Mariko Grady, Aedan Fermented Foods
Saturday, May 13, 2023, 11:00 am - 11:45 am
Stop by the Foodwise Classroom for a cooking demo featuring the seasonal bounty of the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market.
Following the earthquake that devastated Japan in 2011, Mariko Grady started selling her homemade miso throughout the Bay Area to raise money to donate to victims in her home country. Mariko found that there was a hunger for her handcrafted ferments, so in 2012, she applied to La Cocina’s food business incubator program to formalize her cottage food operation. In 2022, she opened her own kitchen at 613 York Street in San Francisco. Aedan brings the traditions of healthy and flavorful Japanese cuisine to the table with fermented foods such as miso, koji, and amazake. You can also find Aedan Fermented Foods at the Ferry Plaza Farmers on Saturdays.
All demos take place in the Foodwise Classroom (under the tents in front of the Ferry Building) and are free to the public, with recipes and samples for all.
