Maria Mantilla of Ma! Condimentos vivos de Asia has been fermenting koji in Barcelona since 2017. In 2020 she switched the praised mediterranean salt for something more significant and historical in Spain: a 7000 year old mineral salt valley in Añana, a province of Basque country. Maria will explain a little bit about this place, the importance of sourcing locally in her ferments and will improvise a fun Sagohachizuke (三五八漬け) done with Bahía rice, another heirloom variety of rice typical from Girona, Catalunya.
On December 4th we will be broadcasting Maria’s videos as part of Salt and Ceremony. If you can’t attend the event and watch them live, you can watch them later. Along with lots of other videos and the live event once ready. But you must register (See below).
