The Miso Summit will take place 18-20 of October in Brussels. 

Expect a panel discussion about different cultural approaches to koji and miso and  dynamic pecha kucha presentations that will feature diverse topics from the areas of sociology, natural sciences, flavour research as well as how to address hands on challenges for professional miso makers.

There will be umami foods, a flavour exchange and a communal miso making session.
