Tasting Menu: Aedan Fermented

Samsung Hall
Free with museum admission. $5 after 5 PM.
Purchase your Thursday Night ticket now.
Tasting Menu is a new series that considers connections between Bay Area “foodie” culture and objects in the museum’s collection. 

Join us as Mariko Grady, founder and entrepreneur of Aedan Fermented, discusses fermentation processes, particularly for koji, live-cultured food that is the heart of her traditional Japanese products.

Grady will speak about the close connection to nature that is so important in Japanese culture. Learn about the health benefits of koji and miso, then try your hand at making your own batch of miso to take home. Participants will also be invited to sample Grady’s miso atop a mini rice ball. 

Please note first come, first served. Seating and food bites are limited.
