About This Class


Hi I’m Juri Austin. Thanks for stopping by. In this class I will introduce a classic Japanese health drink called Amazake.

Amazake, which means "sweet alcohol" in Japanese, is an all-purpose beverage that has been popular since ancient times.

It has a natural sweetness, which is fermented with the help of an enzyme called "koji". Because of its fermentation, it has a high nutritional value. People drink it or use it for cooking (especially desserts).

In this class you will gain a deep knowledge of amazake, its nutritional benefits and how to make this great drink in your home.

I hope you will enjoy the class. Let`s get started.

I love amazake and I enjoyed seeing the different techniques for making it and how to enjoy your amazake in different ways. For constructive feedback - the sound in the thank you video was much lower (for me) than in the other videos. If it was consistent, it would be perfect ^.^

Very interesting! Especially appropriate for those who have an interest in lacto-fermentation. Opened my eyes up to a new fermented food I may enjoy, while learning a bit more about Japanese food and culture.
thanks. now I only need to find kouji outside of Japan....
