Throughout the three day pop up, Japanese Sake Sommelier and Sake Expert will be inviting you to experience a selection of authentic Japanese sakes alongside an expertly paired seafood tasting menu. This pop-up will also offer the opportunity to learn the etiquette and history behind sake tasting.
JFOODO hopes to break the stereotype “seafood goes well with white wine” and instead wants to encourage the pairing of Japanese sake with seafood instead. Sake is both a beverage and an expression of Japanese identity. It embodies craftsmanship, innovation and versatility. For the past 2,000 years, its creators have harnessed nature and science to craft a brew that has developed hand-in-hand with Japan’s unique culinary traditions. Once confined to Japanese menus, sake is becoming the drink of choice for lovers of fish and shellfish.
As part of this “Escape the Ordinary –The fresh harmony of Seafood and Sake” concept, you'll not only enjoy a regular ‘seafood and white wine’ pairing but will also enjoy a new ‘seafood and sake’ experience. This mirroring structure will illustrate the contrast between The Oystermen’s ‘ordinary’ seafood and white wine pairing with the fresh and exciting ‘Escape the Ordinary’ concept, with an expert sake sommelier to recommend an excellent beverage pairing.
