Make Your Own Miso & Salt Koji Workshop 2017

Make your own miso workshop

The workshop includes a talk about various fermented food in Japan, a hands on session where you can make your own miso (approx. 2kg to take home and ferment yourself – worth $60), a jar of salt koji (shiokoji) (retail price $7) – salt alternative fermented food which is a big hit in Japan at the moment – and lunch / light meal of various fermented dishes and non-sugar sweets using miso and koji (fermented rice). All material inclusive. 

Please note, you will need to look after your miso at home while they ferment for 6 months before you can eat it. Yes, good things take time!   

Also, FYI we will be using certified Australian organic soybean, rice, and sea salt for our miso.
