Every village had a shrine where people would go to pray for a good harvest and good health. Where there was a shrine\, there was a koji-make r\, who used the koji mold to ferment rice\, wheat and soy beans to produc e such Japanese staples as sake\, soy sauce\, miso\, rice vinegar\, and am azake (a fermented rice drink). Amazake is traditionally served at the shr ines during new years and throughout the year to promote health.\n\nWith t he industrialization of koji based products\, artisanal koji makers have d windled to about 1000. In the last few years\, Myoho Asari of Saiki Kojiya has led the educational outreach about artisanal koji making traditions d irectly to Japanese cooks and chefs\, who are now driving the renaissance in koji fermented foods.\n\nThis workshop will teach you how to make the f ollowing foods:\n&bull\; Koji cucumber pickles\n&bull\; Tamago koji omelet \n&bull\; Salmon cakes\n&bull\; Koji soup with chicken balls\n&bull\; Onig iri (rice balls) with koji sesame seeds\n&bull\; Mixed berries with koji\n \n$75 members\, $85 non-members.
