Koji Alchemy : Rediscovering the Magic of Mold-Based Fermentation Hardback



"Koji Alchemy is empowering and does much to open the door to further creativity and innovation. . . . I can't wait to see and taste the next wave of koji experimentation it inspires." Sandor Katz (author of The Art of Fermentation, James Beard Award Winner, and New York Times bestseller) Koji Alchemy is the first book devoted to processes, concepts, and recipes for fermenting foods with koji, the microbe behind the delicious, umami flavors of soy sauce, miso, mirin, and so many of the ingredients that underpin Japanese cuisine.

Chefs Jeremy Umansky and Rich Shih leaders on the culinary power of this unique ingredient deliver a comprehensive look at modern koji use around the world.

Using it to rapidly age charcuterie, cheese, and other ferments, they take the magic of koji to the next level, revolutionising the creation of fermented foods and flavour profiles for both professional and home cooks.
