Cheese & Sake Tasting: Winter Warmers


Date: Thursday, 28 February 2018
Time: 7.00 - 9.30 pm
Venue: La Fromagerie HIGHBURY

La Fromagerie first discovered the beauty of Sake paired with cheese back in 2012 - it was a bold experiment, but our first tentative steps have led to more events and an evolution of flavours and pairings. For this special winter edition, we’ll be looking at unusual pairings, such as burrata with shoyu & wasabi, and warming specialities such as a sake fondue - all paired with winter sakes.

We are delighted to welcome Asami Tasaka from World Sake Import to lead us through the chosen Sake, and our Highbury Manager Ed Billins & colleague Kiko Ito will talk through the cheese selection they have devised as the perfect accompaniment.

This is a truly memorable tasting experience, and one that will surely open up discussion throughout the event. It is one of our favourite workshops as it shows two very different worlds joining together in harmony.
