Koji and co Workshop is back!

Thrilled to announce that Miso making workshop will be held at the recently finished Melbourne Farmers Market Kitchen in Alphington.

At this workshop you will learn about Koji fermentation, focusing on Miso and Katsuobushi.
Our workshop includes making your own Miso, that you will take home so it would keep fermenting over time to cook with after 1 year of fermentation at home.

Using the Melbourne Farmers Market Kitchen space means there is enough room for everyone to safely make their own Miso, in a safe environment.  This means the Miso you make and take home will only be touched and mixed by yourself.

This workshop also includes an explanation of Katsuobushi, the Japanese fermented fish – which is known in Australia as Bonito flakes.  We will explain how Katsuobushi is traditionally made at in Kagoshima, Japan – and then teach you how to shave the Katsoubushi to create the flakes to make Dashi, the important ingredient to make Miso Soup.

This workshop includes lunch: With the Katsuobushi-Dashi , you will taste various kinds of Miso to make your own ultimate Miso Soup for your lunch, sided with Omusubi rice balls.
