About the VIP Workshop:

Fermenting Beans: Making Miso and Tempeh with Sarah Arrazola

In this three hour workshop, you will learn the basics of fermenting  tempeh and miso, perhaps two of the most prominent Asian ferments that have permeated western culture. These ferments require very different time frames. While tempeh generally runs its course from 18 to 36 hours, miso can ferment for several months, even years. For this particular workshop, we will demonstrate using non-soy beans. We will use the spore Rhizopus Oligosporus, the spore required to inoculate the beans for tempeh, and koji (Aspergillus Oryzae), the fungus used to create miso. Both miso and tempeh are great examples showing how something as simple as a bean can transform into exceptionally tasty ferments. You will be equipped with knowledge from the class, a set of tempeh and miso making instructions, plus both sets of spores to get you started at home.
