Miso, Tamari & Tasty Bean Ferments with Kirsten Shockey

April 20, 2020

One of my favorite ways to start off a meal at any Asian restaurant is with a lovely bowl of steaming hot miso soup. It wasn’t until recently that I learned that miso is actually a fermented product made from beans – often from soy! I never thought about the possibility of making miso from scratch at home until I came across Kirsten Shockey’s book on just that topic. If you’ve ever been curious about the microbial transformation of beans into products like soy sauce, tamari sauce, natto, miso or tempeh, then this is the episode for you! I speak with fermenting guru., Kirsten Shockey, who was authored several books unveiling the mystery and beauty of fermented foods.
