Mariko Grady, Aedan Foods
Saturday, February 9, 2019, 10:30 am - 11:15 am
Stop by the CUESA Classroom for a cooking demo featuring the seasonal bounty of the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market, featuring one of our market sellers.
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. Aedan brings the traditions of healthy and flavorful Japanese cuisine to the table with fermented foods such as miso, koji, and amazake. All products are hand-crafted in small batches, using organic rice from Koda Farms and the highest-quality soybeans.
All demos take place in the CUESA Classroom (under the tents in front of the Ferry Building) and are free to the public, with recipes and samples for all.
