Maybe you tried hot Japanese sake with sushi when you first arrived in Japan and thought “not my thing!” Or maybe you wonder why you love some and don’t like others? Join us for a fun night of sake exploration at our Sake Salon on August 28. We will be hosted by Kyoko Nagano, a director at Sake Lovers, whose passion for sake intertwines with her work supporting craft sake brewers with overseas marketing and sales.
Kyoko plans to introduce us to three sake types that she says may even “convert the unconverted” to become sake fans. Our tasting selection will include a sparkling sake, a sake that pairs well with many dishes (not only Japanese food), and a dessert sake. Even long-time sake lovers may discover a new taste! Kyoko will talk about the uniqueness of each sake and what makes the taste different, and of course she is happy to answer any sake questions you have. She will also share a few recipes for sake cocktails!
Kyoko has also arranged special pricing for FEW Kansai (see below). And it is fine to have more than one person enjoy the tasting set (no extra charge). Invite a friend or partner to join you for this fun end-of-summer event!
