Raw Sake Tasting with Homemade Japanese Dishes
Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
You might have tried sake, Japan’s rice wine, but have you ever tried raw sake? This class will introduce you to the world of nama sake, an unpasteurized (or just pasteurized once) version of sake that continues fermenting after it’s been bottled. The taste is much different from regular sake, slightly funky but filled with umami flavour, and can be hard to identify. Your instructor will introduce and explain the process behind three bottles of nama sake, each from a different prefecture and boasting their own distinct flavour. You’ll learn the difference between nama sake and regular sake, as well as how to identify distinct flavour notes. The cups of nama sake will be paired with homemade, traditional dishes that pair deliciously well. Kanpai!
