And just when I thought I had mastered the “basics” of cooking, along comes a new taste.

Sweet. Sour. Salty. Bitter. And, now … Umami.

While I’m intrigued by the concept in and of itself, I was instantly swooning over the simplicity of the packaging. I’m a sucker for an aluminum tube.

And, special thanks to Gwyneth Paltrow over at Goop, for sharing this wonderful new treasure – which she says will be at Dean & Deluca (re-swooning ..) this month!

Have you tried the newest Taste No. 5?
