Umami is the term used to describe the quality of the sense of taste which, along with sweet, sour, salty and bitter, is one of the basic sensory qualities of human gustatory perception and is described as "meaty", "spicy" or "tasty". Every food has a certain umami content - the "palatability" can be produced in different ways - for example by drying, fermenting, cooking, braising or maturing. Think of long braised stews and sauces. Time and patience are an integral part of an umami dish. That's why we like to cook with leftovers from yesterday - because it often tastes even better when warmed up.
