In this hands-on workshop, you will learn all about miso, a magical fermented bean paste that originated in Japan many centuries ago. Miso is full of umami and is used to flavor everything from soups to marinades and salad dressings, stir-fries, to eggs.
LEARN: We will talk about the history of miso, its many different forms, and then make a large batch using various legumes.
Cool weather is ideal for making miso, when the air is relatively free of contaminating microorganisms. Miso prepared during cold months will be ready by November, after the summer heat subsides and fall breezes set in.
WATCH: We will unveil a one-year miso that was started in December 2013. You\’ll get to see the results of this long fermentation process.
DO: You\’ll get to pack a mason jar full of miso to take home (but you\’ll have to wait 7 months to eat it)!
EAT: Then we\’ll enjoy one of the most popular miso dishes– homemade soup!
COST: $25 includes materials and a take-home jar! Ticket gets you one jar but you can bring a friend! (Limit 25 participants).
