A Million and One Soy Sauces
Taught by Jonathan Soma
Soma was born in the South, is what someone from the North would say. He co-founded the Brainery, is the sciencey half of Masters of Social Gastronomy, has more hobbies than can dance on the head of a pin, and loves Waffle House about eighteen times more than you.

There are about a million kinds of soy sauce, and we're going to try them all!
Well, maybe not a million, and maybe we aren't trying all of them, but we'll get pretty close. Different countries are only the beginning: dark, light, lite, assorted "black" ones (yes, they're all black regardless), double black, kecap manis, shoyu, tamari, and a handful more!
Some are best for snacking on dumplings, while others are for long-cooked stews or a dash of color.
Learn to walk down the soy sauce aisle in Chinatown with confidence, and up your Asian cooking know-how a couple points! Or, you know, just hang out and eat dumplings.
