Sake Basics at Kappa Sake House
Similar to ordering wine â€“ when unsure, choosing a Sake is often the result of liking the label, price or your host’s recommendation. But armed with a little knowledge, you can easily start ordering Sake with confidence that will pair with your mood as well as your food.
This introduction to appreciating Sake will provide attendees with the basics of how to read a Sake label in a store or from a menu. The night provides a tasting of 5 distinct styles of Sake, each with an appropriate food pairing, so that customers can taste the differences between a brash and bold Nama, a delicate and silky Junmai Dai-Gingo, and others in between.
By the end of the pairing, theyâ€™ll have tasted some terrific Sake paired with delicious Japanese tapas, and will leave with a new appreciation for Sake as well as a little cultural and brewing history.
