Come discover this ancient fermented (and very tasty) superfood with Kirsten and Christopher Shockey, authors of the best-selling Fermented Vegetables and Fiery Ferments. You may only know this flavor-packed paste from the soup that you see on menus in Japanese restaurants, but there is so much more to miso! In this workshop you will learn why fermented bean paste is so incredible—from mind-boggling health benefits to amazing flavor.


  • In this demonstration you learn how to make this safe easy ferment, or successfully use purchased miso in your own kitchen.

  • A jar of miso paste to take home.

Meet Your Southern Oregon Hosts
Kirsten K. Shockey and Christopher Shockey are the co-authors of bestselling Fermented Vegetables, Fiery Ferments, and the new Miso, Tempeh, Natto and other Tasty Ferments. They got their start in fermenting foods twenty years ago on a 40-acre hillside smallholding in Southern Oregon which grew into their organic food company. When they realized their passion was for the process, they chose to focus on teaching fermentation arts to others. Kirsten and Christopher travel worldwide helping people to make, enjoy and connect with their food. You can find stories of a life fueled by fermented foods on Instagram or on the web at
