A three hour hands on cooking class with demonstrations. Students will enjoy a light meal with wine, and take home miso to ferment at home.
We are pleased to welcome Hiroko Greenberg to our classroom, as she is visits us from Nevada City, where she regularly shares her knowledge at the Briarpatch Co-Op Community Cooking School. Miso has been traditionally made at home in Japan for many years, and has entered American kitchens as a staple ingredient in sauces, salad dressings, and savory dishes. In this class, we will learn step by step how to make homemade miso, and every student will leave with a jar of miso in progress. We will also make a variety of dishes featuring prepared miso and enjoy a meal together.
Miso Tahini Dressing with Vegetables
Miso Soup with Dashi and Tofu
Miso Dengaku - Miso Broiled Tofu
