Taste at Rustic by Dylan McGrath
Taste at Rustic is an exciting new restaurant in the heart of Dublin City. A new food experience by Dylan McGrath to explore the idea of flavour, tastes and in the room cooking, while being influenced by Japan, Spain and South America.
“I love the flavour release of some of these cooking techniques. I find something special in the us of their immediate, quick heat and I hope you do too.”
The idea of Taste at Rustic is to explore the five tastes, sweet, salt, bitter, umami and sour, in a subtle way and understand the difference between flavour and taste. Most of us are very familiar with the first four, but it’s in recent years that Japanese cooking has introduced us more to the fifth taste – umami. The savoury taste that is found in lots of different ingredients that it seems we chefs know the least about. Judging the body’s reaction to it we know that we crave it and thoroughly enjoy its comfort.
