Miso Classes

Class/Workshop/Tasting events that I offer at my home in South Berkeley. Please contact with your phone number, so that we can talk!

Miso Tasting and Cooking for Beginners

Miso can be used as a marinade, flavor stir-fry dishes, make a luscious sauce… It is the most useful paste anyone can have in the kitchen. In this 3 hour tasting/cooking class, we will try a variety of miso to understand what is available, demystify miso soup, and learn several other tasty uses for miso. Come hungry and ready to learn! (Max 10 people.)

Miso Making for Beginners

Good miso is made, not bought. There are only 3 ingredients, how difficult can it be, right? In this 3 hour tasting/making class, we will explore the taste of different varieties of miso, then learn how to make some at home, using the tools you probably already have in your kitchen. You will go home with 2 pounds of miso to mature yourself in a glass jar. Once you take this class and pick up miso-making as a hobby, you will be able to give the gift of health and happy eating for yourself and the people around you. (Max 5 people.)

Creative Miso Making

Can miso be made with anything other than the traditional building blocks or soybeans, rice koji and salt? How to go beyond the basic varieties of miso with confidence? Taste the miso fermenting in many experimental jars in my kitchen. Learn the range of proportions and maturation periods. Go home with a jar of your own creative miso to mature at home! (Max 5 people)
