The Power of Miso
Thursday, February 21, 2013
Miso, the main ingredient of miso soup, is a traditional Japanese seasoning produced by fermenting rice, barley, and/or soybeans with salt. High in protein and rich in vitamins and minerals, miso plays an important nutritional role in Japan. Widely used in both traditional and modern Japanese cooking, it has been gaining interest world-wide. In this event, we welcome Dr. Lawrence Kushi, internationally recognized for his expertise in nutritional epidemiology and his research on the role of diet and nutrition in the cause of cancers, to discuss the health benefits of miso. Owner Chef of VITAE restaurant, Chef Edwin Bellanco, demonstrates new and innovative usages of miso. Audience members will leave this event with a free sample and recipes to try at home.
Followed by a tasting reception.
