The reason I started Umami is because I’m someone who is deeply interested in the world of food from what we eat, to how it's grown, to why we eat it and I love working with creative, curious people who have a sense of adventure. My goal with Umami is to create a place where we can work together to explore the richness of the world around us.

Strawberry Raspberry Smoothie

Strawberry raspberry smoothies are a great way to start the morning.  This healthy breakfast recipe uses strawberries, raspberries, and greek yogurt to create a thick, delicious smoothie packed with great stuff to get you going.

Persimmon pudding

With its warm fall flavors, a hint of cinnamon, and creamy texture persimmon pudding is a delicious dessert everyone should try.

Highlights from Umami's 2016

Here’s a quick rundown of the most delicious food we ate and interesting places we went during this past year.  

Sous Vide Duck Breast

If you’re looking for an easy way to get perfectly cooked, medium-rare duck breasts every time, try cooking them sous vide.

This white rice recipe adds a couple of twists to create a killer white rice that has great flavor and texture and helps avoid people's biggest complaint that white rice is boring and bland.

Sous Vide Duck Breast Recipe

A great way to cook perfectly medium-rare duck breasts is to cook them sous vide.  The advantage of cooking duck sous vide is how easy it is to cook the breasts evenly while keeping them tender and juicy. 

Turkey Neck Gravy

This turkey neck gravy recipe is a simple way to make gravy when you're grilling or smoking a turkey and don't have any pan drippings.  

Buttermilk pancakes with maple syrup

Soft, fluffy buttermilk pancakes with warm maple syrup are a great way to start the morning.  This buttermilk pancake recipe makes delicious, light golden-brown pancakes with a hint of cinnamon.

Maple Whipped Cream

Maple whipped cream is a nice way to add a subtle maple flavor to your desserts.  This recipe only takes a few minutes to make and is delicious on cakes, crisps, pies, pancakes, and especially waffles.

Geese flying in formation
Daniel Swenson-Klatt | October 14, 2016

The V formation itself is a thing of beauty.  I understand that on long journeys one person cannot be expected to carry the full weight and responsibility.  When it is shared, the burden is lighter, the investment is deeper, and there is a benefit to having a range of experience to draw upon.
