Entertaining the Bakersfield Way by Miles Johnson

I took my cue from my friends at the Department of Agriculture to fill me in on the ingredients best suited for harvest in the mid-summer months.

24-6 Winter Issue

No sushi experience would be complete without a piping hot bowl of miso soup. A Japanese staple, it’s  actually one of the easiest dishes you can make. It has only a few ingredients, but according to Toro Fusion Sushi Bar and Grill, timing is everything. Here’s something you might not know: miso is produced by fermenting rice, barley, and/or soybeans, with salt and mold. Typically, miso is made with soy and is a thick paste used for sauces and dressings. It’s also used with stock or water to make soup.
However, Toro puts a bit of a twist on their soup to give it extra kick and Philip Chang, owner, is glad to share it with Bakersfield Magazine readers.
