A discussion of African spice blends and cultures as interpreted by the diaspora of Africans throughout the world, the creation of Caribbean and Creole food and basically all Southern Cooking, and more. Hearth baked and prison and slave bread and Western kenyan fermented milk and ash.

A simply amazing array of applications of koji to regional African resources including Eland and Wildebeest, interpretations of standards like koji-cured bacon and koji cured bresaola, along with some unique experiments using koji to create new flavors and textures in meats and drinks by Sacha Wilson, some unique recipe demonstrations, and a Gullah-Geechee story and a Hoppin’ John recipe from Ebonee-McCorvey.

Making Mopane Garum and a discussion of the context in which it is made including a history of family hunger during which termites and other insects – actually, a delicacy – were eaten during hungry times by Anja de Klerk.

Sweet Potato Koji Vinegar


Part of the Women and Sake Making Sessions
Sweet Potato Vinegar for the Women and Koji Making Event (over 60 hours in case you need to space it out!). And you can make great vinegar from bodaimoto type country sake also called doburoko.

Vinegars seem to multiply like rabbits around here. We’ve been trying to recreate several dozen recipes for vinegars from thousands of years ago using beans and grains and roots. They are very tasty, and add something very special to just about anything.
