This is a live, interactive, hands-on cooking class held online via Zoom. See our event policies at the bottom of this webpage.

Miso is a magic wand. It’s umami, salty and plays well in both the savory and sweet worlds. Usually people think of only using miso in a Japanese-style broth, but the truth is that it is incredibly versatile and enhances most anything that it touches. 

In this class, we will take different versions of this nuanced, savory paste and use it to upgrade everything from a beverage to side dishes and even a dessert. Join us as we hold miso up in a less common light and establish why this ingredient should always be present in your larder.
