Join Mika and Nicholas of "go-en fermented foods" for a miso making workshop and discussion about miso, its uses, and its history. go-en fermented foods is a small family owned fermentory in Whitefield, Maine. Specializing in traditionally fermented Japanese foods, "go-en" utilizes natural fermentation periods to create food the way it should be, delicious and nutritious. In this workshop students will mix and mash 1 kg (about 2.24 lbs) of fresh, organic miso to take home and ferment in the comfort of their own homes. Students will also have the chance to taste a few different preparations of miso, in the form of a light miso based snack. During the workshop we will be available to answer any questions that may arise as well as suggest sourcing for ingredients for making your own miso.
