Our great emphasis is placed on combining the five flavors: sweet, salty, spicy, bitter, and umami (the glutamic taste).

Yes the Regional Italian Cuisine is naturally rich in umami taste (ripe tomatoes, black and white truffles, raw egg yolks, sundried tomatoes, air-dried Prosciutto Crudo, Colatura d'Alici, radicchio, caramelized onions, asparagus, spinach, cabbage, Parmigiano Reggiano and other aged Italian cheeses, tuna, fresh and salted sardines, Bottarga, black cuttlefish or squid ink, beef stock reductions, Dried Porcini Mushroom, and much more!)
