Miso Making Workshop

Saturday, August 17

If your experience with miso only extends to the soup typically served at Japanese restaurants, here's your chance to broaden your horizons: Local miso (and belly dance!) expert Sawako Ama will lead this hands-on workshop during which you will make miso from chickpeas (as opposed to soybeans) and discuss its wide-ranging uses. $35 for members, $45 for nonmembers; 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at Sacramento Natural Foods Co-op, 1900 Alhambra Boulevard; www.sacfoodcoop.com.
