Full Dish: Umami Café
At Umami Café in Croton, partners Jonathan Pratt and Craig Purdy have taken fusion cuisine to another level. Perhaps the fifth one.
Derived from the Japanese word meaning "savory," umami also can be interpreted as the "fifth taste," "deliciousness" or "the flavor of craving." A relatively new concept in the culinary industry, umami is one of five tastes found in certain foods, ranging from tomatoes to truffles to soy sauce.
