Cooking With Miso
Miso is savory, salty, and sweet all at once — perhaps the very definition of umami ("essence of deliciousness").

Miso, made from fermented soybeans and essential to Japanese cooking for more than 1,000 years, is the star of this tasting menu. You will taste miso dishes from soup to salad to main to dessert.
Learn the differences among misos as you taste white, Saikyo, red, awase, hatcho, and mugi. Also learn how to cook with it to make the most of the fact that miso is a powerhouse of prebiotics and probiotics. Gain a deeper understanding of washoku (literally "food of Japan"), and its ancient traditions that make meal preparation fun as well as transformative for your health.
You'll make a soup, a sauce, and dessert and sample them throughout class.
