DID YOU KNOW?
That you only taste 5 elements in your mouth:
Salty       Bitter
Sweet     Umami (Savory)
Sour
Your nasal passage detects the actual flavors, i.e. vanilla, chocolate, bacon, fruit, etc.  

The international dinner with wine pairings was quite exquisite. The pairings were spot on, Heidi really has a natural talent in matching flavor nuances. All the courses were delicious and left me wanting more. Bravo!
