Doburoku is a type of rustic farmhouse or home brewed fermented variation of sake that is typically sweeter and with a lower alcohol percentage than sake as we commonly know it. Mariko Grady of Aedan Fermented Foods, local producers of Japanese fermented food products and ingredients, will present a menu using doburoku as well as other fermented ingredients including koji and miso from Aedan’s line of products. Don’t miss this cooking workshop that will be packed full of information on the health benefits of probiotic fermented foods as well as heapings of umami flavor with each dish on the menu!

About Mariko Grady:
Mariko Grady is the founder of Aedan Fermented Foods.
In 2011 after the devastating tsunami struck Japan, Mariko sold her natural fermented products to friends to fundraise for Japanese victims. The popularity of Mariko’s delicious fermented foods spread quickly by word-of-mouth in the local community between Japanese mothers and their friends. After this fundraising, Mariko started to write Aedan’s weekly newsletters to share fermented foods and her wisdom on leading a happy healthy life. In May 2012, Mariko joined the incubator kitchen program at La Cocina in San Francisco and since then has worked to develop her Aedan fermented food product line.
Aedan creates small batch fermented products using the knowledge passed down from Mariko’s Grandfather’s miso-making business and mother’s home miso recipes in Japan. Using this traditional knowledge, she has adjusted and perfected her recipes to match the unique flora and environment of San Francisco.
Aedan brings Japanese fermented foods that are essential to flavor and health of every traditional Japanese meal to your table. We hand craft these foods in small batch, bringing you the foundation you need to craft fresh, healthful meals for you and your family.
