Special Workshop

Miso Making Workshop

January 23rd 2020 | 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm

About this class

There are many benefits of Miso for your health; it is a core ingredient of Japanese cooking. Understanding its use will provide a foundation for your cookery skills. Miso brings an Umami flavour to dishes, that give many Japanese recipes their unique flavour.

“My home region in Japan is well-known for Koshu Miso. Every New Year before the Spring, my family prepares this by hand in preparation for the rest of the year.”

Unlocking the power of Miso will allow you to experiment at home with different strengths and varieties that you can introduce to your cookery. From pantry to palate, this workshop will teach you which ingredients to use and the basics of the fermentation process.

At the end of the workshop, you will have made approx. 1/2 kg of miso paste that you can take home and store, ready for use in 6 months.
