Chris de Bono is the Miso Master at Meru Miso. He has a keen interest in fermentation and was drawn to Miso when he learnt about the complexity of flavours and intricacies involved in crafting Miso.
The Miso making process is steeped in history and demands patience. Once the koji, soybeans (or chickpeas) and salt have been mixed, they are pressed down in a fermenter and remain untouched for the duration of the fermentation. Everything up to this point needs to have been as good as it can be to avoid disappointment when it is opened in three months time.
How to use
Think outside of the Asian repertoire - Miso adds the savoury deliciousness that you get when you cook a mirepoix for hours - add to your mirepoix and taste the difference.
