Some sakes are light and delicate, others robust and full-flavored. The first Aftertaste event of 2008 focuses on those that go best with Japanese comfort foods served at izakaya drinking spots throughout Japan.

The evening kicks off with a 10-minute talk on how the mysterious “5th taste” umami contributes to sake flavor. After that the sampling begins with a total of 36 junmai, ginjo and daiginjo sakes, including gold and silver award winners from the 2007 U.S. National Sake Appraisal. At 7:00 p.m. the appetizer buffet opens for more convivial sake tasting and socializing until 8:30.
