Miso Making + Culinary Applications

  • Three Lily Provisions Unity, Maine United States (map)

Join Chef Frank in the kitchen for a day devoted to koji and miso making. Miso, the traditional Japanese condiment, is a delicious and nutritious addition to the kitchen. Local beans, mixed with salt and koji transform over time to create a salty, umami rich paste that perfectly seasons soups, broths, and a variety of other dishes. 

The class will be hands-on, with each participant being able to take home a quart jar of miso to ferment in their home. Using koji made from rice and Aspergillus oryzae, I will also share a few ways to add this into your recipes as well. 

What's on the Menu ~

  • How to make miso

All students will recipe a downloadable pdf file of the recipes shared during the class.

Students are encouraged to bring a notebook for taking notes along the way and be dressed for comfort inside and outside the kitchen.
