Looking for something different to enhance your cheeseboard? Reach for sake instead of wine!
Join us at West London Wine School for an evening introduction to sake and cheese pairing. Matching sake with cheese is actually much easier than with wine, thanks to the power of umami (savouriness, the "fifth taste"), fermentation (both cheese and sake are naturally fermented products) and lactic acid (present in both sake and cheese).
We will share some simple tips and tricks to wow your guests and amaze their tastebuds, while introducing you to some classic styles as well as more unusual types of sake with oodles of umami and lactic acid thanks to their historic artisanal production methods.
Our sake tutor Sarah (also an Academy of Cheese Associate, currently undertaking her Level 2) will cover the basics of sake and cheese production and information about each producer, along with general sake pairing principles. You'll pick up lots of useful information to help you choose the perfect sake and cheese match, and find out which sake styles you like most. This class also makes the perfect gift for the foodie in your life!
On the evening we will try six different cheeses across a range of styles from cheesemonger Hamish Johnston, paired with six premium sake.
