2nd Annual Take no Tsuyu Sake Pairing and Lecture this Sunday!!!
Sake Pairing with Take-no-Tsuyu Brewery from Yamagata, Japan
This month, we have a special guest from Japan to do the pairing. Masao Aisawa was with us a year ago, providing wonderful sake. Weâ€™d like to continue this tradition of having him this year again. Over the brief history of Sozai Restaurant, Take no Tsuyu (Bamboo Tears) Junmai has become the â€œSake of the Inner Sunset,â€ a huge hit with anyone seduced to try it by General Manager Gil Payne. It is Sozaiâ€™s top selling Sake, and Gilâ€™s absolute favorite sake to have with Izakaya-style tapas! To take advantage of Take no Tsuyu owner, Masao-sanâ€™s brief visit to the Bay Area, we once again have the honor of inviting you to experience a sake pairing with five of his wonderful sakes with four specially crafted tapas plates by Chef Mari. Youâ€™ll have the added benefit and honor of meeting him and hearing the story of this outstanding kura from Yamagata-ken. We are also inviting a secret, special guest Chef, who will pairs his/her wonderful food with Genzo Haguro Honjozo!!!
