Sake has played an important part in Japanese culture for some two thousand years. But extremely high-quality handcrafted artisanal sakes are a much more recent development, going back only a few decades. At this seminar and dinner we'll taste and discuss six of these extraordinary sakes, all from the Niigata prefecture in Japan, an area renowned for the especially high quality of its sakes.
It is no surprise that sake pairs well with East Asian cuisines, and at this dinner the food will be the Taiwan-inspired cuisine of Carma Asian Tapas. Our friends at Carma have come up with an extraordinary 8-course menu (below), to be paired with six amazing sakes. Each sake and dish has been selected to pair superbly together.
Importer Ataru Kobayashi will join us in discussing the sakes. Kobayashi has played a major role in introducing the sakes of the Niigata prefecture to the United States.
Attendance is limited to just 22 people to allow real discussion of the sakes.
