Miso is considered a fundamental element of Japanese food culture. The paste is made from a starter culture called koji, fermented soybeans and another grain such as rice, barley or rye. It is the fermentation process that gives the paste its unmistakable taste. By the way, the darker the paste, the more intense its taste.
Miso serves as the basis for soups and sauces and can be used as a seasoning. If you’ve never tried Miso before, we recommend that you order a bowl of traditional Miso soup.
