Umami (/uˈmɑːmi/), or savory taste, is one of the five basic tastes (together with sweetness, sourness, bitterness, and saltiness). It has been described as brothy or meaty. A loanword from the Japanese (うま味 ?), umami can be translated as “pleasant savory taste” (Wikipedia).

I’d like to think that I’m also a pleasant savory taste ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

Ooh Mammie (/u’ma:mi/), a reaction given to seduction tactics performed by food. VLOG series produced by Saumignon showcasing food in a manner that’s NSFW.

People have always mentioned that I should start vlogging, most probably because they wanted me to stop talking to them and instead talk to an inanimate object. Thus, instead of always talking about wanting to vlog I’ve decided to just dip my feet into the ocean and try it out, because it’s a new year so why the hell not!!!

If you have been following our blog since our humble beginnings ( 〃..), then you know that our blog was originally dedicated to food. Recently we’ve taken a spin on things and posted more on relatable musings. However, I’m still very much into stuffing my face with copious amounts of food. Inspired by the more than healthy amounts of mukbangs I’ve been watching over the past year and a half (google mukbang if you have no idea what I’m talking about and prepare to have your life changed) along with a weird liking to food porn that makes me want to post craigslist ads requesting videos of people cutting through runny eggs in slow motion, came the idea of filming food reviews instead of just writing about them. I find the experience with food is definitely more of a visual one as we eat with our eyes first.

Therefore, I decided to do a series around food called “Ooh Mammie” a spin on that underrated flavour umami. I think that this type of vlog would help me transition into the more generic vlogging as I’m a little shy in front of the camera and eating gives me something to do. Think of it as that glass of water you drink when you’re having a conversation and the silence lasts just a little too long.

I’m not sure exactly where this will take us but I think it’s good to start doing something instead of just always wanting to do something and never actually doing it. In this way, we can always learn and improve. I noticed that my audio ain’t that great, my grilled cheese covers my voice, AND of course I gotta work on finding better angles to capture them food porn shots. So, do not hesitate to leave any feedback you’d like in the comments along with any suggestions. I’ve really no idea what I’m doing.

NOW, let’s go through the stars of this episode that was filmed at Régine Café:

Latte

This lovely latte makes an appearance at 1:25. Look at that beauty. You definitely a leaf in my books. Work it girl.

Meal of the day involving pork cheek

The Scarlett Johansson of this food cast, this braised pork cheek dish is effortlessly sexy. The pop of green really brings out the vegetables of this dish. Fast forward to 1:35 for an intimate showing of this dish.

Grilled Cheese

Let us not forget the meal that I chew on throughout the whole vlog. Although a supporting actor in this film, this dish could have easily stolen the show. I wouldn’t be surprised if it was nominated for an Oscar. It can be caught on youtube in the comfort of your home at 1:45.

Baegnets

…and lastly how could we forget the most ballsy character in the cast. Fast forward to 2:55 to get a load of these.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR WATCHING IF YOU HAVE, IF NOT IT’S CHILL TOO!
