I thought I’d start a series of very brief posts where I show my experiences of trying various sake pairings with the sakes we offer in our shop.
I’m a big fan of trying sake with non-Japanese foods and I encourage everyone to try!
This sake paring was a big win. Gentle Breeze is a great balance between aroma and flavour so the fruitiness of the sake calmed the fishiness of the herring, and the umami in the tomato and sake complemented each other beautifully. Finally the gentle acidity in the sake was more than enough to deal with the creamy mozzarella without overwhelming it.
