I recently for the first time bought miso paste (shiro miso or white miso paste) in a Japanese supermarket and have since been experimenting with miso-based recipes.

Tasterlab, a new website that offers ‘taster classes’ to discounted prices for all kinds of interests and passions, such as wine and food, sports, photography, arts and crafts invited me to try one of the cooking classes hosted on their site.
