Mutsuko Soma may have mastered the traditional Japanese discipline of making soba noodles, but she is not a traditionalist. She has a rebellious streak, in addition to a sly sense of humor and an unpretentiousness. Soma’s playful house misos are fully untraditional and, besides a sharp savory funk, offer a glimpse into her idiosyncratic style. Through the power of salt and koji, she reminds us that food is fun.

Mutsuko's Miso (listed counterclockwise):

1. Jalape?o-Cheddar Bagel

2. Goldfish Cracker

3. Cocoa Puff

4. Buckwheat

5. Black Garbanzo Bean
