Chocolate and flaky salt, cheescakes and miso butter sesame cookies- what do these three things have in common? They're desserts with a savoury twist!
Miso is known for its salty, earthy and sometimes sweet flavour, but it also provides an umami flavour; the fifth member of the basic tastes. So far, it may sound like miso should be used exclusively in savoury dishes but that is far from reality! Miso is the richer, more nuanced replacement for salt when you want to add balance to your cookies.
Miso adds depth, a twist that makes people wonder what secret ingredient was added into the cookies.
