Another Blackpool Lug/makerspace in full swing
In a completely separate discussion at the other end of the room: is the fifth taste, umami real?
“However, not everyone is convinced that umami should even be classified as a basic taste. Professor Barry Smith of London University’s Centre for the Study of the Senses queries why “we need neuroscience and the Japanese” to alert us to umami, when tastes such as salt and sweet are clear as day”

The ‘Raspberry jam’ ran in conjunction with the makerspace and lug this week, and is likely to become a regular feature once a month.
