Cheese & Sake Workshop


Date: Tuesday, June 19 2018
Time: 7.00 - 9.30 pm
Venue: La Fromagerie MARYLEBONE

Discover the world of Namazake (Raw Sake) & Artisan Hand Made Cheese

La Fromagerie first discovered the beauty of Sake paired with cheese back in 2012 when they presented their first tasting event. It was a bold experiment, but our first tentative steps have led to more events. This workshop explores the world of Namazake, Raw Sake. It is, like unpasteurised cheese, a more interesting and complex drink with beautifully vivid flavours and lively refreshing characteristics. We are delighted to welcome Asami Tasaka, from World Sake Import to lead us through the five chosen Sake, and our colleague Kiko Ito together with Patricia and the Cheese Room team will talk through the cheese selection they have devised ranging from soft to hard to strong that will be perfect accompaniments. 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.
