Class description: Enter the wonderland of fermenting with koji, the 'national microbe' of Japan used in many foods such as miso, soy sauce and sake. Learn to ferment with koji and nuka (rice bran) for your well-being and amazing flavour effects. Make your own supply of miso that will last for months. Use koji to marinate meats, seafood and vegetables and enhance the umami flavours in your ingredients. Discover the magic of nuka fermentation, and learn how to set up your own nukadoko (fermentation bed) for quick and handy pickling and marinating.

Example menu: 

Home-made miso (using azuki beans for expediency)
