About workshop:

Join the hands-on experience of traditional Japanese miso making workshop lead by Yoko Maeda, a certified fermentation expert and the founder of Hakko. This workshop will introduce Organic Rice Koji and Organic Soy Beans, an essential living culture for the Japanese kitchen, to share with everyone in class. This workshop will include:

  1. We’ll be making handcrafted Sweet Miso, a popular miso in Japan known for its lightly gentle sweet flavor taste. A low salt content combined with a higher rice koji-to-soybean ratio will produce a sweet miso flavor and an amazing aroma.

  2. An introduction to a very special traditional Kame (pot) from the City of Tokoname, Japan. This special pot is made from a unique clay only found from the Tokoname region. It’s ideal for preserving food in high salt and acid contents such as miso, pickles, and umeboshi (salted Japanese apricot). The red clay on the walls of the pot are made thick to prevent contents from oxidizing and to protect against rapid changes in temperatures. The high-gloss glaze makes it possible to sterilize the entire vessel, protects fermented bacteria from hostile fungi. The glaze also protects the crock from changing color and absorbing odors.

  3. Step-by-step process in making a homemade miso soup ball known as “Miso Dama” in Japanese. This workshop will showcase a mix of ingredients and powered dashi stock into miso, and making a small ball. When you want to have a cup of miso soup, just pour hot water into the miso ball, then you have your miso soup within minute!
