“The best way to find out the taste of umami is to buy a tub of monosodium glutamate, stick a finger in it and put it in your mouth. It reminds me of chewing on a wet flannel in the bath as a kid. That sensation of wanting to chew it even more: that’s the umami mouth feel.”

Heston Blumenthal, in The Times, 4.3.2010, The Table, p.3
