Course description

Learn about making and cooking with miso at this workshop in Sydney

There’s so much more to miso than soup. A jar of this good stuff can upgrade most savoury meals in an instant, giving a flavour and nutrient boost from the fermented paste. The salty, savoury, umami punch of miso can’t be duplicated by any other ingredient. Once you know how to shop for all the different varieties you will be amazed at the many things you can achieve with it. Join this workshop to see how it’s made and learn ways to work it into your cooking.

Miso is a traditional Japanese fermented mixture of soybeans or other grains, salt, and Koji (a safe mould that grows on rice). There are many varieties of miso, classified by the central ingredient (rice, barley or soybeans) as well as the colour and taste. In terms of colour, there are white (shiro), red (aka), brown rice and soybean miso. It’s greatest strength is lending deep umami flavour to vegetarian and other dishes.

Miso reigns supreme in terms of versatility (not to mention longevity—most miso can keep for up to a year). Miso’s there whenever you want to add a complex flavour. It can be kind of sweet, it’s deliciously salty, and it’s always packed with umami.
