Aspergillus oryzae, commonly called koji, may just be the oldest new sensation in the food world. Rob will be offering a presentation about koji so that you can learn more about this amazing fungus and what it can do in the kitchen. The presentation will cover a summary of what koji is and it’s basic biology and life cycle, history of koji’s use in Asia, directions for growing your own koji at home, and how you can apply that koji in your cooking. After the presentation there will be samples of koji-fied food available to taste.
