Ueda describes the taste element of umami which has now become a part of the English vocabulary.
Alvarez says her aunt and uncle who are in the restaurant business have probably heard of it.
She talks about how they’ve opened up a new eatery in Orlando, Florida, which is doing very well.

Umami (/uˈmɑːmi/, from Japanese: うま味) or savory taste is one of the five basic tastes (together with sweetness, sourness, bitterness, and saltiness)
This term is in English dictionaries now. Ah, my main dictionary defines it as a taste sensation that is meaty or savory and is produced by several amino acids and nucleotides.

Ueda says,”It’s the fifth primary taste after sweet, sour, salty and bitter.”
Hyphen-like is a very convenient suffix.

So the presentation resembled a short movie. Or, a wolf-like animal was spotted in the neighborhood. So they’re not sure if it was a wolf but it looked like one.

Ueda uses savory in the culinary sense, which means “tastes of salt or spices and not sweet.”

Around the middle, Ueda says, “It may seem new to the American palate,” Our sense of taste.
Some people are said to have a very sensitive palate or a refined palate. And that means they’re very sensitive to subtle differences in taste.
Ueda is talking about a scientist who studies chemistry. But in Britain, this can also mean the person in a pharmacy who’s trained to prepare and dispense drugs. In America, we would call that person a pharmacist. 薬剤師
