2. 12th June – Sake Tasting with Japanese Seafood Bites
As part of London Seafood Festival at Battersea Power Station, Tonkotsu open their doors for an evening of sake and Japanese seafood bites.
Our Director, Ollie, will talk guests through the sake brewing process and flavour profiles whilst you taste five different sakes along with Japanese seafood snacks from Tonkotsu’s menu.
This is a quick one-hour session that will give you a good basic knowledge of the different types of sake, how it’s made and what to drink it with, giving you the confidence to order the slightly enigmatic drink in Japanese restaurants.
The event begins at 7pm so we recommend arriving at 6.50pm to allow time for check in.
Date: Wednesday 12th June
15th June – Wine Gang at HAC London (details here)
