Restaurateur, author and food entrepreneur Laura Santtini is considered to be a world authority on the fifth taste known as ‘umami.’ Since launching the Taste #5 Umami Collection which began with the world’s first umami paste in 2009, Laura has been recognised globally as the ‘Umami Queen.’ She is credited with single handedly pioneering the use and understanding of the intriguing fifth taste for the home cook. Her life’s mission to demystify the notion of umami and make this hitherto ‘Chef’s best kept secret’ available to cooks of all levels, has resonated with home cooks around the world. Laura lives, breaths and eats umami. Laura's passion is umami and the transformative world of savoury deliciousness.
