While Nagoya is generally thought of as an industrial city, in fact, its food is truly unique and delicious, which makes a great reason to visit the city and to put it on the map. Alongside a range of interesting local dishes, Nagoya is known for spicing up traditional Japanese food with a generous dash of miso! That's right, Nagoya meshi or Nagoya cuisine uses tons of miso, making those light Japanese flavors become rich and intense using some signature fermented soybean paste! Nagoyans generally like to use red miso in their cooking, or akamiso, which takes up to 3 years to make, as opposed to white miso which takes about 6 months and is darker and saltier. Learn about Japanese miso and food in Nagoya during this awesome Nagoya Cooking with Miso Class, where you'll learn how to make miso nikomi udon and a pork cutlet with a tasty miso sauce.
