Odakyu-Sagamihara station (Odakyu line)

Important Information

DO NOT EAT NATTO (fermented soybeans) on the day of your participation.
Natto is fermented using a different type of bacteria, which is very powerful and will disable the Miso bacteria (meaning your Miso will not ferment properly)

Also, you can choose the type of container to take your Miso home with you.
Please let me know in advance if you prefer 1. flexible plastic (like sandwich bags) or 2. rigid plastic (like Tupperware)

What you need to bring

Bags to carry your Miso (would weigh less than 1kg per person)
Please don't wear your Sunday best as it can be messy ;)

My name is Yuiko and I'd like to call myself a traveler :) (although now a full time research analyst)

I love travelling and so far I have backpacked to more than 35 countries, as well as having lived in the UK for 5 years.
I have a great passion for food and through my friends and travels I always learned about and enjoyed exotic food cultures and beyond, so now I decided to share some of mine with those who are visiting Japan!

I currently host some workshops in a group we call "grandmas group", where we gather and try out traditional Japanese cooking and other life techniques like making soaps.
I am interested in sustainable and healthy living full of love - through the food we eat everyday.
I believe some hints for this kind of lifestyle are found in some of our traditions - therefore I offer these workshops!
I am not a professional chef but I believe I can provide the "real" Japanese experience! ;)

    Great Miso Class!

    Yuiko was a wonderful, knowledgeable and generous instructor! Her prep work prior to the workshop and excellent English resulted in an engaging and informative workshop. Can't wait to see how the miso we made turns out in a year and to make it at home again!
