Shio Koji For Everyday Cooking

May 21, 2022 / by Junko

Today was our May Membership lesson and we made dishes using “Shio koji” and “Shoyu koji” which are fermented condiments.

We like to call these “magical condiments” since it makes all of the dishes taste good, tenderize meat and fish, and with lots of probiotics, it’s very good for you! Everyone got to take back a small container of Shio Koji that they made today and they seemed very happy 🤗

Today we had new trial guests and they hit it off with our members right away and we had a really great team!
Everyone was impressed at how easy and tasty everything was, and we even had dessert using Shio Koji.

We always have such a great time at our membership lessons, we always look forward to next month the moment our lesson ends. Hope they will enjoy the June menu as much as they did this month’s menu!

There are so many Japanese dishes and cultures that are not well known outside of Japan and I’m happy to introduce them to you! If you tested any of our recipes feel free to send us a photo and your comments and we will be happy to publish them, even if it wasn't a complete success! :)
