We were thrilled to welcome back Dr. Omori to Deko Boko Eigo, as she lead us around the classroom exploring each of the 5 tastes: sweet, sour, bitter, salty, and umami. Through games and experiments, we discovered the different kinds of umami in dashi, taste tested miso from all over Japan, learned the perfect recipe for an all natural cold remedy, tried a truly bitter dark chocolate and compared it with other high cacao content chocolates, and finally discovered how baking with different kinds of sugar changes the final cake. We then talked about everything together, and discovered that everyone has different favourites. It was a wonderful experience and we are very grateful to Dr. Omori, and to our wonderful students, who made the workshop so enjoyable. Thank you!
