Yes I said “Umami”, a loanword from the Japanese, umami can be translated to “Delicious, Savory, Tasty”.
I adore roasted chicken and have long been on a quest to come up with a recipe that will honor the dish in a way that only your taste-buds can judge. Last night I offered to roast a couple of chickens for a get together and I have to say I think my roasting pan has finally held the perfect bird. The results were sublime and I have yet to receive so many compliments. You know it’s good when people feel no shame in sucking and licking their fingers at the table or picking on the bones, which didn’t take much as the meat virtually fell right off. I swear I heard slurping sounds, music to my ears. With Thanksgiving around the corner, you could certainly duplicate this recipe with a turkey.
One of my all time favorite quotes is from Cicely Tyson in Fried Green Tomatoes, when she says; the secret’s in the sauce!
