How To Pair Sushi And Sake, According To The Experts
The Sake Sessions is a fun way to learn the technique
Sake and sushi are a match made in heaven, but did you know that it's possible to refine this pairing to create an even more exquisite experience? Learn how at Sake Sessions, a virtual sake pairing seminar and training slated for Friday, January 15, 2021 at 7:00 in the evening.
A good technique is to approach sake and sushi pairings much like wine pairing. Every kind of sushi has its own unique flavor profile, depending on the fish's oil, protein and fat content. Some sushi will be fattier, richer and oilier than others. What you want is to find the sakes that will contrast or match this flavor profile and bring forth the best and most beguiling flavors on your palate.
Exciting, isn't it? We think it's a fun thing to do on a Friday night. Sign up and get a Japanese grazing box from Yurakuen, three bottles of The Shot premium sake from Gekkeikan, and an introduction to a new, palate-pleasing adventure.
