Come learn how to make misos (from nuts, seeds, legumes and grains), pickles, and other things using koji the magical malted mushroom. We'll have great take home samples, and also things to taste there. Let us know if you plan to bring something.

If you are traveling from another state please let us know that when you sign up. (See map below with directions). Bring a container and take some miso and goodies . Recipes posted at shortly after the event! Or bring some of what you make and we'll provide you feedback on your miso or other koji centric creation.

Please Note: All of our samples were made in a kitchen that uses ingredients that contain gluten, and often wheat or nuts. If you are seriously or even mildy allergic or intolerant to gluten we recommend you NOT taste any of our products even though something is labeled gluten free.
