Miso-Making & Zen Dashi Workshop

April 25 @ 10:00 - 15:00


Learn to make miso using freshly made Koji (cultured rice). Deepen your understanding of miso, and how to integrate it with your seasonal cuisine. Create your own to take home to ferment.

This workshop introduces us to miso-making and how to integrate the art of Japanese fermentation into our daily diets. Miso has been deeply rooted in Japanese culture for over 1,300 years.

Aya, the founder of Sumikichi Miso and maker in residence at 42 Acres for this winter, shares how to adopt Japanese fermentation culture into our busy modern lifestyles and align our recipes with the cycle of nature, all while embracing the magically beautiful land at 42 Acres.

What to Expect:

  • Intro to the basics of miso, different types of miso, and how to use them in your daily cuisine
  • Demo on how to make vegan Dashi stock for miso soup from a Zen Buddhist cooking recipe
  • Be guided through all steps of miso-making
  • A nourishing lunch with miso soup
  • ⁠Japanese fermentation and koji pickling recipes
