has been described by Japanese mythology as nothing less
than a gift to humankind from the gods to ensure good health,
happiness and a long life.

meat a nice outer crust.

white, yellow and red varieties, Knoll discovered an organic
miso purveyor several years ago called South River Miso, which
offers such intriguing varieties as garlic red pepper, chickpea and
golden millet.

sauces, " he says, " which benefit not only from the added umami,
but also from the miso's depth of flavor and meaty notes. "

miso such as the sweet millet. To pair with the richer, deeper wines
