"This satisfying and handy take on the fifth taste will please vegetarians and omnivores alike."
--Publishers Weekly

Cookbook author Raquel Pelzel is "always interested in ways to make my vegetables taste extra, deeply, boldly, intensely, fantastically, rich-savory-comforting-eyes-roll-back-in-your-head awesome." Yes, please! Because Pelzel doesn't eat much meat (above all for environmental reasons), she explains, she went on a quest to identify as many plant-and dairy-based sources of umami as possible... and developed 75 unbelievably flavorful recipes to harness these."
--Food52, #1 Best Cookbook of Fall 2019

"I was delighted to discover Umami Bomb by Raquel Pelzel. Pelzel, a longtime food editor, addresses the "depth" issue for vegetarian cooks with a love letter to umami... Her insanely next-level grilled cheese recipe deploys two umami bombs -- miso and caramelized onions -- and, dare I say, is as satisfyingly decadent as a burger."
--Jenny Rosenstrach, A Cup of Jo

"The food in this book is cheesy and smoky and earthy and packed with miso, mushrooms, and soy sauce--and (surprise!) it's all vegetarian."

"The 75 recipes that make up Umami Bomb prove that meatless meals can be as unforgettably flavorful as meat-filled ones."

"A vegetarian cookbook with super satisfying recipes built around the most umami-rich ingredients--like mushrooms, miso, aged cheese, and caramelized onions."

"Vegetarians and carnivores alike will rejoice at the bold, inventive recipes in Umami Bomb."
--Shelf Awareness for Readers

"Umami Bomb is your go-to guide for infusing every meal with deliciousness. And while the recipes happen to be vegetarian (which is good for you, and the planet, too), the book isn't just about eating more vegetables and less meat. You'll learn to infuse everything from a decadent chocolate cake to a creamy risotto with umami's trademark can't-get-enough taste. Thanks to Raquel's clever ideas and the abundant flavor in her smart, streamlined recipes, this book is set to become a kitchen classic."
--Lindsay Maitland Hunt, author of Healthyish and Help Yourself
