Patum Peperium — How do you spell "umami?"


It's been around since 1828 but I only happened on it last month.

Great stuff if, like me, you love anchovies.

Compared to Marmite, another umami-intensive spread, it's like contrasting a Ferrari with a Kia, this stuff is so fine.*


"Use very sparingly" is spot-on: Patum Peperium is so powerful, the small container I bought ought to easily last a year.

You only need a transparent film of the spread on a bagel or piece of bread or toast to get the full impact.


Cheap at twice the $8.81 price, considering the above.

*Readers in Atlanta's southern suburbs will please retch quietly, thank you very much. You know who you are....
