, sour cherry or citrus, creates lively finishing flavours that bring brightness and texture to dishes.
