Sake Fundamentals Workshop

I want to let everyone know about our sake friend Melinda‘s  Sake Fundamentals workshop next  Saturday on January 17th in Tokyo.  You will be amazed by her magical instinct to find the best pairings of sake and all kinds of food!

“On January 17th, join me and Japanese food expert Elizabeth Andoh, author of award-winning cookbook Washoku, for the first installation of our Sake Fundamentals workshop! In this session, we’ll talk about sake production, grades of sake, and pairing. Find out what separates a honjozo from a daiginjo, how to choose the right sake for your food, and much, much more. You’ll have the chance to taste five wonderful sake, along with Andoh-sensei’s delicious Japanese home-cooking. You only have a week to sign up, so get cracking.”

Also, she’s announced continuing sessions in February and March!

* Grades of Sake and the Brewing Process (Session One: January 17)

* Varieties of Sake and Serving Temperatures (Session Two: February 7)

* Regional Character (terroir); Guidelines for Pairing Sake with Food (Session Three: March 14)

If you want a great introduction to nihonshu, her classes will be an excellent start. Good luck with your new venture, Melinda!
