Many premium and several rare sakÃ©s will be available to taste, as will regionally micro brewed “jizake”, which means small, regional sakÃ© brewer. Prominent chefs from area restaurants and catering facilities will prepare and serve a selection of food samples that complement different types of sakÃ©.
SakÃ© Fest was created in Philadelphia by Ed Markus & David Wagner, owners of Event Navigators, an international event production company specializing in fundraising events for non-profit organizations.
SakÃ© Fest (Philly) celebrated its 6th anniversary in April of 2010 – continuing its mission to educate all consumers about the versatility of pairing sakÃ© with virtually any style cuisine â€“ from cheeses to chocolates and everything in between â€“ even pizza!
A portion of the net proceeds from SakÃ© Fest PDX benefit the Japan-America Society of Oregon
SakÃ© is more than a drink to be served with Japanese food. It is a beverage that is as versatile as wine. It can be enjoyed with cheese, chocolates, and all varieties of ethnic foods. Similar in profile to wine, sakÃ© is valued for its fragrance, impact, sweet or dry finish, acidity, presence and complexity.
