Sake and the Umami Factor

Japanese sake is renowned for its chameleon-like abilities, from pairing seamlessly with food to changing profile at varying service temperatures. Please join James Beard Foundation Award winning authors Nancy Matsumoto and Michael Tremblay as they explore these aspects in addition to explaining the sake basics and sake’s super power: umami. The session will also take you on a tasting tour of sakes that are not readily available in the LCBO from some of Japan’s most fascinating corners.
