  • SUMO STEW Brooklyn 111517

    Wednesday, November 15th, 2017, 8-11PM

    @ The Brooklyn Brewery, 79 N 11th St, Brooklyn, NY 11249

    SUMO STEW (#SUMOSTEW) is back in Brooklyn for its 17th round! Inspired by a trip to Japan, photographer Michael Harlan Turkell (harlanturk.com) returned to New York City with aspirations of importing this ancient sport and teamed up with Harry C Rosenblum, owner of The Brooklyn Kitchen (thebrooklynkitchen.com), a wonderfully multi-faceted cooking store and center for culinary education. The two created a series based around plentiful bowls of chankonabe, the “sumo stew” wrestlers prepare and eat before matches. The hearty broth is loaded with fortifying protein and vegetables. This, paired with the live streamed bimonthly grand tournaments, makes for a lively event, bringing hungry first time and long-standing sumo fans ringside.

    This round of SUMO STEW will feature Chicken & Yuba Chankonabe made by Brooklyn’s MoMo Sushi Shack. momosushishack.com

    Every guest will also get a special bento box, composed of Japanese-inspired dishes from top local chefs, including (subject to change):

    – Spicy Koji-Miso-Marinated Grilled Chicken by Wasan Brooklyn
    – Pork Belly Okonomiyaki by Otafuku
    – Ramen, Calamansi Ponzu, Panko, Prosciutto and Yolk by OKA
    – Carrot & Turnip Pickles by Samesa

    Our hosts at The Brooklyn Brewery will have on tap a selection of draft beers, from their year-round offerings, seasonal pours, and limited availability brews, including Sorachi Ace, an unfiltered golden farmhouse ale named after the Sorachi region of Hokkaido, Japan, and made with a Japanese hop varietal developed in the 1970’s, and only recently revived in Washington state. brooklynbrewery.com

    Nikka Whisky USA, the outstanding distillery that set off the Japanese whisky movement when founded by Masataka Taketsuru in 1934 will provide bottles of Nikka Coffey Grain to be served as a signature cocktail called “Makushita’s Revenge” by Joshua Levie of The Richardson (therichardsonnyc.com). nikka.com

    Also pouring will be Mizu Shochu 美鶴乃舞, a producer of Japanese shochu in Arita, Japan. Made from fermented barley and black koji, the refreshingly smooth 70-proof spirit will be offered neat or on ice with a slice of cucumber. mizushochu.com

    We’ll have plenty of sake from SOTO SAKE. sotosake.com

    ITO EN, global leaders in green tea and innovative beverages, will be showcasing their award-winning matcha LOVE. itoen.com

    And if all that’s not enough, we’ll end with a special dessert from Mr. Mochi. mrmochi.com

    It wouldn’t be a sumo party without tenugui, traditional hand dyed Japanese cotton towels from our good friend Ruri Kippenbrock of Wuhao newyork Inc. wuhaonyc.com
