Marmite is a sticky, goopy spread make from yeast extract that’s popular in England. And according to Minneapolis chef Landon Schoenefeld, it will be picking up some fans in the US over the next few years. “It’s one of the fermented foods that hasn’t gotten a lot of love when you compare it to kimchi or miso,” he says. “It adds a great vegetarian umami factor.
