If you enjoy reading Malcolm Gladwell's books or articles, his web site is a great resource. And, best of all, from his New Yorker Archive, you can get full access to all of his articles from 1996 to the one most recently printed this past May!

Anyhow, this is an old article, but The Ketchup Conundrum is pretty interesting reading, especially in comparing ketchup to the varieties of mustard (we have at least 7 mustards in our fridge). It is especially interesting to read that ketchup has all five tastes of the human palate, including the hard to describe umami.

I haven't been there for a while, but I think City Cafe downtown used to make their own ketchup....
