It was in the reception room of the Consulate General of Japan in Marseille that we have an appointment for a guided tasting. First a 30 minute presentation about sake, during which we present and taste the sake "as is", and tasting of the same sakes together with preparationmade by Chef Consulate.
Matching food and sake, a great success with a series of exquisite bites that go great with all the selected sakes, precisely to be very different from each other: Junmai, Yamahai, unpasteurized sake, sparkling and even an aged sake ! A real challenge, very well raised.
