This was Great Fun .. appeasing the Goddess.
Sake is NOT wine, but it does go with food and can be enjoyed by itself.
We’re told: To start, sake is a fermented rice beverage that originated in Japan. In Japanese, sake is known as nihonshu (nihon means Japan, and -shu means alcohol) and is the country’s national alcoholic beverage. As hard as it may be to choose a sake from a list full of beverage options, every single sake on the market today consists of four basic ingredients—“rice, water, yeast, and koji,”
It has a stronger after taste than most wines.
We weren’t even sure what to serve it in: and decided on white wine glasses. Next day we tried shot glasses. Third night, South African Glasses with Tree House Pasta
For dinner, we did Italian egg Pasta Noodles in a stir fry. Garlic (lots of it), pea pods, zucchini slices, red pepper, cherry tomatoes, red onion, mushrooms, chicken strips. Fresh Parsley and Basil to top it off with some fresh parmesan. Belgian olive country style loaf.
Sake also also works well just to sip for several nights whilst preparing the next delectable delight.
Get your head outside wine with dinner, and embace something outside your comfort zone.
The name tells everything about this sake. This is the sake that sake brewmasters want to drink on regular basis themselves. Crafted using local “Gohyaku-man-goku” sake rice, this can be enjoyed chilled or heated.
It is smooth with a clean finish.
